DUE TO UNFORSEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, 'THE SWIMMER' AND 'KINKENS' HAS BEEN CANCELLED. WE APOLOGISE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED.

The Swimmer, 7pm
Presented by Sarah Corbett

Set against the backdrop of a golden age of swimming, The Swimmer is a comic, one-woman physical theatre show about swimming to France.

Our athlete of the imagination meets the swimming suffragettes who pioneered a popular pursuit. She celebrates a golden age of swimming and the spirit of the Lido, which championed collective wellbeing with its forward thinking and ambitious concept: rejuvenating air, sun and water. Our storyteller emerges from her modesty hut at a poolside of nostalgic optimism

With dollops of goose fat and a glint of foolhardy eccentricity (that characterises this gusty little nation) she sets out alone on an epic adventure. Charting the Great Swim she struggles to stay on course and a frank and funny personal tale emerges.

Music by Matt Huxley
Dramaturgy by Paul Dodgson

Kinkens, 8.30pm
Presented by Pip Hambly

Jack fell down. Broke his crown. And Jill went tumbling after. Meanwhile, Kinkens, our host, ponders the meaning of life, deep in the radio station of Jill's mind. Wherein a story of unanswerable questions and a dance with depression unfolds. Worth to note....

[kinkens: Old Scots for evasive answers to questions of overly curious children].

Written and performed by Pip Hambly, fresh off a UK and International tour of 1927 Productions Golem. Featuring an original soundtrack by Kid Carpet

Age guidance: 12+
