Improv Theatre Workshop

A class for all levels (most of us are beginners at the moment) consists of games and scenes all improvised by the people that come along. Sometimes it ends up a bit mad but sometimes you can be surprised by the theatre that comes out of nowhere. We start off every class with warm ups and progress depending upon how we all feel and mostly just have a laugh with a few drinks.  Plus it is a good way of meeting new people. It is completely FREE but everyone pays £1 for the use of the room.  No pressure to perform first time, you can just see what we are about and how the classes run.  If you would like more information, contact Monty on 07865 424682

 

Tickets: £1.00

Folk Tale Photography Exhibition by Stephen F Evans

Over the last few years Bath Folk Festival’s Director of Photography, Stephen F Evans, has captured lots of fantastic moments, including rare and unique performances and events that will probably never be repeated. He will be presenting these in his first solo exhibition ‘Folk Tale’ at the St James Gallery in Bath as part of the Bath Folk Festival 2017. Special prints will also be available for sale as a souvenir.  Stephen is a visual artist and a practicing commercial photographer. He uses documentary photography practice, inspired by his studies in phenomenology, to produce socially driven bodies of work alongside his continuing commercial endeavours. ​His recent visual enquiries have led to his imagery being presented at exhibitions in Swansea and at the Copeland Gallery in London. This has also led to the production of his self published books ‘Operational Realism’ and ‘Article 50.’
