Arts #ProgrammerPicks: Ed.2

With our physical doors shut at Ashcroft Arts Centre, Forest Arts Centre and West End Centre, the Arts Centre Live Programming Team are tirelessly searching for an eclectic and exciting variety of alternative arts experiences - check out our comedy, music and theatre #ProgrammerPicks for the second week...

Enjoy and let us know what you think using the #ProgrammerPicks hashtag!


Back in February Britain's Funny Woman award winner, Jayde Adams, took to the West End Centre stage in The Ballad of Kylie Jenner’s Old Face (renamed and available to watch on Amazon Prime ). Now in quarantine, she’s delivering the lockdown goods for free via Facebook Live Stream every Wednesday at 7.30pm in Jayde Adams’ Couch Cabaret. Witness a whole host of cabaret stars, artists, stand-ups and more get involved from the comfort of their own homes. Head over to Jayde’s Facebook page this Wednesday 27 April for a good old giggle...

If courtroom drama makes you tick you’re going to love this one - until this Thursday 30 April you can stream It’s True, It’s True, It’s True for free. Breach Theatre's play is a gripping dramatisation of the 1612 trial of Agostino Tassi for the rape of young painter, Artemisia Gentileschi. Based on surviving court transcripts, this Fringe First (2018) award winning show blends history, myth and contemporary commentary to make you question how much has really changed in the last four centuries? Catch it whilst you can!


Jon and Jay aka. folk duo Ninebarrow were overwhelmed by the support after their first live stream gig on 4 April. Not only did they receive amazing messages, feedback and donations, they felt a wonderful sense of community. Good news is that they'll be back and doing it again via Vimeo live stream this Saturday 2 May at 7pm with a totally different set of songs. Find out more on their website and set a reminder for your Saturday night in!

See you next Monday for more #ProgrammerPicks!
