My Life Story in Words & Music
Friday 24 May, 7.30pm
The Madness frontman presents a hilarious and moving one man tour-de-force. The death of his beloved cat on his fiftieth birthday triggers a personal quest for Suggs to discover what happened to the father he never knew. It’s a journey back to his childhood on the tough streets of 1970's Soho and his first appearance on Top Of The Pops at the age of eighteen. Hold on to your seats as Suggs plummets through the trap door of failure. Then trampolines back up to catch the passing trapeze of show business success. With musical accompaniment and uncalled for interjection from Deano, his loyal manservant-cum-pianist.
Celebrating Great Film
Starts Saturday 25 May
We love films… and we know you do too.
This is why we are giddy with excitement at being able to bring you a regular series of special movie events on the big screen in our main auditorium.
Sometimes it’ll be a specially selected double-bill, other times it might be a movie marathon day or even a big, dumb Hollywood comedy, simply because it’s fantastic. Sometimes we might even throw in a treat with the ticket price. No set rules, just sharing the movie love in a big screen way.
See our CINEMA page for full details and watch out for more films as they're added.

Mr Drayton’s Record Player
Dark Side of The Moon - Pink Floyd
Tuesday 28 May, 7.30pm
When was the last time you listened to a complete album, end to end? Not on one of your new-fangled MP3-thingies, but dropping the needle down on good old warm vinyl. Comedian, music-aficionado, know-it-all and BBC Producer/Presenter Mr Drayton, offers you the opportunity to enjoy classic albums the way they were meant to be heard: in their entirety, played start-to-finish from his trusty record player.
With a daft bloke fronting the whole thing, each presentation is accompianed by a slide show, a light hearted quiz (where top prizes can be won) and post-album banter in Gala’s Studio. Relax with a drink or two, sit back and wallow in classic sounds. Mmmm, nice.
