From Dada to Doo Dah

1.from dada

The Dada art movement, of the early 20th century, was influenced by the French artist, Marcel Duchamp. So too were the iconic comedy group of the 1960s, The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band. With recorded music, silent films and animations we consider the question, “What is art”?

Mad Musicians and Crazy Dancers

2.mad mus

This is a nostalgic look  at some of the musicians and dancers who can only be described as ‘eccentric’. The presentation includes animations and archive film footage as well as some barmy recorded music from the likes of Spike Jones and Sid Millward and his Nitwits. Featuring comedy music and dancing at its  whackiest and with the stories behind the artistes this is an informative as well as a riotous presentation.

A Kick Up The Sixties

3.a kick poster

A whimsical excursion back to the 1960s. It’s a trip down Memory Lane with lots of nostalgia and humour. It evokes fond memories of The Twist, Mods and Rockers, The Beatles, The Profumo Scandal, The Great Train Robbery and loads more. Prepare yourself for a swinging experience.

Following on from the huge popularity of A Kick Up The Sixties, A Swipe At The Seventies takes a playful look at the following decade. The 60s are remembered with huge affection and was a tough decade to follow so how did the 1970s do? Platform shoes and Chelsea boots are not compulsory but may be worn if desired.
