Celebrated actor and impressionist, Colin Elmer, who played Kenneth Williams in the UK tours of Round the Horne and Hancock’s Half Hour, reprises his role in this new production, telling the great man’s story in his own words, using anecdotes, writings and some of the material for which the comedy legend was so well-known.


Kaelin and Cooley

4th May 2022
In collaboration with Minchinhampton Folk Club

BRIGID KAELIN is a singer, storyteller, author, and multi-instrumentalist who has appeared on BBC, NPR and received many “Best Singer-Songwriter” awards in Louisville. With 7 albums/EPs of original music, she’s toured the world with her entertaining, upbeat, and poignant live show. The addition of Steve Cooley lifts her originals, making the show reminiscent of old-time variety hours.

STEVE COOLEY has appeared on the Grand Ole Opry and Hee Haw, has performed for five US Presidents and the Prince of Wales Steve’s work has earned 5 Grammy nominations and plenty of other accolades, but he lives a quiet Kentucky life and would be annoyed to know Brigid is bragging about him here.

The Moscow Drug Club

29th January 2022

MOSCOW DRUG CLUBTRANSCENDENT TROUBADOURS OF GYPSY CABARET & SWING

Moscow Drug Club is a curious musical place where elements of Berlin Cabaret, Hot Club de France, French Musette and Storytelling meet…


Imagine having a few to drink and staggering arm in arm into the darkness of an eastern European cobbled street and stumbling into a bar where Django Reinhardt & Tom Waits are having an after hours jam with the local Tziganes.

Combining their original material with songs by the likes of Jaques Brel, Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen & Eartha Kitt. Moscow Drug Club deliver an intoxicating & intimate musical experience. You are cordially invited to share a wry smile with us as you enter the darkly comic world of Moscow Drug Club….. this way please, and mind the cobbles!

The Canterbury Tales

It’s Rude! It’s Ribald! It’s Ridiculous!

27th November 2021

From the company that brought you ‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘Dracula’ and ‘The Odyssey’ comes a one-man performance of ‘The Canterbury Tales’. Revered as one of the most important works in English literature, ‘The Canterbury Tales’ paints an ironic and critical portrait of English society in the middle-ages.

All of life is here in these few bawdy, funny, serious and sometimes shocking, short stories. Experience a journey down the foul and fetid footpaths of fourteenth-century England, told with the usual irreverence, wit and silliness! Expect archaic naughtiness and nonsense! Possibly tights and a codpiece! Definitely medieval swearing! Let’s party like it’s 1387!
