EVENT

Renowned stand-up poet and lo-fi theatre-maker Jonny Fluffypunk presents a brand spanking new little show for families, with story, song, poetry, puppetry, and a healthy dose of anarchy.

At the end of a soon-to-be-closed-down pier in a forgotten seaside town, Pierre the pier handyman spends the last weeks as he always does: catching fish for his old bedridden mother and making strange and wonderful things from the rubbish he finds on the beach.

Then who should wash into his life but a homeless mermaid with a spiky attitude and a story to tell! And things aren’t going to be the same again… Can kindness lead to great things? Can a bit less litter make a difference? Can the world’s first human/mermaid rock ‘n’ roll band make big waves?

Age guidance 7+

Tables will be allocated per booking group size (up to 6 people) and socially distanced from other tables.

“Acute social observation, intricate humour, surreal fantasy, sharp irony and wit… and England’s most pretentious moustache”
The Independent on Jonny Fluffypunk

EVENT

Do you want to create a lovely natural Christmas wreath for your home this year?

Come along and enjoy the process of creating a wreath from scratch using vines and foraged local flora, then wiring on the foliage using floristry wire and finishing off the wreath with a luxury bow (optional).  This workshop will be led by Floral Artist, Kim Barnicott (https://www.beestreet.co.uk/)

These wreaths will last well beyond Christmas if kept outdoors.

Kim will supply all material and tools (secateurs and floristry scissors), although people can bring their own if they would rather.

Each workstation will be socially distanced from the next.

Light refreshments will be provided.

Kim set up 'BeeStreet' in 2015 after her decision to go solo after having freelanced for local Kentish florists

and the wonderfully talented Winchester based floral stylist, Catherine Coombes.

Kim's work is inventive and personal, influenced from a background studying textile design and fine art printmaking.
