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

Bath Acoustic Club

The Bath Acoustic Club has been running in Bath for 18 years and was founded by Mary English. At the end of 2016 we said a fond farewell to Chico and Hilary and now Jim Sherry takes up the helm. If you are an acoustic musician/singer/songwriter, we'd love to see and hear you. Just turn-up on the night, you don't have to book. It's free to play or watch, so if you enjoy playing and you're acoustic, we'd love you to come-on over. For more information contact Jim Sherry  07711 647508 jim_sherry 2000@yahoo.co.uk

Derek Nash, Sax, with the JazzHouse Trio + DJ Tony Clark

Honestly, we are not trying to raid Jools Holland's Rhythm and Blues Orchestra for guests but he does use the best players around so we should not be surprised to find this dynamic sax player frequently on the same stage as Mr Holland. Hear him as a solo voice, here at the Vaults.
