We’re delighted that the Dutch Uncles are coming to the Trades for the first time for this special Arts Festival show. The band have gained some of the best reviews in their career for their latest album Big Balloon and are playing sold out shows across the UK and we expect this show to follow suite – so book early!
We’re very pleased to have tempted Sara Pascoe to town with her show Sara Pascoe is an Animal. As always Sara is honest and unflinching as she expounds on sexuality, empathy, art, God and pubic hair. If that sounds a bit weighty, there will also be stuff about selfies, glow worms and RuPaul’s Drag Race. Also, and this should be obvious, Slytherins are absolutely unwelcome.
