Julian Clary - Born To Mince
FROM:05-05-2019
TO:05-05-2019
+ More Info +

‘Are you ready for some filth? I know I am. It’s been a while since I sallied forth to pleasure the provinces with my particular brand of saucy innuendo. Let me at them!’

In this outrageously camp new show, (that he was going to call Bed Knobs and Knee Pads but was advised might not sell too well in Harrogate), renowned homosexual Julian Clary will bare his soul as never before in the interests of light entertainment.

He’ll murder some well known songs along the way, no doubt, read you a sneak preview from his next memoir A Night At the Lubricant and make withering remarks about punters foolish enough to sit in the front row. You know the kind of thing. It’s the only life he knows. Don’t miss out.

This might well be the final mince…

Tubular Bells For Two
FROM:07-05-2019
TO:07-05-2019
+ More Info +

Ask anyone who grew up through the 70s and they will be able to tell you exactly where they were when they first heard Tubular Bells. Composed by Mike Oldfield in 1973, the album was the first release on Richard Branson's fledgling record label, Virgin Records. The album went on to sell over 30 million copies - kick-starting the Virgin empire - and became the soundtrack to the cult-classic film, The Exorcist.

Now, 45 years on, two multi-instrumentalists are presenting this modern masterpiece in a challenging live event. With only two men on stage performing every part live with only four hands and four feet between them. It is an intricately choreographed, thrilling piece of tightrope theatre. Things can go wrong at any moment, and the slightest mistake or misplaced limb can bring the entire show crashing to a halt. It is one of the most innovative musical performances to grace the stage in many years.

Tickets: £22.50-£25

Anna McNuff & George Mahood

Anna McNuff is an endurance athlete, adventurer and mischief maker. She was named by the Guardian as one of the top female adventurers of our time, Condé Nast Traveller has recently included her in a list of the 50 most influential travellers in the world.

She has also run the length of New Zealand, and has a penchant for rollerblading.

The plan was simple. George Mahood and his friend Ben had three weeks to cycle 1000 miles from the bottom of England to the top of Scotland. There was just one small problem… they had no bikes, no clothes, no food and no money. Setting off in just a pair of Union Jack boxer shorts, they hoped to rely on the generosity of the British public for everything from food to accommodation, clothes to shoes, and bikes to beer.
