Event description
The annual free Bleeding Obvious Christmas Party, plus special guests.

About this Event

CHRISTMAS PARTY TIME! Every year I host a free show in my home-town of Wakefield. 2019 will be no exception, as it'll be a full show with very special and lovely guests I've met throughout the year and maybe some familiar faces too.

There will be spoken word, music, and of course an hour of The Bleeding Obvious with new songs and old favourites, plus special guests....

ALICE NICHOLLS: Genderflux, bisexual woman-person with a lot of instruments, even more sarcasm and a dark sense of humour (and a few happy songs, cause it's Christmas and that.) With a ditty prepared for almost every topical issue facing the modern world, Alice performs poetical, political, personal and profound songs that tell of a life alternatively and joyously lived. Alice's EP of protest songs, KIND QUIET RIOTS, is available now at www.alicenichollsmusic.bandcamp.com/album/kind-quiet-riots

SPROOSE MOOSE: The moniker of singer-songwriter Jamie Hayward. Born in Luton & living in Brid, Sproose Moose mixes elements of folk, punk & indie rock in a rambunctious fashion. Debut single 'One More Drink' out now on all major streaming platforms, and his Christmas song “‘Tis the Season (to be Trollied)” - an alternative ode to the festive period - is out on December 12th.

GENEVIEVE L WALSH: Poet, compere, workshop facilitator, foul-mouthed queer feminist and Aldi Rosé Socialist based in West Yorkshire. They are the founder/host/curator of Spoken Weird and its sister nights Spoken Queered and Weird of Mouth (Halifax), and co-host of Stirred (Manchester). Their debut collection The Dance of a Thousand Losers was published by Flapjack Press in 2017, who will be releasing Walsh's second collection Vitriol Works in 2020. They are currently touring a work in progress version of their new show, A Place in the Shade.

ALEX ASHER: 18 year old performance poet from West Yorkshire. Performing at venues all across Yorkshire, he talks about topical issues such as education and politics as well as more personal subjects on mental health and being transgender. Check out his YouTube channel for more of his work: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNCfBFKRTpROMa8xadeNx1A/

We make a return in our third year to The Red Shed in Wakefield, an historic venue which has seen many, many acts over the years and also serves a rather excellent pint of ale.

Tickets are free but you need to pre-register, and we'll have the customary charity bucket-shake and raffle with a few Bleeding Obvious goodies and some memorabilia thrown in there.

Please note: due to licensing laws this is an 18+ show.

Look forward to seeing you there!
