Cocoon Talent x Acharich present


Creation has been waiting for this moment. Sleeping giants are being awakened & we want you present to bear witness as dreams become reality. Wait, is that another butterfly?

A night packed with expression, food, fun, networking and creativity, complete with a live band & very special guests! We hand-pick some of the finest talent with substance in the country each time, specially for you, and that's not all!

Some of the things shared, you will be the very first on the planet to publicly witness, and some of you will realise you are more blessed than you could ever have imagined. That's all we can give you for now, because the rest, as usual, is a one-time, exclusive surprise for those of you attending. Words cannot define it & walls cannot contain it. A night of refreshing, freedom, insight & empowerment.

Simply put, this is a date with destiny.


Here's some feedback from previous #SurpriseLDN attendees:

"Wasn't sure what to expect but it was so good!" - Hannah

"Thank you so much for inviting me, it was AMAZZZZING!" - Funmi

"It was so well planned, the acts! It was so beautiful, so free & so open, in a place you wouldn't expect. It was a nice chilled vibe, a nice atmosphere & joy was present. It was good to see you in your element, I've never seen that side before. I thought it was amazing, really & truly!" - Elizabeth

"I had a blast & was so elated! It was such a blessing to have been in such a space. Such an awesome night. So different!" - Hellena

"Well done for constructing such a great concept, it was really good. Please do another one! I really enjoyed it." - Jennifer

"I definitely enjoyed the event, and it was a perfect way to end the day. Having a peaceful & electrifing atmosphere with the hard work put in & the performers created a memorable experience. That made it easier to connect with others as the energy was shared and was on the same wavelength. Connected with a lot of cool & interesting people."  - Luke

"I commend you for being able to put this together!"  - David

"It was indeed a pleasure & a big surprise; I was pleasantly surprised to see you had a full performing band & good number of singers, enough to put up a show! Look for a slightly bigger venue & keep it up! You have overcome one of the biggest obstacles on the path to success."  - Augustine

"I can really see what God can do with this. It was a blessing to be there. Go bigger & better!" - Kevin

"It was really good. Do a part two!" - Colina

"The evening was really nice, I like the idea & expressions! I think for next time, find a bigger place so that more people can come around. And start a bit early so that people can get to know each other before the music starts. I'm sure that next time is going to be a big one. Thank you!" - Arion 

"The venue was cool. I loved my table, it was vibes! You did well." - Daré

"You should make food come with the ticket, but it was honestly a great vibe coming with my partner & a great date night for us." - Lis

"The talent you have hidden under your sleeve! It HAS TO come back! God bless you." - Madina

"Great night, good venue and I liked all the performances, they were all quite personal & touching. I can't even think of any improvements as it was such a great night! Keep doing what you're doing." - Kiran

"Great talent and had a lot of fun. Should definitely do it again! It was great and I think more people would love to go." - Soolaya

"Well done. Amazing. Absolutely amazing! Can't wait for the release of that single. I'm so excited for the next event already!" - Abi

"It was inspiring and uplifting, with it being a safe space. And near the end was a good time for people to network to talk about the event and the type of stuff they work on or the industry they work in. Glad I I was invited and made it as the event was a good way to start the year & reconnect!" - LJ 

"I really liked the acoustic feel of the venue. It made it feel like a more intimate performance than a talent show or stand up event, which was nice. I also liked the flow of artist performances." - Beatrice

"Thank you! Definitely do it again." - Priscilla

"I really enjoyed myself. I'm extremely grateful to have been there. So many amazing and talented individuals. It was extremely entertaining and I would love to attend another one for sure. I loved the energy." - Araba
