22/06/17 – 25/06/17: A Bright Room Called Day

We’re pleased to be hosting four performances of ‘A Bright Room Called Day’ from international theatre collective Invulnerable Nothings.

Very limited capacity. Tickets available by emailing

More info:


Tony Kushner’s A Bright Room Called Day follows a group of friends gathered in the Berlin apartment of Agnes Eggling as they navigate the Weimar Republic’s dissolution and the Nazi party’s meteoric rise from January 1933-October 1934. The Berlin timescape is periodically interrupted by Zillah, a woman living in Reagan-era New York with a mounting sense of political dread. INVULNERABLE NOTHINGS presents A Bright Room Called Day through special arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd. and The Gersh Agency. This production appears in site specific apartment settings for intimate audiences and features the work of American, British, and German collaborators in a moment when Kushner’s text feels chillingly prescient.


A Bright Room Called Day features the work of Katherine Hipkiss, C.C. Kellogg, Alexander Latham, Daniel Lewis-Jones, Ryan Mellish, Aimee Pollock, Tamara Ritthaler, Derekk Ross, Gates Torrey, and Charlotte Turner, with special thanks to 44AD Gallery, Roger Apfelbaum, Bath Spa Live!, Jaclyn Bethany, and Vintage to Vogue.

28/10/16 – Halloween party with Many Monika

Many Monika – punk drag monster

Hallelugenia – dark soft freakybeats

Midnight Dave – creepy DJ


27/10/16 – A Night With Lou Reed

It’s the anniversary of Lou Reed’s death and we’re having a get together for everyone that loved his music and attitude.

Lou Reed started playing and writing with the band The Velvet Underground who, while reaching only minor success during their career, have influenced a massive current of music since. Being picked up by Andy Warhol was probably to their detriment as well as advantage as they achieved a level of credibility but would also be often considered under the shadow of his wing.

When Lou Reed began his solo career in the early 70s he cemented his own position as the seminal artist we think of him today. It’s this brilliant period of his music that me and Ella would like to focus on, his music and shows during the release of the brilliant Transformer album.
