Living Spit are delighted to bring you 'the alternative' Christmas show this festive season!
Hard hearted Ebenezer Scrooge hates the season of goodwill until a visit from three spirits one Christmas Eve makes him rethink his... blah blah blah.
We all know the story. We’ve all seen the film(s). But who’s the best Scrooge of all time? Albert Finney? Alistair Sim? Patrick Stewart? Well, just hold your horses there! Because you’ve yet to witness Bristol actor Craig Edwards’ take on Dickens’ mean miserabilist.
He waits, like a coiled spring, ready to bring his unique brand of Midlands malcontentment to the role. And he’s brought Clevedon’s finest, Stu Mcloughlin, along for the ride to play (almost literally) all the other parts!
Hilarious, tender, idiotic and musically virtuosic by turns, Living Spit’s two-man adaptation of A Christmas Carol promises a feast of festive foolery that’ll have you splitting your sprouts with laughter, or your money back!*
*only joking about the “money back” bit!!
"Christmas tradition laced with really, really good comedy."
“The jokes are brilliantly bad, the songs are wonderful and all in all the whole performance is hilarious. Its proper fun for all the family, which is exactly what you want at Christmas.“
Parental Guidance; Suitable for ages 10 years + due to occasional bad language and regular terrible puns!

Megan McCubbin Stopping extinction - an atlas of endangered species
What does it take to save a species from extinction? Is it determination, luck, optimism, jurassic-park-style
science... or just hard work? Well, in truth, its a combination of them all.
We are so lucky to share our planet with so many spellbinding species - from sharks that use electromagnetic fields to hunt, sloths that have a unique endemic ecosystem on their backs and the giant ecosystem engineers that are rhinos. Each animal plays an important part in the delicate web of life, but today, that web is under threat from execrated extinctions caused by humans. Biodiversity loss cannot be
understated - but hope is not lost...Around the world there are scientists, rangers and indigenous communities fighting to protect wildlife and their habitats.
In this show, we will hear to stories from the front line of conservation and find out what it takes to pull a species back from the brink, from parrot sperm helmets to embryo freezing and everything in between! All the whileanswering the big questions...
“I'm only one person, what can I do to make a difference?"
