I Liked It But ...

Performance that passes the pub test

I Liked It But

This performance is on priority booking for BMEC members until 4pm on Friday 28 January 2022. Click here to learn more about the exciting benefits of becoming a 2022 BMEC member.

This is Joel. Joel is a very serious, very important performance artist. Joel makes very important 'works' about issues that you should definitely care about. Please, please come and see Joel’s very important show.

No-one needs that. I Liked it, But... goes where few 'experimental contemporary immersive performance' works dare to tread… out of the theatre and into the bar to see what passes the 'pub test'.

Grab a drink and enjoy some tunes with Joel and local musicians for a Pub Trivia Night about the craziest, weirdest, most confusing stuff he’s ever had to see on and off of a stage.

Expect very silly stories about very serious people, served with tongue firmly in cheek. Together, we’ll try and work out how stuff even gets made, and why we should care.
