Putting the Band Back Together

Venue: South Street (Directions)

Thu 2 Feb, 20:00

Door time: 7.30pm

Advisory age: 12+



Across the UK there are thousands of guitars propped up in bedrooms that haven’t been strummed in years. Voices only heard in the shower. Drum kits taking up too much space in garages. Well, it’s time to blow off the dust. We’re putting the band back together!

Part riotous gig, part tender storytelling, Ross Millard (The Futureheads), Maria Crocker  and Alex Elliott reveal the epic emotions within people’s relationships with music.

Every show features a house band of ex-players. Fancy joining? Email band@unfoldingtheatre.co.uk to find out more.
