UNITED LODGE OF THEOSOPHISTS
*Monthly study group – the third Saturday of the month*
Saturday 17th February, 3.00 p.m.
The programme of monthly face-to-face meetings studies Theosophical teachings and through its insights sheds light on many of the world’s philosophies, religions, and mystical traditions. These original teachings have the breadth and capacity to illustrate that there is an underlying common origin – the Perennial Wisdom – which is the metaphysical trunk from which the world’s subsequent doctrines have branched off.
To receive information about the meetings and the study texts, please sign up here.

RICHARD YOUNGS & DANIEL O’SULLIVAN
Friday 24th February, 8 p.m.
Richard Youngs and Daniel O’Sullivan perform songs from their liminal pop album ‘Twelve of Hearts’. This is the first time they’ve performed together since its release in 2020. Joined by the unlikely appearance of house band No Show.
Born in Cambridge and raised in the Fens, Richard Youngs began making music at the start of the seventies. His early work centred on the family piano. When this was sold in the late seventies, however, the classical guitar and cassette recorder became his instruments of choice, along with anything at hand that made a sound. From then on he has played any number of roles with bands such as Astral Social Club, Concrete Hedge, No Deserts, Jandek and Future Pilot A.K.A. Recent collaborative work with Andrew Paine, Heatsick, Kawabata Makoto and John Clyde-Evans also show him as a highly social musician. His catalogue of releases wanders into all kinds of zones over a vast array of albums on various labels including his No Fans imprint: they include accapella, guitars, pipes or electronics and come out of solitude and in partnership with atmospheres that range from fragmental folk to all-out fuzz.
Daniel O’Sullivan is a composer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer living and working in London and has been contributing a vibrant, chameleonic brew to the music landscape since the late 1990’s. He has achieved international acclaim writing, recording and performing both solo and with a myriad of celebrated groups including Grumbling Fur, Ulver, Sunn O))), Guapo, Miasma & the Carousel of Headless Horses, Laniakea, Miracle, Æthenor and This Is Not This Heat.
DOS collages a wide range of musical disciplines and has collaborated with a number of artists including several live performances and recordings with ‘continuous music’ pioneer Charlemagne Palestine and large scale surround sound/AV installations with Turner prize-nominee Mark Titchner. As well as playing and recording several albums with Norwegian experimental metal group Ulver and occasionally donning the robe with Sunn O))), O’Sullivan has been at the core of the wildly successful reincarnation of This Heat as a live entity.
