Last year, multi-award-nominated musical-comedy-silly-arses Jonny and the Baptists made a new show about love and their friendship. After a critically acclaimed Edinburgh run, they toured the show to more than thirty cities and towns across the UK. They were about to do another run of tour dates when suddenly it became impossible to leave the house and travel around, unless you’re friends with the Prime Minister (we’re not).

So we’re taking the show virtually on the road.

In partnership with some of our very favourite arts centres, theatres and comedy clubs, we’ll be performing the show two metres apart from each other, live from the downstairs room in our (currently shut) local pub. Each show will be performed as if from a different city and venue, via the power of live streaming. We’ll be ‘visiting’ the Old Fire Station in Oxford, The Stand Comedy Clubs, Pound Arts in Corsham, Kings Place in London, MAC in Birmingham, The Lowry in Salford, South Street in Reading and more to be announced.

Even if we can’t actually go there, we can still support our favourite venue’s staff, friends and local audience with a specific version of our touring show.

Access

Patrons with a disability are eligible for one free companion ticket with their booking. To book this, contact the ticket office: tickets@oldfirestation.org.uk or 01865 263990.

There are two entrances to the Old Fire Station: 40 George Street via the foyer, and on Gloucester Green via the shop. Both are step-free. If you are coming to a show, we ask that you use the George Street entrance, as the Gloucester Green entrance is not always open.

There is level entry to the foyer of the Old Fire Station, and step-free access to the main Theatre (where most shows take place) and Studio space via lift. All spaces in the building are wheelchair-accessible via lift apart from the Theatre balcony and the Loft. If an event is in the Loft, this will be clearly stated on the event’s web page.

If you are a wheelchair user attending a sit-down show, space will be reserved for you. If you are attending a standing gig, please contact us (call Alex on 01865 263980 or e-mail tickets@oldfirestation.org.uk) and we will talk with you about your needs.

There are six steps leading up to the Loft space. If you would like to discuss hire of the space, or any of the events taking place in the Loft, please get in touch.

We try to programme as much accessible work as we can.
