Drums, poetry and trance from Haiti’s vodou heartlands.

Their music rises in waves of percussion, vocals and dance, authentically inspired in the moment and communicating nothing but the unique joy of this shared spontaneity. With deep roots in the religious rites of West African Vodún, their repertoire blends traditional songs with compositions by lead vocalist and poet Jean-Claude ‘Sambaton’ Dorvil. The celebratory power of their sound has already ignited audiences at major festivals around the world, including Roskilde, WOMAD and Amsterdam Roots. Tickets are £11 each. Under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.

by Pickled Image
Imagine being far, far from home and all alone, arriving in a remote snow-bound village surrounded by dense forest and strange noises. This is how Yana’s story begins. She can’t understand a word anyone says and the other children tease her with tales of mythical mountain monsters. Then things start to get really hairy…
Featuring exquisite music, arctic landscapes and a cast of extraordinary puppets, Yana and the Yeti is aimed at family audiences (5+). This is a dark, funny and poignant tale of a small child’s determination to be understood and her discovery that friends can come in the most unexpected shapes and sizes. Tickets are £10 (adult), £6 (child) and 15% off group of 4 (max. 2 adults). Suitable for audience age 5 years +. Show lasts for 1 hour (no interval). Hands on Happenings craft sessions available from an hour before the show i.e. 10.30 for 11.30 show. The sessions do get very busy so early arrival is advised. If you do miss out before the show, Sophie will still there when the show finishes for a short time. Please note that Sophie will not be around after the final show of the day.
