The Great Brain Robbery

From its origin as a series of legendary West London takeover parties in Paradise by way of Kensal Green, The Great Brain Robbery‘s immersive style evolved at its residencies at Portobello’s Cobden Club, Mayfair’s Sketch and Camden’s Underworld. The Great Brain Robbery now runs stages at festivals across the UK, which have included Wilderness, Secret Garden Party, Standon Calling, How The Light Gets In, Curious Arts Festival, and London’s Portobello Live and Vaults Festival. Each night takes on a bespoke theme with every aspect of the show specifically tailored to the occasion. Special guests often appear unannounced...
The Great Brain Robbery is the brainchild of our Performance Director, Gus Robertson, who is probably one of the busiest guys in rock’n’roll. Guitarist, impresario, DJ, creative director, curator, promoter - he knows how to make a show go off from every angle. Of note, over the past fifteen years, Gus has toured the world playing lead guitar for a band called Razorlight, run two iconic Victorian London venues – the 20th Century Theatre and Bush Hall, and established a new theatre in a disused bus depot in Notting Hill - The Playground Theatre.
