Event information

Experience the electrifying collaboration between Speakers Corner Quartet and the Guildhall Session Orchestra as they join forces for Chaka Khan’s Meltdown at the Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall.

For 15 years, Raven Bush, Peter Bennie, Kwake Bass, and Biscuit have been the heartbeat of South London's music scene, uniting artists and audiences alike as the Speakers Corner Quartet.

From their roots as the house band at legendary, Brixton-based spoken word and hip-hop session Speakers Corner, they've collaborated with legends like Sampha, Kae Tempest, and Shabaka Hutchings.

Their debut album Further Out Than The Edge captivated critics, and now, in 2024, they're breaking new sonic ground. Coming together with the 35-piece Guildhall Session Orchestra, they present brand new compositions alongside orchestral reworks from their debut album.

Haze and strobe lighting may be used during this performance. Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
