  1. Dead Funny

    Sun, 02/11/2014

    An (almost) Halloween Night of horror and comedy.

    To tie in with the publication of a new anthology of horror stories by comedians, an evening of stand up, music, readings and maybe the return of some killer crabs.

  2. I died in hell – (They called it Passchendaele)

    Tue, 04/11/2014

    WW1 through Europe’s Literatures.

    We can no longer speak to those who fought in the trenches. But we can speak their language. In German, French, Italian, Dutch, Russian and Turkish with English narration and surtitles, the imaginative response to conflict will be explored in a unique multimedia performance. From the euphoria of 1914 to the disillusionment that soon set in, video art combined with spoken and written word will bring war poetry to life and reveal new European perspectives on WW1. Programme and artistic direction by Flemish-Dutch cultural institution Ons Erfdeel, organised by the Centre for Low Countries Studies at UCL with funding from UCL Grand Challenges and the Representation of the Flemish Government in the UK.

  4. John Shuttleworth in 'A Wee Ken To Remember'

    Mon, 01/12/2014 to Tue, 02/12/2014

    Versatile singer/organist, John Shuttleworth, has a dilemma: he wanted to tell the audience all about his most memorable weekends in his exciting new show - A Weekend to Remember. But next-door neighbour and sole agent, Ken Worthington has thwarted John's plans, by cocking up the artwork of the show's poster. "Weekend" has become "Wee Ken" and there's nothing John can do about it. He is now duty-bound to steer the evening towards a celebration of the diminutive impresario's life in "A WEE KEN to Remember".
