Thirst: Stories, songs & music

News |

Thirst by Callum Patrick Hughes is a show about love – love of pubs, love of community and love of family. And a reminder that not everything you love is necessarily good for you.

Everyone has heard of the 27 club – musicians who died too soon. In July 2018, two months before his 28th birthday, Callum Hughes nearly joined that list and was forced to discover who he is without looking through the bottom of a bottle.   

Thirst takes its audience on a riotous, warm, and musical journey from a small Oxfordshire town, through Beijing’s Hutongs and the Scottish Highlands, to the bright lights of the ‘Big Smoke'. A journey that proves that losing your way doesn’t mean that all love and hope is lost.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been in love with pubs. And in Thirst, I start to work out why that just might be. Thirst is made up of stories, songs and music all gathered form my many years, working, performing and, of course, drinking in pubs all across the country! Join me, as I bare all, in an honest, authentic, evening, full of laughter, storytelling and song.
