Expect creative fun from one of our oldest surviving alternative comics.

Taking down politicians. Mucking about. New ideas and finding HOPE. This award-winning comedian (is there any other type?) asks how did we get here? What are we going to do about it? Who’s up for a sing song? After lockdowns and isolation this show is about the simple act of being in a room together and toppling international capitalism.

“You’ll leave recommitted to the fight against this appalling authoritarian government, to keep that tradition alive.” Guardian 2021

Please note: the first 80 students will be discounted to £10 at the checkout. They will still appear as £17.50 until the checkout.

ART31

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
