BRIGHTON BITES: Northern Power Blouse

Back by popular demand for 2017, our Brighton Bites series offer short, witty and slightly tongue-in-cheek insights into shows performing at England’s largest arts festival. Hopefully, they will whet your appetite to try something new at this year’s Brighton Fringe.
Here, Northern Power Blouse tells us about their show, Northern Power Blouse, which they’ll be performing at Laughing Horse at the Caroline of Brunswick.


How would you describe your show in one sentence?
It’s a right good sketch show from a feisty three piece suite of northern lasses with a show that’s full of heart, songs and massive shoulder pads

Why Brighton Fringe for this show?
We want to take our silly, colourful show to the most colourful seafront in Britain outside of Morecambe

How have you been preparing for Brighton Fringe?
We’ve been carb loading with a strict diet of meat and potato pie

What do you think sets your show apart from all the other festival offerings?
We’re bringing you larger than life sketches with big bold characters and we’re not afraid to bring flammable 80s blouses back into fashion

What’s the show that you don’t want to miss at this year’s Brighton Fringe (apart from your own)?
We’ll be supporting our fellow National Film and Television School coursemates, the very funny David McIver and Kids With Beards

What’s the best bit of advice you’ve ever been given for performing at a Fringe Festival?
Just imagine everyone is naked from the calf down

If your show was a flavour of ice cream being sold on Brighton Pier, what would it be?
If Brighton is anything like Blackpool, it would be the absolute classic ‘Meat pie’ flavour or if that’s not available for any reason, it would be a large, nutty, very stodgy affair, the kind that you’d have great difficulty fitting in your mouth before.

Northern Power Blouse runs at Brighton Fringe 22 & 29 May 2017
