COMEDY CLUB 4 KIDS

Thursday 15th & Friday 16th, 11:00 - 12:00

Since 2005, the Comedy Club 4 Kids has been getting the best stand-ups and sketch acts from the international circuit to do their thing for an audience of children and their families... but without the

rude bits! It’s just like a normal comedy club, but it’s on in the day, kids are allowed in, and keeping with the SMASHfestUK theme - some of the jokes are about flood!

Cosmic Jives by Rebecca Manley

Thursday 15th, 14:00 - 15:00 & Friday 16th, 15:00 - 16:00

A new play by Rebecca Manley about girls, science & one of the hazards of living in space, a solar storm.

Rory doesn’t like doing what is expected of her. When she’s told science is for boys and people like her don’t go to university something explodes quietly inside her and she is determined to prove  everyone wrong. But she is stopped in her tracks when she hears of an eruption elsewhere, on the surface of the sun. And Rory knows more than most 17 year olds what this might mean for Deptford and way way beyond.

A cast of young local actors bring to life this new play that asks what might happen if a solar storm hits the earth. Expect playful and wholly subjective musings on astrophysics, the Matilda effect and rubber chickens.

STEM the Tide

Thursday 15th, 16:00 - 17:15 

Come and immerse yourself in the story of the Great London Flood of 2018! Told through music, poetry, comedy, rhyme and song, we trace the path of a rising storm surge as it bombards its way up the Thames, breaking down river defences and heading towards Deptford. It’s a bigger surge than has ever been seen since the deadly flood of ‘53. Can the Thames flood barrier hold back the tide? Or are we all destined for a dunk in a watery Deptford disaster! Bring your brolly!

With an amazing line-up of local performers - our ’Science Talent Contest Winners 2017’ from the International School Greenwich and Haberdashers & Aske’s Hatcham College, with seasoned professionals such as Poetry Takeaway, Simon ‘Ugly Flood Animals’ Watt, Sheila Pearson, Nate Adams, and more!
