February 16 – After a sell-out performance at Derby Comedy Festival, Marshal B Anderson revives ‘The Time Traveler’s Remorse’ asking where did it really go wrong for the human race?

February 17 – LGBT+ spoken word artist and comedian Dan Webber premiers his new one man show ‘Sweargasm’ examining the little frustrations of every day life.
