But I get up again. By “I” I mean “We”, of course, the we being Flitt & Folio and by extension all of the lovely people we regularly greet at Voices events and/or meet as part of our wider wanderings. In our last blog we posted about our friends at PADS (Penshurst Amateur Dramatic Society) and the Unmasked Ball we would be contributing to. Well a week’s a long time in politics and variety entertainment, and that nasty ol’ Boris went and scuppered our plans for this month, but we’re bouncing back in July to prove the old adage that you can’t keep a good time down. The new date for the great unmasking is July 22nd and we would love to see you there, but be warned that tickets are selling like hot cakes so you had best get a wriggle on.
IN OTHER NEWS we also hinted at further outings in July, and we can now happily confirm three events as part of the Tunbridge Wells Fringe Festival. For our Voices regulars the main event will be the Flitt & Folio showcase and open mic at Vittle & Swig on Friday 9th, but we’re also running two workshops, “Bananas & Cream”, for younger poets on the 10th and 11th. Tickets for all are available now so grab ’em while they’re hot.
An evening of original words, music and comedy hosted by the ever-effervescent F&F. There will be an open mic section and the house guitar will be available on request. Other musical options include a PA for backing tracks, and if we can manage to squeeze it in we’ll even hook you up with a keyboard that has been enthusiastically described as ‘playable’.
All this and more* for just a fiver – what more could you want of a Friday night? Those who answered ‘James Blunt and Tom Kerridge’ can take their custom elsewhere. We hope it rains on you…
