Gabriel Moreno and the Quivering Poets

Gabriel Moreno's new band will be launching an album and new single at The Kasbar on Saturday 28th October.

Where: 5 Castle Street

How much: £10

LONDON, ENGLAND, 12th October 2017 - Gabriel Moreno and the Quivering Poets announce the follow up to 2017’s critically acclaimed record ‘Love & Decadence’ with a full length album available on iTunes, Amazon, CD from 19th October 2017.

Heavily influenced by poetical lyricism of Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen and Bill Callahan, the band’s Mediterranean rhythms fused with folk arpeggios have provided the basis for their increasing popularity on London’s Alternative Folk scene. Farewell Belief typifies Gabriel’s character-driven storytelling, set against crafted violin motifs and flowing Spanish guitar.

The album will be supported by a launch party at The Old Queen’s Head, Angel, London and tour in with dates throughout September and October in the UK before moving on to dates in Barcelona and Moreno’s home town of Gibraltar.


“On his latest album, Farewell Belief, Gabriel Moreno's gentle,

poetic lyrics are enhanced by the accompanying instruments. The fiddle in particular soars above and around the words superbly. I can hear touches of Leonard Cohen in several of the tracks on the album.” - Jane Clayton, West Norfolk Radio

“Perceptive, passionate, prolific & Poignant. …solid and authentic sound that warms the heart and the soul.” - John Flannery, Art Speak, Soho Radio

They may be made to an individual (including juniors under the age of 16), group, team, club, firm or company for a positive contribution, of any kind, that has enhanced Gibraltar’s heritage, or for exceptional, successful efforts in preserving a part of Gibraltar’s heritage. The object of the awards is to recognise heritage conservation projects and developments and encourage the involvement of the community in achieving high standards of restoration of buildings, structures and monuments in Gibraltar, thus promoting public recognition and awareness of Gibraltar’s heritage and history.

work; Landlords and property owning bodies; Schools and youth groups; organisations and societies; businesses; private individuals.

Stephen Duffy : The Rise and Fall of Napoleon Bonaparte

At the basement of the O’Callaghan Elliot Hotel, Governors Parade.

We gather for registration and welcome drink at 6:30pm and the talk starts at 7:30pm sharp. 


Illustrated with many wonderful works of art, this lecture tells the extraordinary story of the rise of the son of a lawyer in Ajaccio, Corsica, to become Emperor of the French before finally being defeated and sent into exile on the island of Saint Helena in the South Atlantic. It also attempts to explain the nature of his genius as an administrator and a military commander, assessing his achievements and his failures, his strengths and his weaknesses. Among the topics covered will be his marriage to Josephine de Beauharnais, his relationship with the Duke of Wellington, and his place within history. It is in some ways a very human story, but one which focuses on one of the most remarkable men who has ever lived.

At  the basement of the O’Callaghan Elliot Hotel, Governos Parade. 

We gather for registration and welcome drink at 6:30pm and the talk starts at 7:30pm sharp. 

The ‘Mona Lisa’ is both mesmerising and tantalising. So much about it is mysterious, but one thing is clear: in a life studded with unfinished projects, this was one which Leonardo not only completed, but kept with him until his death, because in it he addressed and realised so many of the themes which are at the core of his work. This lecture examines the Mona Lisa itself but also uses it to explore and understand the genius of Leonardo da Vinci.

Lars Tharp (Antiques Road Show presenter): The gate of Heroes: On the China Trail

At the basement of the O’Callaghan Elliot Hotel, Governors Parade. 

We gather for registration and welcome drink at 6:30pm and the talk starts at 7:30pm sharp. 


From the mountains of Jiangxi province in far-off China, down river, over lake and mountain, and finally across oceans, nearly all the Chinese ceramics on display in European museums, stately homes, palaces and personal collections are survivors of an epic journey and of monumental human labour -Luxury created in the labour of millions. Each year in the 1600s and 1700s millions of pieces – services, vases and ornamental wares – were portered over the mountain border into Guangdong province, passing through the aptly-named ‘Gate of Heroes’. Lars will take us on the same journey, the one you may have seen in his 2011 BBC film Treasures of Chinese Porcelain. And knowing the great human labour involved you will never again pass or look at a piece of Chinese porcelain without this journey coming to mind.

Celts, Romans, Christians, Visigoths and Arabs have left their imprint on Iberia.  Most vivid reminders are in their great cities, showing a fusion of culture and architectural styles.  This lecture will reveal the layers that make up this complex building and artistic history, from the earliest settlement to the fall of Granada and the end or Moorish rule in 1492.

Doug Gillen: Hidden Canvasses: Street Art and the City

At the basement of the O’Callaghan Elliot Hotel, Governors Parade. 

We gather for registration and welcome drink at 6:30pm and the talk starts at 7:30pm sharp. 


There’s more to the world of street art than Banksy. Hidden Canvases is a beginner’s guide to the biggest art movement since pop art.  From train writing in New York to interactive technology that brings murals to life, the concept of un-commissioned public art is a very different beast to that which it once was.  Hidden Canvases explores the key stages in street art’s growth examining the different elements and styles that comprise the scene with no rules.  From the international superstars to the local underground heroes you’re guaranteed to leave knowing your Invader from you Aryz and who knows you might even start looking at the world a little differently.

Nicola Moorby: Turner vs Constable: The Great British Paint-Off

At the basement of the O’Callaghan Elliot Hotel, Governos Parade. 

We gather for registration and welcome drink at 6:30pm and the talk starts at 7:30pm sharp. 

 This is the story of the epic rivalry between the two giants of British art, J.M.W. Turner and John Constable. As unlike in background and temperament as their paintings were in style, these two creative geniuses transformed the art of landscape. This lecture sets them head-to-head and examines their differences, their similarities, their battles and their shared triumphs. But who will ultimately be crowned star painter? As well as giving an overview of Turner and Constable, the lecture provides an enjoyable overview of the British art world during the nineteenth century.
