Hoxton Sanctuary Gig Night happens once a month. On July 8th, Sanctuary and Go out of Tune return to bring you two more incredibly talented artists in one of London's hidden gems. Sanctuary Gig Nights are an event like no other: Two 20-minute sets from each artist; a wonderful community vibe and plenty of time to chat with friends between sets in our stunning 1820's venue; with fairly lights galore and a painted ceiling to rival the Sistine Chapel. Well, almost. Come and see for yourself.

Her debut EP 'Into the Pull' has garnered over 3 million plays on Spotify, charted at #6 on Billboard's 'Next Big Sound' and has been praised by the likes of Alicia Cars. Victoria has now moved to London to begin working on her Debut Album. Fired by her pensive lyrics and stunning vocals, 2017 is set to be a standout year for this exciting young artist.
