After Hours Live – Live music with a twist of faith!
Our Next Live Music Event:
6th September 2019 – Open Mic
Our much anticipated annual Open Mic Night is coming on the first Friday in September.
Performances in the past have included stand-up comedy, singing, playing a musical instrument and poetry reading. There is not enough space for acrobatics I’m afraid! But as you can see, performances and performers are all very varied and you never know quite what to expect – which adds to the fun of the evening.
Performers are offered a 10 minute slot that can be booked in advance by contacting us. Slots are already being booked so don’t delay, book your slot today.
If you are not performing please still do come along simply to enjoy the evening. Performers are always grateful for a friendly audience.

6th December 2019 – Christine Asamoah
Christine Asamoah’s gospel-songbirdlike vocals are reminiscent of a younger Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston and Beyoncé! Her vulnerable yet passionate sound project pictures of innocent love, faith and life experience illustrated beautifully through powerful ballads and addictive lyric plays.

Here’s a little about us . . .
After Hours Live started in January 2012 and has become an established and well supported live music event in the community.
After Hours Live is a monthly event that takes place on the first Friday of every month in the heart of the Fens. It combines first-class entertainment with a twist of faith. Performers come from far and wide across the UK, as well as some great home-grown local talent.
Starting at 7:30pm, the doors open (7pm) and Octavia’s cafe swings into action brewing up steaming cups of tea and luscious cappuccinos and lattes. Free entry means that you can come and enjoy the comfortable cafe atmosphere and still be able to afford a cup of your favourite beverage and maybe even treat yourself to an indulgent slice of cake! Some performers may also bring CDs they have recorded or books they have written that will also be available on the night.
After Hours Live is an initiative of The King’s Church in Wisbech. We would like to thank Octavia’s Cafe which is run by the Ferry Project for their support and superb venue. Every beverage and slice of cake bought at Octavia’s Cafe goes to the Ferry Project charity who seek to re-house and rehabilitate the homeless.
