May 10th &11th

Sophie Reid brings you some of her delightful songs, poems and storytelling…
Sophie is a Brighton born & bred actor, musician, poet and storyteller. She has toured with Sting, been recognised by Screen International as a ‘Star of Tomorrow’ and can be seen as that crazy stalker girl in Disney’s live motion feature ‘Beauty & The Beast’. Her work interweaves spoken word, song and storytelling into ethereal and whimsical flows. Sophie takes inspiration from Greek myths, loves a play on words and looks to find light in the dark. @iamsophiereid
Adult themes, so 18+

*****Edinburgh Evening News
‘Jane Bom-Bane is either a genius or an example of care in the community gone wrong. Gloriously eccentric. Hugely entertaining songs and stories. Unmissable.’
