|Black River Falls
In the 19th century the Wisconsin frontier town of Black River Falls went insane.
Throughout the 70s, Bob’s family took an annual station wagon road trip there, visiting the town’s giant orange cast-iron moose. In the 21st century, Bob’s sister Jenny settled there, married the same Albanian man three times and became a Muslim.
Survival, love, madness and history: true stories told with live original music, songs, documentary film and occasional puppets, and all the drama, surprise & humour of life. And all of it tangentially related to a town in Wisconsin called Black River Falls.
Supported by Arts Council England.
|Ritchie-Parrish-Ritchie - The Un-TANGLED Tour
Tanglefoot's dynamic rhythm and harmony guys are back together again!
They rocked the folk/roots music scene as 3/5ths of popular Canadian band TANGLEFOOT, with their bold vocal harmonies and rampaging onstage energy.
Since Tanglefoot they've branched out...writing, broadcasting, solo performing. Now they've reconnected to play music from both inside and outside their former band identity, delivering memorable songs, stories and laughter. Whether it's an original song, or Steve's recollection of a Robert Plant version of an old Dylan tune, or Rob's incisive musical humour, all the trademark harmony, chemistry, enthusiasm and impact of Tanglefoot is there in a new guise.

|Robin Ince: The Importance of Being Interested
Lakin McCarthy Entertainment Presents
Award winning comedian and science enthusiast Robin Ince follows up his Happiness Through Science show with a look at his favourite scientists – Charles Darwin and Richard Feynman.
Find out why we have eyebrows, why bald dogs have bad teeth, how heavy metal music makes pigs deaf and why spaghetti snaps into four pieces. It is a loving look into the minds of two giants of human imagination who changed our worldview.
He’ll also stop off on the way to look at some of the more bizarre views of early science–is the ostrich really the offspring of the union of a gnat and a giraffe? (No)
A night and an afternoon of spaghetti, barnacles and safe cracking.
Featuring a special Sunday matinee, suitable for students, schoolkids and youngsters of all ages. And their parents. And grandparents. And great-grandparents. And... oh, you get the picture.
