Imagine the love child of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Dusty Springfield and you will begin to get a feel for Joanne Shaw Taylor's fiery guitar-playing, sultry vocals and 100% pure soul. Born and raised amongst the steelworks of Britain's Black Country, she picked up a guitar when she was 14 and has never looked back. She toured the UK with her own band, headlined at major clubs including Ronnie Scotts and played all the major European blues festivals, alongside the likes of BB King. Her own writing has led to her to something beyond the blues through a soulful mix of roots and pop influences sung in a haunting, smoky voice.
In a vain attempt at bourgeois credibility, Manchester's sharp-dressed, sharp-delivering punk poet Lenny, changed his name to John Cooper Clarke and embarked on a ?polysyllabic excursion though Thrillsville'! Clad in the slum chic of the hipster, he issued the slang anthems of the zip age in the desperate esperanto of bop. Expect a mix of hilarious anecdotes of life in a Northern town interspersed with machine-gun fast delivery of some of his best poems. If you think poetry is dull and boring, or posh and erudite - you haven't seen JCC!

Have the time of your life, the smash-hit stage spectacular featuring all the hits from one of the biggest dance movies of all time - Dirty Dancing - is coming to town. "It's the sexiest song and dance sensation of 2012, presented by an all-star cast of West End performers," says show producer Michael Taylor. "Celebrated film Dirty Dancing boasted the greatest movie soundtrack of all time. All the hits are superbly performed in this fast moving, slickly choreographed theatrical treat." Song include She's Like the Wind, Big Girls Don't Cry, Hey Baby, Wipeout, Do You Love Me, Be My Baby, Hungry Eyes and, of course, the Oscar-winning (I've Had) The Time of My Life.

"The whole world loves Dirty Dancing," says Michael. "It's the ultimate coming of age romance and truly iconic entertainment." The film defines the 1980s. It was the first movie to sell 1 million videos, it produced a number one single and achieved album sales of 42 million worldwide. "Prepare for A Night of Dirty Dancing - not the West End and touring musical, but the brand-new sensational, inspirational, aspirational box office smash of the year," says Michael.
