Stand Up For Burbage! At the Constitutional Club

Stand Up For Burbage! At the Constitutional Club

Date: Fri 05 May, 2017

Time: 20:00

Doors Open 7PM

OOPS! This one SOLD OUT in UNDER A DAY! 

Another regular favourite - and rightly so. Grab these tickets before they all go. Our comedy night this year features:

Anthony King

Anthony KingActing as Master of Ceremonies this time around, and armed with his guitar and acerbic wit, Anthony has form at BCAF, having last graced us with his dry humour and almost (no, wait, exactly) dark psychotic songs, last year.

Anthony has wealth of experience on the national comedy circuit, with over 20 years of gigs in top U.K. clubs, in Theatres, Arts Centres and at Festivals. His unique dead-pan style was honed in the early 90's on London before the circuit expanded to what it is today.

"I had tears down my cheeks for Anthony.... with him there’s the immediate laugh, and then the follow up laughs from others as the jokes sink in. Brilliant"  - Comment from venue staff at Narberth gig

"Great gig in our Village tonight. Thank you - you made me cry with laughter especially your cheeky songs."- Mary Stallard  Llangollen

Anthony will be presiding over the following acts tonight:

Sully O'Sullivan

Over the top humour from down-under, Sully has an astute Kiwi-eye for the quircky Brits. You think we're funny? Wait till you hear what Sully makes of us.

Hannah Silvester

Hannah has been performing on the stand up comedy circuit since 2010. Based in the West Midlands, she is a regular on both the local and national circuits and is regularly appearing for a wide number of clubs, winning awards along the way. 

Her adult set combines frank and honest stand up comedy with a warm delivery and the occasional comedy song thrown into the mix.

Brian Higgins

Brian is one of the most experinced headline acts on the comedy circuit. He moved to London in his teens from a small fishing Village in central Scotland. Armed only with a penknife, catapult and a bag full of tadpoles he set out to make his fortune. Twenty years later he still has the penkinfe. Brian has a real passion for comedy, and it shows in an impeccably delivered cheeky upbeat set, which never fails to deliver the goods.

Topical material alongside well crafted stories of fatherhood, pregnancy and all related subject matters. He has a high turnover of material and that maybe one of the reasons he has been a headline act for the last fourteen years.

Funny boys, Funny girls.  One-liners, dodgey stories, a few songs and a bucket of observational humour to make you want to hoot until stuff comes out of the wrong places.

Go on, come and have a laugh with us. You know you want to.

We acknowledge the generosity of Fairfield Veterinary Centre, who have sponsored this event.

Sorry - This event is now Sold Out.

Acrylic Painting in Miniature with Joanne Stewart

acrylics in miniature2I live to be creative. Form and shape and how colour masses interact - it's all part of what gets me going in a creative pursuit. My style goes from realism to abstraction, but I tend to focus on my mixed media work, which definitely leans to abstraction.

My unique style and risk to experiment has led to my work being exhibited within a London gallery and other exhibitions and events. This in turn has allowed me to work with a number of high profile art and design companies, demonstrating, blogging and providing hints and tips on how to get the best out of their product ranges.

A bit about the workshop:

For BCAF I am introducing you to the world of 'Acrylics in Miniature' - the aim being for you to produce a unique art piece using acrylics and natural materials.  you will develop the skills to paint in miniature a masterpiece on either leaves or ceramic tiles.  All materials are supplied and you will each have a piece to take home at the end.  No experience is necessary, just a bag full of enthusiasm.

See more of my work here https://www.artgallery.co.uk/artist/joanne_stewart 

There are two 90 minute sessions at 1:30 and 3PM, each place priced at £12.00

Crochet for Beginners - Granny Squares with Helen Rollins

CrochetHello, my name is Helen and I run Wool And Crafts. We are a local online craft retailer. I mainly crochet but I also enjoy knitting and cross stitch. Over the years I have made everything from blankets and hats to cardigans and socks.

For my first year at BCAF I am running a workshop for complete beginners or those that have just never been able to master the Granny Square. We are covering the basics from how to start, change colours and weave in ends.  Once you have mastered this humble square the possibilities are endless. 

We are running two 90-minute workshops at £12.50 each, with limited places on each session.

Everyone receives a goodie bag containing all you need for the workshop plus some extra surprises.

 Willow Weaving with Chaz Friend

Willow Weave 2Just outside the Congregational Church, you'll find a marquee tent and Chaz from Wayside Willow. He seeks to bring the ancient craft of Willow weaving to Twenty First Century learners, engaging them with historical skills and techniques, while cultivating  creative thinking and problem solving.

Chaz says: "l believe we are all created to be creative - its a core part of our humanity. Some people never find that place inside them. I know from experience that willow can help free that creative spark  in people who think of themselves as non-artistic."

Today, Chaz will be guiding you to make a garden obelisk. Make your own unique willow garden ornament to suit the plants that you are growing in your garden.  Make your own choice as to height, diameter and weaving style. Suitable for beginners.

More details from Chaz's website here

There are two 90 minute sessions at 1:30PM and 3:00PM (3:00 PM session now sold out) Tickets cost £15.

Refreshments available in the Congregational Church,  throughout the afternoon.
