Improv Theatre Night

Every Wednesday 7-9pm

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.

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.

Tickets: £1.00

Start Time: 7 pm

Soul from the Vaults

The St James Wine Vaults proudly presents an evening of Northern Soul.

Northern Soul marked the birth of late-night dance culture in the UK. Many of the songs that eventually became Northern Soul classics were once recorded in the 1960's by African-American artists, but became rejected or unreleased. These tracks were later be rediscovered and revered by white working-class dancers and music fans in the north of England.

Love soul; be part of this..... you won't be disappointed.
