The Church Of The Fall
  • Brighton Fringe

A musical AND a film about Queen and not one show about The Fall? That's bobbins!My show (winner of Greater Manchester Spirit Of The Fringe, 2021) is one mans attempt to celebrate the work of the late writer, musician and working-class genius, Salford's Mark E. Smith and his group The Fall. Its a ridiculous ask, the equivalent of trying to do justice to Mozart. Mark E. Smith was comfortably larger than life, with bacchanalian tales to match but the art is always bigger than the artist and so, OK, he was maybe no Mandela but could Mandela have ever given us a tune as banging as say, Spoilt Victorian Child? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RI4O4pJ0o8&ab_channel=CherryRedRecordsAn atheist now and my early faith years were happy ones but these days I evangelize the life-changing revelation of The Fall - but where do I go now that The Fall no longer share this godless universe with me? Fall fandom has often been dismissed as the cult of The Fall but this music is too divine to belong to a cult! The Fall should be a broad church! You dont need to love The Fall to enjoy this show, you just need to love music. There will be love, music and laughter come one, come all to the Church Of The Fall (FREE PINT FOR EX-FALL MEMBERS). Stephen G. Titley is a writer, standup, actor, singer and (dad) dancer - http://stephen-g-titley.co.uk/ or @stevecomic @COTFShow or @ChurchOfTheFall on Twitter. Please note, the performance on Sunday 5th June 7pm is 18+

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
