Monday 8 July 2019 CAITLIN MORAN: HOW TO BE FAMOUS
Leeds! You’d better be ready for an evening of slightly excessive drinking and a whole lot of truth about camel-toes, #metoo, why the Beatles were secretly girls, the Nineties, sexual shame, pornography, how – exactly – to be famous, and a very long anecdote about the first time Caitlin took Ecstasy – which she seems to remember she took in a way so sensible she can almost imagine Newsround reporting on it approvingly. Don’t miss this chance to join Caitlin Moran as she dives into a hilarious and thought-provoking evening of all things famous and feminist in this laugh-out-loud event. Age guidance 14+.
Tuesday 15 October 2019 RUBY WAX: HOW TO BE HUMAN
Based on her bestselling book, Ruby’s new show How To Be Human answers every question you’ve ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, sex, kids, the future and compassion.
This show is the follow up to Ruby’s sell out shows Sane New World and Frazzled and incorporates what she discovered whilst writing her latest book, including how the mind works with monk Gelong Thubten and learning from neuroscientist Ash Ranpura where everything that makes us ‘us’ can be found in the brain.
Outrageously witty and smart, blending brilliant comedy and insightful life lessons, How To Be Human is the show you need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you’ve upgraded your iPhone. Age Guidance 14+.
