Little Wander Proudly Presents:
Absolute powershed and regular host of The Guilty Feminist, Jessica Fostekew explores her big strong strength. Have you ever watched a feminist try and take ‘hench’ as a compliment? It’s like watching a snake eat but funny.

You’ve seen Jessica in BBC sitcoms Motherland and Cuckoo and BAFTA Award-winning drama Three Girls.
She's also in forthcoming feature films: Gavin Hood’s Official Secrets and Michael Winterbottom’s Greed. She writes for 8 out of 10 Cats.

Hyde Park Brass Band
Hyde Park Brass was born in 2015 as the product of a one-off performance at the University of Leeds. The boys immediately decided there was more to the band than just one gig, and that’s where the journey began. Building their name around their home city of Leeds, Hyde Park Brass began to curate and develop a rep combining a range of varied musical inspirations. This culminated in the production of their eponymous debut album in 2018, and since then the boys have expanded nationwide, bringing their unmistakeable party style to audiences across the UK and beyond.
Tickets are £8 and are available online, The Old Town hall and OFS direct.
