New Art Exhibition Launch: Kerry Phippen ‘Gentle Wild II’


20732843_10155284599182529_1740897779_n The Malthouse walls are once again graced with more exceptional artwork.

Enjoy these spectacular paintings at the Malthouse Bar & Kitchen between 9th August – 18th September

The idea for  this series of paintings by local artist Kerry Phippen, came from a simple wish to bring the outdoors inside, and an initial vision of how she would love to see images of live-sized animals leaping around the space. Her desire to capture the sense of the animal, their very nature and traits an of course, their beauty.
It is about being quiet and observant
“I am extremely lucky that I live in an area where I regularly see horses, deer, foxes, buzzards and other wild animals. They inspire me and I love to watch them, using drawing and photography in the early stages of ideas building. These have evolved into ink paintings on wonderful handmade Indian rag paper, combining my love for ink and fine papers and gorgeous wild creatures”

Crazy Bird Comedy Club & The Malthouse Bar & Kitchen Present….

Comedy Night

The CrazyBird Comedy Club and The Malthouse Bar & Kitchen have teamed up to bring you a night of fantastic comedy and tantalizing food on Thursday 14th September at the ever popular venue – The Malthouse Bar & Kitchen in Stroud.
Delicious food from the Malthouse menu will be served between 5-7.30pm before it gives way to four professional comedians from the UK & International comedy circuit.
MC for the evening will be fans favourite, the inimitable Geoff Whiting. Geoff will draw on his 20 years’ experience in the industry to ensure the night gets off to a flyer and will ensure that both audience and acts alike are enjoying themselves.
First on the bill is Belfast boy Ryan McDonnell, “candid and incisive brand of comedy” The Irish Post. Ryan McDonnell is no stranger to laughs in his home town and is currently building up quite a reputation for himself on the UK comedy circuit. Ryan interjects a sharp wit and Irish charm in his observation of everyday life. Sometimes bizarre, often dark he’ll guide you on a unique journey through the world as he sees it.
Seeing you through the middle section is Kiwi comic Richard Lindesay, ‘A barrage of great gags, displaying a high level of wit and wordplay’ Oliver Smith ‘Speakeasy’ 2016. With his popular quirky gags and offbeat persona, Richard’s act is sure to add a touch of uniqueness to our comedy line-up. An Antipodean Milton Jones / Demetri Martin hybrid, with a friendly and playful delivery of a sharp mix of quirky one-liners and visual gags.
Headlining the evening will be the stunning Mark Palmer. Cheeky South African Mark makes it funny, entertaining and will make you say more than once – that is so true! He is first rate comedy therapy. Mark has been performing and honing his skills for over 11 years becoming one of South Africa’s most sought after comedians and he is now based in the UK. Mark brings you great comedy with no harmful side-effects. What? No Vulgarity, No Cringing, No Embarrassing Situations? Oh yes … once you see Mark live, you will never forget him! Mark gets his material from the daily perils of being newly married, babysitting other people’s kids, airport madness, the advances of technology and general social commentary on everyday life. But you are thinking it must be difficult to work clean all the time, right? “Clean comedy is easy. Funny comedy is hard.” Mark is both.

Food Served 5pm-7.30pm
Show starts at 8pm
Tickets – £12.50 in advance or £14 on the door.


Namibia, Namibia, Namibia – an evening of story & musical accompaniment


Namibia 3

“Namibia Namibia Namibia tells the story of a handful of Brits who flew out to Namibia to work on the feature film Mad Max-Fury Road in 2012.

What began as a simple email to family and friends back home soon became a journal with thirty plus recipients and to this day is emailed out upon request in its original weekly format.

The evening of 6th August will be the first time it has been performed in front of an audience and it will have live musical accompaniment.

The food will have an African theme, while the evening should feel decidedly Namibian.
Whilst we were working in Namibia local people were employed, fairly paid and trained to do what was required to complete a Feature Film that went on to be so successful at the 2016 BAFTA Film Awards and also the 2016 Oscar Award Ceremonies.

Most importantly the journal tells of a journey, of an adventure, of friendships and of an understanding between very different cultures coming together in a creative environment.

To this day we are still in contact with some of our Namibian friends. Although this should just be a whole lot of fun I hope it will also help raise both an awareness and an interest in a fascinating country that despite being approximately three times the size of the United Kingdom has a population of only about two and a half million and has somehow remained wonderfully unspoiled or marred by a constantly developing world”
