Oxford University: Geek or Chic?

Oxford University: Geek or Chic?

1st May 2013

‘Oxford University-the home to numerous geeky students who move away from daddy’s estate each year, to specialise in their area of excellence. They live within the walls of Hogwarts-esque buildings, in a bubble away from the rest of society, as they have come to university to work, not to play.

Beth Vyse: Going Dark

Beth Vyse: Going Dark

17th April 2014

Final show klaxon! This is your last chance to see Beth Vyse in her show 'Going Dark'. 

'Going Dark' charts the fantastical story of a dying actress, Betsy Lynn, and the cast of increasingly bizarre characters she encounters.

Described as “Julie Walters meets The Mighty Boosh”, you can expect a whirlwind of the surreal, sublime and completely ridiculous.

Having trained as an actress, Beth Vyse spent two seasons with the RSC before continuing to work in radio, TV and theatre up and down the country. She now performs, wr…
