London Bulgarian Choir and Harbottle & Jonas at Campfire Club
Filling London’s green spaces with music, unamplified, outdoors, around a fire, Campfire Club is a unique path for discovering music and London’s hidden nature sanctuaries. From May to September, each week takes you on a worldwide musical journey through the city, with a series of carefully curated, unamplified concerts.
Having searched far and wide for those rare outdoor spaces where open campfires are allowed, as well as the perfect balance of nature and seclusion, there are nine carefully mapped sites across the city, covering the four corners, including; Bethnal Green, Bow, Shoreditch, Islington, Kings Cross, Queens Park, Stockwell, Peckham, and Brockley.
Join us for an evening of worldwide roots music from London Bulgarian Choir, and special guests Harbottle & Jonas.

About London Bulgarian Choir
The award-winning London Bulgarian Choir is a vibrant, sociable and open-hearted group of singers embracing all nationalities, ages and abilities. Founded in 2000 this group has become a performing tour de force, winning hearts and minds from the Welsh valleys to Bulgaria’s mountain villages.
From its early days as a handful of singers, the choir has grown into an extended ensemble bringing its repertoire of traditional Bulgarian songs to concert halls, churches, nightclubs, galleries, festivals, embassies, village squares and even a barge on the River Thames. Songs performed are arrangements of traditional and ancient Bulgarian songs. Some tell powerful tales of love and loss, fighting and celebration, while others are inspired by the daily fabric of life. The choir’s spine-tingling performance of the songs transcends language barriers, and often moves audiences to tears.
