Then it's on to the Tolmen Centre in Constantine near Falmouth on the same day for a performance of The Further Adventures of Monsieur Robinet at 7.00pm.

The tour concludes on Sunday 19th September at 7.30pm when the Exeter Phoenix hosts another chance to catch The Further Adventures of Monsieur Robinet.
Next, a gig alongside Diego Brown and the Good Fairy at The Thunderbolt Bristol now has a new date of Friday 24 September at 7.30pm.
Then as part of National Poetry Day at 7.30pm on Thursday 7 October at St Albans Library, a performance of poems from New and Selected Potatoes alongside Scottish double bassist Andy Hamill, standing in for Keith Moore who is unable to attend and giving the evening a cross-national boundary flavour.
