The Bard of Bath

The Bard of Bath is the city's representative poet, singer or storyteller. The role continues the Iron-Age Celtic tradition where DRUIDS were the law-makers, judges and ceremonial leaders, OVATES were mediums, healers and prophets and BARDS were poets, musicians and history-keepers. All of them held high status and a place in mystical/religous circles.  Who will be the BARD OF BATH 2016?

Start Time: 7 pm

With roots running from Ireland to Wales to Cornwall, James Gavin (guitar and fiddle), Dominic Henderson (uilleann pipes and whistles) and Tommie Black-Roff(accordion), the players thrive on close interplay and pushing the possibilities of acoustic music.

3rd October

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
