Presented by Funtime Disco
**WARNING - Zero Educational Content**

Matty never grew up. He never learned to share his toys. He never learned to behave like an adult, but who would want to anyway?!
AGE-LESS is an hour of barely controlled chaos that kids are going to LOVE!
This is a family show, however is not suitable for children under 5 years of age.
"It's like watching a Dr Seuss character come to life" - A mum.

Punch and Judy

PunchandJudy.jpg

Presented by Ken Harper

Punch and Judy is a live puppet comedy for kids of all ages as performed on English beaches and the streets of London - with all the scary bits!
For over two hundred years, Mr Punch has had audiences rolling in the aisles, with sausage-stealing crocodiles and good old-fashioned slapstick.
31 March - 15 April

Apocotypical

Apocotypical.jpg

Presented by Kambara Productions

Humanity is on the verge of extinction. Radiation and disease run rampant. To make matters worse, you can't get a decent coffee anywhere. Yet, through the darkness, there is a beacon of light; a uptopia, lush and green; with fresh water and high speed internet. But, not everyone gets the invite.
This is the story of those rejects.
Not suitable for children.
10 April - 22 April

Karen Sims is Two Champagnes from Happiness

Karen_Sims.jpg

Political correctness has gone mad, the world's going to hell and Karen remains indignant and frustrated throughout. Why can't people just be nice to each other? Not Karen, of course, but other people. Karen debates the foibles of modern society and explores why at any one time she is two champagnes from happiness.
11 April - 22 April

Welcome to Thonnet

Presented by Thonnet Productions

Ray Living is a paedophile who writes teenage fiction. Ray has written a new book, but - surprisingly - he can't get it published, so he's hired a venue and he's going to try to launch it himself.

Close To You

Close_to_You.jpg

Presented by Meg Pee

Join Meg Pee in her journey to discover that you can't change the soundtrack you’re given in life – a life riddled with chops, a clapping father, perpetually vacuuming mother, Kevin Arnold, parachute pants and more chops from Nanna. She wears them well in her amusing, dark, uplifting and bizarre character-based ode to Karen Carpenter. Featuring Dan Violato on drums.
12 April - 21 April

Just Clowning

Presented by International School for Acting and Clowning

To clown, or not to clown? That is the question! Who nose? What do you get when 2 actors from different cities and realities meet in a church hall to train and improvise together for 13 weeks? Mayhem!!.... and an energetic 1 hour show of authentic hilarity.
