Our ambiĀ­tion is to culĀ­tiĀ­vate an audiĀ­ence that encourĀ­ages and supĀ­ports artists, perĀ­formĀ­ers & DJā€™s, to explore their curiosiĀ­ties, new styles and forms or find interĀ­estĀ­ing ways to appreĀ­ciĀ­ate herĀ­itage and old influĀ­ences. Our music polĀ­iĀ­cy is formed by, but not restrictĀ­ed to, a pasĀ­sion for elecĀ­tronĀ­ic music, disĀ­co, rarĀ­iĀ­ties, psyĀ­cheĀ­delĀ­ic & experĀ­iĀ­menĀ­tal endeavĀ­ours. ExplorĀ­ing unheard music and sharĀ­ing it, creĀ­atĀ­ing an atmopĀ­shere to take the audeince to difĀ­ferĀ­ent places.

Faith In Strangers is about the trust between peoĀ­ple that creĀ­ates moments of uniĀ­ty; ComĀ­mon ground for uncomĀ­mon expeĀ­riĀ­ences. We give artists the room to experĀ­iĀ­ment and shape these moments. We are not interĀ­estĀ­ed in generĀ­ic,ā€‹ā€˜crowd pleasersā€™ and music you could hear at any bar across the UK

So far weā€™ve had a diverse range of selecĀ­tors, DJā€™s and live elecĀ­tronĀ­ic acts as we gear up to launch the live music stage. Some artists weā€™ve had play below.


Weā€™re a DIY space with a tiny but highĀ­ly effecĀ­tive team. Weā€™ve built and designed everyĀ­thing from the ground up.

Audio & Acoustics

Massive geeks on sound, from the very beginning we've thought about the acoustics of the build, angled ceilings and walls, acoustic treatments and finely tuned sound systems. We have our own custom built sound system 'Poseidon' - which is an audiophile PA system, meaning it's both suitable for high fidelty listening and live music that requires a fast impulse response.

Poseidon Speakers

Lighting & Art

We've also designed and built our own custom dynamic light & art installations, built within the structure of the building to create an ever changing immersive experience.

Stairway of Faith

We have a strong focus on elecĀ­tronĀ­ic music but will also be putting on music from around the world, Jazz, ClasĀ­siĀ­cal, live AmbiĀ­ent and TechĀ­no, Noise, Bosa Nova etc.
