Summer in The Ditch

Nights of live performance, drag and cabaret

Join us for Summer in The Ditch – a series of artist takeovers of the basement space at Shoreditch Town Hall, featuring a glorious programme of all things camp, queer and cult...

With experimental new work, and rough and ready sessions from musicians, artists, poets and performers, anything can happen and the unexpected is always welcome. So meet us in The Ditch for some mischief and mayhem.

Kia's Lyrical poetry is an unapologetic exploration of queer relationships, friendship and community. They are particularly interested in queer coming of age narratives and their beautifully messy complexities. An over-sharer and attention seeker, get ready for tales of lesbian drama, late nights and the people they fell in love with on the bus this morning.

Ruti (They/Them) is a an Essex born singer-songwriter, known for their enchanting blend of R&B, pop and jazz. With their distinctive voice and knack for crafting unforgettable melodies, Ruti continues to carve out their own unique space in the music industry. Instagram: @rutiiiiiiiiiii

Maria Rosenberg (She/Her) is a songwriter based in London. Her music is a blend of modern and old, blues and trip-hop sadness with attitude. Dreamy smokiness with badass poetic fantasy where love stories meet childhood trauma, where David Lynch meets yo momma.  From recording with the legendary Stuart Matthewman of Sade to writing at Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page’s house, Maria has hosted drag music nights with fellow queer performer Tahini Molasses and is a cast member of Polish drag troupe Slav 4 You. She has also performed at Jack White's iconic Third Man Records in London. An icon of sad sinners, she is currently recording new tunes. Stay tuned for more smoky, steamy, sexy sad music.

Taking their name from their Palestinian grandmother’s namesake meaning “deviation”, Etaf pushes the boundaries of their music to break new ground, challenging social norms and creating music that resonates on a deep emotional level. Their commitment to authentically celebrating their Arabic heritage, and ability to weave beautiful stories together through song, makes for an unforgettable performance.
