The Haunted is a fast-paced performance of two stories from the weird world of Norfolk legends and ghosts. Starting in the 14th Century, real life historical figure Queen Isabella is hounded by the infamous, and possibly not-so-real Black Shuck (a fierce wolf-like creature that roams the East Anglian countryside). We move into the 19th Century to a maverick anthropologist, a mummy’s hand and a spot of revenge. All of this entwined with hilarious, historical facts that show that Norfolk really is the centre of the universe! “Fantastic creepy stories” Audience member 2022 Original script created by writer Stephen Keyworth and directed by Danny O’Hara. This version is a fun, slightly macabre show full of chills and laughs in equal measure produced by Danny O’Hara and Vanessa McAuley. This is a Slow Theatre Company production

Liam Tulley: APPY (Work in Progress)
APPY - is a work-in-progress stand-up comedy show from Liam Tulley about the current digital age where everyone seems to be attractive, happy and popular.

Failure that is created entirely by our own mindset, which leads to an increase in anxiety and depression. With humour and material described as inventive and laden with unexpected twists, Liam breaks the spell of the barrage of expectations that convince us being imperfect amounts to failure. Allowing happiness in times of struggle and moments in life that keep him going in an era of scrolling, swiping, posing and pretending.

Adam has set off for the wilderness, determined to find meaning in solitude, embracing a new life of nothing but moss-covered rocks and the sound of crickets. This is the new show from prolific card-board clown and head of award-winning Weirdos Comedy. Awards which have nothing to do with this show but might make you think ‘he must know what he’s doing’. Nominated for Best Show at LCF 2022 & 2023 [wow] Event of the Year, Chortle Awards – 2018 [a long time ago, but wow] Quotes from some semi-legitimate comedy journalists: "One of the most stupidly brilliant things you'll see this Fringe." - Fest "His audience don't suffer, though they may get dizzy at all the strangeness swirling around their heads." - Steve Bennett, Chortle "Obviously a very dedicated oddball, Adam Larter has created a giddy, bizarre whirlwind of a show" - The List
In this completely improvised comedy show, you will be invited to suggest genres for a "brand new" play to be made up on the spot by the performers. The genres go on a spinning wheel which is then used to determine which one will be performed. You also get to provide suggestions to start the play off with, and throughout the show will be offered opportunities to shape the action as it unfolds, decide whether it goes right or wrong and even choose how it ends! Will the action hero save the day and get the girl of his dreams, or will he fail and doom himself to a life of mockery? Will the charismatic thief successfully steal the diamond in the heist she has been planning for decades, or will it all go hilariously awry? Will the reclusive, eccentric but wealthy landowner finally convince the heir to his estate to marry the girl he has chosen for him, or will he be spurned forever more and resign himself to solitude? The possibilities are literally endless when the audience has the power of choice. “Fearlessly Funny” - Audience Review “I was laughing from start to finish” - Audience Review
John Callaghan’s Cabaret Electro
Thoughtful and strange electronic songs, theatrically presented with John's whimsical energy, ingenious costumes and specially-made videos. "The closest thing to a living cartoon character. Makes music like no-one else in this dimension." - Professor Elemental "Blurring the lines between music and artistic performance, John's use of visuals and costumes [pushes] the set to another level... An incredible performer, and certainly unique." - Paper Champion "Callaghan [inhabits] a strange zone... comfortable in the IDM scene, making melodic electronica, yet almost always vocally-based, with eccentric lyrics and usually silly and brilliant videos. That strange dualism of electronica and songwriting sits alongside this other dualism of the beautiful and moving against the very English sense of the irreverent and ridiculous." - Peter Hollo "Eccentric and artful." - Warp Records "All you could desire from a gig. One of the most inspirational music acts we have ever experienced." ★★★★★ - Todolist "If you want to put your brain in the blender, have a listen - it's a bit like if Aphex Twin wrote British music hall songs... In a good way." - Tomás Ford "Peak Fringe." - Joe Black
