The “As One” festival returns to gay London for Easter 2015 with We Party, Matinee, Papa and more

A little under two years after the “As One In The Park” day long festival at Victoria Park (which did not quite fulfil its original ambitions), Orange Nation’s “As One” returns with a four day festival over the (thankfully early!) Easter Weekend.

Events begin on Thursday 2 April with the return of “We Party” at The Coronet Theatre, Elephant & Castle. This will be the next We Party in London with no events in February and March.

“Sexcircus” returns after its debut in London last May on Good Friday, 3 April at an as yet unspecified venue.

“Matinee” is at Fire on Saturday 4 April.

Eliad Cohen’s “Papa” returns to The Qube (formerly Pacha nightclub) on Easter Sunday, 5 April.

These events are supported by regular Orange Nation weekly fixtures Gravity, A:M, Beyond (at Ministry Of Sound), Later and Orange.

Early bird tickets are on sale now at £60 for access to all the above four events (with concession access to after parties) and £90 for VIP access.

More details on performing DJs and PAs and event themes will be added in due course.
