FLOWERFIELD patrons are in for a unique treat on Thursday when the centre welcomes the bluegrass-comedy hybrid The New Rope String Band.

Combining superb musicianship with side-splitting comic genius, the New Rope String Band are truly unique entertainers.

Performing on fiddles, accordion and bass, elements of circus clowning, vaudeville slapstick and sheer inspired silliness are spliced with superb acoustic music as these maniac minstrels deliver everything from Python-esque absurdism to pyrotechnics and live interactive film.

Expect the hilariously unexpected. They carried off the highest accolade it’s possible to win at the Edinburgh Fringe 2012, winning a Herald Angel for their outstanding contribution to the event following a triumphant, seven-night run at The Famous Spiegeltent.

This show is suitable for all ages so bring the family.

“The show is stuffed full of sheer whoopee, inventiveness and endless crowd- pleasing moments,” said one reviewer for Maverick Magazine.

ickets for the show are priced at £12, which includes complimentary interval refreshments, and they’re on sale from reception at Flowerfield Arts Centre. You can also purchase your ticket over the phone using your debit or credit card on (028) 7083 1400.
