Headed by classic band members Dave Vanian and Captain Sensible, along with Monty Oxy Moron, Pinch and Stu West, The Damned have lost none of their energy, music; melody and lyrical diversity combined in an intoxicating potion that stirs the blood and sets the pulse racing.
When a theatre is 'dark' it means that it is closed.

For the past 20 years, the unique voice and music of Neil Diamond has been portrayed by JJ Jones all over the world, including many years touring Australia and Europe. Hello Again is his new UK Theatre show for 2014, consisting of 2 hours of unforgettable music celebrating the songwriting genius who has written such enormous hits as Love on the Rocks, Sweet Caroline and Cracklin' Rosie.

The latter half is a more lively adaptation of his Hot August Night album and songs from the film The Jazz Singer, and features hits including America, Hello Again and Brother Loves Travelling Salvation Show.
