Neo-classical post rockers We Stood Like Kings bring a new live soundtrack to the American
cult movie KOYAANISQATSI, directed by Godfrey
Reggio and released in 1982. It explores the relationship between man, nature and technology.
This 4-piece piano-based band hailing from Brussels has become a reference act in live soundtracks to silent cinema. Three projects have shaped We Stood Like Kings’ story so far. Together, these form a vibrant trilogy portraying two empires already lost –
BERLIN 1927, USSR 1926 – and a third one – USA 1982 – that seems to be running headlong towards its own destruction.
We Stood Like Kings will do anything to challenge the expected and successfully mix modern instrumental rock music with the treasures of yesterday’s cinema.
After two consecutive sold out shows, Europe’s most successful urban comedy event returns to Bristol by popular demand. The only comedy show where comedians battle live on stage. Featuring heavyweights KAT MTV, the hilarious KEVIN J plus more.
This time we are mixing it up, after two battles with Jamaica Vs Africa, we now bring you Jamaica Vs England, just imagine the banter.
Not only do comedians perform tailor made stand up comedy routines to the theme of the show, they also battle each other to win points for the team they represent.
Nothing is held back and comedians go all out, this show has sold out in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Nottingham, Cardiff, Sheffield and Leicester.
Get ready to cry with laughter, nothing is held back and comedians go for the jugular.
This event is guaranteed to sell out, don’t delay, buy your tickets early.
Paul Zerdin and his dysfunctional puppet family are back by popular demand with a brand-new UK tour. As well as starring everyone’s favourites Sam, Albert and Baby, there’ll be his new bodyguard, an urban fox, some hilarious audience participation - and a talking ice cream - all using a mixture of master puppeteering, state of the art animatronic wizardry and a unique blend of edgy comedy.
It's a quirk of British theatre that a man can get a standing ovation for spending the best part of 75 minutes on a stage talking to himself. It goes without saying that Paul’s skills are top notch – there's not a hint of movement from his lips and he has a strong command of a range of different voices but it’s his control of the puppets and sense of timing that brings his characters to life!
Don’t miss out on your chance to see the winner of America’s Got Talent and one of Britain’s finest entertainers.
‘’The best ventriloquist Britain has discovered for many years...’’ The Stage
“If you think the words ‘brilliant’ and ‘ventriloquist’ have no place in the same sentence, go and see Paul Zerdin for some brutal re-education” Evening Standard

The Brand New Tribute Show celebrating the Life of West Country Legend Adge Cutler, ‘ the King of the Wurzels’ and ‘Bard of Avonmouth’, as seen through the eyes of West Country Comedy Star and Panto favourite ANDY FORD.
The show is bursting with all the popular Adge Cutler songs together with a gurt dollop of West Country humour from Andy who played Adge to critical acclaim in the 2017 Comedy Musical ‘Drink Up Thy Cider’ at the Redgrave Theatre in Bristol.
We trace Adge’s story from the Streets of Nailsea North Somerset to National and International fame, with more than a sprinkling of popular Cider Songs in there for good measure!! There had never been anything like Adge before…. He was the pioneer of localized musical humour prior to Billy Connelly, Jasper Carrot, Mike Harding or Max Boyce. He became a West Country Superstar and is still loved today 45 years after his tragic death in a car crash near the Severn Bridge.
The story is interspersed with hilarious gags, comedy sketches and audience participation; there won’t be a dry beer glass in the house as Andy takes us on a rollercoaster ride of pure West Country Madness…Oooh Arrr!
The show features live Band, ‘The Scrumpies’ and Andy Ford all in Wurzel Style costumes with the odd hay bale and Milk Churn for decoration! It consists of two halves, 45mins for Act One and 60mins approx. for Act Two with an interval of 20 mins.
It’s time to celebrate, so get on board this West Country Special…. Drink up thee Cider…. and whatever you do…Don’t tell I tell ‘Ee.

My Last Supper
With Jay Rayner
Imagine you are about to die.
You have one meal left.
What are you going to have?
It’s the question award-winning restaurant critic, MasterChef judge and writer Jay Rayner has been asked most often by audiences across the UK. It happened so often that he decided the time had come to investigate the concept of the last supper and why it intrigues us so. Is it because of the opportunity it presents us with to let your appetites run riot? Or is it because it’s a greedy way in which to tell the story of your own life? And if so, what would a man like Jay Rayner, who for two decades has made a living eating out in restaurants, choose to put on the menu?
In this barnstorming new show, based on his new book, Rayner investigates our fascination with last suppers and tells the stories of the killer dishes that would end up on his table: how he was introduced to oysters by his late mother, how he almost burnt down a hotel because of his love for snails in bubbling garlic butter and of the many ways by which the mighty pig has fed him over the years. Plus, he’ll get the audience to design their own last meal. My Last Supper follows the success of his sell out shows, My Dining Hell and The Ten Food Commandments, which have taken audiences by storm across the UK, Australia, New Zealand and the US.
My Last Supper with Jay Rayner. It’s a show to die for.

Such a familiar tale - yet so strange and full of wonder. A young woman is expecting, three magi are researching the heavens and two shepherd children are bored out of their heads minding the sheep - well nothing interesting ever happens around Bethlehem in December, does it?! Wise men (and not so wise men), talking sheep, angels, a shepherd family, camels, a horrible Herod, and carols (old and new) all go to make up a magical retelling of the story of the first Christmas.
From the author of the well-loved children's book DEAR ZOO, Rod Campbell
Santa is determined to deliver the Christmas present to our little hero Sarah. But he doesn't get it right straight away! With the help of his cheeky Elf, he finally settles on something 'perfect', just in time for Christmas Eve.

Queen were one of the most iconic and influential bands in music history. Pure Queen recognise it is an honour to play their music and they do so with great respect, pride and passion. Join them for an evening of celebrating the musical legacy of Queen.

Iain Stirling (Love Island and Taskmaster) is taking his ‘extremely
funny’ (Telegraph) comedy back on the road for his biggest ever
nationwide tour, following his 2018 sell-out smash U OK HUN? x.
Do you ever wonder how people manage to be normal? Iain does. So much so
he’s written a brand new stand-up show about it. Join the ‘star of
comedy’ (The i) as he explores his inability to function in the most
basic of public settings, social media’s constant pressure to “live your
best life” and that one time a man stole his shoes.
Having sold out his Edinburgh fringe run in advance for the second time,
Iain can currently be seen on our screens hosting the third series of
hit comedy gameshow Iain Stirling’s CelebAbility (ITV2). He recently
starred in his own Comedy Central Live special which launched the latest
series and has also been seen on The Comedy Bus, Drunk History and
Russell Howard’s Stand Up Central (all Comedy Central), Virtually Famous
(E4), Russell Howard's Good News and Sweat the Small Stuff (both BBC
Three) and Fake Reaction and Safe Word (both ITV2).

Born in Georgia in 1944, the legendary Gladys Knight began singing with her siblings at age 8, calling themselves "The Pips." The group opened for many R&B legends in the 1950s before heading to Motown. There started the legend that became Gladys Knight & The Pips.
In 1996, Gladys Knight & the Pips were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and in 2007, Knight received the Society of Singers ELLA Award at which time she was declared the ‘Empress of Soul’. She is currently listed on Rolling Stone's list of the Greatest Singers of All Time.
Capturing the essence of the Multi Award Winning Ms Gladys Knight, Hayley Ria Christian portrays her, capturing the true magic that Gladys Knight provides on stage.
Featuring the hit songs like ‘Baby Don't Change Your Mind', 'Help Me Make it Through the Night', 'Try to Remember/The Way We Were', 'Part Time Love', 'Licence To Kill' and her signature tune 'Midnight Train To Georgia'.
This production is definitely not a tribute but a faithful portrayal and pays homage to the Empress of Soul…..the one and only Ms GLADYS KNIGHT.
“Simply one of the most high-quality productions and portrayals I have seen.”
