Benny Boot has been performing on the UK stand-up comedy circuit for 6 years. He is considered by many comedians as a wonderful stand-up artist to watch. Boot delivers his jokes in a unique style on a variety of strange topics. His engaging persona and material keeps the laughter rolling through the entire show and is guaranteed to bring any audience undone.
'He's got a keen instinct for the joke, an imaginative turn of phrase and an ability to find an offbeat angle to whatever he chooses to talk about' (Chortle)
'... an arsenal of consistently brilliant gags' (The Guardian).

Dubbed the "Magical Bones" Richard Essien is considered to be the most exciting talent to have emerged from the magic industry in recent years. Born and raised in South East London, the magician and dancer began his career as a professional hip hop dancer. An exceptionally skilled break-dancer and a gifted showman, Richard now focuses primarily on magic. He has combined his love of hip hop culture with his passion for the art of magic to create a unique blend of innovative magic which he describes as a "soulful experience of astonishment".

We Used to Make Things are a Hackney-based eight piece Indie-Pop band combining their own original mix of The Specials horn section; The Kinks’ worldview; The Beatles’ hooks; The Beach Boys’ harmonies; Divine Comedy’s wit and Elbow’s grandeur. They chose a name that hints at both the disillusionment within post-industrial Britain but also more personally at the danger - as adults - of losing the ability to play, make mistakes, be creative and ultimately, make things.
