halfsies: WAKE UP GIGS - sunday 28 July 2019 - ace hotel, E1 - double show

12:30 - 14:30 + 15:00 - 17:00


We're thrilled to be pairing up with Ace Hotel Shoreditch to bring you a taste of what Wake Up Gigs are all about - enjoying live music with an audience of all ages.

Wake Up Gigs showcase new artists for parents to enjoy the best live bands and artists and the gig experience with their families.

We are back with another double header to kick off the summer holidays. Thrilled to welcome CECIL will join us with support to be announced. Tickets are available from Hoop and it is your choice of either early or late afternoon. 

Child friendly stuff: buggy parking space, soft play area, colouring in classic album covers, balloons, glitter painting, fully stocked baby changing facilities

Parent friendly stuff: amazing live music, friendly people, licensed bar, food available, easily accessible venue with lifts

Our Ace Hotel shows are the mini version of what a full Wake Up Gig would entail but feedback from parents is that they really enjoy the calm vibes and stunning views from the venue and the live music is the perfect accompaniment on a Sunday afternoon. The gig will take place at the Ace Hotel in their fantastic event space with skyline views of London. This is smaller than our previous venues, so tickets are limited. Tickets are £7 for parents and free for children.



Cecil’s self proclaimed “Off-Pop” style made waves in 2018 which saw her nominated for “Best Solo Female” at The U.M.A’s 2018. Cecil’s rise continued and has grabbed the attention of the national tabloids with her being placed on The Independents “Ones To Watch In 2019” list and the Berkshire born singer songwriter has also been tipped in “The Sun Newspaper” as a rising star.

Last year saw Cecil warm up for Jools Holland, warm up for the legendary Grace Jones with the BBC Introducing, play alongside the likes of Razorlight and many more huge acts.

With plenty of BBC support and being described as Lana Del Rey meets Gaga with a hint of Kate Bush, Cecil promises to be a hot prospect for 2019 and one you won’t want to miss
