Just The Tonic at the Caves


This show operates under the Pay What You Want (PWYW) model. To guarantee entry, buy a ticket in advance. Ticket-holders will be seated first. Any empty seats will then be filled from the free queue and audiences asked to leave a donation at the end.

True storytelling show Tales of Whatever returns for 2019 with changing daily line-ups of seasoned Fringe comics and performers, all going off-script to share true stories of first-hand experiences. Up to five different acts join hosts Mark Powell and Lee Moore each day with 10-minute tales of weird, horrifying, funny, glorious or memorable incidents and encounters. Previous speakers from as far afield as Buenos Aires, Gauteng, Melbourne, Salford and NYC have discussed being shipwrecked, marrying pantomime horses, collecting in-laws from prison, and solving domestic hauntings with GCSE chemistry. 'Conversational, funny and inclusive' (Guardian).
