    Mumbo-Jumbo present 'No Hit Wonders' with musicians Oliver Carpenter, Chris Lomas and Phil Bond. They play nine instruments between them, create complex tight harmonies and some great songs despite the title! If that's not enough… everyone gets a kazoo! Expect to hear: the song that nearly made it to the Eurovision Song Contest; the song written for the Mavericks but in the end they didn't record it; the reasons why they are twice nominated in the British Blues Awards but are yet to win one and dependent on the season, the four new Christmas singles yet to set the seasonal airwaves on fire.

  • 4 April 2020 to 1 January 1900

    One of great unsung heroines of British jazz, Chesterfield-based Wendy Kirkland presents her critically acclaimed tribute to female jazz pianist-singers like herself; fresh arrangements of songs made famous by wonderful jazzwomen from Nina Simone, Eliane Elias and Shirley Horn to Tania Maria and Dena DeRose. A huge touring hit, this is a varied and vastly entertaining evening of jazz song brought to new life by Wendy's highly accomplished pianism and warm, eloquent voice - likened to Blossom Dearie with hints of Diana Krall - and the superb musicianship of her top-class band.

    IFor this genuinely unique one-man show, funny man and self-proclaimed anarchist chef George Egg brings more than a few unusual ingredients to the table - namely power tools, gardening equipment and an office supply or two - in a performance that combines laugh-out-loud stand-up comedy with ingenious live cooking demonstrations, culminating in a surprisingly wonderful tasting session. Celebrated by audiences and critics alike, the award-winning Egg brings his technical wizardry, showmanship and wry humour to a cookery show like no other, one which BBC MasterChef critic Jay Rayner simply called 'brilliant'.

  • 4 April 2020 to 1 January 1900

    Manchester's prodigious folk foursome brings sizable skills, gorgeous three-part harmonies and endlessly inventive arrangements to their fiery and virtuosic brand of folk-fusion. Interweaving traditional folk (and simply stunning clog dancing) with a wide range of influences from jazz to chamber music to Americana to Latin, they create a rich and distinctive tapestry of sound, from the sublimely wistful to the irresistibly dynamic. Thoroughly delightful

    'Man and boy, Jeeves, I have been in some tough spots in my time, but this one wins the mottled oyster.' Channelling the style of the brilliantly funny spoofs The 39 Steps and The Play That Goes Wrong, this joyous and anarchic Olivier award-winning reimagining of classic P.G. Wodehouse - by 'one of Britain's best small theatres' (The Telegraph) - is ideal for lovers of farce and fast-paced comedy-theatre. Three superb actors hurl themselves from character to character as they race to tell of the rather spectacular misadventures of aristocratic man-about-town Bertie Wooster (and his unflappable valet, Jeeves). Wonderful nonsense, wonderful escapism.

    Swing is king. Kiriki Club makes the party happen, bringing a raw, energetic performance style to an eclectic brew of vintage 1940’s/50’s jumpin' R&B, speak-easy swing, fabulous rock ‘n’ roll, dance-floor fillers, surprising versions of pop classics, and exotic sounds from around the world. Bringing together a stellar line up of multi-lingual multi-instrumentalists from Wales, Portugal, Austria and Birmingham they harvest the music of their homelands to mesmerising effect, with blistering musicianship, vocal acrobatics and luscious harmonies that never fail to pack the dance floor. Brilliant fun, they rock it!
