Wednesday 21st February, 7.45pm, The Hawth Studio Crawley
The LYNNeS are Canadian heartbreak poets Lynn Miles and Lynne Hanson. The two songwriters are not new to working together, having toured and written songs off and on over the past 10 years, and with Miles having produced two of Hanson’s albums (River of Sand, 2014 and 7 Deadly Spins, 2015).
Lynn Miles is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters. With 14 albums to her credit, the winner of multiple Canadian Folk Music awards (2011 English Songwriter of the Year), and a 2003 Juno award for Roots and Traditional Solo Album of the Year, she creates music with unbridled feeling and vulnerability.
Lynne Hanson mixes gritty ballads with driving blues-tinged roots rock. She’s released 6 albums, and toured widely with her band The Good Intentions as well as in support of Grammy-nominated songwriters (Gretchen Peters and Steve Forbert) and Albert Lee. Her sound is born honestly through a lifetime of experience and influence, expressed through the rock, blues and roots that bleeds from her very being.
Fusing tight vocal harmonies with hauntingly gritty lyrics and humour. The two witty songwriters play off each other live, and have been known to leave the audience in stitches with their between-song-banter.
The LYNNeS are two very strong women with something significant to say. And we think you’re going to want to have a listen!

THE M.M.O.R.P.G. SHOW
Tuesday 27th February 7.45pm, The Hawth Studio Crawley
The M.M.O.R.P.G Show (Massively Multi Player On-stage Role Play Game… with jokes)
A crowd gathers, no doubt they hear I seek a champion…
From the makers of Knightmare Live comes The M.M.O.R.P.G show (Spirit of the Festival winners VAULT 2016/Outstanding Contribution Winners VAULT 2017), in The Hawth Studio on Tuesday 27th February.
In the world of M.M.O.R.P.G characters get into combat, discussions, negotiations and potential
betrayal. Combining improvised comedy with table-top gaming come along and experience this epic, sprawling, open world, entirely made up, fantasy quest of the audiences own devising. Also included: great jokes about wizards and elves.
The core of the show sees three volunteers take on the roles of a thief, a warrior and a trigger happy trainee wizard who play through one of several narratives. Within the game they make decisions for their characters and attempt actions. Every choice has a consequence, every success decided by a large D20… (20 sided die).
The format is based upon the table top fantasy role play games (Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder) invented in the 70’s and currently enjoying a resurgence. This show is for everyone, people who love games and those who have a penchant for Game of Thrones.
Will you be victorious? Will you bring harmony to the kingdom or will you betray your new friends
for personal glory?
“I very much recommend you seek this out” James McMahon (Kerrang!)
