Al Murray - The Pub Landlord
One Man, One Guvnor

Monday 9 Feb, 7.30pm
Twenty years ago Britain’s favourite publican embarked on his one man mission as the King Cnut of Common Sense, holding back a tide of bottled beer and ninny state nonsense. To celebrate this milestone - 20 years at the lager top - join this icon with his brand new show.

“Al Murray has become a bona fide British institution” The Independent



  Simon Amstell
To Be Free

Thursday 19 Feb, 8.00pm
Following sold out residencies in New York and London, Simon embarks on his fourth international stand up tour. With intense vulnerability and troubling honesty, he explores freedom, joy, love, death, adventure, art, peace, sex, regret, success, eating, suffering, dreaming, healing, forgiving and more. Simon (Grandma’s House, Never Mind the Buzzcocks) has won two British Comedy Awards, an RTS Award, a Broadcast Award, a Chortle Award and has been nominated for a BAFTA. Recommended 15+

“has a gift for taking a social norm and gently mocking it until it seems utterly ridiculous. Highly literate... an endearing mixture of offhanded candour and sharp wit. Such ease and understatement makes him very good company” The New York Times

£21 (£18 conc)

Fascinating Aida
Charm Offensive

Saturday 28 Feb, 7.30pm
Following a sold-out 2013 tour, three Olivier Award nominations and over 10 million YouTube hits for Cheap Flights (their infamous anthem to budget air travel), Dillie Keane, Adele Anderson and Liza Pulman celebrate over 30 years of Fascinating Aïda with their terrific new show Charm Offensive. Expect topical new songs hot off the press, plus some outrageous old favourites, as Fascinating Aïda continue to grow old disgracefully.
