Sex, Drag and Sausage rolls; BLINK enter into a raw and raucous game of love in their ‘adventurous and radical’ new show GIRL MEETS BOY. Set in a weird and wonderful world of millennial mating and seen through their neurodiverse lense, the group attempt to answer the age-old question is there a happy ever after for everyone?

Following a sellout London premiere, BLINK are excited to tour the production nationally with generous support from Arts Council England and Battersea Arts Centre.

Thank You For Doing Nothing - CANCELLED

£10 / £5 NUS / £5 Disability Living Allowance / £30 Family of Four

Thank You For Doing Nothing is a comedy musical about climate change and the men that profit from it. Created by award-winning Silent Uproar following their critically acclaimed A Super Happy Story (About Feeling Super Sad).

Thank You For Doing Nothing takes us 70 years into the future to show us the world that our grandchildren will inherit from us. Filled with songs, propaganda and the companies* that told us that climate change wasn’t real. Based on leading climate-change research, corporate scandals, and banging 80's dance tunes.

Join Silent Uproar for this satirical, silly and only slightly scary night out about what the future might look like.

*These are the same people and companies that brought you previous hits such as: “cigarettes don’t cause lung cancer”, “don’t worry about the ozone”, and “is asbestos really that bad?”

It's the season of cutting carbs, hitting it hard at the gym, and shaving everything from the chin down. Summer has rocked up and the media has us thinking about how our bodies aren't up to scratch and there are companies ready to capitalise on that. We've been shamed, dehumanised, and humiliated for how we look and we've had enough.

Join The Roaring Girls for a defiantly feel-good show which sticks two fingers up at how the media says you should look. The Roaring Girls are getting Beach Body Ready. Are you?
