The Ministry Of Biscuits

The Foundry Group: The Ministry Of Biscuits

London, 1948. The Ministry of Biscuits casts its sinister shadow over every tea-time and elevenses in the land. Established to “control biscuits, and to control the idea of biscuits,” it prohibits decadent sweet treats, such as the Gypsy Cream and the Bourbon. But when Cedric Hobson, a junior designer, falls in love and designs a biscuit to “shake confectionery to its very foundations,” his world – and the ministry – are turned upside down. Inspired by 40?s British Light Music, George Orwell’s 1984 and the Ealing Comedies this is a satirical musical fantasy, produced by renowned company the Foundry Group, with a section by international film-maker Ben Rivers, The Ministry of Biscuits promises clever original, hilarious, and infectiously tuneful entertainment for all ages.

John Peel's Shed

John Osborne: John Peel's Shed

In 2002, John Osborne won a competition on John Peel’s Radio 1 show. His prize was a box of records that took eight years to listen to. This is an ode to radio, those records and anyone who’s ever sought solace in the wireless. This show features a selection of records previously owned by the late John Peel. Many are very rare recordings by obscure and now defunct bands, and this is a unique opportunity for any Peel fans. A version of the show was recorded at the BBC Radio Theatre and broadcast on Radio 4, and it was chosen as Pick of the Day in The Radio Times. Age suitability 12+
This performance is part of the Inn Crowd Project

Latchepen Gypsy Jazz

Latchepen: Latchepen Gypsy Jazz

A night of gypsy jazz and swing by four of London’s top young musicians. Between them they have played all over the world, ticking off nearly every major gypsy jazz festival and venue. They have come together to create a set of spellbinding music for your ears.
This will be a charismatic performance that takes the listener on a journey through the world of manouche music and shows its fusion with jazz and swing. Acoustic by nature, but with a projection and a heart beat that can rival any amp or drum, this is jazz on a string, with influences ranging from Romani music to bebop. Formerly performing as the band Daj Dook, they have recently change their name to Latchepen, an exclamation of happiness and contentment in the Romani language.
