Tickle your ear-buds at an evening of poetry, music and comedy! Live Lounge @ the Cottage offers you an evening with a difference and all for a good cause.

Live Lounge @ The Cottage features Harry Baker, World Poetry Slam Champion. His fast-paced poems have heart, blistering wordplay and razor-sharp humour. Harry has appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe in his own 5* show and on Simon Mayo’s Radio 2 Drivetime show. He has also won Haiku Death Matches in the USA, delivered a TED Talk and recently toured the far East and Australia. https://www.facebook.com/harrybakerpoetry/?fref=nf

Supporting Harry are Disco Mister, York’s own legendary duo whose catchy tunes are full of wit and a touch of football mania. They have recently completed their Cool Is Dead European Tour 2016 and released a new single: ‘Magical/Feed the Rich’. https://www.facebook.com/discomister/

Rachael Langtree is a fantastically talented local singer/songwriter from Haxby with a beautiful voice.

Proceeds from ticket sales will go towards Haxby and Wigginton Methodist Church’s Opening New Doors appeal. This building project aims to develop the church premises to make them more accessible and user-friendly for all members of the community. In addition, 10% of money raised from the evening will go to other charities: All We Can, Dementia Forward, York Arc Light, A Rochas International and Livability.
