Romesh Ranganathan returns to Ropery Hall

Just months after he wowed the audience at his first visit to Barton upon Humber’s Ropery Hall, comedian Romesh Ranganathan has announced he is returning with  new show ‘Irrational’ next spring.

Tickets are already on sale for the gig on Sunday, March 20 and after just days on sale it looks like his appearance will soon be sold out.

“Romesh’s impact on the comedy circuit since his debut in 2010 has seen him quickly make a name for himself.  He certainly did when he appeared at Ropery Hall in February this year with his critically acclaimed Edinburgh Festival show, Rom wasn’t built in a day,” said Liz Bennet of The Ropewalk.

In his new show. Irrational,  Romesh will examine the issues close to his heart, and explains why everybody else is wrong about them.

“This new show promises to be as much of a hit as his previous shows!” Liz continued.

If is followers can’t wait until March 20 to see him at the Malt kiln Road venue Romesh will be launching his very own six-part series for BBC Three “Asian Provocateur” that sees his mum sending him off to Sri Lanka in search of his roots on the trip she has always hoped he would make.

He will also be taking a regular place on the panel of The Apprentice You’re Fired that begins later this month alongside the business experts and celebrities who appear each week to discuss the outgoing candidates’ performance.

Tickets for Romesh’s show will cost £14 in advance or £16 on the door and are available now from by phoning 01652 660380 or by calling into the Craft Gallery at The Ropewalk.

Mammal Hands

Mammal Hands are a trio of like-minded musicians: Nick Mart piano, Jesse Barrett drums and tabla, and Jordan Smart saxophones. Signed to Matthew Halsall’s Gondwana Records they have carved out a growing following both here and abroad for their hypnotic fusion of jazz, folk and electronica: winning fans from Bonobo and Gilles Peterson to Jamie Cullum and they have been compared to both Portico Quartet and GoGo Penguin (who the group have toured with) for the way in which they navigate the choppy waters between contemporary dance music and jazz. Drawing on a rich well of influences from Sufi and shamanic African trance music, Irish and Eastern European folk music, to Steve Reich and Philip Glass and more contemporary electronica influences, their music is built around deceptively simple sounding ideas that are lent power through the use of repetition and rhythmic loops.
