What’s on this Week!

This week at the Basement Theatre…

Tuesday 19th June

Sonnet Youth at 8pm | £5

Sonnet Youth is a spoken word house party. A literary rave bringing together poets, authors, rappers, comedians and musicians for a night of no holds barred performances.

Curated and hosted by Kevin P. Gilday and Cat Hepburn, Sonnet Youth is the antidote to the traditional poetry reading – a night were the biggest names in spoken word and literature mingle with the unpredictable.

Scott Gibson: Anywhere but Here at 9pm | £5

Scott was 16 when he set off on a voyage of self-discovery… to Kavos. Where else? Charting the choppy waters of youth in a hysterical hour about hedonistic holidays, this is a story about friendship, pool parties, travel insurance and the Greek third-choice goalie.

Chris Betts: Bewilderbeast at 7.30pm | £8 (£6)

Betts is back, but he’s got a problem. What do you do when you can’t trust the law, the elderly or even yourself? Join him for an hilarious dissemination of human nature, featuring crooked cops and superstitious children.

Award Winning comedian Scott Gibson welcomes you to join him for a Sunday Session, the perfect way to end the week.

Held in the beautiful Basement Theatre on the last Sunday of each month. Gibson introduces a hand pick line up of singers, musicians, poets, storytellers, comics. . . . . . maybe even some magic!! (cool magic of course none of that rabbit in a hat stuff, or balloon animals).
