The nyckelharpa - the Swedish keyed fiddle is an instrument that is capturing the hearts of people the world over. It was once in danger of dyeing out, but kept safe and sound it is now on the up and up. Even so very few people have heard of this magnificent instrument.
Vicki goes back in time, all the way back to the medieval period to give you a potted history of the nyckelharpa. Meet nyckelharpa players from the past, but beware the one in the big black floppy hat.
Tunes, tales and intrigue will ensue.
A multimedia experience.
The fastest way to explain the show is to watch the video

Milk Presents, in association with the Wells Maltings Trust, present Joan - an earthy story of courage, conviction and hope, this is Joan of Arc. Performed by drag king champion Lucy Jane Parkinson, history’s greatest gender-warrior takes to the stage, dragging up as the men she defies in this smash-hit show.
Packed with guts, heart (and some well placed couscous), JOAN is the latest daring fusion of lyrical new writing and cabaret prowess from the multi-award winning Milk Presents.
What happens when a disguise becomes something a lot more real and you have to fight for who you really are? A fearless solo play, with uproarious songs, about what it means to stand out, stand up and stand alone.
Joan is a drag king theatre show that aims to introduce new audiences to the ever growing art-form, placing it within theatre spaces and community settings.
