Special Guests
 
Fran Isherwood  Performance poet with a comedic bent who takes you on a wry word-playful gallop through the vagaries of life. A seasoned performer having trodden the boards as stand up/ fall down comic,improviser, actor & singer. 

The Yetzer Hara Box  The yetzer hara box roughly translates as 'evil temptation machine', a fitting moniker for this group that deal in the dark side of modern life; blending the honest, observant and at times surreal poems of Antonio Al Faro Sanchez with hypnotic, modal guitar and shrutibox sounds, punctuated with pulsing percussion and embellished with free jazz influenced sax runs.
 
A superb selection of fine wines will be available in our lovely new ArtBar. As always it will be a truly unique celebration of music, performance, and community spirit.
