Geoff Norcott: Taking Liberties // sat 25 apr

Beyond left/right party politics and Brexit, Geoff Norcott has realised the main thing that motivates his political persuasion is that he hates being told what to do. Whether it's Eurocrats, ministers, cultural icons or his wife of 15 years, Geoff just can't stand anyone having power over him.

A Night at La Danse Paradiso

The Dancehouse Theatre

Intrigue and excitement, love and romance combine in this new and exciting fusion of dance, song and drama with music from Rent, Can Can, Moulin Rouge, American in Paris, Gypsy, Funny Face, Nine and La Boheme.

Set in Paris in 2019, Tony a painter, Elena a mime artist and Chase an American song writer live in a ramshackle attic flat but face a penniless New Year's Eve unless their busking can pay for champagne to welcome in the new decade. The city is buzzing with anticipation as the most exclusive club La Danse Paradiso is opening and the Russian dancer Selena will star. But all is not as it seems...

This performance may contain material unsuitable for younger children.

Beyond The Joke reviews John Shuttleworth's back. And his new tour.

John will be joining us this Friday for the Manchester leg of his tour John Shuttleworth’s Back, with scant tickets left you best get a hurry on if your want to join us!

John Shuttleworth's back. In every sense. This is the title of his current tour and it also refers to his latterday lumber problems that have been giving him a right bit of pain. It also, handily, refers to the fact that after looking for a while like he was settling into cosy old age and coasting a...

Preacher Lawson plus Special Guests // thu 16 apr

With smartly crafted material, unabashedly physical sense of humour, and flair for impressions (his high-spirited pastor character is vivid proof of that) Preacher Lawson is the kind of performer whose energy cannot be contained by any stage, and that includes America's Got Talent!

In 2017, television's most popular talent contest transformed Lawson into comedy's next superstar, introducing him to the wider audience he's deserved since he first began making fans in his hometowns of Memphis and Orlando.

Hello. We hope everyone out there is alright.
We don’t want to make this about us, because it’s not, it’s about you.
You are loved. You are wanted. You are important.

The number for Samaritans is 116 123.
Just give them a call if you need to talk.

Yesterday’s news is horrendous. Tell someone you love them today. Don’t wait. Be kind.
