Gimme Abba - 20th Anniversary Tour
Date: 26th April 2019

“ABBA have left a fine musical legacy, and it’s in good hands.”

Gimme ABBA have been performing this fabulous tribute for over 19 years, and in 2019 they will be celebrating their 20th anniversary!

After 20 years of performances, Gimme Abba are now established as one of the best loved UK tributes to Abba! This unique stage show has developed over the years into more than just another ABBA tribute show, reproducing the charismatic stage presence of the flamboyant and glam front four.

This complete and superb ABBA show comes with a repertoire that draws from the greatest hits of Sweden’s most famous export. Totalling over two-hours, this performance is jam-packed with all the popular Abba songs and includes fascinating theatrical elements, many costume changes, choreographed dance routines and four-part vocal harmonies that come together to re-create that original ABBA party feel.

“The humour, energy and enjoyment generated on stage delights audiences” and provides a light hearted side to our ever evolving show, without compromising the integrity of the performance. This spectacular show will bring back memories of that golden ABBA era. This is not just another Abba tribute but a ‘truly complete and exciting Abba experience’ so what are you waiting for? Dust off those platforms! Put on those Flares! and come on our nostalgic trip back to the 70s. ‘Coming to a theatre near you’ this is a show not to be missed.

Abba’s music has stood the test of time and is a testament to the exceptional song writing of Benny and Björn, “being able to perform them for you is both a privilege and an honour, and one that we do not take lightly!” – Lawrence, Benny.
Since forming 20 years ago, Gimme ABBA have enjoyed theatre shows, concerts and festivals worldwide with performances in France, Holland, Germany, Cyprus, Malta, Spain, Brazil, Portugal and nationwide in the United Kingdom.

*Please Note – Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony.

MICK MILLER ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Comedy has evolved over the years and so has Mick Miller. He got his big break on ITV’s “New Faces” which was the premier talent show of its day. He became a household name when he was a regular on ITV’s “The Comedians” and has continued to work solidly ever since.

Nowadays, he is equally at home entertaining on board cruise ships, performing at Corporate Functions, Theatres, Cabaret Clubs and the new style Comedy Clubs. He also co-stars with Johnny Vegas in the cult BBC comedy show, “Ideal”.

BILLY PEARCE ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
A National treasure, and without doubt one of Britain's most talented and best loved comedians, multi award winner Billy Pearce, has won just about every comedy award going, including a British comedy award, Solo comedian of the year, and Best television comedy newcomer at the London Palladium. There are few stages upon which Billy has not appeared, and he's broken Box Office records at a number of National Theatres.

'In a live situation there is quite simply no one like him' (The Stage)

'Billy Pearce absolutely nails his stand-up routine, packed full of punchlines'

The Courtbetweeners
Date: 27th April 2019
Details:  After seeing the Courteeners smash T in the Park, Reading and the 2016 support slot to the Stone Roses the lads couldn’t believe that there wasn’t a tribute to this amazing band, they decided to do something about it.

Featuring songs from St Jude, Falcon and Anna enjoy the massive anthems of Courteeners with tracks such as The Opener and Are You In Love With A Notion, re-live the first album with Bide Your Time and Fallowfield Hillbilly and go crazy to crowd favourites like Not Nineteen Forever and What Took You So Long.

The only tribute to Courteeners in the UK and probably the world.
