Improv Theatre Night

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

Ravetank + Television Villian + Crywank + Kim Leslie

Crywank: Crywank are a Manchester based anti-folk band. They mostly write sad songs and have been told they are the worst named band in the country. Television Villain: The post-punk revival is evident in the hearts of these four like minded individuals, who combine fiery riffs with explosive drumming and energetic vocals, amounting to an exhilarating live performance. Ravetank: Nathan Howard decided to go against the convention of making polished, pristine music that is common amongst his peers. Kim Leslie: Kim Leslie is an Indie wannabe, blue haired girl with an electric guitar! 

Tickets: £5 OTD

Start Time: 7 pm
