We do love a bit of comedy at Warwick Arts Centre, and the first day of the live season saw a foyer full of those in search of fun and laughter, with both Richard Herring and Terry Alderton performing.

The following night, our live music programme got underway with some “transcendent” jazz from Claire Martin and Joe Stilgoe.
Fantastic CMartinjazz and joestilgoe concert at Warwick Arts. Every phrase exquisitely crafted. Transcendent. So glad I went.Jon Payne
There was an evening of folk collaboration and blether from Fence Collective, where James Yorkston, Seamus Fogarty and the Pictish Trail banded together to entertain our studio audience.

Into the weekend and comedy was king again, with Tony Law, Rich Hall and Sean Lock all in the building.
Who’s Laughing Now? “ Blog Archive “ Review: Tony Law – Maximum Nonsense Warwick Arts Centre, April 28th 2013Canadian stand-up Tony Law has resided in England for so long that, by his own admission, his accent can be a little hard to place sometimes. The same could be said of his identity too - after more than an hour of Maximum Nonsense, the audience was no closer to learning who he really is.</div><div>Tony Law fantastic in warwickarts last night. Really, really funny. Too many good acts, too little time.Isaac Leigh

On Tuesday, dance was the focus, as we played host to Rosie Kay Dance Company’s performance of There is Hope, featuring a very special curtain-raiser performance from the students on the performing arts course at North Warwickshire and Hinckley College.
Review On Tour: There is Hope – A Younger TheatrePosted on 02 May 2013 Written by Hannah Tookey Rosie Kay’s latest work, There Is Hope, is intelligent, thoughtful, soothing and provocative. A deliberate use of set and visual imagery throughout the performance, alongside strong musicality, all serve to express the power of thought behind the movement on stage.
Fab ‘There is Hope’ performance warwickarts tonight - special big up to mappage and co for the brilliant music.Elizabeth Ralls
Just back from Rosie Kay’s ‘There is hope ‘ at Warwick Arts Centre. Lots going on. Great to have live music.Ana Barbour
This week also saw the culmination of three weeks worth of memory collecting in Coventry city centre by Invisible Flock. After receiving over 500 memories, they turned them into a fantastic live show called Bring the Happy, featuring live music from the band Hope & Social. A unique show, created specially for us – what a wonderful thought! It certainly made our audiences very happy indeed!

We were also busy over the last two weeks launching our special one-off series of solo performances called (L)one. We’ve had so many comments from the series so far that we can’t fit them all in here! We’ll be creating a special Storify encompassing the first half of the season next week, so if you’ve been to see any (L)one performances, let us know what you thought!
