Welcome to the world of UK acoustic guitar phenomenon Clive Carroll… In the last decade Clive has emerged as one of acoustic music’s leading lights. After being “discovered” by John Renbourn, he’s gone on to complete many world tours with his musical partner Tommy Emannuel and is in constant demand for solos shows at festivals and concerts across the globe. This is set to be a phenomenal night of music. Guitar virtuoso Chris Quinn is set to make a special guest appearance performing his own solo set before joining Clive for a duelling  guitar extravaganza!! Do not miss this one!

The Fight Game by Owen Lewis

Andrew Collins is a well-regarded boxer at the top of his game.  He has spent many years never losing and never disappointing his aficionados.  What will happen if he does eventually lose a fight, will his world come crashing down around him?  How does such an esteemed champion claw his way back from defeat; and what impact will this have on his life?  Everything changes for him as he is brought to the brink of madness in this beguiling one act play.

The Human Rocket by Owen Lewis

Day by day anonymous people rub shoulders with each other.  In shops, clubs and bars each one with their own story to tell. The Human Rocket is the second part of The Human Trilogy.  Examining a cross section of humanity’s comings and goings through touching monologues and entertaining awkward encounters, this black comedy shows the sort of poignant moments which are often overlooked in life.  A thief, a jilted lover, a single mother, a failing actor and a lonely old man share their foibles in this intimate and touching performance.
