| 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmColchester Bike Kitchen: Mid week edition
Colchester Bike Kitchen, 15 Queen Street
Our workshop is now open on the first and third Wednesday evening of each month!
A bike kitchen is quite simply a place where you can come and use tools to fix your bike, or with some assistance from one of our volunteer mechanics. If you know what you’re doing, that’s great! If you’re a total newbie then that’s fine too, we’ll guide you along the way.
CBK is staffed entirely by volunteers and funded by donations and small grants. All we ask in return for a whole evening of using our workshop is a minimum donation of £5 to help cover our running costs.
We’re running a short user survey to help us learn how we can improve the bike kitchen for you, our users. It only takes 5 minutes:
| 7:30 pm - 11:00 pmRob Newman: A Total Eclipse of Descartes
Colchester Arts Centre, Church Street
In a world gone crazy, can philosophy help? This sparklingly brilliant new show tries to give you the answer.
‘He is the funniest comedian I have ever seen…A passionate, chaotically brilliant comedian.’ Sunday Times
Rob Newman (stand up legend, best-selling novelist, Radio 4 Sony Award Winner) attempts to piece together a philosophy for our troubled times by sifting through 3000 years of thought: from Pythagoras to Artificial Intelligence by way of Pavlov’s dogs, Jane Goodall’s chimpanzees and Frankie Howerd’s trousers.
‘I am completely in awe of Robert Newman. Of his talent, his passion, his intelligence, and the way he turns them to comedy with real firepower. If this world could be saved by a Superhero whose Superpower was Comedy, that hero would be Robert Newman.’ Kate Copstick, Scotsman
Tickets £12.50 / £10.50 concessions.
