THE Swanage Mowlem Showbar is set to host Callum Patrick Hughes for a performance of his hit show Thirst.
The writer and performer will talk about love – love of pubs, love of community, love of family, and a reminder that not everything you love is necessarily good for you.
Thirst is a riotous, warm and musical journey from a small Oxfordshire town through Beijing’s Hutongs and the Scottish Highlands to the bright lights of the ‘Big Smoke’.
Intertwining storytelling and song, it is a love letter to sobriety and a celebration of all things alcoholic – exploring life, family, theatre, religion and, most importantly, the positivity of the pub and how creating a community under the roof of the nearest watering hole does not have to involve alcohol.
The show is on Monday, June 12, at 8pm and staged by Dorset rural arts charity Artsreach as part of the national Inn Crowd project aimed at supporting rural pubs and community bars as vibrant components of community life.
Tickets priced £5 are available from www.artsreach.co.uk
