They’ve rocked Glastonbury and The Roundhouse, and gave a sell-out performance at Cheltenham last year. Now Tongue Fu are back by popular demand. Bringing together the sharpest poets, storytellers, comedians and rappers to perform with improvised soundtracks from the genre-hopping Tongue Fu Band, it’s a riotous experiment in live literature, music and improvisation that’s sure to shake up your Saturday night.

Tongue Fu guest poets now announced: Salena Godden, US Slam Champion Buddy Wakefield and Vanessa Kisuule.

It’s poetry, but not as you know it… amazing

Cheltenham Ladies' College, Parabola Arts Centre

Parabola Arts Centre is located in a Grade II listed building in the glamorous Montpellier district of Cheltenham. The centre was built as a facility for students of Cheltenham Ladies’ College and to be used as a public arts centre by the local community.

The original, listed Bayshill House was transformed into a gallery, bar and foyer area. The villa also houses all the rehearsal spaces, offices, video editing suite, dance studio and library. This means that the regular activity of the building takes place in the light, beautifully restored listed building.
