Twinkle Twinkle (2:30pm Performance)
Date: 29th April 2018
Details:  There are melodies that live in all of us. No one knows that more than Marty the puppy, whose songs and playtime with his Dad are the best part of his day.

But sometimes, you have to learn how to find the music inside yourself. Twinkle Twinkle is a beautiful adventure in music and light that features high quality puppetry, magical interaction and a gorgeous original score with live music-making for all.

This original tale of love, loss and light has been especially made for audiences aged 1 – 3 and its rich, near-wordless storytelling entrances toddlers and parents alike.

Developed in association with Tonic Theatre award-winner, Anna Newell, this third production for young audiences by Touched Theatre continues the company’s commitment to making emotionally literate original theatre for children.

Twinkle Twinkle takes the classic nursery rhyme and uses its ideas of melody and distance to explore resilience for the very young and the ways we can learn to carry the light of those we love inside ourselves, even when we are apart.

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

£7/£5

The Prince Experience
Date: 18th May 2018
Details:  In 2016, we lost Prince, one of the most prolific and controversial musical icons of all time. It seemed that there was nothing this man couldn’t do, and because there was only one PRINCE, there is only one Prince tribute band, The Prince Experience.

The nine piece Prince Experience comprises some amazing musicians who all have one thing in common – they are huge fans of the music. This love is clear for all to see and hear when the band take to the stage.

Fast becoming known as ‘the tightest live band out there’ The Prince Experience play with a passion that is undeniable. Jaw breaking high notes, screams and high heels, wailing guitar solos, Linn drums, loops, funky bass, live horns and that famous ‘purple’ sense of humour.

Only The Prince Experience have the audacity and the musicianship to do justice to the music of the purple genius and it all comes together in an incredible onstage explosion of hits. From the floor shaking 1999, through the era defining Purple Rain soundtrack right through the hits of the 90s, and beyond. One thing is for sure, you’d better bring your comfortable shoes, because you WILL be dancing. Celebrate the music of Prince with The Prince Experience.

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

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!
