The Vinyl Frontier - Secret Vinyl Singalong

Hosted by Jeff Lloyd.

What is the best song to sing along to (even if you don't really want to)?

Ten people will nominate (secretly) a song that they think will encourage the lustiest of singalongs. A decibel meter, hidden in the auditorium will be the judge!

Helios

Presented by Wright & Grainger.

‘Very cleverly involves the audience in an hour in which past and present, the ancient and the contemporary, lightness and darkness mingle’ Lyn Gardner

A lad lives half way up a historic hill. A teenager is on a road trip to the city in a stolen car. A boy is driving a chariot, pulling the sun across the sky.

This is a story about the son of the god of the sun.

Helios transplants the Ancient Greek tale into a modern-day myth wound round the winding roads of rural England and into the everyday living of a towering city. It’s a story about life, the invisible monuments we build to it and the little things that leave big marks.

From ‘Masters of Storytelling’ (Fourthwall) Wright & Grainger, Helios is the award-winning follow up to the internationally-acclaimed Orpheus, Eurydice, and The Gods The Gods The Gods.

Join them in our intimate Studio setting with a tape player - and delicate tale to tell.

The Vinyl Frontier - Battle of the Bedroom

Hosted by Jeff Lloyd.

Battle of the Bedroom: don't get too excited! This is the Vinyl Frontier version of the marital gameshow where couples (in our version you don't have to be married!) play a record they love that that they know their partner hates.

The audience decides which is better. We start, and hope to finish, with six couples!
