Originally commissioned for The Great Exhibition of the North 2018, it’s a about the real Northern Powerhouse, northern women – some you’ve heard of, others you haven’t.

The stand up storytelling show, in the guise of a performance lecture, uncovers the hidden history of the writers, scientists, sportswomen, politicians, protesters, musicians and other heroines who represent the grit, determination and spirit of the North’s women.

Bradford-born and now resident of Thirsk in North Yorkshire, Kate Fox works mainly as a stand-up poet and as a broadcaster and speaker.

She is a familiar voice on radio through two comedy series called The Price of Happiness for Radio 4 about things she’s supposed to want but doesn’t, presenting Pick of the Week, resident poet on Saturday Live and a regular on Radio 3’s The Verb.

Where There’s Muck, There’s Bras is in the Studio on Thursday, January 23.

On Tuesday in the Studio is Revelations, the latest from acclaimed storyteller James Rowland's.

Revelations combines story, comedy (nudity!) and song A couple of years ago James' best friends, Sarah and Emma, asked him for his sperm. This is the tale of what happened next and what happened after that, and what happened after that.

It’s in the same style as previous hits, Team Viking and A Hundred Different Words for Love, now performed over 200 times across the world.
