Family Day Programme:
2pm: Tom Thumb presented by Lyngo Theatre
One night tiny Tom overhears Mum and Dad talking - there's nothing left to eat so they are going to leave him and his six brothers in the forest! Outwitting his parents and the ogre Tom shows everybody that even though he is small he is still mighty as he protects his brothers, finds the treasure and makes sure they'll never be hungry again. Performed entirely on and under a kitchen table this classic story is brought to life in a playful and fascinating show full of Lyngo's magic with feathery spinning birds, a flying house and a portable forest. Come and join tiny Tom on his very big adventure!
Presented by Jo Tyabji
Ticket Price: £10 or £7 under 21's
So what do you think of the state of your country today?
Some people say it’s about needing British values. Some people say it’s not about intolerance, it’s about not tolerating intolerance. Some people say they don’t mind change but it’s happening too fast. Some people say we need to decolonise, get back to the true India.
And what do you say?
Know that feeling like you can’t say anything? Like you don’t know what you could say? Like you don’t want anyone to start shouting, or tweeting 25 tweet threads at you?
And what do you feel?
When they tell you you’re not Indian. When they ask you, quietly, politely, still holding your passport, to step to one side. When they tell you you’re not British. When they say you’re a terrorist. When they add your name, without you noticing, to a list.
It’s not right, violence. But then maybe sometimes, just sometimes, you feel like it is.
Motherland – punching fascists in the face through the medium of drag.
Warning: this is a visceral full bodied dragged up queertastic howl of a show, and it makes no apology for it.
