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.

Doors: 7:30pm

£15

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
