London Shuffle Club at Shoreditch

The UK’s shuffleboard experts have setup a new permanent home in Shoreditch​. The venue is a colourful space featuring the UK’s first ever open-air shuffleboard terrace and will focus on the classic floor shuffleboard version of the game. 👭 👬

Mouthwatering guest ales and cocktails on rotation and live music complement the most fun, addictive and socially competitive way to spend your days and nights.

Like challenging your friends? Love a drink and enjoy social eats? Then you need shuffleboard in your life…

It’s a hot and popular nightlife trend in places like Brooklyn which originated on the decks of cruise ships in the early 20th century. The easy-to-pick-up, difficult-to-master art of the game is to use your hand (for table top games) or a cue stick (for classic, floor based shuffle) to slide your weighted pucks or ‘biscuits’ down a long, smooth wooden board and onto the top sections of a scoring triangle at the opposite end of your lane.

London Shuffle​ features alley-style lanes with an all new look that is effortlessly fresh and modern. The new 7,000 sq ft venue also offers the first ever open-air shuffleboard lanes on the outside terrace. Outside, you will also find a stylish Airstream offering a carefully curated selection of craft ales, while inside, an easy-to-drink selection of beers will keep you well watered.

For those who want to treat themselves; delicious long, short and slushy cocktails will all be on offer to add to the experience (and challenge of the game!) while tasty pizzas featuring a range of adventurous toppings will also be available to keep you well fuelled for the fun!

Cat and Mouse @ Village Underground / Thursday 8th and Friday 9th June 2017

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: 7pm-8:45pm

@ Village Underground, 4 Holywell Lane, London EC2A 3PQ

Tickets: £13.20 book online

www.villageunderground.co.uk/events/cat-mouse

A theatrical animation experience, involving an animated cat and mouse and a band of dogs. Expect: live music, theatrical devices, crazy cartoons, high octane action, fun and frolics, extreme violence, moments of edification, sadomasochism, the face machine, skeletons, dogs, dancing, and more! 🐱🐭

Featuring the the animations of Paul Bill Barritt (1927) with live music by Officer Pup, courtesy of composer and Edinburgh Fringe winner, Laurence Owen and band plus, we introduce Miss Lesley Ewen as The Law.

The cultural history of anthropomorphised animals is long and deep, as long and deep as the river of imagination itself. We see ourselves reflected back at ourselves within those furry beings. Cat and Mouse is one such development.

Taking its germ from the great peddler of anthropomorphised cat and mouse chaos Mr. George Herriman, it proceeds in a zigzag line through the gamut of human idiocy from art to war, from technology to industry, from civilisation to love all via the shenanigans of various humanimals mostly of the rodent/feline variety with some notably canine overseers holding court over the proceedings.

Sticking within the traditions of artistic purveyance there will be visuals in the form of animations, sets and costume, there will be live music and there will be storytelling. A theatrical animation experience unlike anything seen before, alike to everything seen once upon a time, long ago…
