gulliverstravels-copySaturday June 11th

Tickets £10 (Concessions £9)

Doors open 7pm – start 7.30pm

Join Lemuel Gulliver on a fantastical and hilarious voyage into the unknown… Meet the tiny people of Lilliput and the giants of Brobdingnag; visit the floating island of Laputa and a country peopled (or horsed?) entirely by talking horses…

dressthepantaloons-copyThe Pantaloons are a young, vibrant theatre company who bring what we consider to be a vital sense of “play” back to classical performance. In our theatre, your imagination is just as important as ours.

The Pantaloons draw from a wide variety of popular theatre traditions, from commedia dell’arte and pantomime to stand-up comedy and silent movies, to bring what we consider to be a vital sense of “play” back to classical performance. We aim to recapture an aspect of Shakespeare’s drama which the modern naturalistic theatre has lost: the riotous energy of the clown. Hamlet tells us that the clowns in Shakespeare’s day spoke “more than is set down for them”, and we have found that tapping into this rich vein of anarchic humour can have a strangely moving and uplifting effect. @ThePantaloons

BREAKING NEWS! Ava Vidal will replace Ria Lina for this weekend’s Rolling in the Aisles 21-MAY 8pm start

Ava VidalThere has been a late change to the opening act for this week’s Rolling in the Aisles comedy club night… Unfortunately Ria Lina cannot now make it but….some exciting news….her replacement is Ava Vidal.

A cool and composed performer Ava has an intriguing past. She was a teenage mum, who for five years earned a living as a prison officer at Pentonville prison before turning to stand-up, a move inspired by watching Chris Rock.

Juggling motherhood with a hectic schedule of club dates and TV appearances, both as a comedian and a commentator Ava has become a regular presence on television since she turned heads as the BBC New Comedy Awards’ only female finalist in the very first year of her career. She has appeared on Mock the Week, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Comedy Central’s The World Stands Up, Edinburgh and Beyond and C4 reality show Kings of Comedy and was the subject of the documentary From the Top, detailing her background and development as a comedian.

Ava Vidal at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival:

Ava Vidal – Mock The Week:

Ava Vidal Dances to ‘Get Happy’:

As a commentator, she has also contributed to The Wright Stuff, Daybreak, ITN News and BBC World Have Your Say. In addition she has written for The Independent and The Guardian, and has used racist abuse directed at her as fuel for her acclaimed solo stand-up show.
