Must See Mondays – Events of the Week

9th March 2015



What: Time Busters: The 26 Hours 365 Seconds Improv Marathon // Where: Bristol Improv Theatre // When: Fri 13th – Sat 14th March (8-10pm) // Cost: £25 for all 26 hours or £5 for a 2 hour episode (all tickets half price if you’ve already purchased a ticket for the previous show)

Unplanned, unscripted and unconventional: Brand new for The Bristol Improv Theatre Festival 2015, Closer Each Day (the team behind The Wardrobe Theatre’s infamous and long-running improvised soap opera and stars of the venue’s popular alternative Christmas shows Muppits Die Hard, Se7en Dwarfs and Oedipuss In Boots), in association with The Bristol Improv Theatre, is proud to present ‘The 26 Hours 385 Seconds Improv Marathon’.

Beginning at 8pm on Friday 13th March and running through the night and into the day until 10pm on Saturday 14th March, an experienced team of Bristol-based actors and improvisers will be joined by the cream of Britain’s improv theatre community to perform a non-stop improvised theatre play. Audiences are invited to attend for the entire 26 hours or drop-in for one of the 13 two-hour episodes with half-price tickets if you decide to stay for the following episode. It’s going to be a dangerous, masochistic improvising bonanza where anything can (and probably will) happen!

Ever wanted your very own robot? Make it buzz, shine, move and more?

Learn how to build a robot using Raspberry Pi mini computers. These Bristol designed and built kit robots are a fun way to play with new technologies with the people from the Bristol Robotics Laboratory – you’re only limited by your imagination!

If you would like to take your robot home, you can buy a basic Build-a-Bot kit from the the day’s workshop for £38 (payable by cash or cheque). There are also extras you can buy on the day (such as the Raspberry Pi) if you would like to.
