    The kids have flown the nest so it's time to downsize. Contracts are about to be exchanged and packing is underway. Nothing can go wrong. But storm clouds gather overhead. And then the doorbell rings. Set in a 1990's kitchen extension with a boiling kettle as a side character, this is a warm, compassionate, witty, sad and brilliantly executed observational comedy capturing the essence of middle-class family life. The award-winning Ginny Davis is on impressive and endearing form in this one-woman tour de force, vividly telling the story with a lot of humour and not a little refreshing cynicism. Brilliantly accurate, touching and laugh out loud funny.

    When it comes to virtuoso work on the harp the Irish player Maire Ni Chathasaigh is in a class of her own. Matched against the thrilling guitar of Chris Newman, 'one of the UK's greatest guitarists' (BBC Radio 2), they are a 'truly electrifying combination' (The Stage). Here they blend gorgeous traditional Celtic music, sizzling Irish reels, hot jazz improvisation, bluegrass and baroque into a spellbinding musical treat. And with masterly stagecraft and introductions simultaneously informative and hilarious, this is a remarkable and genuinely uplifting show.

    Do you believe in ghosts? Over 30 years ago, director and performer Gareth Nicholl's family home was haunted by a rather playful poltergeist. Cupboard doors would open, Madonna records would spring into life in the wee small hours; the final straw, however, came when the family pack of Kit Kats disappeared… Using family heirlooms, iconic 80s toys, interviews, photographs and real-life home videos on stage, Gareth sets out to get to the bottom of this paranormal mystery; what was really going on? Inspired and fantastic fun to watch, this is both a hugely entertaining 'true' story of things that go bump in the night, and a wonderfully touching nostalgia trip to the 80s in all its really-totally-awesome 'good=bad' glory.

    In a career spanning four decades, the formidable guitar virtuoso Eduardo Niebla is one of the most potent forces in flamenco-jazz fusion.

Here Eduardo performs in his internationally acclaimed guitar duo with Matthew Robinson, the astonishing interplay between the two casting a deep, engrossing spell over the audience. A spellbinding evening 'bursting with obvious passion and verve' (The Spectator).
