2pm | Underland

Cornwall Alternative Male Voice Choir

An afternoon of men opening their mouths and making noises.

Men Are Singing eschew the traditional repertoire of songs about fishermen, miners and God (or Andrew Lloyd Webber covers), in favour of some barnstorming versions of tracks by the likes of Talking Heads, Tom Waits, Bjork and Ivor Cutler.

Conducted by Cornish artist/bloke Seamas Carey (The Reason Why, Help! I Think I’m A Nationalist, Pagan Pandemonium).

Introducing: The Falmouth Cringe

Dynnarghn to The Falmouth Cringe

Whether you’re a local, or you’ve travelled here by land, ship, air or roller-skates, Falmouth is the place to be this summer. With 4 days of comedy, in the sun, by the sea, The Falmouth Cringe is the first festival of its kind in the South West. We’re delighted to welcome you to enjoy it with us!

Our festival weekend will see 6 of the best bars and venues our town has to offer throw open their doors to host over 30 comedians from across the UK. Wasson? Truly something for everyone, from kids’ comedy, to stand up shows, to storytelling gigs to comedy bands.

So come and join us, breathe in that sea air, bask in the Cornish sunshine, scoff a few tasty pasties, and top it off by watching some class comedy shows in the pub. As the Cornish would say, “any better and we couldn’t stand it.”
