The Damned United – 10th April

1974. Brian Clough, the enfant terrible of British football, tries to redeem his managerial career and reputation.  He wants to do this by winning the European Cup with his new team. Leeds United. The team he has openly despised for years, the team he hates and which hates him. Don Revie’s Leeds.

Originally co-produced with the West Yorkshire Playhouse, The Damned United takes you inside the tortured mind of a genius slamming up against his limits, and brings to life the beauty and brutality of football, the working man’s ballet.

Callaghan – 19th April

“Breathtaking…absolutely incredible” is how BBC London’s Gaby Roslin described a recent live performance by Callaghan.

Originally from the UK Callaghan moved to the USA in summer 2010 to record and tour with Grammy-Nominee Shawn Mullins and has been playing live and building her audience ever since.
Playing piano and guitar she delivers a stunning vocal which earns frequent comparisons with artists like Sarah McLachlan and Emmy Lou Harris.
Her songwriting chronicles the stories, experiences and emotions which are part of everyone’s lives.

Jess Robinson – 28th April

Join multi award-winner and Britain’s Got Talent 2017 semi-finalist Jess Robinson for an evening of spot-on celebrity impressions, musical comedy and stunning vocal gymnastics. Like a wonderfully malfunctioning jukebox, Jess and her incredible vocals will take you on a dizzying journey through hilarious musical mash-ups!

Highly Sprung – 26th April

Get ready to go clubbing. You’re in for the night of your life. This high-energy physical theatre performance takes you inside a nightclub where three teenage friends embark on a journey of love, loss and self-discovery. Come and be immersed in a frantic, energy fuelled production of dance, music, aerial movement and storytelling.

Back To The Future: 80s VS 90s with Silent Disco – 16th June

It’s time to do pop battle again, so get a gang together, get dressed up and head along for a party night jam-packed with the very best tunes from those two massive pop decades. Plus try out the Silent Disco in the bar.

Coconut – 27th June

Ever feel like you are constantly disappointing people?

Meet Rumi, a British Pakistani woman who’s referred to as a ‘Coconut’ (brown on the outside, white on the inside). Born and brought up as a Muslim, Rumi spends more time enjoying fine wine and bacon than being at the mosque.

When she meets Simon, a white guy, she hopes that his decision to convert to Islam will be enough to keep everyone happy. However, as Simon begins to explore his faith, Rumi’s world spins off its axis in ways she could never have predicted.

Marcus Brigstocke – 7th September

A new stand up show from multi-award winning comedian Marcus Brigstocke.

Snowflake, Nazi, Remoaner, Trot, Libtard, Brextremist, Feminazi, Piers Morgan…
As we divide each other up into more and more unpleasant categories of evil, it is time to establish, once and for all, what is good and what is bad.
