The Witching Way

October 31, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - November 1, 2019 @ 8:30 pm

£11 – £13

After trying to be somebody she’s not amidst the perils of peer pressure, W (our teen witch protagonist) is transported to a cottage in a strange landscape.

In order to find her way home she must embark on a quest to reckon with her history, overcome extraordinary obstacles, and ultimately find her voice.

With music genres spanning folk, blues, punk and drone rock, The Witching Way is a concept album delivered by a live band with animated visuals. Part-fable, part-coming-of-age story, part-gig, this DIY rock opera is a rallying cry for the weird and wonderful among us.
