Fri 15th to Sun 17th December - Theatre:
Fran and the Littlest Reindeer
Fran is fed up with Christmas. If no one else cares that nothing is the same this year, then why should she? It’s going to take a lot more than fake snow and fake cheer to get her on board. But when an unexpected new friend arrives outside her window, it is up to Fran to get her cheer back, save the day and give everyone a chance for a happy holiday! For ages 3+.
Fri 15th December - Live Music:
Aniya Savage + Jake Begley
Aniya Savage - Ethereal, haunting vocals paint pictures of Aniya Savage's multi-cultural life. Her songwriting tells stories that are entrenched in vivid emotion, with a voice likened to Joni Mitchell and Aurora.
Jake Begley's music is best described as Art Rock: memorable melodies that are typically found in pop music convey varied and eclectic subject matter, whilst chord progressions range from the four chord pop prototype to downright atonal. Jake Begley's debut album The Dark Hedges is available to stream on Jake Begleys soundcloud and website
Sun 17th December - Live Music: The Blues Jam
Deep rooted blues in the heart of Clapham. The Jam is kicked off by 4 piece band with harmonica great Errol Linton and guitarist Dave Wilson who has been on the scene for years and has worked very successfully in the West End and much more.
Mon 18th to Fri 22nd December - Theatre: The Oppression Olympics
All they want for Christmas is misery! Milo, Hayley and Alex go about their lives thinking they have it tough. Milo’s neighbour has died, Alex is gay and Hayley is raising a child on her own. What's worse is that no one cares. Then in walks Ruth, a woman who unquestionably has it worse, and they realise why no one cares. Unless your burden becomes your identity, you’re no one. The impact Ruth has on their lives is colossal, building inexorably towards a bitter confrontation over whose life is truly the worst.
