Wurlitza – A Cottage on Dartmoor
Mar 23, 2018
Wurlitza are a critically acclaimed five piece band from South East Cornwall who add live soundtracks to silent films in a way that is completely unique.
A Cottage on Dartmoor is a thriller of love, jealousy and hairdressing. Made in 1929 by the young Anthony Asquith, this film explores the latest craze to have been hitting the cinemas; the talkies. One of the last silent films to be made, this is early British cinema at its best.

Mar 26, 2018 – Mar 30, 2018
Who are todays days heroes and villains?
What constitutes, creates and contextualises either?
Between 26th - 30th March 2018, 1000 – 1600hrs daily, the public are invited into the River Room of Old Bakery Studios to talk and observe the live streamed collaborative work and conversations between artists and guests.
Visitors are welcome to offer opinion, example and instruction whilst work is happening. Even better if you dress up as your GOWER ha GALOW.

Milk presents... Joan
Mar 29, 2018
A fearless new play about what it means to stand out, stand up and stand alone – this is Joan of Arc. Packed with guts, heart and some well placed 'packaging', JOAN fuses lyrical new writing with quick wit and cabaret prowess. Award winning cabaret artist Lucy Jane Parkinson unravels the intricacies of Joan's defiance, subsequent demise and morphs into the men that put her there. A captivating new solo show about belonging, gender and finding our own identity - with uproarious songs that breathes new life into this centuries-old legend.

Theatre Alibi - The Boy Who Climbed Into The Moon
Apr 1, 2018
Some pretty odd ideas are floating around Paul's street. There's Mabel, whose brother hides under a brown paper bag. And Clarence the poodle who thinks he can fly. But Paul has the oddest idea of all. He thinks that the moon is a big hole in the sky and he's going to climb into it...
