>>>>>>> 2014 Celebrating the 25th anniversary year of Blow the Fuse

Tomorrow the World: Six double bills set in two iconic venues of Stoke Newington
Where young meets old, where East meets West.

Can you believe it’s been 25 years since Blow the Fuse began running a regular jazz night in the theatre at the Duke of Welly on the Balls Pond Road!
Since then there’s been The Happening, Emma Peel Fan Club, Electric Landladies, the Kings Head Theatre, Samuel Pepys, the old Vortex, the new Vortex, 11 album releases….
Children have been born and grown up, family members have passed away, many dear friends have gone from this life and still the music plays!

Thank you, thank you for your support over all this time. We know you feel the joy and pleasure we feel from creating our events – and do we have a great season coming up this Spring 2014? Yes we do!

We really couldn’t do it without all of you!
Love Deirdre, Alison and all at Blow the Fuse xx
