Lunchtime concerts

Our lunchtime concerts at the Riverfront, Newport are back! When we programme these concerts, rather than using established groups, the ensembles are put together from scratch, so they don’t come ready rehearsed. The players have to use the intensive rehearsal process to navigate their way through the stylistic and musical decisions as a collective – a valuable skill for young musicians to develop. For the audience, it means the concerts are completely fresh.

On a grey, foggy morning outside a large Polish city, Zhenia (Alec Utgoff), a masseur from the East, enters the lives of the wealthy residents of a gated community. Using hypnotic, almost magical techniques to get a residence permit, he starts working. The well-to-do residents in their ideal homes seemingly have it all, but they all suffer from an inner sadness, some unexplained longing. The attractive and mysterious newcomer's hands heal, and Zhenia's eyes seem to penetrate their souls. To them, his Russian accent sounds like a song from the past, a memory of their seemingly safer childhoods.

The latest from writer/director Malgorzata Szumowska (Elles, In the Name Of) and her longtime collaborator Michal Englert is an unclassifiable meditation on class, immigration, and global warming with touches of magical realism and moments of sober beauty and subtle humour.

The journey of parenthood is a magical and maddening one so what better way to cope with it than through stand up comedy! AFTERMIRTH is an adult comedy club that you can bring your baby to.

Each week we’ll have 3 top circuit comedians delivering their usual club routines so the material is mature and sweary with the odd birth story flash back.... The only difference is it’s during the day. Babies under 18 months are welcome, but please don’t bring older toddlers because they tend to heckle!

This special afternoon gig has reduced amplification and a dimmed room so no one will notice those red eyes from sleepless nights. You’re encouraged to bottle, breast or Haribo feed and you can walk about or shake Mittens the Special Rabbit in order to soothe your offspring and no one will moan or mutter if your little one cries or screams.

There’s snacks and drinks available in the cafe too so treat yourself to cake and a Prosecco, you deserve it!

The gig is also open to parents, Aunts, Uncles, Grans, carers, in fact anyone who needs some afternoon comedy and doesn’t mind some cute babies in attendance.

There’s limited space, ditch the buggy and bring a sling if you can.

MIKE BUBBINS: Throwback SHOW POSTPONED NEW DATE TO BE CONFIRMED

Saturday 19th March 2022 at 8pm - this show has been postponed, a new date is being discussed so customers can transfer their tickets or receive a refund

Tickets - £21

Mike Bubbins, star of hit podcast The Socially Distant Sports Bar, and of BBC television comedies Mammoth, Tourist Trap and The Unexplainers, unleashes THROWBACK, his first ever solo UK stand-up tour. And things may never be the same again.

THROWBACK is a powerful, thought-provoking, visceral hour of stand-up comedy, that pushes boundaries, defies neat descriptions and challenges the audience... 

AS IF IT IS! 

It’s actually an hour and a half of really funny stories, pretty impressive characterisations, possibly a song (he said he’ll see how that goes), a bit of nostalgia about the good old days, a bit of optimism about the good new days, and Mike generally having a laugh about life and not taking himself, or anything else, too seriously. Having said that, he may, at some point in the show, get very annoyed at berks, whether in the past, the present, or the future. Very annoyed.

So basically THROWBACK is a comedy show about Bubbins sharing, and bringing to life, the stuff that he finds funny. As comedy concepts go, it’s a pretty straightforward one, really.

‘They asked me to do a UK comedy tour, called THROWBACK...and so I did.’  Mike Bubbins
