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)

  • New Anarchist Research Group – next meeting
    Saturday 27 June, 2015 2.00 pm – 4.30 pm
    Anarchism and Education – the revolutionary ideas and practice of Louise Michel
    Louise Michel is remembered and celebrated for fighting on the barricades of the Paris Commune, her indefatigble anarchism and rabble-rousing speeches. It is almost forgotten that for most of her life she was a teacher. She set up and taught in schools in France before the Commune, in Paris before and during the Commune, in exile in New Caledonia, and lastly in London in the late 1890s.
    In this talk Martyn Everett outlines the history of Louise Michel’s school in London and explores her revolutionary ideas about education and her methods of teaching.
    Our meetings are friendly and informal. They are usually held on the fourth Saturday each month

    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.
