The best of brass band music.
He was a navvy, then a postman, and finally a teacher, and he sang at night in the pubs and clubs of Liverpool. Then, after 30 years of trying, Charlie Landsborough became an overnight country star.
In the eight weeks between that first meeting and appearing on "A Song for Europe" on 11th March 1981, Bucks Fizz were hurled into a melee of rehearsing, recording, routining, styling, interviews and photography. All that hard work and effort was to pay dividends - they went on to win the Song For Europe and Eurovision Song Contest 1981 and became household names around the world. With over 20 singles released over the next few years including 3 number ones, "My Camera Never Lies", "Land Of Make Believe" and of course, "Making Your Mind Up", they sold in excess of 15 million records, spending 219 weeks in the UK charts alone!
In a fairy-tale kingdom, poor Cinderella is a servant to her cruel stepmother and ugly stepsisters. When a handsome prince invites all the maidens of the land to his party, she only has rags to wear. With the help of her friend Buttons and a sprinkling of magic from her Fairy Godmother, will she make it to the ball after all?
A concoction of trapeze artists, daredevil circus acts, sword swallowers, voodoo acrobats, extreme contortionists and vampires - the finest examples of extreme circus! This event is not suitable for under 16s.

Three 70-something hard working cleaners are facing the axe. They are past their best, beyond their sell-by date and over the hill but they certainly won't take their redundancy lying down. These game 'girls' set up a phone-sex service "The Telephone Belles" and that's when the fun really begins. Their bosses don't know about it, their families don't know about it and their very willing customers definitely don't know about it. They're the only chat-line girls with dusters, attitude and their very own bus passes!
With a top line-up of actor-musicians, multiple costume changes and nostalgic film footage, this glittering two-hour production charts the musical and emotional highs and lows of Elvis' amazing journey from poor truck-driving teenager from Tupelo, Mississippi through the army, Hollywood and finally the legendary Las Vegas concerts.
This feelgood show will instantly transport you back to the golden years of rock'n'roll, as you witness Elvis audition for the very first time at Sun Studios, then become part of the TV audience for the '68 Comeback Special, and finally dance in the aisles at a Las Vegas concert as Mario recreates with incredible accuracy the charisma, stage presence and humour of the man himself - you may even get your hands on a scarf!
A tribute to George Michael.
Join Father Ted on the remote fictional Craggy Island as he deals with matters of the church but more often with schemes to either resolve a situation with the parish or other Craggy Island residents, or to win games of one-upmanship against his arch-nemesis, Father Dick Byrne of the nearby Rugged Island parish. A brilliantly well written and hilarious production that is bound to have the audience rolling around with laughter.
Lots of jokes from the Mock The Week regular with his brand-new show.

Tarby, as he is known to millions of TV viewers, is one of the country's most evergreen performers and a master of light entertainment. Having successfully spent more than 40 years in the notoriously fickle world of showbusiness, Jimmy Tarbuck has hosted numerous television shows, variety shows, chat shows and game shows and his cheeky grin and boy-next-door charms have won him fans far away from his native Liverpool.
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!

Winner of five major comedy awards. 24-hour-show luminary. Novelist. Watson (host of BBC's We Need Answers, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Mock The Week regular and star of cult Radio 4 series Mark Watson Makes The World Substantially Better).
After more than 100 dates on the road in 2016 with his best-reviewed show to date, I'm Not Here, and a similarly marathon effort with the previous tour, Mark Watson is amazed to find there are STILL some areas of the country he's not visited much, and some towns that have been neglected altogether. It's hard to be everywhere at once, so he's narrowed it down to a sensible plan: for the next tour, Watson will only visit places beginning with M or W, his initials ? as they've already shown a commitment by having those names in the first place.

Hits such as Starman, Golden Years, Ashes To Ashes, and Heroes followed, with a re-emergence in the mid-80s with the pop sounds of Let's Dance and China Girl. Then in 2013, came his latest re-incarnation, after a decade's silence. Ultimate Bowie pays tribute to the work of this global superstar, in a show that is visually stunning and vocally impressive. Ed Blaney takes the spotlight and leads an 8-piece band that takes us from Bowie's early years right up to the 21st century.
