Snake Oil

Part gig, part festival, part immersive adventure, our award winning ‘Best Covid Safe Live Music Event 2020’ showcases a world of music for you to discover.

One Night Records presents ‘Snake Oil’, your live music ‘cure for the festival withdrawal blues’ (Time Out)

From the neons of Rock ‘n’ Roll, the languid luxury of the jazz club, or the dusty shack where a lone bluesman plays, enjoy themed food and drink all night long.

Immerse yourself in six of the most iconic and vibrant music styles with more than five hours of non-stop live music to explore every night.

Dress up. Cut loose. Come to where the music was born.



Your ticket allows you access to our sprawling London venue for the duration of the evening.

You can choose to start your evening with us at four different times, every night we're open.

Food and drink is themed, plentiful, delicious, and sensibly priced at One Night Records.

With twenty five musicians playing nightly, you'll be able to see over four hours of live music.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is One Night Records?

We present live music in beautifully designed theatrical environments, and invite audiences to experience great music in surroundings to match. We own a sprawling venue in Central London which we launched mid-pandemic.

One Night Records is:
“The Best Thing To Do In London” (Theatre Weekly);
‘A cure for the Festival withdrawal blues’ - Time Out;
“A joyous celebration of Live Music” (The Stage);
an “Undeniable thrill” (Evening Standard) and three times ‘Best thing To Do This Week’;
“Unmissable” (Everything Theatre).

For the sharp eyes out there, yes, we’ve changed the name of the show from Lockdown Town to Snake Oil; but that's not where the changes stop, with the addition of more music, more to explore and a higher capacity.

We are a contactless only venue!

The venue and event were designed in 2020 with the pandemic in mind. We are capable of implementing social distancing, masks, hand sanitiser, timed entries, and reduced capacities. We are operating - aren’t we all - in the hope that by late September these things won’t be necessary, but:
Masks work
Space works
Hygiene works.

You know how to keep safe by now. We know how to keep you safe. We’ll do everything we can, and we hope you will too.

We are taking card payments only and encourage contactless payments when possible.
