January starts with a party this year at The Boo – with two gigs that are sure to get you dancing! Our Waterfoot Wakes’ parade band, Cacophany Arkestra and their ‘The Mad Parade’,promises a colourful family friendly evening. We also welcome rising stars ‘Jeramiah Ferrari’ and their calypso-ska style dance party! Desperate to return to The Boo after the sell-out success of her November gig, we are delighted to welcome back Edwina Hayes to The Boo in June.
CACOPHANY ARKESTRA – THE MAD PARADE
You might have seen them leading our Waterfoot Wakes’ Parade, but Cacophany Arkestra return with a special set which will include their collaboration with broadside balladress Jennifer Reid, created for the Peterloo bicentenary in 2019 and songs from their forthcoming album ‘No Man Is An Island’. Soca beats meet Social History!
For all the family

IN THE BEGINNING – Alex Marlow
Alex has lost his story. And his mind. So he’s going back to find them. Any way he can.
A Rossendale origin story, Alex is digging back to his roots – quite literally – to explore how we can rewrite our futures by reclaiming our pasts.
Told using drag, poetry, theatre, music, and movement, this is a show like no other. An LGBTQ story of reclamation, In The Beginning is about the power of connection and communication, and how we all have the strength to start over.
Running time 60 mins
Please note this is an externally run event – all bookings and inquiries can only be dealt with via the ticket link below, you cannot book over the phone or in person at The Boo Theatre for this performance.
COMMON LORE BY STUTE THEATRE
‘Common Lore’ is an award-winning show developed for young adult audiences aged 14 and over, featuring rap, spoken word, live projections and live electronic music. A modern take on fairy tales from all over the world, this unique and relevant new show sees traditional stories and modern life collide.
Meet Scarlet, as she reinvents the childhood stories told to her by her nan, makes sense of an increasingly challenging world and shapes her future path in her own unique way.
“It’s hard being young round here. Looking for a break, Trying to earn money, Wanting just to take my stake in the place that I live But the old ways just won’t give.”
