David Riley – PROSE
David will be reading some published poems along with a mix of other work he’s written.
A short play of his will be broadcast by Tin Can productions in the first part of this year.

Steven Price – COMEDY
Despite showing a flair for acting daft at an early age it wasn’t until 2011
that he decided to perform in any sort of official capacity.
Since then has tried his hand (and the rest of his body) at stand up, character comedy, improv, poetry, short plays and erotic fiction.

Plus Music:

2 Baa Chords
2 Baa Chords are a Kendal based acoustic duo with a harmonium.
They are singer-songwriters ‘Magic’ Keith Redfern and Ann ‘the poet’ Wilson.

Chas Ambler & Ben Gladwin
Chas Ambler has had a long career in music and has just released a CD, Borders of Love.
In his short career, Ben Gladwin has played keyboard and drums with his own band, New Potato Scene, deputised with Guns of Navarone
on keys, played guitar with Rachael and the red Socks and recently stepped in at short notice as MD for a production of
Pinochio in Halifax. Ben & Chas present a programme of original material – thoughtful and melodic music.

Compere: Simon Baker
