  • Tuesday 17 October, 8pm
  • £5. 1 hour (10 + years)
  • It’s October. The days are getting shorter. The nights are getting longer. It’s that time of year when darkness falls across the land, the midnight hour is close at hand, creatures crawl in search of blood to terrorize your neighbourhood. Or it should be, but with all the drinking and dressing up as slutty cats, who has the time to be scared anymore?
  • Playwright Doug Deans and storyteller Matt Watts are doing something about that. They’ve written a show, just for Attenborough, just for Halloween. There will be a campfire, there will be marshmallows, there will be stories, and maybe, just maybe, there’ll be something else, lurking in the dark...

  • £8 / £4. 1 hour (16 + years)
  • One big project. Two ambitious women. Mothers to several small kids. No bed-time routine. But the show must go on. To work or not to work? That is the question. Our ambition did not disappear when we had kids. They both fight for our attention. Can we soothe our babies and our ambition? Join us in probing 21st Century parenthood.

  • British Wrestling: history and resurgence

  • Sunday 19 November, 6pm
  • FREE. 2 hours
  • (Part of Being Human Festival)
  • In 1988, after its cancellation on ITV, it seemed that British Wrestling had died. Recently, however, there has begun an unlikely resurgence. British Wrestling now leads the world; shows sell out in minutes, local athletes are admired worldwide. This Being Human event charts the fall and rise of British Wrestling through a collection of artistic encounters – a training workshop, a discussion event, and, on Sunday, two wrestling matches, with responses from artists, scholars and fans.
