British Comedy Thriller

The Legend of Barney Thomson (15)

Barney Thomson, awkward, diffident, Glasgow barber, lives a life of desperate mediocrity and his uninteresting life is about to go from 0 to 60 in five seconds, as he enters the grotesque and comically absurd world of the serial killer.

“This deliciously macabre comedy falls into the fine tradition of what might be called net-curtain grotesque. This is pulp with the seeds left in, and you’ll be picking them from between your teeth for weeks.” The Telegraph

Wednesday 24 February, 7.30pm
(15) 94 minutes

'Sweetly Hilarious' 

Hiraeth Theatre Image


Desperate to leave, Bud wrestles with the knowledge that her departure sounds the death knell for the family farm. Leaving five generations of tradition behind her as she sets out alone into the big smoke... With live music and welsh cakes, award-winning Hiraeth explores the decline of Welsh tradition and identity through one woman’s struggle to escape and let go.

Hiraeth is a Welsh word with no direct translation. It’s a mixture of homesickness and an intense form of longing or nostalgia.

Charming Puppetry

The Journey of the Turtle image

The Journey of the Turtle

An imaginative, evolutionary journey of this most fascinating and ancient creature.

In the beginning turtle was shiny and fast, always impatient, always in a hurry, but then one day he had a terrible accident…

A beautiful story about following your dream, told with shadows, table-top puppets and traditional storytelling.
