Coulrophobia by Pickled Image 8.00pm Tickets £12 available here.
Dik and Adam are Clowns! They couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag, let alone a surreal cardboard world. Why are they there and what are they supposed to be doing? They know something sinister is afoot (wearing really big shoes…) and they need to get out before it’s too late. Join them on a ridiculous, anarchic, often hysterical and sometimes terrifying quest for freedom. This piece is sheer genius. 14+

DJ Ed Steelfox will be in the bar with his cocktail of super smooth sounds.
