Their 1990s club nights (Yardbird Suite/The Cooker/Casa Latina) at the Underground Club were EPIC. Almost 20 years after the crew split, original members Gip Dammone and Lubi Jovanovic reunite to present a monthly session of live music, good food the finest recorded sounds past and present.

An Evening With Don Letts

The Old Woollen, Sunny Bank Mills, 83-85 Town Street Farsley, Leeds, LS28 5UJ

Ticket sales currently paused to allow for social distancing. If government restrictions lift, a further ticket allocation will be made.

Don Letts – filmmaker, musician, DJ, broadcaster, social commentator, husband and father – has always defied conformity. A British-born son of Windrush parents, he seamlessly pivoted between London’s punk and reggae scenes, earning his reputation as the ‘Rebel Dread’.

In "There and Black Again" (published by Omnibus Press) Don looks back on an exceptional life, and tells tales of him befriending Bob Marley after sneaking into his hotel, joining The Clash’s White Riot tour as manager of The Slits, and becoming one of the UK’s most highly regarded video directors during the MTV boom.

With reflections on Black Lives Matter and the highs and lows of personal relationships, "There and Black Again" includes moments of civil unrest, live music, humour and political struggle.

666 Comments

The Constitutional, 51 Town Street, Farsley, Leeds, LS28 5HX

£12 + Booking Fee. Doors 7pm. Show 8pm.

One internet thread. Two actors. 666 Comments

In October 2010 cartoonist Gabby Schulz posted a comic strip on his website. It was about online sexism. What could possibly go wrong?

Over the next three days the comic went viral and the comments went bananas. Some of them were witty, some of them were outrageous, some of them were just plain bizarre. 666 Comments is an attempt to stage that comment thread. Hilarious, provocative and occasionally plain terrifying, 666 Comments brings the virtual world into astonishingly vivid reality.

Gyles Brandreth

The Old Woollen, Sunny Bank Mills, 83-85 Town Street, Farsley, Leeds, LS28 5UJ

£22.50 + Booking Fee. Doors 7pm. Show Starts 8pm.

His last one-man show was a 5-Star total sell out when it opened at the Edinburgh Fringe. At the Old Woollen in October you can expect to find Brandreth entertainingly unleashed on the people he’s known and the places he’s been. Without hesitation or repetition (and just a touch of deviation), Just a Minute star Gyles delivers a dazzling evening of wit, wisdom, nostalgia and riotous name-dropping. Gyles will be signing copies of the book, which will be available to buy at the event.
