What's On Highlights

Anna McNuff & George Mahood
FROM:07-05-2019
TO:07-05-2019
+ More Info +

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 is the UK ambassador for Girl Guiding, and has cycled over 20,000 miles in Europe and the Americas, including through all 50 states of the USA. 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.

Bedroom Farce
FROM:10-05-2019
TO:11-05-2019
+ More Info +

Three bedrooms. Four couples. One night.

It’s the night of Malcolm and Kate’s party. Jan and Nick are invited, but Nick has hurt his back and taken to his bed, leaving Jan to go to the party on her own, where she is drawn together with her ex-boyfriend Trevor. Trevor’s wife Susannah seeks refuge with Trevor’s parents, Delia and Ernest, leading to a night of comic confusion, infidelity, DIY and pilchards, hilariously skewering middle-class relationships as only the master Alan Ayckbourn can.

An amateur production presented by arrangement with Samuel French.

Tickets: £13-£15
Groups (8+)/Senior/Disabled: £1.25 off
JSA/Income Support/Students/Children: ½ price

The Fureys

TO:16-05-2019
+ More Info +

Renowned for their hit songs I Will Love You, When You Were Sweet 16, The Green Fields of France, The Old Man, Red Rose Café, From Clare to Here, Her Father Didn’t Like Me Anyway, Leaving Nancy and Steal Away, The Fureys have been entertaining audiences worldwide for 41 years.

The Fureys are responsible for some of the most stirring music ever to capture the public imagination. Their folk-based music has received standing ovations in some of the biggest concert halls of the world and they credit their musical ability to their parents, Ted and Nora, who were well known musicians themselves. They encouraged their sons to play music from a very early age and there was live traditional music in their house almost nightly. Their emotive songs stir many emotions….tears and laughter, sadness and joy.

A Fureys concert is always a night to remember.

Mark Steel
FROM:31-05-2019
TO:31-05-2019
+ More Info +

A few years ago, it seemed unlikely that the UK would vote to leave the EU.

We had a reasonable opposition to the Tory Government, Donald Trump surely wasn’t going to beat Hillary Clinton and Mark was living the married suburban ideal. But don’t worry as Mark thinks Every Little Thing’s Gonna Be Alright.

Mark’s sell-out show Who Do I Think I Am, revealed his natural father was a world backgammon champion. Now the star of Radio 4’s Mark Steel’s In Town, and newspaper columnist of the year is touring a show which is guaranteed to make the world seem even more mental than it is.

Tickets: £17.50

Age guidance: 14+
