Comedy Impro course with The Magic Mad Hat. Taster session Wednesday 24 June. £10.
This is the taster session to introduce you to Improvised comedy – what is a better way to explore fun, joy and laughter, than actually doing it and experiencing it first hand?
We would like to invite you an evening of games, ‘foolishness’, playfulness and being ‘out of your head’. This will be an evening where you can be a child again, while fully embracing and celebrating ‘failure’. Enquiries: Gudrun 07748 389 432 g.c.fritz[@]

Money is as innocent as the gun – a spoken word show

18th July 2015 8pm. Free.
A playful excavation of that filthy, dirty grubby legal tender trap; in story and verse. Encourages the blindingly obvious to have a sense of
incredulity; ruminating while ravaged by our inadequacies to grasp the what, the why and the wherefores of money.

Nominated for best spoken word show – Greater Manchester Fringe Festival (2014)

    I don’t know what I was supposed to say here, and our event is over, so you might as well remove the above line. Thanks.
