Unashamedly merging their favourite sounds, the band are creating something refreshingly individual.

They have already racked up a number of successes in their short tenure, including their riff-driven release Money being crowned BBC Introducing’s Track of the Week and most recently they have released their first track of 2021, 'See You Again', which has also been bestowed the honour of Track of the Week by BBC Introducing:
“A track so slick and sublime you are instantly reminded that Rock N Roll is here to stay...We are excited to see what comes next from these Londoners as this has really whet our appetite for more.”

The Great Leslie: 20:30 - 21:10

The band formed in late 2009 and have been playing across the UK ever since to increasingly large crowds who often follow them across their tours and travel great distances to catch them. From initial forays into pubs and clubs to dedicated music venues, festivals and having the distinction of being the first tribute to be invited to play at Paul Heaton's Salford venue, The Kings Arms, on the eve of Paul and Jacqui Abbott's "comeback" album 'What Have We Become' the band have acquired high praise indeed with Paul himself endorsing them on BBC Radio 2 saying "they're really good".

How do you play? The audience is trapped in a retro videogame with a sadistic end-of-level boss. Choose your options, survive the abuse simulator that is the improv comedy overlord John Robertson, and escape to win £1000 – or, be brutally murdered by the rest of the crowd!
Now, will you:
A) Find the Light Switch
B) Go North?
C) Abandon Hope?
This high-octane show is the brainchild of comedian & cult leader John Robertson. Filled with stand-up, appalling prizes and more audience chanting than you’d get at a protest – it’s a gut-busting rock n’ roll experience for everyone who buys a ticket.
John has performed The Dark Room to crowds of thousands at comedy and gaming festivals around the world. Most recently: Insomnia Gaming Festival, London Film & ComicCon, Sci-Fi Weekender, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, FringeWorld Perth, Leeds International Festival, Sheffield Doc/Fest AND a monthly residency in London at the prestigious Soho Theatre.
“NOT TO BE MISSED!”
“What a marvellous, maddening concept this is from the twisted mind of Robertson”
“Will have you crying with laughter”
“Watching people tackle the challenge and fail is one of the funniest sights around. Don’t miss it.” The Daily Telegraph
“One of the most innovative and original comedy shows around”
