Waller

A celebration of Thomas ‘Fats’ Waller, one of the great jazz innovators, composer of standards including Ain't Misbehavin and Honeysuckle Rose.

Rising star bassist, Mark Lewandowski brings together two of the most highly respected musicians on the UK jazz scene - Liam Noble (piano, fender rhodes) and Paul Clarvis (drums) to explore the catalogue of this iconic composer/musician.

WHY? Mixing the traditional with the modern, this trio brings a little of 1930s Harlem into the 21st century

Octopus

Three women have been called in for assessment. Sara looks sort of Asian. Scheherazade sort of Middle Eastern. And Sarah is sort of white. But how British are they?

A post-Brexit satire that explores what it’s like to be treated as a foreigner in your own land… and the power of punk. Fresh from a critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe and a sell-out transfer to London’s Theatre503.

WHY? ‘Raises the hairs on the back of your neck … laugh-out-loud funny’ The Times

The show will be followed by a panel discussion around the question 'How should we define Britishness in 2017?'

Joining us on the panel are Zia Mahiudin, Trustee of Maidenhead Mosque; Conservative Councillor Hashim Bhatti; and the plays writer Afsaneh Gray. Author William Kherbek will be chairing the discussion.
