VIV GORDON  - Viv is a performance artist & arts and mental health campaigner, who has written and created two shows both of which are touring in 2017.  I Am Joan is an autobiographical hopeful comedy about trauma recovery. PreScribed (a life written for me) explores the side effects of being a GP in the 21st Century. 



REUBEN LOVETT - Reuben’s folk rock refuses to be put in a box. Brash guitar play reminiscent of punk paying homage to jazz, poetic lyrics rising and falling with discordant angst, and foot tapping rhythms that captivate and endure.
