Liver Cottage Mobile kitchen

Baltic Square, Saturday 18 August

A live cook walk about theatre show; cooking ‘Al Tesco’! The comedy chefs Hugh Fearn and Lee Whittingstall present a cookery demonstration like no other- a fusion food on the move blending home grown ingredients with food foraged from the corner shop, the streets and of course the audience. Their signature dish “Pan fried pizza crusts with medallions of air dried chewing gum” has been hailed by the critics as “ground-breaking”, “audacious” and “chewy”.

Anyone for Tennis

Baltic Square, Sunday 19 August

Strawberries – Cream – Action! Britain’s top ‘miniature, outdoor, comedy tennis show’ has just gone mobile. Pulling the court, scoreboard and posh umpire behind him, our highly-strung tennis player searches for worthy opponents. The ensuing comedy matches features everything about tennis that we love the best … painful injuries, temper tantrums, and of course slow-motion replays.
