This one’s for the fans.
This ones for you.

Our award-winning gig theatre show is back in 2018.

Based on people’s love affair with music, FANS is an electric mix of stories told through raucous live music, new writing & verbatim theatre. It’s loud gig theatre. Full of emotion, humour & musical pulse. It’s a show for anyone who’s ever loved music.

Feat. real fan confessions from music fans across the UK. Crammed full of favourite tunes, original music & a cast or top musicians / performers. It’s a heart-warming tribute to music lovers.
