The Cosmic Sausages
Presented in conjunction with Upwood Village Hall Performing Arts Events.

Carlton House, Upwood at 6.45pm

With a repertoire of hundreds of songs, melodies and theme tunes, the Cosmic Sausages take their audience on a madcap musical tour of the world, meeting up with James Bond, Serge Gainsbourg, the Mafia, deranged cowboys, faith healers, Cossacks and overacting popstars along the way.


Appearing first as a gentle folk band and armed only with acoustic instruments, close harmonies and a shared vision of the surreal, the Cosmic Sausages ambush their audience with a sustained barrage of pop classics, mixing theatre, circus, slapstick, competitions, crowd participation and insane walkabouts.

Tuesday 31 July

Peterborough Morris
with Ouse Washes Molly

Jolly Sailor, Ramsey at 8pm

Morris dancers

A welcome return for Peterborough Morris as they perform traditional English Morris dances in the Cotswold tradition. Peterborough Morris perform mostly traditional dances in the styles of various villages in the south Midlands of England, a form known as Cotswold Morris. This is usually performed with hankies or sticks and is probably what most people associate with the term "Morris Dancing". Cotswold dances are from in or around Oxfordshire and Gloucestershire. More info at: www.peterboroughmorris.co.uk or call 01733 844003.


molly

This year they will be joined by Ouse Washes Molly dancers who have been performing the traditional molly dances of the Fens since 1984. Based in Norfolk, they regularly perform at major international festivals in the UK and beyond. Their powerful dances and mysterious stories from the depths of the Fens provide audiences with a memorable experience. More info at: www.ousewashesmolly.uk
