Basement Spaceman: Presents an encore performance of ‘Hubble’, the engaging story of NASA’s original space telescope. The early disappointments, the high stakes rescue mission and the world’s most expensive contact lens are covered in this highly visual ‘One of a kind’ psychedelic show. Come ready for an ’off world’ experience that you won’t forget.

Katankin: With her achingly pure and expressive voice, and poetic writing rich with imagery, she unflinchingly plumbs the darkest depths of the human condition – wading through despair, loathing, fear, rage, and revenge, and then soaring to its greatest, sun-drenched heights. Not to be missed.
