After Hours Live – Live music with a twist of faith!

Octavia’s Cafe Update – although Octavia’s Cafe is closed until further notice, After Hours Live is still hiring the space (the Leonard Room) and will be continuing as normal. We will also be serving hot drinks and cakes.

Our Next Live Music Event:

7th February – The Family Table

Stories traverse the every day realities of life and connect us with the fundamentals of being human. In a content saturated world, good storytelling has never been more important. At The Family Table we tell better stories.

We believe that the best creatvitiy comes through collaboration. Blending together the right passions and skills to create something unique and perfectly suited to it’s task.

That’s why we started The Family Table. A creative agency that tells better stories and collaborates with like minded creatives to produce excellence. Whether it’s through film, music, photography, writing or design – we connect the right story with your audience.

As true creatives too, we have ambitions of our own. We want to produce films that tell the stories that matter and give a platform to songwriters and creatives to produce and release their own material.

We’re based in Norwich, United Kingdom. A city heaped in it’s creative roots, sprawling with streets of intrigue and located near to the famous Norfolk Broads.

Octavia’s Cafe . . .

Located in one of Wisbech’s historic Georgian Grade II listed buildings along the South Brink of the river Nene, Octavia’s Cafe makes the perfect location for a special evening of intimate live musical entertainment. Hot cups of coffee and tea are available along with some gorgeous cakes.

Octavia’s Cafe is situated within the Octavia View building which is owned and run by the Ferry Project. The Ferry Project is a homeless charity and every drink and slice of cake purchased goes to the charity and helps to improve the lives of others.

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.
