Pay What You Want: This year our shows in venues are ticketed, so you should book a ticket to guarantee entry - this is because of restricted capacities, COVID restrictions, and so we can keep you as safe as possible. Pay What You Want means you donate to a show in advanced for this ticket and you know you can get in. You can still turn up at the venue for free, and donate at the end of the show - but we recommend getting tickets this year to make sure you get in.

ASHES to MASHES is the continuing story of PD's perpetually interrupted life. ADHD can take the fall for many of the twists and turns, but fate has to take its share of responsibility, too. In this dark chapter of a trilogy of shows, PD examines death and addiction with a huge dollop of cheek. This funny and insightful story is set against the backdrop of songs by artists as disparate as Bowie and Motorhead, The Prodigy and The Who. All are played with an acid-jazz/funky twist and there's a few of PD's own work in there, too. The show promises to be an emotional rollercoaster ...
