Event details

Multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and presenter Anna Phoebe shares a new personal journey in the stunning space of St Margaret’s Church.

Anna wrote her one-person show earlier this year in between performing at the O2 and producing a new hybrid DJ and live collaboration with DJ Mary Anne Hobbs, which recently opened for The Smile at BBC 6 Music Festival.

Unlike the expansive soundtracks she writes for award-winning TV productions (BBC, Apple TV+, ITV, Channel 4), Anna explores textures and sounds within intimate venues. Enjoy music that is not just heard, but experienced, enveloping listeners in a sonic landscape that is at once beautiful and mysterious, familiar and otherworldly.

Join Anna as she presents a rich immersive musical response to the natural world.
