SoapBox promotes and organises live music, poetry and comedy events in a variety of settings, from pubs to arts centres, festivals and street performances. We are particularly focused on promoting original work and having a damn good time whilst doing it.
Live music nights
SoapBox has a great reputation, bundles of experience and an all consuming passion for original live music. We have the largest database of performers in the East and keep a keen eye on the local music scene, so we know how to compliment it. Every event is unique and delivered with genuine passion for live music and high levels of professionalism.
We book extremely talented solo acts, duo's and full bands. Playing anything from rock, pop, folk, indie, blues, to funk and soul music. Please get in touch if you would like more firstname.lastname@example.org

SoapBox has played host to tons of hilarious comedy and poetry nights. We have booked national stars like Kate Tempest from Sound of Rum
and the incredible Scroobius Pip
SoapBox was founded on the principle of many art forms sharing the stage and its at the very core of our ethos to support multiple live art forms.
Please check our upcoming events for details of the next poetry and comedy nights. We are always looking for new performers so please do come along, introduce yourself and take the mic.
This year SoapBox was proud to have worked with the superb community festival Harlequin Fayre
. SoapBox managed the Steward Team and contributed to the programming of the whole event.
SoapBox was also very pleased have worked with Folk East
, an exciting new festival Somerleyton featuring the best folk musicians from across the country.
We would love to hear from other festivals and stages around the UK with regards to similar opportunities. We are keen to collaborate.

We strongly believe in developing and finding new talent so we regularly host open mic nights. We welcome first time performers, keen amateurs and professionals alike. These shows are a great place to have fun, try out new material and meet fellow performers.
Please check our upcoming events for the next open mic night. Sign up on the night or email to reserve. Running order will be drawn on the night only.
