Laura Marling and James Acaster head up our big CALM party!

Here’s some bloody good news. We’ve teamed up with our pals over at Omeara & Flat Iron Square to throw a massive party on December 16th, and you’re invited!

On December 16th from 6pm, the whole Omeara & Flat Iron Square site in London will be split into two separately ticketed events: music at Omeara and comedy at Après London.

Heading up the music event in Omeara will be British musician Laura Marling, with short sets by Bears Den, The Staves, Isaac Gracie, Lewis Capaldi, and an acoustic set by Mystery Jets.

Simultaneously bringing the laughs at Après London, Flat Iron Square’s alpine ski chalet, the comedy event will be headlined by award-winning comedian James Acaster alongside sets by Stephen Bailey, Sophie Duker, Suzi Ruffell, and Pierre Novellie. MC on the night will be Jarlath Regan.

Music at Omeara:
Laura Marling
Bears Den
The Staves
Mystery Jets
Lewis Capaldi
Isaac Gracie

Comedy at Après London:
James Acaster
Stephen Bailey
Sophie Duker
Pierre Novellie
Suzi Ruffell
Jarlath Regan (MC)

Tickets for both individual shows are available HERE from 10am on Wednesday 7th November via a £5 ballot. All funds will go to CALM, allowing us to continue supporting men who may be going through a tough time in their life. Fans can sign up to the ballot as many times as they like and all winners will be selected at random and offered two tickets each. Please note, the gigs are 16+.

For those unlucky enough not to win tickets to the music or comedy events via the ballot, fear not! Everyone is welcome along to the party, and there will be acoustic sets and DJs playing throughout the afternoon and evening right across Flat Iron Square and their newly installed Alpine Village.

“As an organisation with roots in the music and comedy communities, we’re delighted to be joining with Omeara and Flat Iron Square to bring together these incredible artists and comedians. Suicide remains the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK, but events like this enable us to engage an audience in this issue while raising the funds that will allow us to continue supporting men who may be going through a tough time in their lives.”

Simon Gunning, CEO of CALM
