like listening to music - check out the site
At Sofar, we like to ask: who's ever been to a bad gig?

For some, the crowd was too loud or maybe the beer was warm. For others, the sound system wasn't doing the artist justice. Or maybe someone was in the line of view, snapping selfies all night. Whatever the experience, it just wasn't what you hoped or expected. The magic of a live event experience has been lost.

Sofar Sounds was founded to bring back that magic.

In 2009, Rafe Offer invited some friends over to a London flat for a low-key, intimate gig. Eight people gathered in the living room to listen to live music performed by friend and musician Dave Alexander. They shared a drink, and sat on the floor, attentively listening to the music. The room was so quiet, you could hear the clock ticking in the background.

Quickly, what started as a hobby in London spread into a global community for artists and audiences to come together in unique and welcoming spaces - with an added element of surprise - to share, discover, create and, hopefully make a friend or find their new favorite band along the way.

Today, Sofar Sounds is a community of thousands of artists, hosts, fans, travelers and more, putting on hundreds of secret, intimate events per month, across 436 cities around the world.

St Margaret’s Hospice Light Up a Life 2019 – Yeovil
1st December 2019

We at St. Margaret’s Hospice warmly invite you to join us for this year’s Light up a Life service at St John’s Church, Yeovil.
at 4.00pm.
Light up a Life celebration service offers a way to commemorate loved ones at this time of year.
These events help families and friends to come together to remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones. The events are open to anyone, not just people whose loved one was cared for by a hospice. Each gentle, uplifting service provides an opportunity to come together, to pay tribute to cherished family members or friends, and to light a candle in their memory. Usually, the most important part of these events is the opportunity to dedicate a message in memory of a loved one by lighting a candle, hanging a message on a tree, recording the name of someone special in a book of remembrance, or reading it aloud.
Do join us, we would love to see you there to light a candle and share your memories.

‘Space Oddity’. ‘Suspicious Minds’. ‘Pinball Wizard’. ‘Whole Lotta Love’. ‘Come Together’ – 1969 could easily be said to be a vintage year for music, the end of a decade that changed the world and the introduction to one that would prove equally inspirational. It would also see the birth of a band that would start as an idea to electrify traditional music and would go on to become one of the most enduring stories in the folk world and beyond. Fifty years on and Steeleye Span are set to mark this incredible milestone with new album EST’D 1969 and a tour that will celebrate a band that are as creative and vital now as ever.
