Well, it was supposed to draw to its grand conclusion at Colchester Arts Centre on 29 April. A stunning church conversion with hundreds of punters packed in to see us perform in the flesh.

As it happens, it drew to a conclusion on Facebook Live: with me hosting from my one-bed flat in East London, with only a hazy distant memory of what it’s like to attend a live performance in person.

Regardless of how the pandemic stream-rolled our plans, I’m still immensely proud of what we achieved with this series of ‘LIVEwire’ events. It was our most ambitious live project to date and it couldn’t have gone better (apart from… well, you know…)

Last night we celebrated our 5th birthday with a special online gig, featuring all of our acts on the same bill for the first time. We managed to broadcast the Zoom meeting live on Facebook, but unfortunately the YouTube broadcast didn’t work – so apologies if you were left stranded by that!

Anyway, the gig was a huge success, and at the time of typing, the Facebook video has had over 3.6k views. If you missed out and want to watch back, you can now stream the gig in its entirety on Facebook, YouTube (below) and IGTV. I hope you enjoy it, and thanks a mill to everybody that tuned in live.

It’s been a crazy 5 years of Nymphs & Thugs so far, but we’re only just getting started…
