WHAT better way to bridge the seasonal slump between Christmas and the New Year than an evening of festive fun, stories, music and games at The Poly, Falmouth?

There’s something for everyone in what is bound to be a mirth-driven Salon hosted by local favourites Rebecca Mordan (The Full Bronte) and Shazz Andrews (Dark Women) of Scary Little Girls - described by one critic as ‘the anarchic love child of French and Saunders and Hinge and Bracket’.

Joining them on stage will be Rebecca Hulbert (Eden and Wildworks), John McNeil (Poldark) and rising stars from Before I Wake which played to sell-out audiences at the Gardens of Heligan and the Minack.

According to Rebecca Mordan: “At the climax of this, their centenary year, we wanted to celebrate the story of the suffragettes – what they got up to in politics and in theatres both nationally and right here on our doorstep. As you’d expect from us, we will tell their stories through songs, games, scenes and chat in a salon that will welcome all for feminist frolics!”

Intriguingly, the SLG Salon will take over almost the entire Poly with performances, story-telling and songs on the main stage followed by magic in the Library and a DJ set and mince pies in the bar.

All proceeds will go towards Greenham Women Everywhere, a project to interview and honour the Greenham women being run jointly by SLG and The Heroine Collective.

The merriment starts at 7.30 on Friday, December 28, and tickets are available from the Poly, Falmouth at box office, online or by calling 01326 319461.
