It may seem like lockdown has halted the arts once again, but The Cockpit Theatre in London’s Marylebone has other ideas. They believe that where there’s will – and Wifi – there’s a way. And so, they will be continuing to bring you a mix of entertainment and events through live-streaming and on-demand.
So, what has The Cockpit got to offer us this January? Well, they promise to keep your spirits raised and the arts alive with events to help you move your feet (albeit around the kitchen), warm your heart, and tickle your funny bones.
Here’s what’s coming up…
A Nossa Bossa – Our Rhythm
24th January 2021 at 7.30pm
Enjoy an intimate evening listening to Bossa Nova and Samba songs performed by Brazilian singer Marcio da Silva and guitarist Guillermo Hill. They’ll be performing and streaming live from the round in The Cockpit.

Gareth & Friends
