The Moon Under Water

Andrew James Brown: The Moon Under Water

George Orwell liked pubs. Andrew James Brown LOVES pubs. All pubs! Taking Orwell’s 1946 essay ‘The Moon Under Water’ as a starting point, Andrew James Brown looks at the joy of pubs, their essence and their greatness, and, most importantly the people in them. Why not join him on his colourful journey through pubs great and small, from chain pub to gastro, travelling through city gin-palaces and country inns across parquet flooring and sticky carpet alike. This humorous look at pubs and people takes in history, philosophy, musings, poems and tales of booze, horse brasses and Morris dancing, all washed down with a warm lager or two.
Do you like pubs? If so, you'll like this. Hopefully.

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

Down The Pub With Luke Wright

Luke Wright: Down The Pub With Luke Wright

Flamboyant, political and riotously funny, Luke Wright creates inventive poems with loads of heart. Part Essex wide boy, part dandy fop, he writes from the sidelines about small-town tragedies and national farce, then performs his work with snarl and spit. Since 2006 he has written and performed nine spoken word shows and two verse plays, touring them to top literary and arts festivals. Alongside his own shows, Luke is John Cooper-Clark’s regular support act, performing at venues such as The London Palladium and The Palace Theatre in Manchester. He’s won a 4Talent Award, a Stage Award, a Fringe First Award, a Saboteur Award, and a NFBC short film competition at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival.
