Jonathan Goodwin performs in a show scripted by himself, and directed by Gary Archer.

The performance space and seating area is fully wheelchair accessible, but please email josie.wall@jqdt.org so we can ensure space is left for your wheelchair in your seating area. If you have any other access needs.

We had an amazing day yesterday at the @jqbid #jqfestival collaborating with @jo_gane1 @suslifeuk @dontgointothecellar and of course the @friendskeyhillwarstonelanecem meeting so many amazing people

We couldn't have done it without everyone's help, including loads of support behind the scenes from @bhamcitycouncil @coffin_works @thehivejq and all the amazing #JQHeritageSquad volunteers.

Now we need to sleep for a week but then we'll be buzzing with ideas for 2023!
