Just 3 weeks away from the Wandsworth Arts Fringe 2016

Week 2 of our Wandsworth Arts Festival performers guesting in the studio.

On Monday afternoon, Ian Barclay welcomes Andrew Silverwood, Artistic Director of Fragility Theatre who are taking over the Cat’s Back for the duration on the festival.  Spotlight on Tuesday evening has the creators of “Beery” in with them.  The Treblemakers visit Lexie Carducci on Thursday morning.  We hope they are going to give us a blast of their beautiful accapella close harmony singing while they’re with her.  The Fabularium are on tour at the moment with their show Reynard The Fox.  They are heading down our way though in time for the Festival.  Shane Bright gets them on the phone on Thursday afternoon so we can get a taste of this family outdoor show.

And of course, our nightly ArtsWatch airs 6.45pm after the news…here’s our gorgeous schedule for next week!
