7.30pm. £3 & a free drink on us.

If the plural of mouse is mice, why is the plural of house not nice, how do you ask for a “Nice biscuit” and do you order a “glahh-ss of wine” or a “glassss of wine”? Or neither?

The latest live art event brought to you by Beg, Borrow, Steal celebrates the spoken word across the length and breadth of England in a melting pot of dialects and diatribes. Artists working with language, lyricism and liveness will talk you under the table, up the wall and all over the shop. Be it colloquialisms, slang, regional accents, proverbs or song, savour the textures of spoken english on St George's Day and listen your way from Carlisle to Cornwall, Shrewsbury to Suffolk and a myriad stops in between. Linguists, locals and live art aficionados are welcome… and so is everyone else.
