Everyone’s got a local, a pub where everyone knows you – this one happens to be at the end of hyperspace.

In the corner, a timelord drinks Sumerian Sunsets with a bounty hunter; by the gaming table, a human in pyjamas is having a heated conversation with a two-headed reptilian; and next to the jukebox, a young Union Officer flirts with a mechanoid.

Fusing elements of British Sci-fi and beyond, and bought to you by fringe-favourites, The Ministry of Unplanned Occurrences, The Asteroid and Tentacle is an unscripted show set in a bar in a galaxy far, far away.
