Something Vicked This Way Comes...

Join us at Cornerhouse this veekend (ahem...weekend) for a one-off interactive screening of Roald Dahl's classic The Witches. The event is part of the Manchester Children's Book Festival, so we promise that it will be as suitable for your disgustink, snivellink childrrrrren as Dahl intended...   

Last night, we made final preparations and a proto-type mouse mask. All we need now is a bucket, a length of rope and some liquid latex. Oh, and you to come along, of course.

The event kicks off at 12 noon on Sunday. Our post-screening workshop is sold-out, but you can still get tickets for the screening/ performance here.

See you there, vitches!

This report comes live from the Eggs studio at Islington Mill! With only 10 days left to go until 'ROYAL RUCKUS' operations are in full swing. Working alongside the brilliantly mental cat masked curators of crank that is CHERYL; this is shaping up to be a most eggs-uberantly, jubilantly, diamond party!  

 With word spreading fast, even the usually slow on the uptake national press are starting to take note as Rachel Cooke pondered in May's Observer Food Monthly 'What is it with the royal family and eggs?'

Well we've been asking the same thing luv and we think you'll find it boils down to mutual respect.
Whilst Gary Barlow's been dragging Prince Harry and his tambourine around the world trying to find the music, we've been in Salford dreaming and scheming our own devoted tributes to our beloved Monarchy and  although  we cant completely let the cat out of the bag there's been rumours of; TIME TRAVEL, WIG FASHIONING,


  Now sling yer 'ook
Do what?
  You 'eard.

Is That The Queen Driving A Ford Transit?

On Friday, armed with Lydia's patented 'Bag-o-Wigs' and Lowri's bright pink camera, we hit the streets of Manchester and Salford to film a promotional video for our forthcoming Queen's Jubilee performance at Islington Mill. If you were in our vicinity, you may well have seen HRH driving Contact's van (with Princess Kate and our producer Roxy riding shotgun), followed closely by Wills and Lady Di in Fiat Punto.  

After some vehicle-height-restriction drama in a car park, being approached by the NewsRound crew in the Northern Quarter and a dash round Sainsbury's for some quiche, we headed over to Islington Mill to be joined by our lovely eggs-tras for the afternoon. After hearing about it on Twitter, even Prince Charles dropped in...

He helped us to sellotape some glow-sticks to a black curtain,

then swore us to secrecy until after the final edit (probably to reduce the risks of mass hysteria). So, for now, our lips are sealed, but we can't wait to share the finished video with you!

What Do Eggs Do For Easter?

There were no wild parties over our third birthday weekend, but instead a stock-broker-style, very serious, very futuristic virtual meeting. A high-powered, high-tech meeting that simultaneously harnessed the power of Facebook, email, phone calls and picture messages. A meeting spanning a continent, linking Brussels, a charity shop in Manchester city centre and a one bedroom flat in Whalley Range. A meeting about a top secret project and the acquisition of THIS second hand frock...

Find out what it's all about, check back here soon!
