COVID-19 UPDATE

(Updated 17 March: 11am)

Following yesterday’s announcement from the government we have made the difficult decision to cancel all our shows and workshops this week. We will be contacting all audience members, participants and artists as soon as we can. 

  • You can choose to swap your ticket to a future Strike A Light event- we can credit your customer account and you can then book using this credit in future.
  • You can choose to donate your ticket to Strike A Light we will contribute your donation to our ticket campaign so that in future a child in Gloucester can see a show for free.
  • If you do not want to do any of the options above then we can offer a refund for your ticket.

    To arrange this please contact info@strikealightfestival.org.uk with the name your tickets were booked under, the event name, the number of tickets and what you’d like to do.

Behind the scenes we’re working together with artists, companies & tutors and keeping up to date on the latest guidance. We’ll post updates on our social media. 

Thank you for your support in these unprecedented times.

We believe that with the combined creativity of the Strike A Light family we can find some ingenious ways to keep you entertained over the following months.

Keep in touch & stay safe!

Lots of love from the Strike A Light team 🔥

Autumn 2020 distanced Coming up Events

Jonny Fluffypunk’s ‘The End of the Pier Show’

🗓 Date and time TBC
📍 Gloucester Library, GL1 1HT
🎟 FREE!




Location


Sneak peeks

Is the library ready for Jonny’s unique storytelling style?!


What to expect

Renowned stand-up poet and lo-fi theatremaker Jonny Fluffypunk presents a brand spanking new little show for families, with story, song, poetry, puppetry, and a healthy dose of anarchy.

At the end of a soon-to-be-closed-down pier in a forgotten seaside town, Pierre the pier handyman spends the last weeks as he always does: catching fish for his old bedridden mother and making strange and wonderful things from the rubbish he finds on the beach.

Then who should wash into his life but a homeless mermaid with a spiky attitude and a story to tell! And things aren’t going to be the same again… Can kindness lead to great things? Can a bit less litter make a difference? Can the world’s first human/mermaid rock ‘n’ roll band make big waves?

Age Recommendation: 7+
Duration: 45 minutes


“Acute social observation, intricate humour, surreal fantasy, sharp irony and wit… and England’s most pretentious moustache”
The Independent on Jonny Fluffypunk
