Having sold out the Tobacco Factory and brought its audience unanimously to their feet, Pepino have turned their eye to the Cube for their next theatrical adventure.

For this very special show, Pepino, consisting of violin, cello, double bass, drums and vocals led by Blythe on piano, team up with visual artist Paul Blakemore to bring you "battlistica": a rendition of their epic/comic songs in a war-based environment alongside images from a battle reconstruction complete with shopping trolleys and fire extinguishers.

"Pepino are simply unmissable." - Venue magazine
