Tea House Theatre

Winner of Time Out Love London Awards 2014

We are based in an old Victorian public house that opened in 1886 on the site of the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens; immortalised as the ‘Vanity Fair’ in Thackeray’s eponymous novel.

We serve some of the best loose leaf teas available, proper sandwiches and homemade cakes; not to mention the best full English breakfast in London. Our teas have individual subtle flavours which would be overpowered by the instant, coarse, hit of coffee, so we do not sell it.

We make our own marmalade and jams, all for sale by the jar and all our teas can be bought by the ounce. Our meat comes from our local butcher and our fruit and vegetables from the local market gardens around us.

We are trying to be different. We will not hurry you. If you visit us on your lunch break, then have one, you will be more productive in the afternoon. If you want to have a meeting, we will not disturb you. If you are ‘working from home’, we have wifi. If you have children, we have highchairs, a chest of toys, and milkshakes. We always have the daily papers, so please, relax, and share in what we are trying to create, take a load off, and have a cuppa.

Marcus Reeves

Over the last two decades, writer and performer Marcus Reeves has reinvented himself repeatedly, with incarnations as an actor, drag queen, singer songwriter and performance poet. His show Postcards from God - The Sister Wendy Musical has been presented at Jermyn Street Theatre in London's West End and at Hackney Empire Studio Theatre, with its Concept Cast Recording receiving airplay from Elaine Paige and Graham Norton on BBC Radio Two.

As part of London's alternative cabaret circuit he has performed alongside such luminaries as David Hoyle, Dickie Beau and Jonny Woo, sung in Our Lady J’s gospel choir at Soho Theatre and supported RuPaul’s Drag Race star Adore Delano at The Meth Lab. Through Southbank Centre's Voicelab, he has performed with Mercury Music Prize winners Elbow, jazz improvisation icon Bobby McFerrin, beat boxer Shlomo and UK jazz legend Ian Shaw in choirs led by Dom Stichbury, Laka D and Mary King. More recently, he joined a star studded celebration of David Bowie at Union Chapel which also featured Glen Matlock, David McAlmont, The Magic Numbers and Dan Gillespie Sells of The Feeling, and supported Tom Robinson at a fundraiser for the Russian LGBT Network.

Eckoes

British born Nigerian ECKOES is both a sharp-sighted futurist and a nostalgic sentimentalist. In her music and her listening habits (she’s an avowed fan of both James Blake and Lionel Richie) she straddles the line between cutting edge textures and soulful pop hooks. A prolific songwriter outside of her solo project, she’s penned tracks for Tara Sutaria (The Disney Channel) and co-written and performed on releases with Danny Darko, Alex Banks, Space Jump Salute and Le Visiteur.

Her debut single ‘Valentine’ garnered support from the MOBO Awards, AFROPUNK and Fame Magazine, shooting up the digital Hype Machine charts, and she even played to Kevin Spacey at the 24 Hour Play after party along the way. As a writer and singer ECKOES constantly tests the water, fusing styles she likes with effortless grace. By turns alternative R&B, swelling soul, urban electronica, and ambient, ECKOES’ project finds itself in the hinterlands of pop. Like FKA Twigs, ECKOES isn’t beholden to reliving the past by simply repackaging it. Atop her distinctive sound are her vocals, unique, inimitable, but with a sharp ear for classic hooks. Inside those vocals she pours her feelings and her experiences.

ECKOES is one of the most intriguing and emotive new outpourings to emerge from the London circuit. At the helm of her project she stands, a six foot weaver of hypnotic sounds ever refining her craft. On the one hand familiar, relatable, on the other, a statuesque artist with an aura that’s all her own.

Harry Quinn

Harry Quinn is a singer-songwriter from the UK.

His debut album "Parallels" was released on 7th April 2017. It features a distinctive mix of moods and grooves, delivered by warm soulful vocals, dynamic guitar playing and a group of excellent musicians as part of the Harry Quinn Band (full album credits available here).
