    Shoe Kangaroo and the Big Bad Boot

    SATURDAY 14 MAY 2.30PM

    Inspired by Spike Milligan and old shoes

    A fantastical tale of the secret life of shoes – what do they get up to when you are not there?

    Magical transformations and beautifully crafted shoe puppets combine in this bizarre, funny, poetic and imaginative show from Garlic Theatre.

    Performances

    JOGLARESA: NUNS & ROSES

    WEDNESDAY 11 MAY 7.30PM

    Thoroughly enjoyable minstrelsy from the Middle Ages to the 17th century with voices, medieval fidel, harp, bagpipes, and percussion. Joglaresa perform dance tunes, lullabies and ballads, songs of nuns, songs of roses, songs of villains, songs of heroes.

  • Albert Einstein

    ALBERT EINSTEIN: RELATIVITIVELY SPEAKING

    SATURDAY 7 MAY 7PM

    is a frantically fast-paced, wonderfully warm-hearted celebration of the ideas, ideals and idiosyncrasies of the man whose theories sparked a revolution in modern science. It is vital viewing for anyone who wants to understand the modern world – as well as utterly unmissable for anyone with a sense of humour and spirit of adventure.
