Located somewhere between a theatre show and a stadium pop concert, Sam Halmarack & The Miserablites are the bombastic pioneers of interactive stadium pop. Get ready for handclapping anthems and electro music to move and inspire. With songs, stories and a little help from you we will all come together to offer a unique take on what it means to be redeemed by music. A lightning-fast journey from the depths of failure to collective euphoria in the space of just a few songs.

Singing is believing. Join in the feeling.

“Sam Halmarack’s vulnerable little gem of a show drips with courage, comedy and open-handed honesty. A hero in the making”
— Venue Magazine

Sam Halmarack and the Miserablites premiered at Mayfest 2011, following development through Bristol Ferment. It has since begun to tour nationally to considerable acclaim, and we are working with Sam to develop new relationships for presenting this unique & irrepressible piece in both theatre and music contexts.
