Annette Curtain’s Big Blow Out, 1st December, 7.30 – 11pm

Kick off the festive season and join Annette Curtain (Tom Marshman) and friends at Ashton Court’s Art’s Mansion on Thursday 1st December.

Your favourite nosy neighbour has ‘borrowed’ the keys to the Mansion for a gossip and a sing-a-long or two. She’ll be picking up some friends from Old Market in the community minibus with songs by Red (the artist formerly known as Carmen Monoxide), speeches by the ghost of Liz Truss, dances by Roseanna and Josh from Impermanence and a bit of rough with Dwayne Pipe. Buffet and pudding tombola provided by Sh*t Quiz, the finest in British tapas.

The event is advised as suitable for those 16+
If you’d like to come to the event but the cost of the cost of a ticket is a barrier, please do get in touch with us at
