“All change,” said a very wise man, once upon a time, at a tube station somewhere. And he was right. If underpants, organ transplants and Doctor Whos have taught us anything, it’s that change is inevitable – vital, in fact. To sum up…

“Different” is this year’s “The Same”

That’s why Grand Theft Impro is changing. This Autumn we’ll be back at The Wheatsheaf, but on the third Friday of every month. And, in addition to a set from GTI, there will be guest groups.

We have some terrific acts lined up beginning, on Oct. 21 with…

  • FREE ASSOCIATION Harold team, THE WILSONS: featuring some, or all, of… MARIAM HAQUE IAN THOMAS DAY SHAMUS MAXWELL JON BROKE SHAUN LOWTHIAN SOPHIA BROIDO CHRIS GAU & KATHARINE BENNETT-FOX.

  • RIPE GUFF: featuring DAVID REED AND PAUL FOXCROFT.
