Limehouse Lizzy
Date: 25th May 2018
Details:  Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide. The band have also added a tribute into their show to ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist (and world renowned solo artist) Gary Moore.

From their Official PRS award, performing for Virgin Atlantic in Barbados, T.V. appearances (BBC 2’s ‘Arena’ amongst others), and to actually being recruited to record and tour by members of the original Thin Lizzy, Limehouse Lizzy enter their 21st year with their most explosive show and critically-acclaimed line-up yet.

Despite international tours (UAE, Germany and previously USA, Scandinavia, Caribbean etc.), corporate clients (Mitsubishi, NatWest) and even book appearances (The Rocker, Send In The Clones), they’ve shoehorned a co-headline tour with tribute giants Livewire into 2015, along with their own stand-alone tour, in what will be an exhausting year-long schedule. The boys are back!

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

Keepy Uppy (2:30pm Performance)
Date: 27th May 2018
Details:  A silent pitch, a still football.

Footie strips, shin pads, shiny boots.

A kick of the ball, it flies, it soars… it scores …….. GOAL!

Our journey begins with grass stained knees, Astro Turf and champions. Keepy Uppy tells an extraordinary tale of love, devotion and family, set in the world of all things football and undeniable team spirit.

Join tutti frutti as they celebrate the joy of the beautiful game and ignite children’s imagination with visual and physical storytelling.

Keepy Uppy is a play for the 2018 world cup year, for football fans, children and families. With few words and bold physicality, fab footie moves, flicks, sidesteps and original live music.

‘Those looking for a magical and thought-provoking early experience of the wonder and power of theatre should treat themselves to tutti frutti’- British Theatre Guide

‘Leeds-based tutti frutti has a reputation as one of the most inspired ensembles specialising in work for very young children’- The Guardian

Doors for this event open at 2pm and the performance starts at 2:30pm.

£7/£5

The Smiths Ltd
Date: 8th September 2018
Details:  The Smiths Ltd was formed in Manchester, UK the hometown of The Smiths.

After an extensive search to find the perfect Morrissey, the band played their first gig in Manchester to an audience of avid Smiths fans. The response was spectacular and the band now plays at venues and festivals all over the UK.

If you never saw The Smiths then this is your chance to experience the thrill of those great songs played live. If you were lucky enough to see them first time around then prepare to relive that excitement again.

Committed to getting the same energy that Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce had onstage together, the band are also obsessed about getting that live sound just right.

With an authenticity and provenance that’s hard to beat The Smiths Ltd are the ultimate tribute.

The Smiths meant everything to a generation… To us they still do.

“Brilliant Smiths tribute band, they are amazing!” – Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets)

“The Smiths Ltd are a class act. They are indistinguishable from The Smiths.” – North West End

“I may have missed The Smiths the first time around, but after last night’s show I felt that I was really there back in 1983!” – The Hype Media.

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

Abigail's Party
Date: 13th September 2018
Details:  Doors: 7.00pm / Onstage: 7.30pm

Let us take you back to a spring evening in April 1977: Abba are number one in the charts, Red Rum wins the Grand National for the third time, the Queen begins her Silver Jubilee celebrations and 15-year old Abigail throws a party. To escape the loud music and teenage angst Abigail’s mum, Susan takes refuge with Beverly and Laurence, her middle-class neighbours. As the gin and tonic and Bacardi and coke flows, good-will, clichés and small-talk turn into quarrels, squabbles and chaos as tensions rise and the Suburbia dream is shattered.

From the pen of Mike Leigh Abigail’s Party will take you to a simpler time and have you chuckling into your Pina Colada.

*Please Note – Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult.

£12
