HENNING WEHN : WESTPHALIA IS NOT AN OPTION

HENNING WEHN : WESTPHALIA IS NOT AN OPTION

Fri 20 Oct | Doors 7.30pm | £18

Join German Comedy Ambassador Henning Wehn for an evening of Teutonic jolliness at its best. After his last show tackled those well-known staples of light entertainment that are the British obsession with home ownership and the self-serving nature of most fundraising efforts, this time Henning’s having an unbiased look at immigration. He also wonders, if, generally speaking, people are competent. Luckily in his case this doesn’t matter as either he’s funny or he lives up to a national stereotype. It’s a win-win situation. Come along. Or else.

“Very entertaining and very accessible” The Scotsman

“Forget about the Euro, Henning hits the Mark” Nottingham Post

“His accent is not so much German as indescribable” Daily Mail

MONSIEUR DOUMANI @ THE HOTHOUSE

Fri 5 Jun | 8pm
Tickets: £10/£7 conc

Part of the Songlines encounters Festival 2015.
Songlines Encounters Festival is part co-curated by Songlines Magazine and Ikon Arts Management. 

Monsieur Doumani, nominated for 'Best Newcomer' in Songlines Music Awards 2014, was formed in 2011 in Nicosia by Antonis Antoniou (tzouras), Angelos Ionas (guitar) and Demetris Yiasemides (wind instruments).

Although each member of Monsieur Doumani comes from a different musical background all three are influenced by Cypriot folklore on various levels.

They focus on rearranging Cypriot traditional songs adding their own particular color to the sound and feeling of the songs. They also compose their own songs in the Cypriot dialect, which are inspired by contemporary Cypriot society, as for example the recent financial crisis that hit the island and the corrupted political system.
