What’s On

At Seven we aim to bring the best in local and regional performing arts, and great talent from further afield, plus a diverse range of interesting and entertaining films from all over the world.

Now that autumn is here, events have moved into Seven’s venue, which is laid out cabaret style in a socially distanced format. Events are by ticket only or on a Pay What You Feel basis – these are hard times for musicians and artists so please give generously.

Kings Cross (REMIX)

30th May 2019 - 8:00 pm

Kings Cross (Remix) uncovers the hidden histories of LGBTQ communities in London during the 1980s. Tom Marshman uncovers those histories through memories of the Kings Cross area; an area that has undergone radical change since its day as a hub of LGBTQ communities, bars and culture.

Woven together from the stories of people who experienced it first hand, Tom’s show celebrates a raucous, riotous time in the life of central London where sexuality was for exploring, HIV was causing tragedy, and rights were to be fought for.

Commissioned by and developed with the support of Camden People’s Theatre.
“A tour de force performance” ★★★★ The Gay UK

“An engrossing and psychedelic time warp that makes us connect with a personal side of history we tend to forget about.” ★★★★ Grumpy Gay Critic

“There’s a powerful message here…As long as those like Marshman continue to fly the flag and dance to the tunes, we know their legacy is in good hands.” Theatre Bubble

“A well considered performance of a beautifully sentimental story.” The London Economic

“A poignant eulogy for a bygone era….[Tom Marshman] is an adept story-teller and his performance brims with warmth, charm and affection.” North Four

“One of the most immersive and exciting performances of queer history you’re likely to find” Bristol 247

“[The show] is eye-opening as a history, but it also draws daunting parallels between the epidemic of forty years ago and the situation we find ourselves in today.” Exeunt

“Evocative social history… the artist’s affection for the stories he’s telling is palpable” The Stage

“One of the most exciting things about Marshman’s work is his ability to pick a seemingly small subject and peel back the layers to expose something unexpectedly profound” Big Issue
