The Snow Queen
Date: 17th November 2018

An Irresponsible Father's Guide to Parenting
Date: 1st December 2018
Details:  Laurence Clark: An Irresponsible Father’s Guide to Parenting

Growing up, Laurence never really thought about becoming a father. He never saw dads with cerebral palsy; which made him think he’d never be one. Besides, young Laurence self was way too selfish to take care of another human being. The most he’d ever managed was a cactus, and even that died from lack of water. He was far too in love with having a disposable income and going for a poo with no children watching.

But when he meets his wife, she states he’d better be prepared for the fact she wants babies… which is a pretty strong opening line for a first date! What follows is the hilarious, honest, warm story of two people with cerebral palsy traversing the ups and downs of parenthood.

If Laurence is an irresponsible father – an accusation from social media – then it’s nothing to do with being disabled! It’s probably more to do with balancing his wife’s crutches on his son’s baby walker to make him look like a Dalek!

Laurence starred in BBC1’s documentary We Won’t Drop the Baby and recently featured on The One Show. He’s been Shortlist’s Funniest New Comedian, an Amused Moose Edinburgh Laughter Awards finalist and is currently developing a sitcom for Channel 4.

John Otway
Date: 8th December 2018
Details:  Back in the austere 1950’s a schoolboy drank a bottle of ink and instantly became the centre of attention in the playground.
Now read on…..

Rock veteran John Otway dubbed himself “rock’n’roll’s greatest failure” after many unsuccessful attempts to produce a second hit single to follow his 1977 classic (Cor Baby, That’s) Really Free with Wild Willy Barrett.

However, a mere quarter century later, he was back on Top of The Pops with the wonderful disco pastiche, ‘Bunsen Burner’ and back in the charts as a birthday present from his adoring and patient fans.

And, more recently, his “Beware Of The Flowers Cause I’m Sure They’re Going To Get You Yeah” voted the seventh greatest lyric of all time in a BBC poll.

But that, of course, was not enough.

A couple of years ago John realised that live footage from the many concerts over the years, plus many TV appearances – and a failed world tour attempt – would make an entertaining documentary film. So he made one. Initially expecting a couple of humble screenings for fans, the film premiered at the Odeon, Leicester Square, was shown at Cannes – and at prestigious UK film festivals including Cambridge during it’s national tour.

2016 saw a remarkably successful Kickstarter appeal which raised over £40,000 for John Otway and the Big Band to record their first new album in many years on the island of Monserrat, whose famous studios hosted bands such as the Rolling Stones before being devastated by forces of nature, being a preferable option to Harlow.

The album ( strangely enough called ‘ Montserrat’ ) is available now on Red Bowler Records.

Expect madcap mayhem and some scintillating stunts from a man old enough to know better…..and also to be surprised at just what a showman and musician really lies underneath the tomfoolery.

‘He’s a cabaret act masquerading as a rock act. He is gleeful, anecdotal, funny and life-enhancing.’ Canterbury Fayre Review.

The Upbeat Beatles
Date: 14th December 2018
Details:  The Upbeat Beatles have been together for over seventeen years and have performed 3000 shows worldwide. With two hours of non-stop music – from She Loves You to I Am The Walrus and beyond – they will have you dancing in the aisles from the very beginning.

From the depths of the Cavern to the Apple roof top, through Beatlemania, America, Sgt Pepper to Abbey Road, their attention to detail will draw you into the world of the Beatles like no other show.

Breath-taking harmonies, punchy musicianship and an acute attention to detail make for an uncanny resemblance to the originals – plus a touch of good old scouse humour, of course!

With narrative and full multi-media presentation it doesn’t matter whether you are a Beatles fanatic or simply a lover of good music, you won’t want to miss this fantastic show.
