The Names, The Names at Alma Tavern and Theatre
£16.00

A event on Friday 12th July. The event starts at 20:00.


‘The Names, The Names’ by ACH Smith and Amy King is a one act show of scenes, songs and souvenirs from the hugely successful Bristol Old Vic Production ‘Up The Feeder, Down The Mouth’ together with previously unheard dockers’ stories and presented by Bristol legends John Telfer, Kate McNab and Ross Harvey. Music composed by John O’Hara.

The Ministry of Entertainment was formed by two actors, Kate McNab and Joe Hobbs, to produce theatre based on oral histories from the era of the Second World War. They had met in 1997 during Bristol Old Vic’s premier run of Up the Feeder, Down the Mouth which was directed by Andy Hay and written by A.C.H. Smith about Bristol Docks from the stories of the dockers themselves. During the run Joe and Kate persuaded fellow performer Kit Morgan to be musical director for their new venture and The Ministry of Entertainment was formed! Together, with Ross Harvey,they ran 567 MOE shows together over 21 years! Ending in a sell-out run in June 2022, Mrs. Gerrish's Guesthouse was the last of their highly-successful two-hander performances.

Entry requirements: 14+, any under 18s accompanied by 21+ adult 1:1 ratio
