1000£Bend regulars Peter and Paisley are performing a comedy show at ours as part of the Melbourne Fringe Festival and we can’t wait for the medieval spectacular these two gentlemen will bring.
Directed by Harley Hefford, their show fortunately runs for more than just two nights but does indeed only feature two knights. It tells a tale of epic medieval adventure featuring an array of characters played by Peter and Paisley themselves. Let yourself be whisked away a few odd centuries and delight in what only two men pretending to be knights, as well as peasants, villains and kittens (so we’ve been promised) can offer.

1000 Pound Bend is excited to have Robert as September's cafe artist. All of his works are for sale. Come on in, grab a coffee and check out his amazing pieces.
Robert Scholten is an artist based in Melbourne, Australia. With diverse influences such as ukiyo-e, typography, comics, printed ephemera and flemish paintings (to name a few), Robert integrates the contrasts of human experience in his own visual style - the sublime and the profane, the reality and the immaterial - while having a lot of fun in the process! His work invites you into a layered world of weird fantasy mixed with comic realism, building strange narratives within the viewer.
