A new non-alcohol music event for Hatfield university students launches today (Tuesday).

"We’re looking for the next Ed Sheeran or the next Adele to come through the Coffee House Sessions – so watch this space!"

Curated by BBC Radio 1 DJ Huw Stephens, and starting in time for the new academic year at the University of Hertfordshire, Coffee House Sessions is an exciting initiative encouraging students to enjoy new music in a non-alcohol environment.

Coffee House Sessions will see breaking and established UK talent give daytime acoustic performances in university coffee shops around the country – with the tour coming to Hatfield this lunchtime.

Guy Robinson, managing director of Nice Curve, the team behind the new venture, said: “Coffee House Sessions is touring the UK over a 10-day period, with performances at two different campuses a day and we can’t wait to give Hatfield students a new way of enjoying live music.

“We’ll be working closely with University of Hertfordshire student media to bring Coffee House Sessions to the student community, which will be a great way to get local students on board with the initiative.

“Coffee House Sessions is all about enjoying music without alcohol, and with Huw Stephens as our musical advisor, we’ve put together what we believe is a fantastic line-up.

“We’re looking for the next Ed Sheeran or the next Adele to come through the Coffee House Sessions – so watch this space!”

North Wales-based singer-songwriter Al Lewis will be playing The EleHouse, on the College Lane campus next to The Forum Hertfordshire, at 1pm on Tuesday, September 24.

Lucy Mason will appear live at the same venue on October 1.
