Five years ago, James’s best friend Tom was diagnosed with heart cancer and given three months to live. His last wish was to be given a full Viking burial. This is the remarkable, hilarious, heart-lifting and outlandish story of how James actually gave his mate the send-off he wanted. Featuring live music, side-splitting anecdotes and even a real Viking helmet, James Rowland’s Team Viking is a comic ode to death and friendship. Age Suitability 14+

Kakatsitsi are a group of traditional drummers, dancers and singers from the Ga tribe of Southern Ghana, with their roots in the fishing community of Jamestown and include some of Ghana’s leading traditional drummers and singers. Their music takes traditional rhythms and chants from their own Ga tradition and those of a variety of other West African cultures, rearranging them in a modern and accessible way. Having toured the UK a previous 13 times, including a recent main stage performance at WOMAD, Kakatsitsi are certainly one of Africa’s leading traditional drumming groups.

The FB Pocket Orchestra takes its listeners back to the hot jazz, blues, ragtime and popular dances of the 1920/30s and earlier. The members originally began playing together simply as an exercise in exploring heritage repertoire - taking on a few informal performances and recording dates as schedules allowed. The FB Pocket Orchestra became an 'official' project in the spring of 2012 and released its first album in October. The aims of the orchestra are to present a contemporary slant on popular acoustic music from the early part of the last century. Suitable for all age groups.
