Swindon Fringe Festival Opening Night

Swindon Fringe Festival at The Brunel

The Brunel Shopping Centre

Fri 6 April

Swindon Fringe Festival Opening Night

This performance takes place at The Brunel Shopping Centre

Join us for an opening night of live music from Gilmore n' Jaz and Canute's Plastic Army and standup from Tony Cowards as we kick start our biggest and bestest Swinge yet!

Gilmore n’ Jaz: Experienced musicians who make easy listening and unobtrusive Jazz. Specialising in ultra smooth ambient atmospheric music, let them whisk you away to a romantic Italian cafe or a rustic Spanish tapas bar whilst enjoying your complimentary glass of champagne.

Canute's Plastic Army: An acoustic duo consisting of Anish Harrison’s vocals (prev. of the Teddy White Band) and Neil Mercer on guitar (prev. of Rumour Shed and the Dacoits). The band began as a solo project of Neil, who started playing and writing on his own due to depleting band mates. In 2016 Anish and Neil discovered a shared love of dark, twisted songs by artists as disparate as Odetta, Cate Le Bon and Pulp. Anish’s soaring vocals and Neil’s dynamic acoustic guitar was a potent mix. They quickly started writing dark and twisted songs of their own.

Tony Cowards - Punderdog: 'The best joke writer around’ (GQ) returns with his new show, bursting at the seams with glorious gags, preposterous puns and witty one-liners. Punderdog is the follow up to last year’s hilarious Daft Pun, which featured in the Top Jokes of the Edinburgh Fringe for The Scotsman, The Daily Mirror, The Evening Standard and The I newspaper. If you like your comedy fast and furious, daft and silly (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?), then ‘you’ll definitely enjoy this!’ **** (BroadwayBaby.com). ‘A brilliant joke-teller’ (FiveAA.com.au, Adelaide Fringe). After all, everyone loves a punderdog.
