Surbiton Summer Salons Online

Following the decision to cancel this year’s Summer Salons the Surbiton Summer Salons team have been contacting artists that would have been performing this year and those that have performed in previous editions of the festival. Due to their generosity of time and spirit, they are now able to offer an online festival this year.

Running from 22nd – 26th July, they’ll be streaming short concerts and workshops on their new YouTube Channel.  The events will become available at the advertised times and remain available for a week if you can’t watch at the time.

The videos are free to watch but with each video you’ll see a Paypal Donate link if you would like to make a donation.  All proceeds will be split between Surbiton Salons and The CornerHOUSE Community Arts Centre.

And if you’re interested in storytelling, they’ve also got a live storytelling workshop being held on Zoom!

Details of all of the concerts and workshops can be found below with more information on the Surbiton Salons website.
