The festival runs for another week bringing a fringe festival feel to Preston.

Here’s a breakdown of what’s happening when and where.

Saturday 11 October 2014

8pm – Music with Ska Face

Formed from the desire to return to the classic sounds of their youth, Ska Face contains ten individual members with a combined age of over 450 years between them. Old enough to know better but young and foolish enough to attempt to re-write the rule book and enjoy music with the passion and honesty that it was designed for.

An antidote to the mass mediocrity played across the country, in a world dominated by media hype, spin, and untruths, Ska Face keep it real and enjoy every minute with an infectious stage show of power, energy and damn good tunes that you just have to dance to. There is no better remedy to a stressful week than a few cheeky drinks and dancing like a loon; and that’s just the band!

Venue: The Continental Price: £7

8.30pm – Oxjam

8.30pm – Modify My Vagina by Claire Doyle

This exhibition (already performed at The Arts Centre. Ormskirk. Feb 2014) involves an audience modifying a plaster mold of my vagina with glitter, paint, feathers, etc. The customised molds are then displayed.

If the piece was to be less interactive, I would be happy to simply display the molds I have kept since the last showing of this piece.

I hope the participants can use this occasion to consider and discuss stigma and taboo surrounding female genitalia.

Have you ever seen a vagina that has NEVER been designed to look or feel anything other than its natural state?

Do you have a preferable vagina type? No hair? Lots of hair? Piercings? Small labia/clitoris? Large labia/clitoris? No labia? No clitoris?

The modification of female genitalia such as hair removal, vaginal bleaching, surgery, and genital mutilation are available and even promoted by cultures and media surrounding us daily. These procedures usually occur so a level of acceptance can be created in a culture that thinks genitalia’s natural appearance is a taboo.

Venue: Cafe Korova Price: £3 Age: 18+

7pm – Preston’s People Choir

A session with the Preston People’s Choir, a group who sing unaccompanied and usually in 3 or 4 part harmony. This is a session rather than a performance so the audience will be expected to join the group and learn some songs with us.

Come and join the Preston People’s Choir! No audition, no music-reading, no need to have a great voice. Singing arrangements of popular music and folk songs from around the world, this is not a performance – it is a chance to join in.
