It is with much sadness that we have taken the decision to postpone our literature festival. Given current conditions and advice, we want to ensure that all our audiences, authors, volunteers and staff remain as healthy as possible and we feel it is our duty and responsibility to protect others by not proceeding with our events at this time.

We are currently investigating options for rescheduling events and ask that you bear with us in the meantime whilst we talk with different venues and authors. We are also in talks with our box office - run externally - and appreciate your patience whilst we finalise information for those who have purchased tickets for events due to take place at the end of March. We will keep you informed as soon as we have further information.

Thank you all for your continued support - as a charity we rely so much on income from our audiences and sponsors to keep running and hope that, however uncertain the future is at present, we can continue to bring high-quality, inspiring multi-arts experiences to the Midlands.

Young Critics Review 2019 – Moon Comedy Duo (by George Wiggin)

Moon Comedy Duo

The Moon Duo are a great comedy Duo incorporating dark humour, with witty sketches showing both Jack and Joshua’s comedic ingenuity such as the seamless transitions between the sketches. However their sketches didn’t leave me in stitches – whether this is an age thing for me as I’m only 14, it just didn’t leave me laughing. Yes there were points that made me laugh such as their sketch on a monopoly town which was very funny with hilarious accents. This is one of the Duo’s talents. They also used a continuous gag throughout the show using it in quirky ways linking sketches together.

The Duo really created an immersive experience for the audience from subtle eye contact to small areas of sketches with audience input.

I didn’t know what to expect from this duo however they surprised me, for the better they truly are rising stars within the comedy circuit and if you ever get the chance to see them I would. It may allow you to appreciate a whole new area of comedy.

They have upcoming shows in both Canterbury and Kentish Town London. For an unexpected evening out, experiencing something a bit different, why not just give them a shot because they both have some significant talents which they weave into their sketches with ease. Why miss the Moon comedy duo.
