A Bit of A Do: Future Pub

by Small Acts

If you could time travel to the pub of the future what would you like to see? Robot bar staff, instant nostalgia or a new social Inn-vention?

Future Pub draws on interviews with pub-goers, brewers and campaigners to explore the enduring role of pubs in our lives at a time when the future of so many hangs in the balance. Conjuring the territories, atmospheres and eccentricities of a traditional local, the performance incorporates film, music, a pub quiz and of course a time machine to transport audiences to the pub of the future!


“Demand a lock-in! This is one performance party you won’t want to leave”
