Saturday 4 June, 2pm LYNGO THEATRE COMPANY presents... THE FISH'S WISHES

THE Fish's Wishes was adapted from the Italian show 'Il Pescolino Nel Biccheire' by Marcello Chiarenza with original music and songs by Carlo Capelli

'SplatterFest', is Merseyside's first festival of theatre for children, featuring a selection of the best performances and performers from inside and outside the UK. The festival is based at Liverpool's Unity Theatre but the children of Southport can enjoy one of the shows at Southport Arts Centre on Saturday 4 June at 2pm.

'The Fish's Wishes' is a delightful show for children aged 3 and older that has been adapted from the original Italian show 'Il Pescolino Nel Bichhiere', first produced by Teatro Groggia in Venice.

A little fish who lives in a glass of water nearly gets caught by the cat but escapes into an airy world where he's never been before. Everything is new to him...

Why is the sky blue? 

The sea?

What's in the middle of the earth? 

The children are invited to tell the little fish about 'up' and 'down' and meet the Hoover-fish and drink stars from a bowl. 

SplatterFest is a collaboration between Unity Theatre, Splatterdays Activities, Southport Arts Centre, Liverpool John Moores University - Drama Department, Hope Street Ltd and Merseyside Dance Initiatve. Log onto the Unity website or phone 0151 709 4988 for further details of the festival.

Tickets:- £5 adults / £4 children and other concessions.   Box Office:- 01704 540011

Unsigned, Sealed, Delivered at LIPA

THE Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts is showcasing its graduating musical talent in a series of gigs between 3 June and 14 June, before they head off to make it in the music profession. This mini music festival is called Unsigned, Sealed, Delivered as some of the acts are unsigned, some are sealed (just waiting to get released) and some have already delivered their debut albums.

All gigs are open to the general public, with tickets costing just £4. Each night there are up to 4 acts - all having at least 30 minutes to make their impression. Music industry movers and shakers have also been invited to attend.

Blues, soul, electronic DnB, country pop, jazz, funk, mainstream pop, alternative classical, nu-metal, goth rock and pure rock - all these styles and more are on offer over the 9 nights of performances by 27 different acts.

These include performances by singer songwriter Sarah Dickson, who is currently getting UK airplay and was a finalist in the national Music Benevolent Fund Awards for Song in 2004 and Morgan4, who have recently released their debut album Utopia on Native records. BBC Manchester has described them as "They've thrown together influences varying from Radiohead to Jeff Buckley to Miles Davies and the result is great. They've managed that rare trick of achieving a 'pop' sound without massively compromising what makes them unique…"

The festival ends on Tuesday 14 June with Big Jim's tribute to Rage against the Machine. Big Jim being Jim Wilson who is also a member of up and coming band Multi-Purpose Chemical described as 'Liverpool's most entertaining live band' (by '').
