Experience the thrill of a live symphony orchestra performing some of the most memorable film and television themes ever written.

Collabro are an English musical theatre boy band who took the Britain's Got Talent judges' and viewers' breath away with their renditions of classic tracks.

Born to a Muslim father and a Christian mother in what is now considered by many to be Boko Haram territory, in 1996, award winning poet and playwright Inua Ellams left Nigeria for England aged 12, moved to Ireland for 3 years before retuning to London and starting work as a writer and graphic designer. Part of this story was documented in his hilarious autobiographical Edinburgh Fringe First award winning play, The 14th Tale, but most of it is untold. For one night only, littered with poems, stories and anecdotes, Inua will tell his ridiculous, fantastic, poignant immigrant-story of escaping fundamentalist Islam, directing an arts festival at his college in Dublin, performing solo shows at the National Theatre, and drinking wine with the Queen of England, all the while without a country to belong to or place to call home.
This pitch perfect tribute to Fawlty Towers starts as the audience waits to be seated then hurtles along for two hours of fully immersive, highly improvised and site-specific comedy theatre. With only a third of the show scripted, everything stays fresh as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve up some madcap mayhem and a three-course meal - with the audience playing the part of their restaurant diners. Do expect 'a rip-roaringly hilarious night out' (This Is London) with all the best gags... but don't expect a herd of giant wildebeest, and certainly don't mention the war!

The Yamato Company was founded in 1993 in Japan's Kansai region by Artistic Director, Masa Ogawa, who explains the company's ethos: "Taiko is a musical instrument deeply familiar to every Japanese person. Since the dawn of history, Taiko's rich reverberations have filled people with inspiration and encouragement in a wide range of settings. Its unmistakable sound is still heard throughout Japan today. We, the members of Yamato, believe in the unique value of Taiko. We are committed to preserving its traditions and exploring new possibilities for this majestic instrument. Our goal is to create ever more opportunities for the boom of Taiko to resound worldwide." Yamato play Wadaiko drums that range from the size of a plate to over a metre in diameter, including the Odaiko drum, hewn from one huge tree over four hundred years old. Yamato's captivating music has both delicate beauty and heart thumping bass power, played by drummers with a strength and skill that defies belief.
