    Pottering amongst the seeds and cuttings at the back of his ramshackle greenhouse in the garden of a Gloucestershire manor house is Herbert Pinnegar. Now in his twilight years, he is full of memories and tales of a bygone era. In between potting up and potting on, he recounts his journey from orphan boy to legendary head gardener 'Old Herbaceous' and tells of his friendship with the lady of the house, Mrs.Charteris.

    Sown with seeds of gardening wisdom, this charming one man show is a love story – a humorous portrayal of a single-minded yet gentle man with a passion for plants.

    Saskia Griffiths-Moore is a London based singer-songwriter that has been performing at folk clubs, theatres and festivals worldwide.

    She is endorsed by Agnew Instruments and JWC Guitars, and has completed her second recording at Abbey Road Studios. Her music has been featured on Sky TV, London Live, BBC Radio Scotland, Wales and more, she was awarded multiple grants from Arts Council England and has received glowing four and five star reviews from Maverick and RnR magazine respectively.

    ***** "The sound of a major artist" RnR
    **** "Expertly crafted and expertly played" Maverick

    ​Saskia started her career as Craniosacral therapist on Harley Street until her performing career took off. She has toured through the United Kingdom and across Europe including Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, and Denmark.

    On the 50th anniversary of Woodstock festival, 2019, Saskia recorded and released a commemorative album of folk music called 'Baez, Dylan and Me', featuring songs by Bob Dylan and Joan Baez that are evocative of that time period.

    Accompanying Saskia at Abbey Road Studios were; Kit Hawes on Mandolin and guitar, Thomas Holder on double bass, and Joseph O'Keefe on Violin. The project was sponsored by JWC Guitars. She returned in December 2019 with a 40 person choir behind her and a string quartet to record the single 'For You'.

    "Rising star of the UK folk scene" Music republic magazine

    Recently a transatlantic record deal has been struck between Saskia and The Susanne Marcus Collins Foundation Inc. (US), and they are now working together on "creating quality acoustic music mirroring the style and capturing the energy of the great legacy folk artists." See full article here.

    Instead of touring America, Canada, Europe and the UK this year, 2020 will see Saskia releasing her new album 'Are You Listening' on July 31st, and she is heading to Abbey Road Studios for the third time to record. She will also be completing a series of 'safe summer' concerts in August, and plans to raise money for charity later in the year, building towards touring again in 2021.

    It’s a busy night at Frankie’s Chippy, as always.  From lasses heading out on the town, to those just passing through and the regulars who have been coming here for years. But when reports start coming in of a little girl gone missing, the community must pull together to find her before it’s too late.

    Will they see what was under their noses all along?

    With two performers playing all the different characters who come through the doors, Haddock and Chips will be a whistle stop tour of Whitley Bay’s finest folk.  Funny and heart-warming, this is a timely play about community and how, in the hardest of times, we can find hope in humanity.

    During a show of live cooking and laugh-out-loud comedy George demonstrates how to cook with an engine, get the most from the car battery and even utilise the air-conditioning. He’ll demonstrate ways to procure items from the train snack trolley, beat the rip-off restaurant prices at the airport and show how to turn unexpected road-works into a picnic. It’s cheeky, anarchic and creative, a multisensory show rich in humour and sprinkled with handy hacks. Three plates of gourmet food cooked live in the most unconventional ways and with the opportunity to taste the results at the end, provided you can stop laughing.
