Having garnered rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival last year, the highly acclaimed Mental is now on tour and returns to Bristol this month. This unique play by the multi-talented Kane Power and his mother Kim is an in-depth exploration into living with mental illness. Using soundscapes, original music and songs, he weaves an unconventional one-man show into a sensitive and thought-provoking essay on the effects of mental illness on the individual and also on those around them. Using his relationship with his mother, who lives with bipolar disorder, as a central narrative focus, Mental is an important contribution to the discussion about mental illness and in Kane’s own words “if it’s about the mind, somehow it’s about the heart, the soul, and about humans being.” With a conversational style, musical outbreaks and a grid that charts the emotional fluctuations, the show has been praised for its sensitive approach to its subject matter and hopes to help break the stigma attached to mental illness.

Barenaked Ladies bring their worldwide tour in support of their new, twelfth studio album Fake Nudes to Bristol's Colston Hall on 24th April.
This musical follows the story of a group of 16-year-old girls who are all bound by an obsession with ‘the band’, an obsession that continues into adulthood. Twenty five years on, these friends are reunited and hope to fulfil their lifelong dream to meet their musical idols.
Boasting a record-breaking £10 million at box office already, The Band is now the UK’s fastest selling tour in history and its easy to see why; it features a soundtrack by Take That, the UK’s most successful boy band of all time and a cast made up of the winners from the BBC’s hugely popular talent show Let It Shine. For anyone who ever loved a band, especially if that band was Take That.
