The Lost Lectures


Since the very beginning, there’s been one elusive space that we’ve dreamt of bringing back to life. An abandoned theatre way above the Skyline of London, that has remained under lock and key and closed to the public for over 65 years. A space so in the shadows, that few even know of its existence: for those who do, it has remained tantilisingly out of reach…

Until now (!!!)

After years of whispered negotiations, we have been granted unprecedented access to open its doors for first and possibly the last time. Lostlings this one is for you and we still can’t quite believe it! We are delighted to present ‘The Lost Act’ on 3th & 4th October 2014 in a space that will literally blow your little minds!

Taking to the stage will be a brilliant array of speakers and performers. The show will run from 7pm – 11pm (doors open at 6.30), the lucky few joining us are promised an unbelievably rare experience and a glimpse of London that few living Londoners have shared.

As ever, there will be interactive demos galore, the  ‘Lost Bar’ will be open all night serving all manor of elixirs (soft or strong) and Street Feast will be providing the foody festivities.

Lostlings, we can’t wait to see you there. As ever…

Keep it to a whisper.

     Thank you to for supporting The Lost Act

Nick Davies

Nick has gone where countless politicians, journalists and police officials dare not tread: the Murdoch Empire.

Charlie Dark (Run Dem Crew)

Charlie Dark is the shadowy figure behind Run Dem Crew. His story starts with a series of solitary night-time runs. He chose night to hide his ineptitude (years travelling the world as a DJ and partying with the Beastie Boys had ransacked his stamina). Soon, he became rather good at running, but stuck to the same format; touring the streets…

She's been rapping since the age of nine and has already amassed a…

Almost Royal

For those of you who missed the hype, Ed Gamble and Amy Hoggart are the stars behind Almost Royal, a nationwide prank that caught America off guard. The comic duo pretended to be dim-witted, distantly related blue-bloods embarking on a tour across the States, straining credulity and upping the ante wherever they turned. Like Borat but with posh people, we…

Public Service Broadcasting

Plummy British accents, propaganda clips and electro synths make an explosive mix: a lesson that Public Service Broadcasting are currently teaching adoring crowds around the world! Little is known about the masterminds behind this two-man outfit other than their names – J. Willgoose, Esq. And Wrigglesworth-- and we have a sneaking suspicion that these might be fabricated. Their music involves plucking…
