“The Lightning Path | Llwybr Mellt echoes the company’s strong ecological ethos with a journey across the continents from pole to desert…The action blends the range of possibilities of puppetry … is witty, colourful and compact.” Adam Somerset, Theatre in Wales April 2016

“Lighting Path is fabulous and engaging”
‘Roedd y plant yn canolbwyntio yr holl amser ac fe ddysgon nhw lawer’
“It made us think as a family about things we can do to make a difference to climate change”



movement practitioner: Maura Hazelden
artist filmmaker: Jacob Whittaker

4pm – 10.15pm

This six hour, performative event explores how liminal space is created, experienced and shared, using repetitions of a phrase of movement and a 13th century song developed by Lou Laurens. Untitled 10 will use 9 years of time layered recordings and add to the evolving soundscape by recording this year’s acoustics. Come to observe, to be present within the space created. Use the space for mediation, prayer, contemplation. People who use movement as contemplation or prayer may wish to move rather than sit.

A message from Jonny & the Baptists to us all in Cardigan!



This performance is the full-length show! The first set is about 35 mins and is followed by a 15 min interval (to refresh your glasses and stretch your legs). The second set is the full ‘story’ 60 mins long


Three quarters of MPs are millionaires. A third of the country lives below the poverty line. Whatever your politics, Jonny & the Baptists think it’s worth talking about.

A riotously funny epic about friendship, inequality and betrayal from the multi-award-nominated musical comedians.

Setting out to explore the gap between rich and poor, Jonny & the Baptists’ lives turn upside down when Jonny betrays Paddy for financial gain. As Jonny enjoys the highlife with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Jerry Hall, Paddy falls into homelessness and despair.

From frontman Jonny Donahoe, Drama Desk Award nominated star and co-writer of international hit Every Brilliant Thing.
