The Candlelit Concerts | A Secret Gig Series In Peckham’s Asylum Chapel

This event is full of secrets.

See, Secret Adventures – best known for alternative London activities such as kayaking down Regent’s Canal to Hackney’s CRATE Brewery – have just announced a series of secret gigs…

…in Peckham’s Grade II-listed Asylum Chapel.

Once a month, they’re inviting you to pack yourself a load of cushions and blankets and set up camp within the Asylum’s crumbling, pastel-coloured walls. Here, bathed in candlelight, a small selection of artists will perform for you, entirely unplugged.


The exact line-up will be kept secret until the day of the event, although every artist will be hand-picked, not only based on their talent, but also keeping the in mind the intimate, stripped-back setting.

As well as music, they’ll also have a pop-up bar (with mulled wine), and somewhere serving hot food, meaning you can turn up – perhaps with a partner or a couple of close friends – and spend the evening there.

Sound good? Good. Although best to keep this one a little hush hush, something tells us it’s not going to take long to sell out.


NOTE: The Candlelit Concerts at The Asylum have sold out for the rest of 2019. They have just released tickets, however, for early 2020 – 11th January, 7th February, 13th & 20th March.
