BORN LIPPY- THE NIGHT OF ALL THINGS WORDY- 
SPOKEN WORD/HIPHOP/COMEDY
We are having a Xmas party! Cobalt has kindly given us the venue for a Friday night! We promise you that the lineup will be epic as ever - but as its xmas time and we know people want to party - most of the acts will have a musical edge. We will end the night with some DJ's and some dancing. 

Our first headliner:

JESS GREEN

The theatre adaptation of Burning Books was longlisted for the Bread & Roses Theatre Award 2016 and performed to sell-out audiences at Curve Theatre in Leicester.
