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

Matt Woosey’s time is now. His eighth studio album, Desiderata, captures the most daring and progressive music of his career. His acclaimed solo shows dart between folk, roots, ambient and electronica. He’s an artist who slips the creative straightjacket of the modern industry, a trailblazer with no reverse gear, a performer who drags the acoustic guitar kicking and screaming into fresh relevance. “You’ve got to keep progressing,” says the Malvern-based singer-songwriter. “Like John Martyn. Like Robert Plant. Like Radiohead…”  http://www.mattwoosey.co.uk

Tickets: £7.25 via Bristol Ticket Shop
