SISTER MARY'S BIG SUNDAY SHOW
Tickets: £10 / £8.50
Each month our favourite nun presents a quality street selection of artists as well as treating you all to the mellifluous tones and high brow wit that comes from Sister Mary herself.
We’re harking back to the good old nights at the London Palladium. We may not have Tommy Trinder, The Tiller Girls or a revolving stage, but we do hope that you will join us for some good old fashioned entertainment.

NEXT BIG SHOW: SUNDAY JUNE 19TH, 5PM
Twins Macabre, Richard Gresham & Lucy Fredericks
The Twins Macabre are a deliciously dark character comedy duo as featured on BBC3's Live at the Electric and BBC Radio 4's Sketchorama.
Maurice and Ivy Macabre are 10-year-old psychic siblings who have a penchant for finger painting and murder. The pair conjure the souls of the damned through twisted sketches and original comedy songs. High-energy, fast-paced comedy intertwined with vaudevillian theatrics and ghoulish music!
The Twins and have performed at the Edinburgh Fringe, Canary Wharf Spiegeltent, Brighton Fringe, London Horror Fest and Vault Festival. The pair also recently appeared in the acclaimed World Stage Premiere of Richard O'Brien's Rocky Horror sequel Shock Treatment.

SUNDAY JULY 17TH, 5PM
Silky, John Danbury, Jo Wickham
Silky’s fourth ever stand-up gig was the televised 1995 BBC New Comedy Awards Final. This is not typical in comedy but Silky is no typical comedian.
For two decades, he’s been charming audiences with his Liverpudlian lilt and unrivalled wordsmithery. Whether playing to a sea of faces at Glastonbury or charming the crowd at more intimate comedy clubs, Silky’s affinity with audiences is assured.
Sharing the stage with his trusty guitar, he can conjure up a sonorous stunner on the spot and pick through previously played pieces with such a natural dexterity it’s a wonder he’s not simply a professional musician. His improvisational skills and natural sense of joy are addictive, making him hugely popular with comedy fans and fellow comedians alike.
Massively engaging stand-up whose instinctive rapport with audiences makes him welcome wherever he goes. - Guardian Guide
Supremely talented as a musical comedian, with inventive chord progressions and punch lines neatly packed into rhymes that are never strained… - Broadway Baby ★★★★
