DAVID STARKEY. HENRY VIII: THE FIRST BREXITEER?
Henry VIII, like a colossus, bestrides the history of our country. He invented the idea of British uniqueness; in fact, the Reformation could be defined as the first Brexit, when his ministers devised the doctrine of parliamentary sovereignty. In this talk David Starkey draws on his unique knowledge of Henry’s reign to examine his tumultuous personal life, which pitted religion against politics as brutally as in our own age of Isis, through to the Grand Tourists who bought European culture with British money, all offering so very many parallels with the Brexit situation we find ourselves in today.
She's Merkel To His Trump. He's Boris to her Theresa. Two of Britain's finest impressionists come together on one bill to make sense (and nonsense) of a world where Boris Johnson is Foreign Secretary, Donald Trump is US President, and Brexit means Brexit. Good luck with that.
Featuring personalities from Farage to Lumley, Diane Abbott to Fiona Bruce and the sublime to Jacob Rees Mogg. Over 30 characters for the price of 2 (3 at weekends). A unique mix of impressions and satire from the stars of Bremner, Bird and Fortune and Dead Ringers

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed…

FLEETWOOD BAC are the world’s first and best Fleetwood Mac Tribute Band, endorsed by Mick Fleetwood himself, the only Mac tribute to authentically replicate the classic 'Rumours' line-up.
Over the last few years they have received rave reviews from 'The Stage' newspaper, the U.K.s leading Fleetwood Mac fansites, the official Stevie Nicks website; and from ecstatic audiences wherever the band played, wowing audiences as far afield as Dubai, St. Tropez, the Cayman Islands and Monte Carlo, and recently selling out the world-famous Minack Theatre in Cornwall.
Fleetwood Bac have also been rated by The Times newspaper as one of the U.K.'s top 5 tributes, alongside The Bootleg Beatles, Bjorn Again and the Counterfeit Stones.
Fans include original Mac bassist and biographer Bob Brunning, who joined the band several times on stage, and Peter Green's official biographer Martin Celmins.
The sound, the look, the mystical atmosphere and on-stage chemistry are all portrayed with the passion and energy that got the seal of approval from ‘Big Daddy’ Mick, and built up an excellent reputation amongst Mac fans through numerous tours, festival appearances, corporate events and TV and radio slots all over the U.K. and Europe.
The Fleetwood Bac show focuses on the ‘Rumours’ era of the band (still the 5th biggest-selling album of all time). It also features several songs from the Peter Green days, plus some of Stevie’s biggest solo hits, in either a theatrical 2-hour show, including costume-changes and an acoustic section, or a one-hour Greatest Hits Show, specially tailored for corporate events.
Songs featured (all UK and US hit singles) include: Dreams, Don’t Stop, Go Your Own Way, You Make Loving Fun, Tusk, Gypsy, Everywhere, Oh Well, Rhiannon, Little Lies, Black Magic Woman, Seven Wonders, Say You Love Me, Big Love, Oh Diane, Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around, Albatross, Sara, Man Of The World, Hold Me, Green Manalishi, Need Your Love So Bad, The Chain etc…
Mari Wilson first arrived on the scene in the early 80s with her skyscraper beehive hairdo bizarre sense of fashion and fully choreographed twelve piece band The Wilsations. Mari’s live shows were spoken about as an event - pure entertainment. A mainstay of Top Of The Pops (and an avid collector of Tupperware), Mari released six hit singles, the biggest being ʻJust What I Always Wantedʼ and ʻCry Me A Riverʼ, both taken from her classic album ʻShowpeopleʼ.
Since then Mari has never stopped touring, writing and recording.
Nominated in 2017 for a Daytime Emmy Award for Best Original Song for her composition, Moon and Back for U.S. TV Show The Young and the Restless, the last few years have been an eventful time:-
Sensational sell-out shows with her 8 piece band The New Wilsations at numerous summer festivals, Wilton’s Music Hall and Bush Hall where Mari was joined by special guest Marc Almond. Mari returned the favour by performing a duet with Marc as Soft Cell’s surprise guest at the O2. She’s also been touring as guest singer with Heaven 17.
Mari’s critically acclaimed 2016 album Pop Deluxe, (her album of songs previously made famous by Dusty, Cilla, Petula and Sandie) continues to be a big part of her fabulous show, together with her well known hits and a few surprises.
Mari’s audience is mesmerised by not only her voice but her spontaneous wit and natural storytelling, testament to 38 years of touring.

Living Spit return with a brand new show......Giants of Science!
Howard Coggins knows nothing about Science.
Stu Mcloughlin knows even less.
Nevertheless, they have agreed to give a lecture on the subject, and after enlisting the help of the smartest scientific sages of the ages, that’s just what they aim to do.
But even with the likes of Albert Einstein, Galileo, Isaac Newton, Mary Anning and…um…Kriss Akabusi along for the ride, the chances of the dim-witted duo making it through the evening with any sense of dignity remaining intact seems less than likely.
Still, they’re determined, like a pair of Atoms missing a couple of electrons, to stay positive.
With jarring jokes, pitiful puppetry, and the silliest of scientific songs, you can expect this raucous romp through the hilarious history of scientific stupidity to be…well, if nothing else, thoroughly entertaining.
It might even be…Scien-triffic!
Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly both grew up in the same part of Texas. They recorded their earlier work in the Norman Petty Studios in Clovis, New Mexico, even at one point recording the same songs 'An empty cup’ (and a broken date) as well as ‘You’ve Got Love’ both written by Roy Orbison.
The two Artists brought a unique Texas influence into their music and through their creative writing for both an individual sound was born!
Roy Orbison went on to write so many songs including ‘Only the Lonely’ & ‘Crying’, and Buddy Holly in his short Career showed his writing talents would of gone on to match any songwriter in the world, which earned him a place (13th) in ‘The Rolling Stone’ ‘100 Greatest Artist of all Time’!
Darren Page’s vocal abilities have brought a reputation that always delivers a quality to entertain, but Darren’s secret love in music is Roy Orbison which sits very comfortable in Darren Page’s voice range.
Marc Robinson has played the part of Buddy Holly all over the world and all over Great Britain; he performed in ‘Buddy ‘The Musical and numerous other shows, with partners he founded ‘In Dreams & ‘Rockin on Heavens Door’, he also has many TV appearances to his name.
Marc’s latest show ‘Through the Decades with Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly’ will deliver a feel good factor with all the hits from…I Drove all Night, Mean Woman Blues, Pretty Woman, Heartbeat, Peggy Sue, It Doesn’t Matter Anymore & Raining in my Heart, to name but a few!
After playing in Europe and all over Great Britain Darren Page joined Marc Robinson, they both have dedicated their careers to Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly, this two-hour uplifting Rock n Roll Show is full of pure nostalgia with all their Hits and a few earlier ones too!
Will Rock n Roll ever Die? That’ll be the Day!
