We have a fantastic autumn line up for you all, kicking off with Clapham Oxjam Festival Sat 7th Nov, two bands ‘Emma & The Hot Tubmen’ and ‘Balloon Ascents’ and a Dj set from our new Northern Soul night 'The Shakeup,' 1st Sat of the month.
Our current theatre production of ‘White Feathers’ is running up until Sat 14th Nov. As Europe hurtles towards war, two school friends make choices that will change their lives. To fight or not to fight? Faced with the trenches of Flanders or being ridiculed for being a conscientious objector, which is braver? And what courage does it take from those around them to support the ones they love?
Mon 9th ‘Outsiders’ Do you have, have you ever had, an imaginary friend? Have you ever seen a ghost? Do you yourself sometimes feel that you might as well be a ghost as you feel totally ignored? Is the outsider, totally invisible? Maybe your past hangs around like a ghost. Does the past still belong in the present? Have you ever been stalked, or are you a stalker? Are you the haunted or the haunting? When someone is invisible who should be visible or someone invisible becomes visible, what are the repercussions. Come see Third Person create a play discovering these problems and maybe some answers.

Theatre production of SYD begins Sun 15th Nov. Syd is a surly comedian and gender illusionist. He appears suddenly when a handheld lamp clicks on in a dark theatre.
