Jan 23 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

I believed that Fukayama line: the end of history. But History didn’t end, did it?
Logan Dankworth, columnist and Twitter warrior, grew up romanticising the political turmoil of the 1980s. Now, as the EU Referendum looms he is determined to be in the fray of the biggest political battle for years. Meanwhile, Logan’s wife Megan wants to leave London to better raise their daughter. As tensions rise at home and across the nation, something is set to be lost forever.
The third of Fringe First and Stage Award Winner Luke Wright’s trilogy of political verse plays looks at trust and privilege in the age of Brexit.
“Luke Wright’s performances rumble with rage, passion and humour. They are also peppered with brilliantly smart observations. You will leave his show brimming with energy, heart pounding and brain whirring.” The Guardian

Join award-winning musical comedy performer Hannah Brackenbury as she presents a joyful and poignant musical tribute to the late, great comedy genius Victoria Wood. Winner of Best Show (Funny Women Awards 2019) and Best of the Festival (Brighton Fringe 2018), this hilarious and uplifting hour-long show celebrates the life and musical work of a much-missed British comedy icon.
 
Featuring a generous helping of classic Victoria Wood songs including ‘Pam’, ‘Bum to the World’, ‘Music & Movement’ and the unforgettable ‘Ballad of Barry & Freda’, deftly interwoven with Brackenbury’s own original songs, witty poems and tender monologues written in memory and celebration of her life-long comedy hero.
 
Hannah Brackenbury is an established cabaret performer based in the seaside city of Brighton & Hove. She was a finalist at the Musical Comedy Awards 2016 and Pride’s Got Talent Cabaret 2018. She is also the musical director with the UK’s longest-running LGBTQ+ impro troupe, The Short & Girlie Show.
 
“This comedian is a class act… if Wood could have chosen someone to celebrate and showcase her work… I’m pretty sure Hannah Brackenbury would have been on her shortlist” – Broadway Baby
 
“At the heart of this show is a deep respect for the late musical entertainment icon… a project born out of love and joy… Victorious moves you to tears and to laughter with a racy suburban rhyme and a tender touch” – Latest Brighton
 
“Hannah not only sings catchy and witty songs of her own, she also give Victoria Wood’s catalogue the performance it deserves” – Richard Vranch, The Comedy Store Players
 
“A talented musician and funny lyricist, Hannah Brackenbury will tickle the funny bone of even the hardest to please” – Zhoosh

The Joneses
Feb 15 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Little Nans 15th June 2019 DOORS 7pm Gig 8pm

The Joneses began life in 2016 with Aidan Sheridan ‘Morrissey’ deciding to form the band because of his life-long love for Smiths music and an uncanny resemblance to Morrissey himself. Aidan met Matthieu in Camden Town, and while none of the two partners had any prior band experience, both shared similar passion to do justice to the band they loved most.

Soon joined by fellow musicians Neil Batey on bass and Steve Nye on drums, the band considerably improved their profile in the last 19 months to play 20 gigs across 13 venues in London, Margate & Birmingham – to rapturous applause & reaction from fellow Smiths fans.

The Joneses 2020

The Joneses have developed a very unique style based on The Smiths live gigs, as opposed to the studio recordings. This introduces a stripped down, dramatic show with nods towards punk and rockabilly genres. This delivers a very lively and engaging show, with performances by Aidan ‘Morrissey’ recreating some of the antics performed by the original front man, which include wearing tattoos, brandishing and throwing flowers, undressing, rolling around the stage (where space permits) and thrashing about in Morrissey’s distinctive style.

 

Simone Hurst – Switch Radio – Mancunian Mondays radio presenter quote:

‘The Joneses tribute to The Smiths has the best Morrissey front man I have seen in The Smiths tribute scene, a must see if you can get to their gigs. They offer something unique in the highly polished Smiths tribute market – a band that connects with the audience.’
