leaving home party

Poster image 2

Catherine didn’t have a party the night before she left home. She just stepped onto a plane one Tuesday morning full of the joys of a new adventure.  And now: seven jobs, two boyfriends and three flats later…she’s still here. A foreigner in an almost familiar country.

Catherine Ireton, lead singer of God Help the Girl (Belle and Sebastian) is joined by multi-instrumentalist Ignacio Agrimbau to tell a playful, wryly observed tale about finding one’s way in the world.

Tonight is her leaving home party celebrating all the tiny moments of letting go.
