Regather Comedy Club is back!
By now Brexit will will have happened, the globe will be tilted off its axis and we will be in the midst of a premature and eternal summer that will be burn our flesh from our bones. What better excuse to come to the welcome shelter of your local comedy club.
This month we will be joined by JESSICA FOSTEKEW!
Comedian, co-host of the Guilty Feminist podcast and creator of the chart topping The Hoovering Podcast. As heard as host of BBC Radio 4's The Comedy Club, Jessica Fostekew is also a writer for Cats Does Countdown and Mock The Week. Also she's great and that's my own personal recommendation as opposed to bits and pieces of information I've swiped from elsewhere.

It’s always a pleasure to welcome back the one and only Diane Cluck. The Virginia-based singer-songwriter of intuitive folk music has been influential in the development of the Anti-folk scene and has collaborated with Jeffrey Lewis and CocoRosie. Her performances here over the years have always been very special and we're looking forward to hosting her. Get in there quick as it will be a busy one! “Diane Cluck is a virtuosic talent with an emotionality that feels at once ancient and alien. Her mastery of her voice as an ecstatic instrument is so compelling.” – Anohni (of Antony & The Johnsons) (£12)Tickets & More Info »
Everyone's favourite, and possibly the only, radical leftist live comedy show returns to The Festival Of Debate for a third year.
Join Sean Morley and Jack Evans as they brave the classic comedy subject matter of late capitalism, the reemergence of fascism and the inexorable descent into barbarism.

Their plan was surprisingly simple, their journey anything but. Don Starkell and his two sons, Dana and Jeff, would paddle and portage south to the Mississippi River system along the Gulf of Mexico and on to the head of the Amazon. Battling a barrage of internal and external conflicts, their epic canoe trip threatens to take them beyond their physical and psychological limits. Don and Dana Starkell face unimaginable challenges from both the natural world and the human world. While they anticipate their biggest challenge to be from nature, it is their unwitting entrance onto the battlefields of social and political strife that threatens their lives. In short, being in the wrong place at the wrong time sees them attacked by pirates, arrested for being spies, shot at and mock-executed. No less intriguing is the evolving relationship between father and son who for 2 years spend 24 hours together within the confines of a canoe, a situation that comes to blows of its own as father and son jockey for dominance. With determination, grit and sometimes sheer madness Dana and Don Starkell survive their paddle to the Amazon and enter The Guinness Book of World Records for the longest trip ever made by canoe.

'Motion’ is a new collaborative album from established sound artists, Toby Marks (Banco de Gaia) and Andrew Heath. Four immersive soundscapes were created and compiled featuring field recordings from recent trips to the North, South, East and West of Britain. Each trip took as it’s theme a particular form of transport which, in addition to other environmental sounds from those areas, were processed and transformed, blending piano, guitars and electronics to produce a deeply meditative, endlessly unfolding collection. Sometimes evoking images of machinery, sometimes of nature, the pieces flow and twist, at all times maintaining a humanity and sense of personal experience at their core.Tickets & More Info »
