Tim Voilhat

When Tim Voilhat’s grandma passed away, she left a huge mansion for her only grandson. The only problem was that he lived in Australia. Although Tim lived on the other side of the planet he chose to leave his hometown to go to Norway and explore his Norwegian roots. Not long after he arrived in Norway, the pandemic broke out and forced him to stay in the big mansion all alone. Time went by and he began to feel homesick, so he started writing and creating melodies. After a while, he met four Norwegian guys who he wanted to explore his music with. Together they became a group and started writing and producing music together.

After killing it at Malakoff Rockfestival, the band has been receiving attention from not only Norway, but also the UK, the US, Brazil, and Australia. Be sure to check out their instagram, it’s insane and never ending!

Regent Brass

Regent Brass is a 28-piece brass band based in Chalk Farm, North London. Founded in 1985 to cater for young brass players in Brent that had left the youth set-up, the band has since risen to the upper levels of the brass band scene, currently under Musical Director Alan Duguid, and performing regular concerts of innovative, exciting modern brass band repertoire. The organisation also incorporates Regent Community Brass which was formed in 2012 to provide an outlet for local musicians, both young and old, to get involved with playing with a brass band.

Olavskoret, the Choir of the Norwegian Church in London, was established in 2012 to enhance the regular worship at the church. Around 16 regular members meet two or three times a month to rehearse a repertoire of SATB anthems, carols and national songs depending on the season. 

Over the years, the choir has attracted keen amateur, professional and semi-professional singers who are either Norwegian or have a strong interest in Norway. Olavskoret aims to sing for one service a month at the Norwegian Church and has also performed in Westminster Abbey, St Martin-in-the-Fields Church and with Sissel Kyrkjebø for the ‘baptism’ of MS Viking Sea. The choir is delighted, once again, to be invited to sing in Southwark Park for the 17th May celebrations!
