6th December 2019 18:30 - 21:00

VENUE: Olby's Soul Café, 3-5 King St, Margate, CT9 1DD


Brigitte Aphrodite and Quiet Boy's new show Parakeet is soaring back to Margate for an exclusive homecoming performance following an unforgettable run at Edinburgh Fringe.

In Margate an isolated teenager forms a band and finds her voice with the help of a gang of exotic birds. Dust, a lively, offbeat 17-year-old from Thanet, and Tam, a musically gifted Eritrean refugee facing an uncertain future, take our Girl under their wings. Together they are The Parakeets.

Parakeet is a genre-crossing status quo defying musical about finding your flock and ruffling feathers. A feast for the ears, eyes and heart told through irresistible song, punk poetry, electronic sounds and cutting edge fashion.

In a world full of uncertainties, only one thing is for sure: it’s time to discover the new spirit of punk, a gentler punk – punk with empathy.


Tickets are £6 + booking fee in advance.

This is a 14+ event, under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.
