Frogstock is a crazy festival that happens in a field in the village of Blo’ Norton each summer. It started with 5 drunk teenager with a tent and a cassette player in a field in Norfolk. It was good fun they told their friends and 10 years later many hundreds of people were coming to the festival which now had 6 stages, parking and log drop toilets. The festival has no budget, friends and neighbour lend equipment and musicians and performers play for free because they love it. As the festival got bigger and more money inevitably got involved we began to wonder why we did it? Did we want to be the next Glastonbury? Not really. Frogstock was a response to the big money festivals where you pay loads of money for tickets and once you can get in you can only buy the promoter’s brand of dirty larger and only listen to the bands that sell loads of records and pull big crowds. We wanted to create our own space where we could put on our own kind of entertainment and drink nice beer. Out in the Norfolk countryside there was nobody about to tell us what we shouldn’t be doing so we made our own rules.

Frog Morris will brings the Frogstock ideology to London for one night in Alma Enterprises on 6th April. He will assemble an evening of musicians and entertainers with a disregard for what music and entertainment is supposed to be. Some moments will be profound, some moments will be funny and some moments will just be rubbish.

The aim of the evening is to establish a new kind of space for performers that doesn’t quite fit into the conventional spaces of art galleries, comedy clubs, music venues or burlesque cabaret yet still have something to offer.
