The Unbearable Lightness of the Bright Pink Orchid

The dishwasher in the corner of the office has a sign on it that reads ‘empty, please fill me’ - Cress feels closer to that than anyone else on the ‘team’, - even when they give her a barbie pink orchid as a well-intentioned parting gift. An hour of stand-up comedy with up and coming comedian Cressida Wetton.

“Captivating presence, great response” - The Stand.

Cressida has appeared on BBC Radio 4 Extra and numerous shows at the Edinburgh Fringe including ‘Small Town Fools” – a show about provincial life in Gloucestershire, one of her favourite topics. She is from the West Country, but escaped in 2014 and is now able to joke about meat raffles, recreational drugs and other countryside pursuits at a safe distance. She has a unique slant on small town mentality and her hilarious observations of family life, and the characters she met in her previous office job, will seduce any audience, no matter where they are from.

Ticket types this year are Paid, Pay What You Can and Free - this is how it works: Paid: The show is fully ticketed and you pay in advance or on the door; Pay What You Can: You can choose to buy a ticket in advanced to guarantee entry and what to pay over a minimum amount OR turn up at the venue to get in for free in any space that is left; Free: The show is free entry and can be ticketed or unticketed. Watch the show, and the performer will ask for donations at the end for those that would like to contribute.
