Juliet Turner with support from Stephen McCartney [+]

Tickets £12.00

http://www.noisetrade.com/julietturner

A compelling performer. Underestimate her at your cost.
Irish Times

Lauded from everyone from Terry Wogan to Niall Stokes.
Hotpress Magazine

Turner is – always has been, in this writers opinion –
one of the most intriguing of Irish female song writers
Tony Clayton-Lea – Irish Times

There’s a pleasing asperity and knowing toughness underpinning the stylistic and
expressive variety of Turner’s singing….confidently cosmopolitan.
Susan Wilson – Scottish Sunday Herald

Her stage presence is the type that smoulders, drawing you in and making you
sit forward in your seat rather than dazzling and knocking you back on your heels…
…it’s impossible not to have been thoroughly charmed.
Maurice O’Brien – Hotpress Magazine

Juliet Turners’ music is vibrant, personal and deeply moving…a wonderful thrilling ride of innocent pleasure and carnal delight….frankly gorgeous.
Smyth Harper – BBC Manchester website

Turner is a self-conscious artist of broad vision, whose vocal style is beguiling, then winning….. so obviously you are going to listen, as tonight’s capacity audience did.
Stuart Ferguson – Celtic Connections

That moment is now!

Guided by the voice of God (Lee Majors), they have made it their sacred quest to reintroduce the world to their forgotten childhood, by assaulting them with powerful, mesmerising, dirty and sexual versions of Jamie and the Magic Torch, The Littlest Hobo, Thundercats and many other classic themes from 1980s television. This is their fight, their calling, their honour.

The Unicorn Club [+]

Tuesday 24th November

We’ve allowed ourselves to be convinced / coerced into hosting this crazily, amazing sounding event, could be just the ticket to beat those pre-Christmas blues!

THE BIGGEST BIG KID PARTY INVITATION YOU’LL EVER RECEIVE!

Unicorn
Oh yes, I’ve been scheming and the lovely people at Telfords have agreed to my crazy idea too!

You’re invited to leave your problems at the door and have some grown-up play time with the Happiness Ninja! Pop on a uni-horn, play a game, do some colouring in, raid the fancy dress box – it’s your time to indulge your inner child and have an excuse to act like a knob for a couple of hours!

You see play brings joy – it’s vital for problem solving, creativity and relationships. Some activities put your brain into alpha state (aka fun party mode) which helps with stress, anxiety and depression too! It’s been proven by brainy scientists too!

Go grab a ticket – places are limited so ‘do an organised’ and get booked on (it’ll help me work out how many party bags to make up too) and the suggested contribution for our play date is £15 to cover materials and stuff xxx
?
p.s. boozy drinks and scoff will be available to purchase from our lovely hosts too, yay!
