Festival fatigue definitely took its toll last week -  I was so bogged down in Edinburgh spreadsheets that I totally forgot to add that this weekend (Fri 26 - Sun 28 Jul) you can catch a sneak preview of some of the work headed that way,  via Theatre in the Mill, Bradford's Edinburgh Weekender which includes Katherina Radeva (Two Destination Language), Javaad Alipoor, Demi Nandhra, Duncan Speakman, Ben Mills and others.

Meanwhile, closer to home, Refract Festival is continuing at Waterside Arts, Sale (til Sat 27 Jul) including Catching Comets with Beach Body Ready tonight, Mon 22 Jul; Meraki Collective on Wed 24 Jul; Nathaniel Hall (with Fulfilment) on Thu 25 Jul and Motionhouse on Sat 27 Jul.

Below a repeat of my Edinburgh Fringe (2-26 Aug) info:

2019 is a British Council Showcase year - which is a good place to start - though much of it may have already been to parts mancunian (in which case I'm not highlighting it here).  While most things on my radar are, as ever, at Summerhall, there's more than a smattering at Zoo SouthsidePleasance, plus a lot of interesting-looking dance at DanceBase, which is where I'd be heading if I had more time.

For my own whistlestop daytrip purposes, on the shortlist is: Cade + McAskillEmma FranklandOntroerend GoedScottee + FriendsCatherine HoffmanLucy McCormick, Seke Chimutengwende + Alexandrina HemsleyLouise OrwinHarry Clayton-WrightDaniel Hellman, Javaad AlipoorDressedBryony KimmingsMr + Mrs ClarkRidiculusmusConcha Vidal.

If you want to dig a bit deeper, once again I've uploaded WoW's long list (sorted by artist name) at the Weekly Warning blog. As ever, it's just my pick for my own purposes, largely from paper and I don't really focus on internationals as they're beyond our programming paygrade. For a tipster more reliable and with broader tastes, you can now find Lyn Gardner's picks via Stagedoor. Final tips - check dates carefully as you don't want to fall prey to random days off - and my main tip is to log-in to EdFringe, and use the favourites facility (you can then export them as a spreadsheet and sort it as you please - it's what keeps me sane!)

After this unplanned addendum, I really am hoping to put this on a break... see you end August!

As the festival frenzy threatens to fizzle in Mancunia, the hibernian horror is about to heat up!

In these parts you can still catch Claire Cunningham's Thank You Very Much at the Ukrainian Cultural Centre in Cheetham Hill (til Sat 20 Jul) and Animals of Manchester at the Whitworth/Whitworth Park on Sat 20 + Sun 21 Jul.

Refract Festival is in full swing at Waterside Arts, Sale (til Sat 27 Jul) including Kapow's Adrifton Sat 20 Jul; Claire Gaydon's See-Through in double bill with Ransack Theatre's Catching Comets on Sun 21 Jul and next week (w/c 22 Jul) Catching Comets with Beach Body Ready on Mon 22 Jul; Meraki Collective on Wed 24 Jul; Nathaniel Hall (with Fulfilment) on Thu 25 Jul and Motionhouse on Sat 27 Jul.

As promised, looking north and ahead, here are my ramblings on Edinburgh Fringe (2-26 Aug) - so if you've no plans in that direction, you can skip to the end! 

2019 is a British Council Showcase year - which is a good place to start - though much of it may have already been to parts Mancunian (in which case I'm not highlighting it here). While most things on my radar are, as ever, at Summerhall, there's more than a smattering at Zoo Southside + Pleasance, plus a lot of interesting-looking dance at DanceBase, which is where I'd be heading if I had more time.

For my own whistlestop daytrip purposes, on the shortlist is: Cade + McAskillEmma FranklandOntroerend GoedScottee + FriendsCatherine Hoffman, Lucy McCormick, Seke Chimutengwende + Alexandrina HemsleyLouise OrwinHarry Clayton-WrightDaniel Hellman, Javaad AlipoorDressedBryony KimmingsMr + Mrs ClarkRidiculusmusConcha Vidal.

If you want to dig a bit deeper, once again I've uploaded WoW's long list below (as both pdf and Excel, sorted by artist name). As ever, it's just my pick for my own purposes, largely from paper, and I don't really focus on internationals as they're beyond our programming paygrade. For a tipster more reliable and with broader tastes, you can now find Lyn Gardner's picks via Stagedoor. Usual tips - check dates carefully as you don't want to fall prey to random days off - and my main tip is to log-in to EdFringe, and use the favourites facility (you can then export them as a spreadsheet and sort it as you please - it's what keeps me sane!)

Unless something major crops up, this Weekly Warning is going to go on break now until late August, when I'll be back with what's coming up in the Autumn. 

On a final sad note, we were truly shocked to hear of the death of Dave Murray (QuietmanDave). His was one of the very few strong supportive critical voices out there - as well as just being a lovely man - he'll be very much missed.

The steps of this festival dance get ever more intricate as, with a dance-card full of MIF, Refract Festival is hovering ready to step onto the floor...

This weekend is when the MIF programme really reaches crescendo - including Rimini Protokoll's Utopolis Manchester (til 13 Jul) in the City Centre; Philip Glass + Phelim McDermott's The Tao of Glass (til 20 Jul) and the Laurie Anderson's To The Moon (12-20 Jul) both at the Royal Exchange Theatre; plus Trajal Harrell's Maggie The Cat at Dancehouse (11-14 Jul); and Studio Créole at Academy 1 (12-14 Jul).

Liz Richardson's Swim continues at HOME til Sat 13 Jul; while Yara Boustany's Double Bill is at The Lowry on Sat 13 Jul; and Europia Art Collective's kukuryku is at a secret location on Sun 14 Jul. In Liverpool, Dana Dajani's Heroine With A Thousand Dresses is at the Bluecoat also Sat 13 Jul.

Next week (w/c 15 Jul) in MIFworld look out for Claire Cunningham's Thank You Very Much at the Ukrainian Cultural Centre in Cheetham Hill (17-20 Jul) and Animals of Manchester at the Whitworth/Whitworth Park on Sat 20 + Sun 21 Jul.

Just as MIF is starting to wind down, Refract Festival sparks up at Waterside Arts, Sale (18-27 Jul) including Kapow's Adrift on Sat 20 Jul; while Claire Gaydon's See-Through forms a double bill with Ransack Theatre's Catching Comets on Sun 21 Jul.

The following week (w/c 22 Jul) Refract has the aforementioned Catching Comets in a double bill with Beach Body Ready on Mon 22 Jul; Meraki Collective on Wed 24 Jul; Nathaniel Hall on Thu 25 Jul (double billed with Fulfilment) and Motionhouse on Sat 27 Jul.

Of course it doesn't all stop there - as next-up is Edinburgh, so next week (just in case you haven't had enough) I'll attempt a few Fringe pointers - along with my 'long list'!

So Yoko Ono has officially rung in the start of MIF (til 21 Jul) but there are still other things in the air: 

This weekend Lowri Evans, Renato Bolelli Rebouças & Rodolfo Amorim's Precarious Carnaval takes place along The Bridgewater Canal (5-7 Jul) and Gesturing Refugees is at the Bluecoat on Sat 6 Jul (part of Liverpool Arabic Arts Festival).

Beyond MIF, in Mancunia, Liz Richardson's Swim is at (HOME 9-13 Jul); while Yara Boustany's Double Bill is at The Lowry on Sat 13 Jul; and Europia Art Collective's kukuryku is at a secret location on Sun 14 Jul.
Elsewhere, Liverpool Arabic Arts Festival sees Yara Boustany at the Unity Theatre on Thu 11 Jul and Dana Dajani's Heroine With A Thousand Dresses at the Bluecoat on Sat 13 Jul. Over in Leeds, Live Art Bistro's Newk returns on Wed 17 Jul.

So, on the brink of July, with an actual fleeting facsimile of summer, we have moved from festival flurry to full-on frenzy!

This weekend Incoming Festival continues at HOME (until Sun 30 Jun) - with The Pappy Show's Girls catching my eye, tonight Fri 28 Jun; while also tonight, at The Lowry, Mohamed Toukabri's The Upside Down Man also merits investigation.

Next week (w/c 1 Jul) Before the MIF monster becomes all-consuming, spare a thought for Lowri Evans, Renato Bolelli Rebouças & Rodolfo Amorim's Precarious Carnaval along The Bridgewater Canal (5-7 Jul) and Gesturing Refugees at the Bluecoat on Sat 6 Jul (part of Liverpool Arabic Arts Festival).

MIF (4-21 Jul) officially kicks off with Yoko Ono Bells for Peace in Cathedral Gardens on Thu 4 Jul; plus Invisible Cities at Mayfield (2-14 Jul); and CYC & Chim Pom A Drunk Pandemic (5-21 Jul).

The following week (w/c 8 Jul) sees Rimini Protokoll's Utopolis Manchester (10-13 Jul); Philip Glass + Phelim McDermott's The Tao of Glass (11-20 Jul) and the Laurie Anderson's To The Moon (12-20 Jul) both at the Royal Exchange Theatre; plus Trajal Harrell's Maggie The Catat Dancehouse (11-14 Jul).

Paddling against the tide of MIF, Liz Richardson's Swim is at HOME 9-13 Jul; while elsewhere, Liverpool Arabic Arts Festival sees Yara Boustany's ēvolvō + One Day and One Night Beirut at the Unity Theatre on Thu 11 Jul and Dana Dajani's Heroine With A Thousand Dresses at the Bluecoat on Sat 13 Jul. 

Pace yourselves well, as after that you've still got a week of MIF to go (with, notably Claire Cunningham + Animals of Manchester) plus Refract Festival at Waterside Arts also entering the festival fray...

On this changeable solstice morning floating in a soggy swamp of June, the mancunian festival vibe trucks on: 

This weekend Co:LAB Festival is at the Royal Exchange Theatre, 21-23 Jun, including Ali Wilson with Amy Lawrence tonight, Fri 21 Jun; and String Lines + YESYESNONO tomorrow, Sat 22 Jun. Meanwhile, Powder Keg's This Is Where It Happened is at Didsbury Arts Festival on Sat 22+ Sun 23 Jun;

Next week (w/c 24 Jun) brings Incoming Festival to HOME (24-30 Jun) - MALAPROP Theatreand The Pappy Show caught my attention. Elsewhere, at The Lowry, Mohamed Toukabri's The Upside Down Man  on Fri 28 Jun looks intriguing.

The following week (w/c 1 Jul) The Bridgewater Canal is the site for Lowri Evans, Renato Bolelli Rebouças & Rodolfo Amorim's Precarious Carnaval (5-7 Jul) while, beyond parts Mancunian, look out for Gesturing Refugees at the Bluecoat on Sat 6 Jul (part of Liverpool Arabic Arts Festival).

Manchester sees the start of MIF (4-21 Jul) - actually kicking off on Tue 2 Jul with Invisible Cities at Mayfield (2-14 Jul); followed by the Yoko Ono Bells for Peace official opening in Cathedral Gardens on Thu 4 Jul. CYC & Chim Pom are also in the bowels of the city for the largely sold-out A Drunk Pandemic (5-21 Jul).
The pace of MIF picks up for the second weekend (12-14 Jul).  This is probably when they'll be expecting a travelling audience - so you might want to look ahead and book for anything that takes your fancy. Things that piqued my interest were Rimini ProtokollThe Tao of GlassTrajal Harrell (plus the Laurie Anderson VR project, which keeps running til 22 Jul).

Enjoy the longest day of the year - the miserable cynic in me says it's all downhill from here!

So I'm back, a bit sooner than intended as I've just spotted a couple of festivals that have snuck in... in fact over the next couple of weeks small festivals abound!

This weekend Contact Young Company + Young Identity's New Masters#New Futures is at Manchester Art Gallery (until Sun 16 Jun); the mysterious HorsLits happens in Levenshulme tonight Fri 14 Jun; and Ockham's Razor's This Time is at The Lowry (until Sat 15 Jun). Horizons Festival is at HOME: and Welcome to the UK on Sat 15; and Cohere on Sun 16 look intriguing.
In Liverpool Physical Fest 2019 has Rowena Gander's Ten Inch Heels tonight Fri 14 Jun and Gandini Juggling Project's Smashed on Sat 15 Jun, both at the Unity Theatre.

Next week (w/c 17 Jun) Horizons continues with Sir Pe Talwa on Mon 17 and Declaration on Tue 17,  then there's Nassim Soleimanpou's Nassim (18-20 Jun), all at HOME. Hannah Buckley + Crystal Zillwood's double bill is at The Lowry on Wed 19 Jun); Fracture Patterns at NIAMOS looks interesting on Thu 20 Jun; and Powder Keg's This Is Where It Happened is at Didsbury Arts Festival on Sat 22+ Sun 23 Jun. Further afield, First Person is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University (20+21 Jun).
Co:LAB Festival is at the Royal Exchange Theatre 21-23 Jun. 3 days of emerging work, including Ali Wilson with Amy Lawrence on Fri 21 Jun + YESYESNONO on Sat 22 Jun. NB to see the full programme listings open the Event Information tab on their Festival page.

The following week (w/c 24 Jun) sees Incoming Festival at HOME (24-30 Jun). I know nothing beyond the copy, from which I'm kind of surmising that it's largely in territory more theatrical but with 14 shows over 7 nights, there's plenty to pick from. MALAPROP Theatre and The Pappy Show piqued my interest.
Elsewhere, at The Lowry, Mohamed Toukabri's The Upside Down Man looks intriguing.

That festival flurry is just warm-up for the big ones to come as the following week sees the start of MIF (4-21 Jul) - which in turn is training for the usual Caledonian behemoth thereafter!

On this last day of May, this week I can't pretend to be an actual News service - no resignations unfolding before my eyes - nor have I come across an awful lot of performance news to break, so I'll keep it brief...

This weekend Hush Hushis at The Lowry tonight, Fri 31 May and/or you can do a workshop with Igor + Moreno inside the Arboria Luminarium on Salford Quays. 
Next week (w/c  3 Jun) HOME has This Egg's Dressed(4-8 Jun) and the LBT, Huddersfield has Paul O'Donnell's We've Got Each Other on Fri 7 Jun.
The following week (w/c 10 Jun) broadening the artform outlook a touch sees Contact Young Company + Young Identity at Manchester Art Gallery (12-16 Jun) and Ockham's Razor at The Lowry (13-15 June).
In Liverpool, Physical Fest 2019 (10-15 Jun) gets underway including Rowena GanderIzumi AshizawaMeraki Collective and Gandini Juggling Project.
The week after that (w/c 17 Jun) there's Nassim Soleimanpour at HOME (18-20 Jun), Hannah Buckley + Crystal Zillwood at The Lowry (Wed 19 Jun); First Person at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University (20+21 Jun); and Powder Keg at Didsbury Arts Festival on 22+23 Jun.

Since there does seem to be a bit of a lull, unless something unmissable crops up, I might give your inboxes a rest for a couple of weeks - but will be back later in June with a look at Incoming Festival and MIF.

As I write, the PM has just resigned and the title of this mail could well be even more prophetic than intended! In matters more intentionally performative, make the most of what's on now, as it looks like we might be heading for a bit of a fallow patch.

This weekend in Manchester you can still catch Hofesh Schechter's Grand Finale (til 25 May) and Brian Lobel's BINGE (til 26 May) both at HOME. 
In Preston Derelict Mayhem is tonight Fri 24 + tomorrow Sat 25 May at the Media Factory (it's showing as sold out but, as it's free, there's potential for no-shows resulting in tickets on the door). 
Tonight, Fri 24 May, also sees Avital Raz's My Jerusalem at Sheffield's Festival of Debate and Proto-type Theater's The Audit at Barnsley Civic; while tomorrow, Sat 25 May, sees Jamal Gerald's Idol at Bradford Theatre in the Mill.  

Next week (w/c 27 May) we seem to be hitting half-term/summer lull so make the most of Word of Warning at The Lowry for Amy Bell's The Forecast on Wed 29 May.  The Lowry also has Paula Varjack's The Cult of K*nzo on Thu 30 May + Hush Hush on Fri 31 May. 

The following week (w/c 3 Jun) initial trawling so far has only turned up Dressed at HOME and Paul O'Donnell in Huddersfield.

Enjoy the last bank holiday for a while and hope to see you at the Lowry for Amy Bell's The Forecast.

The cool that today brings comes as some relief, as STUN Studio was a bit of furnace - both actual but more importantly creative for last night's Works Ahead.  Tonight, Fri 17 May, is your second (and last) chance to see Mark Croasdale + Avital Raz's affecting new works in development.

This weekend on Sun 19 May, Contact presents the Raze Up showcase at Sale Waterside; while further afield, today, Fri 17 May (daytime) is Fabiola Santana's A Home for Grief in Lancaster City Centre; and on Sun 19 May Louise Orwin's Oh Yes Oh No is at the Continental in Preston.

Next week (w/c 20 May) HOME has Hofesh Schechter's Grand Finale (22-25 May) and Brian Lobel's BINGE (24-26 May).
This side of the Pennines Emma Decent's I Don't Know What I'm Supposed To Be Doing is at various libraries around Greater Manchester + Lancashire (20-24 May); while Derelict Mayhemis at the Media Factory, Preston on Fri 24 + Sat 25 May.
Across the Pennines, LBT Huddersfield has a Pairs double bill with Lizzie Klotz + Victoria Firthon Tue 21 May. Proto-type Theater's The Audit is at Sheffield Crucible on Wed 22 May + Barnsley Civic on Fri 24 May, while A Machine They Are Secretly Building is at Harrogate Studio Theatre on Thu 23 May. Avital Raz's My Jerusalem is also part of Sheffield's Festival of Debate on Fri 24 May; and Jamal Gerald's Idol is at Bradford Theatre in the Mill on Sat 25 May.  

The following week (w/c 27 May) is a bit quieter - but sees the final outing of the season for Word of Warning with Amy Bell's The Forecast at The Lowry (also giving home to Paula VarjackHush Hush).

I'm off back to fanning the flames (not!) of Works Ahead - hope to see you there!

As this damp squib of May trickles by, I'm lifting my head momentarily from the shadows of Works Ahead  pre-production in an attempt to look beyond the end of my own nose...

Less myopically, this weekend at HOME there's Bertrand Lesca + Nasi Voutsas's One (tonight Fri 10 May) and Peaches Christ's Drag Becomes Her (until tomorrow Sat 11 May); while at The Lowry, Rhiannon Faith's Smack That is also tomorrow, Sat 11 May.
Leeds International Festival also continues with The Grief Series' All That Lives, Feasts tonight, Fri 10 May at the Merrion Centre and Tommy Cash + Yves Tumor's JUICEBOX tomorrow, Sat 11 May at Brewery Green at The Tetley.

Next week (w/c 13 May) sees Word of Warning in action again with the aforementioned Works Ahead 2019 in STUN Studio at Z-arts on Thu 16 + Fri 17 May: a risky night out or a good night in, two explorations of inner conflict, outer division, and the politics of oppression from Mark Croasdale + Avital Raz.
On Sun 19 May, Contact presents the Raze Up showcase at Sale Waterside; while further afield, also on Thu 16 + Fri 17 May (daytime) is Fabiola Santana's A Home for Grief in Lancaster City Centre

The following week (w/c 20 May) Hofesh Schechter and Brian Lobel are at HOME; LBT Huddersfield has a Pairs doublebillDerelict Mayhem is in Preston and Jamal Gerald is in Bradford

I'm now diving back into a dark box to figure out a world of light and shadow for Works Ahead!

Bank holidays seem to be like buses, you wait for months then 3 come along at once... so from my long working weekend last week, I'm now looking at an indulgent 3 day stretch and debating whether to fill it with another trip across the Pennines...

This weekend it's all go in Leeds with the concluding part of Transform Festival, running until Sat 4 May with: Action Hero's Oh Europa continuing; plus machina eX's Rewire LeedscolectivA ocupaçao's When It Breaks It Burns (coming to Manchester next week), Tianzhuo Chen's An Atypical Brain Damage + Julian Hetzel's All Inclusive.
Slung Low at The Holbeck have BÉZNĀ Theatre's Illegalised on Sun 5 May; while Leeds International Festival (2-12 May) is also up and running.
Closer to home, CYC + BAC Homegrown's Ramping Up is at the Bread Shed (Fri 3 + Sat 4 May); and in Liverpool, Imitating the Dog's Heart of Darkness is at the Playhouse (until 4 May). 

Next week (w/c 6th May) Contact presents colectivA ocupaçao When It Breaks It Burns at Millennium Powerhouse (Wed 8 + Thu 9 May). Bertrand Lesca + Nasi Voutsas's One (8-10 May) +Peaches Christ's Drag Becomes Her (8-11 May) are at HOME; while Rhiannon Faith's Smack That is at The Lowry on Sat 11 May.

Leeds International Festival continues with Rachel Mars + Greg Wohead's Story #1 on Mon 6 May at Brewery Green at The Tetley; Maya Chowdhry's What's Eating Reality on Tue 7 May at 3 Sheaf Street; Hannah Buckley's The Mountain and Other Tales of She Transformed on Wed 8 May at Leeds Arts University; The Grief Series' All That Lives, Feasts on Fri 10 May at the Merrion Centre; and Tommy Cash + Yves Tumor's JUICEBOX on Sat 11 May at Brewery Green at The Tetley.

The following week (w/c 13 May) quite terrifyingly for us, it's all about Works Ahead 2019 in STUN Studio at Z-arts; or check out Fabiola Santana in Lancaster.

Have a good workers' break!

Having 'landed' at 2am from a mad evening show-dash to London, I'm feeling decidedly skew-whiff this morning - possibly fitting on the eve of Haphazard, just not necessarily helpful.
Before we get too haphazardous, tonight, Fri 26 Apr, you can catch Company of Others' Crackle. Dust in STUN Studio after which Z-arts erupts into the foaming farrago of Haphazard 2019 (12-3pm, tomorrow, Sat 27 Apr).

In Leeds, Transform Festival (26 Apr - 4 May) gets going (brochure here). This first weekend(26-28 April) includes Action Hero's Oh Europa (events throughout; guided tours 27 + 28 Apr); Motus's MDLSX + Luis Garay's Daimón (both 26+27 Apr); 70/30 Split's bYOB (27 Apr), Jamal Gerald's Idol (27 + 28 Apr)+ nora chipaumire's #Punk (28 Apr).

Next week (w/c 29 Apr) also sees Company Wayne McGregor's Autobiography at the Lowry on Tue 30 Apr, while CYC + BAC Homegrown's Ramping Up is at the Bread Shed (Fri 3 + Sat 4 May).  Imitating the Dog's Heart of Darkness is at Liverpool Playhouse (1-4 May).
Transform Festival continues with its second week (1- 4 May), including machina eX, Future Radicals, colectivA ocupaçao (also coming to Manchester), Tianzhuo Chen + Julian Hetzel.

The following week (w/c 6 May) Contact presents colectivA ocupaçao at Millennium Powerhouse; Bertrand Lesca + Nasi Voutsas are at HOME; while Rhiannon Faith is at The Lowry.

Hope to see you all for some haphazard fun on Saturday... we even have 'butterchimpel' badges..!

A Thursday afternoon Weekly Warning feels a bit wonky, but with Haphazard coming up I thought I'd slip this in before everyone descends into a sugar-induced easter coma! If you're not chocolate-wallowing, this weekend you can still catch Imitating the Dog's Heart of Darkness at the Lowry and Rob Newman's Total Eclipse of Descartes at the Dancehouse, both tonight, Thu 18 Apr; and Amy Voris's Perch at AWOL Studios, at dusk every night in April. Hunt and Darton's Radio Local is also in St Helen's on Sat 20 April.

Next week (w/c 22 April) the pace really picks up. At Z-arts Company of Others' Crackle. Dustis in STUN Studio on Fri 26 April, while on Sat 27 April, we at Word of Warning go into overdrive with Haphazard 2019: a bubbling symphony of a free day out for all ages— clouds of foam, playful shadows, scarecrows with a conscience, a signing musical statue, and the hardest working moth in Tinseltown. Turn up at any time, come and go as you please and expect the unexpected!

Further afield, Lola Maury's Brouhaha is at Theatre in the Mill, Bradford on Wed 24 Apr; while the vacuum cleaner is hosting I Heart Thursdays in St Helen's on Thu 25 Apr.
The big story is over in Leeds for Transform Festival (26 Apr - 4 May). There's a host of international and UK artists so the easiset might be to download the brochure. This first weekend(26-28 April) includes 70/30 Split, Jamal Gerald, Motus + nora chipaumire; while the second week (1- 4 May) includes machina eX, Future Radicals, colectivA ocupaçao (also coming to Manchester), Tianzhuo Chen + Julian Hetzel; with Action Hero running throughout.

The following week (w/c 29 Apr) also sees Company Wayne McGregor at the Lowry, CYC + Homegrown at the Bread Shed.

In other news, our own Works Ahead (16+17 May), featuring Mark Croasdale and Avital Raz is now open for bookings.

Have a lovely, unusually clement, long weekend!

So, on this sunny morning, with April Fool's Day round the corner, you could almost believe that we're on a balcony in Europe, comfortably relaxing with a coffee, rather than on the edge and about to jump...

Anyway, this weekend, at The Lowry, you can still catch Luca Silvestrini's Protein's Border Tales (Fri 29 Mar), ZU-UK's Binaural Dinner Date and Mark Morris Dance's Pepperland (both Fri 29 + Sat 30 Mar); while Jinkx Monsoon + Major Scales' The Ginger Snapped is at HOME (until Sat 30 Mar).  Further afield, Imitating the Dog's Redux Residency culminates in a sharing tonight, Fri 29 March at Theatre in the Mill; and Chris Thorpe's Status is at Unity, Liverpool tomorrow Sat 30 Mar. Unfortunately Performing Britain in Leeds has been cancelled (see facebook for info).

Next week (w/c 1 April) is pretty quiet. For something more theatrical, Contact presents Ad Infinitum's No Kids on Mon 1 April; while the Shoots scratch night is on Tue 2 Apr, both at the Lowry. Mark Thomas's Check Up (Our NHS @ 70) is at Waterside Sale, also Tue 2 Apr; while Made in China's Super Duper Close Up is at Theatre in the Mill, Bradford on Fri 5 Apr. For something totally different, Amy Voris's Perch is at AWOL Studios, at dusk every night in April.

April seems to be something of an elongated Easter slowdown: the following week (w/c 8 April) remains quiet with Señor Serrano's Kingdom is at HOME (9-13 Apr); and Mark Thomas in Liverpool (12+13 Apr); thereafter Imitating the Dog are at the Lowry (16-18 Apr).

The week following Easter gets really busy, including Transform Festival and our own Haphazard(details early next week). Unless something crops up, I'm going to take advantage of the lull to put this Weekly Warning on a break, but will be back in time to tell you more about what's to come that last week of April.

At the end of a week of political pandemoniumpostponement and viral petitions, I feel like my own procrastination skills have been given a masterclass...so, with that in mind, to business:

This weekend
 Scottee's Fat Blokes continues at HOME (until Sat 23 Mar); while tomorrow, Sat 23 Mar Chris Thorpe's Status is at the Royal Exchange. Elsewhere, Imitating the Dog's Heart of Darkness continues at The Duke's, Lancaster (also until Sat 23 Mar);while in Sheffield,  Theatre Deli has Yes Yes No No's [Insert Slogan Here] on Fri 22 Mar; and Paula Varjack's Cult of K*nzo on Sat 23 Mar.

Next week (w/c 25 Mar) is a busy one... The Lowry has Best of BE Festival on Wed 27 Mar; ZU-UK's Binaural Dinner Date  (both Thu 28 + Fri 29 Mar); Luca Silvestrini's Protein's Border Tales on Fri 29 Mar plus Mark Morris Dance's Pepperland on Fri 29 + Sat 30 Mar. Jinkx Monsoon + Major Scales' The Ginger Snapped is at HOME (28-30 Mar).  Further afield, The Shape of the Pain is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University on Mon 25 Mar; Imitating the Dog's Redux Residency culminates in a sharing on Fri 29 March at Theatre in the Mill; and Chris Thorpe's Status is at Unity, Liverpool on Sat 30 Mar.  Over in Leeds, meanwhile, Live Art Bistro have their 24 hour Performing Britain marathon, Fri 29 - Sat 30 Mar.  Artists include Gameshow, Hester Chillingworth, Howl Yuan, Katy Dye, Pauilne Mayers,Rachael Clerke, Rachel Gomme, Sh!t Theatre, whatsthebigmistry, Xavier de Sousa, Foxy + Husk among others.

The following week (w/c 1 April) possibly ominously given the date, things seem to be extremely quiet - but Mark Thomas returns to these parts; while Made in China are in Bradford.

I'll stop procrastinating on my current task at hand - attempting to design some truly haphazard print - at least, for once, the thematic matches my skill levels!

As March continues full of ferocious bluster, both meteorological and political, seemingly blowing us into a groundhog loop, maybe the performance world will offer a bit of respite...

This weekend you can still catch Tmesis Theatre's Beyond Belief at The Lowry, tonight Fri 15 Mar; and Rachel Mars's Your Sexts Are Sh*tat the Royal Exchange Theatre, tonight, Fri 15 and tomorrow, Sat 16 Mar. Over in Sheffield you can see Xavier Velastin + Hannah Mook's Me and My Whale at Theatre Deli on Sat 16 + Sun 17 Mar.

Next week (w/c 18 Mar) we, at Word of Warning, are at the Lowry for Katy Dye's Baby Face on Wed 20 Mar; while  Scottee's Fat Blokes returns to HOME (19-23 Mar); and Chris Thorpe's Status is at the Royal Exchange on Sat 23 Mar. Elsewhere, Imitating the Dog's Heart of Darknessis at The Duke's, Lancaster (19-23 Mar); and the Arts Centre at Edgehill University has Vincent Dance's Shut Down on Tue 19 Mar and Dam Van Hunyh's Dep on Thu 21 Mar.  Over in Sheffield,  Theatre Deli is busy with Shey Hargreaves's Sick on Wed 20 Mar, Willy Hudson's Bottom on Thu 21 Mar; Yes Yes No No's [Insert Slogan Here] on Fri 22 Mar; and Paula Varjack's Cult of K*nzo on Sat 23 Mar.

The following week (w/c 25 Mar) Jinkx Monsoon + Major Scales are at HOME; Luca Silvestrini's Protein is at The Lowry; Imitating the Dog are in residence in Bradford; while Chris Thorpe is ubiquitous with The Shape of the Pain at Edgehill; and Status in Liverpool.  Over in Leeds, meanwhile, Live Art Bistro have their 24 hour Brexit wake: Performing Britain.

I'm off to battle with the winds and with a website half in English, half in German in an act of last-minute essential euro-shopping/stockpiling. Hope to see you at Baby Face!

So on this grey March morning, if you're organised enough to plan your show diary 3 months ahead, the MIF tickets go on sale this afternoon and, whilst I can't imagine a Take That- or BTS-style ticket frenzy, you might want to look lively on a couple of things!

This weekend you can still catch Sleepwalk Collective's Kourtney Kardashian and Mark Thomas's Check-up: Our NHS @ 70 - both at HOME tonight Fri 8 and tomorrow Sat 9 Mar. Further afield, the LBT, Huddersfield has Fran Bushe's Ad Libido (Sat 9 Mar) and Keisha Thompson Man On The Moon (Sun 10 Mar). 

Next week (w/c 11 Mar) home, The Lowry goes physical Hijinx + Teatro La Ribalta Into The Light  on Wed 13 Mar and Tmesis Theatre's Beyond Belief on Thu 14 + Fri 15 Mar; while the Royal Exchange Theatre has Rachel Mars Your Sexts Are Sh*t (14-16 Mar).

The following week (w/c 18 Mar) Scottee returns to HOME; while Chris Thorpe is at the Royal Exchange. Imitating the Dog are in Lancaster; Vincent Dance and Dam Van Hunyh at Edgehill; and Shey HargreavesWilly Hudson and Yes Yes No No in Sheffield.

I'm off to the Haphazard selection meeting which will inevitably descend into a Twister-style game, ordering tiny coloured post-it notes onto a map of the building - not a pretty image for a Friday afternoon!

Apparently we're now in meteorological spring - which seems to mean summer has been and gone. On this first of March I'm more than a little bleary and jaded from the 'ravery' of last night's 100th Word of Warning event, so I welcome a quiet weekend, but if you're looking for an outing, you can still catch Wise Children at HOME (til 2 Mar).

Next week (w/c 4 Mar) HOME also has Sleepwalk Collective's Kourtney Kardashian (7-9 March) and Mark Thomas's Check-up: Our NHS @ 70 (Fri 8 + Sat 9 Mar). Further afield, Joan Cléville's Plan B for Utopia is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University on Tue 5 Mar; Dam Van Huynh's DEP is at Lancaster Arts on Wed 6 Mar; while the LBT, Huddersfield is busy with Katy Dye's Baby Face (Wed 6 Mar - also coming to The Lowry on 20 Mar), Fran Bushe's Ad Libido(Sat 9 Mar) and Keisha Thompson Man On The Moon (Sun 10 Mar). 

The following week (w/c 11 Mar) the 'Mancunia vs everywhere else' tables seem to have turned and it all seems to be close to home, with Hijinx + Teatro La Ribalta  and Tmesis at The Lowry; and Rachel Mars at the Royal Exchange.

I'm off to curl up with a set of Haphazard proposals - not sure if that's exactly the panacea needed by my aching brain and body!

As March looms and, with it, fabled mad hares, Word of Warning is gearing up for a raving return to the 90s for its 100th event. Before that on this unseasonably pleasant morning, if you're looking for an outing,then SLAP festival in York (til 23 Feb) might be the place to go - including Beth Cassani + Joseph Mercier (tonight Fri 22 Feb) and Ben Mills,Ali Matthews +Panic Lab (tomorrow, Sat 23 Feb).

Next week (w/c 25 Feb) for something theatrical Wise Children is at HOME (26 Feb - 2 Mar); or further afield, Lancaster Arts has Verveon Mon 25 Feb + Quarantine's Wallflower on Thu 28 Feb. Thursday is generally busy with Dam Van Hunyh's DEP at Axis, Crewe; and Katy Dye's Babyface at Theatre Deli in Sheffield (coming soon to WTF at The Lowry

That said, and with no hint of bias whatsoever, where you'll *really* want to be on on Thu 28 Feb, is in the decayed splendour of Hulme's NIAMOS for Will Dickie's The Rave Space.

The following week(w/c 4 Mar) Sleepwalk Collectiveand Mark Thomasare at HOME; Katy DyeFran Bushe and Keisha Thompsonare in Huddersfield; and Dam Van Huynh is in Lancaster.

Hoping to see you at The Rave Space (small hint: wear layers, it's just a tad chilly... til it gets moving!)

For those of us not heart-warmed by the commercial glow of Valentine's, I'm afraid we can't look to performance as an escape, as the half-term lull seems to be on us - though you could still catch 1927's The Animals and Children Took to the Streets at HOME (until Sat 16 Feb).

Next week (w/c 18 Feb) enforced wanderlust continues (though less than I thought, due to month gremlins in our google calendar). Tuckshop Dance Theatre's Neverland is at Storyhouse, Chester on Mon 18 Feb; and Forced Entertainment's To Move In Time is at Lancaster Arts on Tue 19 Feb. Extend your range a bit and there's SLAP festival in York (20-23 Feb) including Emma Geraghty, Beth Cassani + Joseph Mercier, Ben Mills, Ali Matthews and Panic Lab.

The following week (w/c 25 Feb) of course it's all about Word of Warning's 100th event Will Dickie's The Rave Space at NIAMOS on Thu 28 Feb! But through a less myopic lens, there's Wise Children at HOME; Verve + Quarantine in Lancaster; Dam Van Hunyh in Crewe; and Katy Dyein Sheffield (also with us at the Lowry in March, available to book from today).

In the meantime enjoy the unseasonal weather (but you'll be a bit chilly if you believe 'national' 19 degree weather forecasts - 'national' only means south!)

A somewhat desolate, damp start to February can be briefly cheered this weekend with Queer Contact 19's Mother's Ruin at Waterside, Sale, tonight, Fri 8 Feb; and House of Suarez's Vogue Ball at Manchester Academy 2 tomorrow, Sat 9 Feb.  If you're in the mood for a more theatrical stroll, Gare du Nord's Manchester Walking Tour is on Sat 9 Feb, while 1927's The Animals and Children Took to the Streets is ongoing at HOME (until 16 Feb).
Elsewhere, James Wilton's The Storm at Blackpool Grand tonight, Fri 8 Feb.

Next week (w/c 11 Feb) it's all happening on Tuesday and Wednesday and all outside Manchester: Tuckshop Dance Theatre's Neverland is at The Egg Studio, Liverpool on Tue 12 Feb; and Action Transport, Ellesmere Port on Wed 13 Feb. The Arts Centre at Edgehill University has Stuart Waters's Rockbottom on Tue 12 Feb and Greg Wohead's Celebration Florida on Wed 13 Feb; while on Wed 13 Feb you can also pick from: Carroll & Disley's Expanding the Picture II at the Bluecoat, Liverpool; Patrick Campbell's Black Rivers at Axis Crewe; or Lucy Hutson's Bi Curious George and Other Sidekicks at Theatre Deli, Sheffield.

The following week (w/c 18 Feb) Tuckshop Dance is in Chester, Forced Entertainment and Imitating the Dog in Lancaster; and a Lizzie Klotz + Victoria Firth double bill in Huddersfield. A bit beyond our normal range, but possibly worth the extra miles is SLAP festival over in York (20-23 Feb).

In Word of Warning news, we're happy to announce that this year's Works Ahead artists are Mark Croasdale and Avital Raz - more info coming soon... and don't forget you can now book to join us for our 100th event: Will Dickie's The Rave Space at NIAMOS.

So, on this Burns night, we find ourselves hurtling terrifyingly towards February and a bit of a break from the early show flurry.

This weekend HOME's PUSH reaches its conclusion with Nwando Ebizie's Distorted Constellations (Fri 25 + Sat 26 Jan) and tomorrow, Sat 26 Jan Chanje Kunda's Plant Fetish and Javaad Alipoor's Propel.  Elsewhere in Manchester, Jo Fong + Sonia Hughes's Neither Here Nor There is at CFCCA on Sat 26 + Sun 27 Jan.

Next week (w/c 28 Jan) things seem to quieten right down in Manchester - but further afield you could check out Michael Pinchbeck's new work with New Perspectives Theatre A Fortunate Man at Axis, Crewe on Fri 31 Jan or In The Palm Of My Hand at The Bluecoat, Liverpool on Sat 2 Feb.

The following week (w/c 4 Feb) 1927 is at HOME; Queer Contact 19 has Mother's Ruin at Waterside, Sale and the Vogue Ball at the Academy. Elsewhere, Luca Rutherford is in Bradford; Reckless Sleepers in Crewe; James Wilton in Blackpool and Keisha Thompson in Huddersfield.

My plans of heading to London for Now19 tonight have just been foiled, by football of all things (heaving last train back, no thank you)... so I'm contemplating the unexpected possibility of a free evening!

Right now I feel like I've been somewhat rudely awoken from hibernation and thrust into a world of noisy confusion (though that could be something to do with a 2am return from London).  This January flurry of activity is a little discombobulating... but take advantage now as it all calms down markedly come the end of the month. 

This weekend PUSH continues at HOME with Mighty Heart Theatre's Binge tonight, Fri 18 and tomorrow, Sat 19 Jan); Josh Coates's Angels; plus, at Caustic Coastal, Nwando Ebizie's Distorted Constellations (ongoing until 26 Jan).

Next week (w/c 21 Jan) PUSH's final week sees Babel Theatre's The Fall on Mon 21 Jan; a repeat outing for Conor A's Learning To Swim On An Ironing Board on Tue 22 Jan; James Monaghan/Sheep Knuckle's Forest(23-25 Jan),Gareth Cutter's Come Closer on Fri 25 Jan; and, on Sat 26 Jan, Chanje Kunda's Plant Fetishand Javaad Alipoor's Propel.
Leo Burtin's The Futurist Cookbook is at the Lowry on Wed 23 Jan; Jo Fong + Sonia Hughes's Neither Here Nor Thereis at CCFCA on Sat 26 + Sun 27 Jan; Ruth Cockburn's Love Letters From Blackpool is at The Met, Bury on Thu 24 Jan. A lot further afield, Rosana Cade + Ivor McAskill Moot Moot at MAC Birmingham on Wed 23 Jan.

The following week(w/c 28 Jan) things seem to quieten right down again - but you could check out Michael Pinchbeck's new work with New Perspectives Theatre at Axis, Crewe or In The Palm Of My Hand at The Bluecoat, Liverpool.

Here at Word of Warning, we're pleased to unleash our Spring/Summer 2019 season - kicking off on Thu 28 Feb with a special outing to the atmospheric (faded) grandeur of Hulme's NIAMOS for Will Dickie's The Rave Space - which just so happens to be our hundredth event! We're also welcoming Katy Dye and Amy Bell, plus there's another outing for the very bonkers Haphazard; and new Works Ahead commissions to come.

Still a little bleary from the break, nevertheless here we go for another year – and HOME is giving us a good shove out of hibernation and into PUSH 2019 (11-26 Jan).

This weekend it kicks off with a launch party tonight (Fri 11 Jan), then there's Mighty Heart's Propel scratch night and Fram & Dunt tomorrow, Sat 12 Jan; plus House of Ghetto's The Hidden Pin Up on Sun 13 Jan.
Elsewhere, over in Leeds, Live Art Bistro has Edythe Woolley's Fishy tonight, Fri 11 Jan.

Next week (w/c 14 Jan) PUSH continues with (our own) Emma Geraghty's Fat Girl Singing on Mon 14 + Tue 15 Jan; and includes Conor A's Learning To Swim On An Ironing Board on Wed 16 Jan (+ Tue 22 Jan); Mighty Heart Theatre's Binge (17-19 Jan); Josh Coates's Angels night on Sat 19 Jan plus Nwando Ebizie's Distorted Constellations from Fri 18 Jan (until 26 Jan). 
Further afield, Tin Can People's Katie & Pip is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University on Thu 17 Jan.

The following week (w/c 21 Jan) PUSH includes James MonaghanGareth CutterChanje KundaBabel Theatre + Javaad Alipoor's Propel. The rest of the world is wakingup progressively, with Leo Burtin at the Lowry; Jo Fong + Sonia Hughes at CCFCA; Ruth Cockburn at The Met, Bury and (a lot) further afield Rosana Cade + Ivor McAskill at MAC Birmingham.

I'm also aiming to make some forays to London for NOW 19 and, presuming I make it back, the next Weekly Warning should also contain details of the Word of Warning Spring/Summer 2019 programme. In the meantime, if you're feeling creative and want to turn your hand to all ages live art - have a look at our Haphazard 2019 call for proposals.

So here we are on the eve of December, the last day, apparently, that we can legitimately eschew all things festive. The seasonal slowdown is now upon us, but there are a handful of things you might still want to catch... 

Today, Fri 30 Nov, Waterside, Sale has Nathaniel Hall's First Time (29 Nov-1 Dec - only Saturday Party tickets available); or in Bradford Irregular Arts's Consent is at Theatre in the Mill, Bradford tonight Fri 30 Nov.

Next week (w/c 3 Dec) Sue MacLaine's Vessel is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University on Mon 3 Dec; Lancaster Arts has Maya Chowdhry's What's Eating Our Reality on Tue 4 + Wed 5 Dec (almost sold-out) and Gandini Juggling Project's Sigma on Sat 8 Dec. Live Art Bistro, Leeds is busy with two nights of work from the education sector with NSCD's On/Off on Thu 6 Dec and Leeds Beckett MA's Power|Action|Repeat on Fri 7 Dec; followed by a Queer Migrant Takeoveron Sat 8 Dec.

Thereafter, it really is panto-season so the Weekly Warning is going to take a break, but as a forewarning, 2019 kicks off early with HOME's PUSH Festival (11-26 Jan) - keep your eyes open for details.

The Weekly Warning will be back on 11 Jan 2019 (how did we get to 2019 already?). Until then have a good humbugfest.

As the spectacular Stacy brings Word of Warning's Autumn/Winter 2018 to a close, we can feel the icy grip of tinsel closing in around us. So, before everything succumbs to the 'festive' season...

Today, Fri 23 Nov, Proud & Loud's Cells - A Body of Work is at The Whitworth (til Sun 25 Nov). To see the most, I'd suggest getting there this afternoon - here's a teaser of new piece Assessment! Also tonight, Fri 23 Nov, on Merseyside, Tourette's Hero's Not I is at the Bluecoat, and Cheryl Martin's Alaska is at Open Eye Gallery.

The focus this weekend shifts east to Leeds for Compass Festival (till Sun 25 Nov) including Jack Tan's Four Legs GoodFrench Mottershead's Waterborne (act fast to book the last couple of tickets); Bethany Wells's WarmthScottee's Would Like To MeetAlisa Oleva + Debbie Kent's The Demolition Project and more.  Tomorrow, Sat 24 Nov, seems to be when most things converge - I found page 2 of the brochure really helpful.

Next week, (w/c 26 Nov) we find ourselves on the cusp of December, but there is still a bit of work out there over the next fortnight - so catch it while you can: The Lowry has Aakash Odedra's #Je Suis on Mon 26 Nov; and Gandini Juggling Project's Sigma on Tue 27 Nov; while STUN has Rinkoo Barpaga's Made In India/Britain on Wed 28 Nov and Waterside, Sale has Nathaniel Hall's First Time (29 Nov-1 Dec - only Sat matinee + Party available). 
Elsewhere,  DaDaFest continues with The Depressed Artists' Support Bureau at The Bluecoat, Liverpool on Mon 26 Nov; Split Britches' Retro(per)spective is at Live Art Bistro, Leeds on Thu 29 Nov; and Irregular Arts's Consent is at Theatre in the Mill, Bradford on Fri 30 Nov.

The following week (w/c 3 Dec) Manchester seems to have entered panto-world, but elsewhere Sue MacLaine's Vessel is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University on Mon 3 Dec; Lancaster Arts has Maya Chowdhry's What's Eating Our Reality on Tue 4 + Wed 5 Dec and Gandini Juggling Project's Sigma on Sat 8 Dec; and Live Art Bistro, Leeds has a Queer Migrant Takeover also on Sat 8 Dec.

If anyone has anything (non-festive) between now and mid January that they think should get a mention, please let me know by Wed 28 Nov as the next Weekly Warning will be the last one of the year.

While one of our number jets off to warmer honeymoon climes, those remaining at Word of Warning are cuddling up under our duvets for another visit by the marvellous (and sold-out) Ms Makishi. This may come as cold comfort to those of you who missed out on a ticket, so a quick plea - as it's PWYD, if you've booked a ticket and know you can't use it, please can you cancel it so it can be reallocated; and if you're looking for a ticket, keep checking with The Lowry as they'll release any returns from today.  

But first, this weekend in Mancunia, Travis Alabanza's Burgerz is at the Royal Exchange Theatre (until 17 Nov, also sold-out but you can catch in Liverpool on Sunday); and Contact presents Amy Vreeke's The Year My Vagina Tried To Kill Me at New Adelphi Theatre, University of Salford on Fri 16 + Sat 17 Nov. 

DaDaFest and homotopia continue in Liverpool with Mandy Redvers-Rowe's Measuring Up on Sat 17 Nov at Liverpool Everyman; Fittings Multimedia's Mop The House tonight Fri 16 Nov; Scottee's Fat Blokes on Sat 17 Nov both at the Unity; and Travis Alabanza's Burgerz on Sun 18 Nov at Hope Street Theatre.

Elsewhere, tonight Fri 16 Nov, Kate O'Donnell's You've Changed is at Derelict Live at the Media Factory; Jamal Gerald's Dogmatic is at Theatre Deli in Sheffield; while, in Leeds, Compass Festival is up and running until 25 Nov.

Next week (w/c 19 Nov) Word of Warning's focus is on the Lowry for Tourette's Hero's Not I on Tue 20 + Wed 21 Nov; and Stacy Makishi's The Comforter on Wed 21 Nov (check back for returns). Proud & Loud's Cells - A Body of Work is at The Whitworth Fri 23-Sun 25 Nov, with the solo work on Friday and Assessment on Sat/Sun (my plan to see the most is to go for a long lunch on Friday).

On Merseyside, DaDaFest continues with The Depressed Artists' Support Bureau at The Bluecoat (Mon 19 + 26 Nov); and Mia - Daughters of Fortune on Tue 20 Nov at the Unity;  The Space In Between on Wed 21 Nov at Metal; and Tourette's Hero's Not I on Fri 23 Nov at the Bluecoat.  homotopia has Jinkx Monsoon + Major Scales' The Ginger Snapped on Wed 21 Nov at the Epstein Theatre; and Cheryl Martin's Alaska on Fri 23 Nov at Open Eye Gallery.

Elsewhere Mary Pearson's FoMO mofos! gets an outing to Chester University on Wed 21 Nov. 

Compass Festival is at full tilt Thu 22 - Sun 25 Nov with Jack Tan, French Mottershead, Scottee, Bethany Wells and more.  The weekend (Sat 24 + Sun 25 Nov) seem like the best time for a trip to Leeds, and I found page 2 of the brochure really helpful for an overview.

The following week (w/c 26 Nov) things look like they're beginning to calm down for the season but Aakash Odedra and Gandini Juggling Project are at The Lowry; Split Britches are in Leeds; Irregular Arts in Bradford and Andy Smith is in Lancaster.

Hope to see you all at The Lowry for a touch of 'comfort'!
