Daylight Music

Free lunchtime concerts!

'Banish inflated ticket prices, bad beer and interminable waits for the band to appear, and instead grab yourself a cup of tea and a bacon butty in the beautiful surroundings of Islington’s gothic Union Chapel and sit down at noon to tap your toes to some of the best in contemporary balladry and folk-hued tunes.', June 2011

Daylight Music is a dazzling idea, presented by the Union Chapel and produced by Arctic Circle, to open up London's Best Live Music Venue to a shiny new daytime crowd and provide a rather exciting platform for artists. Many artists who have performed at Daylight have gone on to become well known musicians in their field and even come back to perform a headline show at Union Chapel. Names you might recognise include Laura Marling and The Leisure Society.

For the perfect start to your weekend, the Margins Daylight Cafe also provides a wonderful spread of teas, coffee, homemade cakes and light snacks. All profits go to the Margins Homelessness Project based at Union Chapel.

If you are interested in performing in a Daylight Music concert please contact at Arctic Circle.
