Titled ‘House of Common’, this one-day, outdoor event, will feature a lineup specifically curated by the band, culminating with an exclusive headline performance from Madness themselves! ‘House of Common’ will feature a further twenty bands and DJs across two stages and with some outstanding guests yet to be announced you can be sure this day will live long in the memory…
Madness are one of Britain’s best loved pop bands, still holding the record for most weeks spent by a group in the 1980s UK singles charts. The last decade has been their strongest to date with the release of two hugely successful studio albums; ‘The Liberty of Norton Folgate’ and ‘Oui Oui, Si Si, Ja Ja, Da Da’, and over 500,000 album sales in the UK alone. In 2015 Madness presented their biggest UK tour to date with ‘Grandslam’, with 2016 promising more of everything!
The announcement of their new venture ‘House of Common’ is sure to result in an incredible buzz with the thousands of music fans that have been influenced by Madness over the years.
“We are honoured and privileged that London has found us a place where for one day every year we can have our very own festival, we here by name that day House of Common. See you in Clapham Madheads… For the love of the common people.” Madness
The festival is fully accessible to wheelchair users. Please note though that being situated on a green field site it is basically parkland and maneuverability is limited as such. The ground is notoriously hard but, of course, dependent on weather conditions.
Each of the main toilet blocks in the festival includes disabled toilets, as will the disabled person’s viewing platform. There will be a fully equipped medic’s tent located on site throughout the event.
There will be a Main Stage viewing platform solely for use by those with an “Accessible Ticket”. These can be purchased through Ticketmaster and include one carer. On the TM site, choose the day required and click the “Accessible Ticket” button for further information. The ticket purchaser’s name will then be included on a list of permitted persons on the day. The carer will need to pick up his ticket from the site Box Office and the disabled platform access passes.
Access to the platform is on a first come first serve basis and at times will become full particularly during the headliner performance. The access ramp will be in accordance with disability regulations. A wheel chair accessible toilet will be located by the ramp.
Chairs are not provided but customers can bring their own to use.
Customers are advised that laser, strobe and other lighting effects will be in use during some or all performances
