The Forum presents:
Dove House + The Secret Crowd + The Unknown + Ryan Weeks Band
Entry Requirements: 16+
We are celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2018 and as well as all of the established touring acts we are bringing in to the venue throughout the year, we wanted to also focus our energy on setting up opportunities for new bands and musicians to play the venue that play original music.
Straight-up indie rock n roll, savage riffs, heart-thumping bass lines and drum beats that will send you into hysteria. Dove House embodies the highs and lows of modern life with undertones of despair and contrasting highlights of peace, love and prosperity. This band won't take you out for dinner; they'll take you to a rough and ready bar and make you drink tequila until sunrise.
"These boys are soon to be a household name" - Guy Bellamy, Meridian FM
Supported fast-rising UK bands Clay and Kassassin Street on their 2015 UK nationwide tour also supported Declan McKenna and Lisbon on their 2016 UK tour in Brighton.

The Secret Crowd
The Secret Crowd are a fun and lively four piece from North Kent, playing a mix of feel-good, pop/ rock originals and covers.
Our line up consists of Sophie, as lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Jack on bass, Remy on Lead Guitar and Matt playing drums. Our sound provides a depth of versatility, from relaxed acoustic settings, to energetic and upbeat ambiences, guaranteed to captivate any audience.
To end 2017, we have started recorded their recent EP, with Keston Cobblers Frontman, Matt Lowe and hope to release this in the near future!

Ryan Weeks Band
Singer songwriter from Tunbridgewells, after buying my first guitar at twenty while distracting myself from assignments I knew I had found love and have been hooked to playing guitar and singing ever since.
