APPEARING ON Sunday, April 5th, 2015

Open Mic Session with Ringmaster Rusty Mahone [+]

Free Entry


Come all ye, you fools and freaks

And assemble by the fireside

Bring drums and whistles and guitars

Let’s scratch the itch we have inside.

Bring yourselves in strange attire,

Sing together in a heavenly choir.

Let us celebrate and quaff and eat.

We’ve seen off winter and tonight’s our treat.

Here in comes the bearded lady

The dancing bear and old slim shady

Following on the tarot man

and a girl with frogs kept in a can.

Here’s the man with burning balls

And the girls who walk through walls.

Short arsed, giant or just  plain weird

Rules fall down because we’re here .

If you’re boring stay at home

You deserve to die alone

Tonight is all about the spark

That makes us special, leaves our mark

Imperfections praised tonight

Dress up, show off and then unite.

Together we will start the spring.

We will make the rafters ring.

(Old Cheshire poem)

(c) Russell Mabbutt 2015

It’s eggs and chickens and bunnies and fluff and chocolate.

It’s rebirth too and tonight, for one night only our spectacular open mic night is reborn as a celebration of the alternative,  and all things freaky and all things circus.
