Welcome, skip to the content.

This internationally acclaimed trio are coming to town riding a murder ballad of junkyard theatre, visual trickery, dark humour and rag’n’bone live music.

The Ballad of Backbone Joe tells a hilariously daft and gruesome tale of a murder set in a Yarck, in their unique, comedic, Mighty Boosh-esque style.

When they are not performing, operating their own lights and triggering primitive visual effects, the actors morph into musicians, pick up drums, guitar and double bass and rattle off foot-stompin' street blues from side of stage.

So gather at the Yarck Mechanics Institute for a rollicking night of belly laughs and good fun. A night not to be missed.
