Former Maccabees frontman Orlando Weeks will make a first live outing to recreate his Gritterman multimedia project up on stage.

The Gritterman has been released as an illustrated book and companion album, narrated by British comedy legend Paul Whitehouse, and the opportunity to experience it live will now be presented at the Union Chapel in London on December 12th.

All this tells the story of, ‘an ice-cream man in the summer months’, according to the synopsis. “The Gritterman’s true love is his other seasonal job: to secure the safety of treacherously icy roads at the height of winter,” it continues.

“The turning point comes early in the narrative when the local council writes to tell The Gritterman that his services are no longer required,” the synopsis continues.

“After this revelation we follow our hero on his final night of doing the job that he loves.”
