The Front Room Words

February 16 2017

With a need to develop a night time attraction for its food and beverage offer, Aurora Cafe turned to BIG Adventures to supply a solution.  To stand out from a competitive and busy night time economy, we created The Front Room as distinctive events brand to reflect the intimacy and unique character of Aurora Cafe and then programmed and managed a successful spoken word and acoustic music nights, The Front Room-Words and The Front Room-Sounds.  Well known regional and national artists were featured alongside local acts with workshops held in the daytime.

The events lead to a turnaround in the evening trade for Aurora Cafe.

'What a fabulous first night, Great guest performers, open mic’ers, brilliant hosting. High energy, humour and pathos, sparkling talents in Southsea, many I had never heard before. Lovely venue and welcoming staff.' Richard Peirce

'Fantastic eclectic evening of spoken word. What a wonderful team who were incredibly welcoming. 10/10.'  Matt Gibbins, Director of the Songologues.
