    Jenny Eclair: Sixty

    Jenny Eclair: Sixty

    Priority booking opens to Members on Friday 4 September at 10am. Tickets are available for general sale on Friday 11 September at 10am.

    Having hit 60 (but still a year younger than Madonna), Jenny Eclair AKA ‘The Face of Vagisan’ confronts a new decade of decrepitude. Now that it takes 20 minutes of scrolling down to find her DOB when she’s filling in forms online, should she celebrate or crawl into a hole?

    What will her 60’s hold for this 1960’s babe and is it a legal requirement to buy Nordic walking poles?

    PS, ‘I’m carrying quite a lot of excess lock down weight, which you can feel free to discuss behind my back during the interval’.

    Love Jenny x

    Suggs- a Life in the Realm of Madness

    Suggs- a Life in the Realm of Madness

    Due to huge popular demand, after his first tour-de-force, smash hit, sell out tours with ‘My Life Story’, Suggs is treading the boards again.

    If the first show was about how on Earth he got there, Suggs: What a King Cnut is about the surprises that awaited him when he did. Vertigo on the roof of Buckingham Palace, nearly blowing the closing ceremony of the Olympics, the embarrassing stuff that happened at Glastonbury. Things have gone a smidge surreal since the Madness frontman was a twelve year old in shorts on the tough streets of North London.Constantly expecting that inevitable tap on the shoulder to hear ‘what are you doing here, Sunshine?’ How has he got this far? In this business you can be washed up at any minute. How has he managed to get away with it for so long?

    Fame is a tightrope and Suggs has fallen off many times.

    With help from Deano his trusty pianist, he tells his story in words and music with the help of some Madness classics and a couple more what he wrote all on himself.

    Lucy Porter: Be Prepared

    TV favourite Lucy returns with another fantastic stand-up show.

    At Brownies, Lucy thought she’d be prepared for anything as long as she had her emergency 10p for a phone box, and knew how to tie a Fisherman’s knot.

    Life turned out to be slightly more complicated than Brown Owl let on.

    ‘A treat from start to finish’ – The Herald
