For almost five years Sharp Teeth Theatre have been bringing together theatre, storytelling, poetry and music to create a night of riotous Sunday fun. This is their ante-penultimate show before they hand over to a new company to run the event.

Over the years they’ve had raps about stolen bikes, poems about cottaging, performances from drag kings, new writing about women who climb the shard, and improvised storytelling about Lance Armstrong getting lost in a bathtub of meat, amongst many other things.

Each night features four acts, one from each genre. Recent nights have included Spindle Ensemble, Malaika Kegode, Ellie Showering, Craft-D, Wilf Merttens, Lucy Harrington, Claire Murphy, Katie Storer, and more – the best of local and not so local talent. And it’s all Pay What You Decide!

Check out line-ups online, and come on down for an evening of joyous art, like a variety show, but better, better, better!

Tom Dewey is a twenty-three year old poet. He has performed to a sold-out Roundhouse, featured on BBC iPlayer and was recently named as one of the most influential people in Bristol under the age of twenty-four by Rife Magazine.

Founded in March 2018, Loupe Theatre was formed by three Drama students at Bath Spa University, all with a passion for making theatre. They seek to devise contemporary work through a close examination of human behaviour.

Their new one woman play ‘The Saviour,’ explores a friendship festered by and deep-rooted with racism. Through the eyes of Ava, the lead character, we learn about her best friend, Safi, and why ignorance is not necessarily bliss.

“I remember looking at myself in the mirror in the coach station toilets, no makeup, little to no sleep and some cheap breakfast thing from Greggs in one hand. And, I really looked at myself. For a while. But nothing happens. I don’t disappear, I don’t wake up a few hours later, when everything’s okay. I feel the weight of every second. What I’m trying to say is, I… I messed up.”

The magic of David Attenborough live on stage! A blue whale swims through the ocean depths. Racer snakes pursue a young iguana across the desert. Watch as two hapless but enthusiastic clowns recreate extraordinary scenes of the natural world – a world teetering on the brink of disaster. Catch this sell-out five-star show for an epic hour of clowning, physical theatre and the largest range of animals you will ever see on stage!

‘Highly nuanced impressions and hilarious exchanges abound… the standing ovation probably says it all’ (
