The Silly Boys present Two Punks and a Tandem

England. 1985. Jennifer Rush tops the charts and big hair is all the rage. But Britain’s youth are restless. They have no work, no money, no hope. And in the seaside town of Penzance in Cornwall, a group of mates decide to do something about it. When two of them embark on a charity bike ride from John O’Groats to Land’s End, what could possibly go wrong?

A rip-roaring and rollocking romp, brought to life in trademark Silly Boys style… With live music, puppets and a whole heap of silliness! Two Punks And A Tandem is an ode to the power and spirit of community, in increasingly individualistic times.

Silly Boys new production follows on from a hugely successful 51 date national tour and sell out Christmas run of The Elves & The Shoemaker at Colchester Arts Centre 2014.

Supported by Bristol Old Vic Ferment & Arts Council England.

Timandra Harkness presents Brainsex

Men read maps better, but women read emotions — say some brain scientists. Is the secret of human behaviour inside our skulls?

Timandra Harkness is an engaging and energetic performer.Featuring SocRATes and electric shock treatments, Brainsex is a thought provoking mixture of science fun and science fact, designed to appeal to adults but suitable for all ages and backgrounds. You don’t need Science GCSEs to enjoy the irreverent mix of comedy, video, songs, gameshow & live experiments on the audience.

‘Harkness is great at jokes as well as scientific jargon, ….. a spectacularly entertaining exercise for the brain, it’s a winner.’ Bath Comedy Festival
