Wed 14 Sept - An Evening With Nana Funk at St Helens Libary 7.00pm
The time has come for Nana to get intimate. She’s sick of the stadium life and is now touring to smaller scale venues so she can get up close and personal with her army of fans. She’s got a bee in her bonnet and wants you to get on it. This is no teatime with your granny, this is An Evening With Nana Funk!
Get taken on a hilarious and emotional musical rollercoaster as Nana challenges ageism and how aged/aging people are portrayed in society. From delicate ballads to 90’s dance and all the way through to full on ROCK, Nana gives her not so subtle opinions on what it means to be “age appropriate”.
An Evening with Nana Funk is supported by Arts Council England & The Unity Theatre, Liverpool.
Your FREE ticket for this show includes a glass of wine or non-alcoholic drink from the Kaleidoscope Cafe at The World of Glass. CLICK HERE for your FREE ticket!
