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

Start Time: 7 pm

Tuk Tuk

A trio of creative musicians based in Cardiff, Tuk Tuk are a sax led group that perform tunes of memorable melodic lines and highly percussive group improvisation. With the absence of a chordal instrument they have flourished, creating a strong collective sound, rich in textures and subtle soundscapes.   The writing has an undeniably contemporary feel yet with a firm foot in the past, citing a range of influences, from legends like John Coltrane and Joe Henderson, to modern the greats of Mark Guiliana, Avashai Cohen and Ben Wendel.  Tuk Tuk will take you on an exploration with each passing moment, so sit back and enjoy the ride. Digital EP available at https://joenorthwood.bandcamp.com/album/tuk-tuk
