Big Banquet: Music Workshops
About Big Banquet: Music Workshops
Get stuck into a music workshop delivered in our state-of-the-art Media Lounge, led by mould-breaking Manchester-based musician Werkha.
Werkha hails from Manchester and has been performing and releasing music for a decade, collaborating and remixing artists such as Quantic, Bryony Jarman-Pinto, Marcos Valles and Andrew Ashong. In 2020, Werkha released ‘The Rigour’ on First Word, and dropped ‘Beat Tapestry’ in late 2021 on a limited cassette. ‘All Werk Is Play’ marks Werkha’s first full-length solo project since his debut album ‘Colours Of A Red Brick Raft’ on Tru Thoughts in 2015, and sees this multi-talented musician produce a delightfully vibrant body of werk.

I’m so excited to mark this remarkable legacy with The Big Banquet and can’t wait to share the beautiful Contact energy with our audiences, artists, visitors, friends and family over one incredible weekend. After a year at the helm of this magnificent organisation, I know one thing for sure: there’s nowhere in the world like Contact” - Keisha Thompson, Contact's AD and CEO
