Elliott Morris Acoustic Night
"Elliott Morris, 25, singer and songwriter from Lincolnshire who played a gig at the café, said that Ziferblat is “a unique space, bursting with character. Just walking in puts a huge grin on my face”." Last Monday we had Elliott and special guests come in to play an acoustic night for us. It was a really intimate little gig, we sat in big comfy arm chairs while we listened to him play by candle light. Following this we're going to have an acoustic night once a month that you're invited to. Check out our events calendar for upcoming dates & details on future performers. You can also see the full article that East London Lines wrote about us, and quoted Elliott in, here.
