1 in 6 people suffer from hearing loss.

2 of those people are Ray’s parents.

Full of hilarious, revealing tales about growing up with deaf parents, Deaf Comedy Fam presents a very first for comedy, as each show will be performed by Ray simultaneously in both spoken English and British Sign Language – which just so happens to be Ray’s first language.

Two-time Scottish Comedian of the Year finalist Bradshaw debuted Deaf Comedy Fam at Glasgow International Comedy Festival before moving to the Edinburgh Fringe for a critically acclaimed, sold out run – don’t miss the first ever comedy set to be spoken and signed by the comic themselves!

Adelaide Fringe Weekly Innovation Award 2018.

'A Theatr Mwldan Production'.

This sublime, critically acclaimed and multi award-winning collaboration between two adventurous virtuoso musicians - Welsh harpist Catrin Finch and Senegalese kora player Seckou Keita - delivers a stunning exhibition of world-class musicianship.

Drawing deep on their own diverse traditions and transforming them with remarkable synergy, Catrin and Seckou have built a formidable reputation for extraordinary performances. Following the huge success of their debut release, their long-awaited second album 'SOAR' released in April 2018. The album takes flight on the wings of the osprey, the magnificent bird of prey recently returned to Wales after centuries of absence, which makes its annual 3,000-mile migration from the coasts of West Africa to the estuaries of Wales, soaring like music and dreams over man-made borders, on its innate and epic journey of endurance.

Entrancing, mesmeric, intricate and ethereal, this is remarkable music and a thrilling live experience.
