Paul Noble

Founder of Spiritland

Paul Noble is the founder and artistic director of Spiritland – a series of London venues devoted to celebrating music of all genres. From an audio shop in Mayfair to a flagship restaurant at Southbank’s Royal Festival Hall, Spiritland has played host to DJs including Jarvis Cocker, artist Jeremy Deller and NTS’s Mafalda. Noble began his career as a BBC sound engineer before launching Monocle’s 24-hour radio station in 2011. Also a music consultant, DJ and crate-digger, Noble co-founded venue-slash-cocktail-bar SUPERMAX in 2018, tucked away underneath Kings Cross eatery Happy Face pizzeria. The perfect combination, some might say.
