People Who Booked Oxfordshire Mind Comedy Gala Also Booked For...

  • Ex-Batts and Broilers

    Thu 2 - Fri 3 Apr

    Two delightful chickens, Gail and Gemma, take you on an egg-citing and cut-throat journey through friendship and chickenhood. Watch them compete for your affections, and vote for your favourite to visit pastures new. A high energy moving story of female friendship and industrial meat farming, told through dark comedy, clown, physical storytelling and live music.

  • Is your happiness not where you expected? Has your self gone AWOL with the life plan? Join Victoria as she sets off on a quest to find a new ‘once upon a time’ after the ‘happy-ever-after’ forgot to show up. With no straight answers and time running out, this big thinking, big hearted show mixes anecdotes, storytelling and physical comedy in a mid-life crisis of no children - now what?...

  • Comedian Adam Buxton reads from his new book which incorporates rambles on topics including formative cultural influences of the 80s, confrontations on trains, boarding school trauma and David Bowie. He may even answer some very BIG questions. To be honest, that’s unlikely but it should be fun anyway.
