Professor Elemental.Professor Elemental has created a unique neo-Victorian blend of hip hop and comedy, and is the man behind the youtube hits, ‘Cup Of Brown Joy’ and ‘Fighting Trousers’. His music charts subjects such as steam-powered flight, lovely horses, strange inventions and a nice cup of tea. With a heart of brass and a pair of goggles, he embodies the Victorian spirit of invention and exploration. We will then follow on to a disco and bar till 1am
