Twisted Loaf, comedy duo
Twisted Loaf's comedy is unlike anything you have seen before. Hugely feted at the Edinburgh Fringe, they are surreal, politically incorrect and highly physical on stage. They take a poke at all tiers of our class system with bags full of cheek and irreverence.
"Wonderfully executed and very funny"
Edinburgh Festival Review
Patrick Morris, poetry reading
Once you hear a poem recited by Patrick Morris you will never think of it in the same way again. Director of the Menagerie Theatre, Cambridge, he will read some popular and lesser-known poems from Seamus Heaney to Louis MacNeice – in this unashamed celebration of some the best writing in the English language.
Dr John Elvin, 3-minute science
A scientist at MedImmune, John's research is into viruses and T cell immunology. In just three minutes he makes the sorry subject of influenza, and how the virus work on us, fascinating, as well as advising what to do about it.
Mifune Tsuji trio
Back by popular demand, virtuoso violinist Mifune will play rousing Piazzolla tango plus lyrical Japanese music. Playing with her are ARU Head of Music Paul Jackson on piano, and her son Jin on saxophone.
Monique, jazz singer
If you like late-night, sultry jazz this is the place for you. Monique's full-bodied voice works beautifully with the delicate accompaniment of her partner John on electric guitar.
