Thom’s written a blog below to tell us more about what he does and what the job involves.
Award-winning Atom Promotions deliver high-quality live music concerts & events in our hometown, Worthing and south east UK. With focus on quality, convenience and variety. Worthing has blossomed, finally becoming a place where anyone can go out for an evening to enjoy live music, quality DJs, good food, buzzing bars and so on. We feel we’ve been part of that journey and over the last year we’ve expanded, putting on events further afield.
We’ve brought a wide array of acts to Worthing – The Charlatans, Grandmaster Flash, 10cc, Wolfgang Flür of Kraftwerk, ABC, Adam Buxton, Half Man Half Biscuit. Lloyd Cole, Gretchen Peters and many more – but 2018 saw us extend our reach as far as Kent to the east and Bristol to the west.
The year began, as always, with our Sold Out MotherOfAllParties New Year’s Eve bash, April saw shoegaze noise-pop dons Ride sell out St. Paul’s in 12hrs, and by the summer we’d had been asked to programme Kent’s 15,000 capacity community free festival Create (featuring DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club), as well as promoting Hawkwind at Dreamland in Margate, and events in Bexhill-on-Sea.
With repeat appearances in Worthing by party DJ supremo Norman Jay MBE and New York hip hop-rockers Fun Lovin’ Criminals, as well as appearances by songsmiths Jack Lukeman and James Walsh from Starsailor, things are only growing busier for Worthing-based Atom Promotions. And showing support for our roots, our Endangered Species YouTube channel showcases unsigned talent from the Worthing area.
The core reason we put on events is to unite people; atom is about gathering all kinds of people in one space to share remarkable moments together.
“Worthing – amazing venues with fantastic audiences. Plus, it’s by the sea. Looking forward to the next time we play there!” – Tim Burgess, The Charlatans
