Pianist, inventor and performer Sarah Nicolls developed her unique 'Inside-Out Piano' to explore the belly of the instrument and to coax out some of its hidden sounds.

She brings this unique show to South Street, Reading on Friday, December 4.

 In this solo show, she explores the extraordinary unexpected characteristics of the instrument, moving it around the stage to gradually reveal her parallel journey into motherhood.

See this monumental piano in surprising motion, hear the beautiful melodies and textures of Sarah's piano-songs mixed with stories of creativity, and contemplate the moments of life where everything seems to stand still.

On Saturday 5 at South Street, poet, writer and beard-wearer A F Harrold hosts his sixth annual Lovely Cabaret.

This year guests include Nurse Rob Gee, Michelle Madsen and Natalie Haynes. Tickets cost £10.
