Inspired by slapstick legends Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, Cluster Arts on tour from Australia, present the side-splitting tale of two excitable brothers with a very messy bedroom. Having ignored their mum’s instruction to clean their room, the brothers spring into acrobatic action for a last-minute cleaning spree and are definitely, probably, maybe, just about to, almost, at some stage, going to do the chores their mother has asked them to do! With skilled stunts, uproarious gags and very little spoken dialogue, the audience will find themselves on the edge of their seats and giggling until the chores are done.

Quite possibly the only 50-piece Folk Orchestra in the world, The Conservatoire Folk Ensemble’s energetic and powerful live sets are indeed a sight to behold! Featuring an 18-piece horn section, five cellists, seven percussionists and five electric guitarists, plus fiddles, flutes, clarinets, euphonium, and accordions! They also all sing too. Though rooted in traditional folk tunes, the personal influences of each member steers the set, pulling in everything from full-on rock grooves, to funk, jazz, hip-hop and reggae, to sounds from Eastern Europe and Asia. It’s a sound they’ve dubbed ‘Power Folk.’ Formed in 1997 by fiddle player, arranger, producer and tutor Joe Broughton (Urban Folk Quartet/Albion Band/Joss Stone), this is a rare chance to really experience the shape-shifting collective in all their spectacular glory.
“Truly the most joyous noise I have ever heard and re-affirming my faith in the potential of the human race.” – Jon Benns
