Part of All The Right Notes, a three-week festival exploring what happens when gigs and theatre collide. See two shows in one night for just £16 with our double bill offer – simply add two shows into your basket and we’ll do the rest! Browse the rest of the programme here.

All the Right Notes is a festival celebrating the volume and quality of performance taking place in the margins between live music and theatre. But why is this happening, and why now? What do theatre shows have to gain by becoming more like gigs – and vice versa? What can music and theatre (the artforms; the industries) learn from one another?

Join our panel of practitioners and experts, from both sides of the music/theatre divide, to discuss what’s happening on the front-line of gig-theatre. Panelists include:

Racheal Clerke –  Bristol-based theatre-maker, wannabe satirist and keen punk singer. @rachaelclerke

Andrzej Lukowski – theatre editor at TimeOut, and reviews editor at Drowned in Sound. @MrLukowski

Patrick Eakin Young – artistic director of Erratica and director of New British Music Theatre. @Erratica_UK

Joshua Idehen – a poet and musician.
