Blow the Fuse are thrilled to have been awarded public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, ACE.

This is towards the recording of ARQ’s second album ‘A Magic Life’ and the costs of touring Autumn 2016 and Spring 2017. The funding will also enable us to incorporate ‘Tomorrow the Moon’ events and workshops into selected gigs in 2017.


We also continue our acclaimed season ‘ Tomorrow the Moon ‘ at the Vortex and at the Old Church on Stoke Newington Church Street. See our gigs page for details on all our events.
