The Origin of Species, from Tangram Theatre Company

Saturday 6 February 2016 at 7:30 pm

Tangram’s last show Albert Einstein: Relativitively Speaking, was a funny and hugely enjoyable Edinburgh Fringe Festival sell-out and international smash hit.

The Origin of Species is a similarly uproarious show (with some interesting scientific facts too!) for young and old alike. It tells the incredible story of how Charles Darwin came to discover the secrets of evolution and why it took him over twenty years before he plucked up the courage to publish his remarkable idea.

It’s a show packed with big theories, terrible puns, brilliant physical comedy and six cracking original songs about everything from blasted boring barnacles to the perils of marrying your cousin.

Friday 23 and Saturday 24 October 2015

The annual event! The 2015 Queniborough Beer Festival had 17 real ales on offer, all in great condition and sourced from local breweries, the featured County of Yorkshire and others on a Rugby World Cup theme. By popular vote of the festival goers, Queniborough’s own (very micro) Q Brewery took the Gold Award again, this time for their Rucking Flanker, the Silver Award for their 4Q and the Bronze Award for their QIPA! The Saturday evening performers were Andy Robins, Ben Jammin and Chris Quinn.

The Creole Brothers

Saturday 29 November 2014 at 7:00 pm

“A spiced up creole stew of the best folk/roots melodeon led music from the seas and woodlands of the British Isles, flavoured with the fiddle and guitar driven melodies of the rivers and mountains of Appalachia all the way down to the accordion pumping rhythms of the hot and steamy swamps and bayous of Cajun and Creole Louisiana. Plus some of our original delightful compositions to add pepper to the gumbo. All delivered with our own wry humorous take on life, love and music.”
