Singing is a way of releasing an emotion that you sometimes can't portray when you're acting. And music moves your soul, so music is the source of the most intense emotions you can feel. Amanda Seyfried

What's the matter...
Be prepared for a very silly show about a very intelligent subject.
An unexplained cat theft from a physics laboratory leads scientist Smithy on a journey through his own experiment into the subatomic world. The situation becomes charged and it is impossible to stay neutral. Can he find the cat and win over his colleague Sarah in the process? Will the outcome be positive or negative?
Performed by two actors and an overhead projector. Featuring physical comedy, scientific slapstick, and a search for Schrodinger’s cat.
The Last Baguette Theatre Company makes fast-paced, irreverent comedy, and have performed in France, Switzerland and Canada. What’s the Matter? was written by Tiffany Woodsmith (winner of the Sunday Times playwriting award 2004, dramaturg for The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha – The Stage Award winner 2014), directed by Susana Alcantud, devised by the company.

Edd Bateman's West African Love Affair
If this doesn’t get you on your feet, bopping and swaying, after the first four bars, you’re obviously in need of an emergency groove transfusion…
Come and share the love with Edd and his amazing West African band
“Edd Bateman’s in love – and he wants the whole world to know! Summer 2016 sees the launch of Edd Bateman’s West African Love Affair – a band, an album and world tour – and the first mbalax song (“Billahi Walahi”) composed and sung by an Englishman. Scintillating kora and balafon combine with relentless soukous guitar and subtle Senegalese mbalax grooves over a captivating Cameroonian backbeat – and all underpinned by Edd’s pulsating basslines.
