Buffo’s Wake are a twelve-legged beast hatched in the murky backwater of Brighton, UK. Armed with accordions, violins and a bucket full of gusto they waltz, tango, mosh and kolo their way through various influences from Eastern European, Balkan and Russian folk, to punk rock and cabaret, telling tales of debauchery, deformity, zombies, incest and anatomy and making the audience dance into the night in the process.
Well known comedian Andrew O’Neil, star of Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and lead guitarist from TMTWNBBFN will be joining us centre stage with his Black Magic Fun Hour on Friday 1st June 2018.
Please welcome The Old Time Rags to A Splendid Day Out. With their folky, skiffley, street sounds they’re sure to get your toes tapping.
