The Man Don't Give a Fuck Preview

We were immensely pleased and proud to host what turned out to be a rocking party for the PV of The Man Don't Give a Fuck on Thursday 26th April... we're really sorry if you missed it!

Thank you to all the people who came despite the dire weather; there were many familiar faces but also a huge contingent from Newport and Cardiff who made the effort to come and support their own.

The evening kicked off with a well-attended peer crit in which Gordon Dalton and Tom Goddard discussed their role as curators of the project; it then progressed into a full-scale celebration fuelled by the excellent sound system mounted on the roof of Richard Higlett's Ford Fiesta in the foyer, with our resident DJ Parallax hunched heroically over his laptop within its dark interior!

There were two great performances during the evening... Tiff Oben's gloriously subtle "Chavette" and Megan Broadmeadow's hilarious "Ewe Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" and despite some of the works having quite edgily explicit themes it was so good to see how completely the audience responded to the warmth and humour in this complex and diverse show

We really can't thank Tom and Gordan enough for organising and curating such a massively successful show and we're looking forward to working with them again in the future.
