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

Our Next Live Music Event – 2nd March 2018


Originally from Scotland, singer songwriter guitarist Stuart Barbour now lives with his family in West Sussex where he is the worship pastor at The Point Church of England in Burgess Hill.

As well as writing songs about his Christian faith, Stuart also writes songs about social justice and the environment. He has also written for Off The Fence, a Brighton based charity supporting the homeless and people in need.

Stuart’s acoustic blues guitar style of music and songs with a story to tell reaches a wide range of audience and works well in a café style environment.

6 April 2018 – Rebekah Vyce

An experienced vocalist with a voice blending subtle tones of soul, folk & pop. A songwriter of beautiful melodies that will stay in your head for days, and lyrics that are honest, full of stories, hope and integrity – Rebekah’s music will captivate you. With piano based song writing, lush harmonies, real instruments, and simple but beautiful arrangements, this music is a brilliant gem in a crowded music industry.

Music is and has always been Rebekah’s love. Coming from a family of creatives, Rebekah has always had a strong desire to create and express herself through her music. Inspired and influenced by great songwriters such as Adele, Sara Bareilles, Marcus Mumford, Brooke Fraser, Jon Foreman and Michael & Lisa Gungor – Rebekah is a firm believer in music’s power to communicate and change atmospheres. She hopes that as she writes songs that express joy and process life in all its ups and downs, that her listeners will be impacted too.

4 May 2018 – Andrew Robinson

At the end of 2016 Andrew received fresh inspiration to write new songs and after a prolific spell of crafting new songs released an EP “Where The Light Shines”, which is an acoustic recording of songs that give a glimpse into his journey of faith over the last few years. There is so much darkness in the world but the songs on this EP point the listener back to the light. www.andrewrobinsonmusic.co.uk

Here’s a little about us . . .


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.

If you are a performer and are looking for an event to perform at, please contact us.
