Music, spoken word and fun and games from some fab artistes plus a chance to incinerate some old love letters to old lovers. Lady Layton is a Performance Artist and Singer, combining a love of 50′s Hollywood Glamour, Rock and Roll and Vintage Pin Up Culture with Gospel, Blues, Jazz, Soul and Big Band Music; Les Malhereux are two Manchester-based writers – David Gaffney and Sarah-Clare Conlon – who combine short-short story-telling with original music and visual presentations for your delight and delectation. As always the evening features other stuff, including a bit of a quiz, with a special prize…A MAP OF SHAP!
Lady Layton “Great blues singing, you remind me of earlier singers like Big Mama Thornton from the 1950s and the raunchy Victoria Spivey. Your dynamic attack for this style of blues is rare today.” and…“The peoples performer!”, “A total bobby dazzler!”, “The dogs b******”
“The brilliant Les Malheureux, who mix together flash fiction, music and projections with shit-tons of wit”
