For those looking for a show to make them laugh out loud, there’s a host of big-name comedians to choose from: Shaparak Khorsandi with IT was the 90s – the decade when there was nothing else to do than party; Richard Digance, comedian and songwriter and BAFTA-nominated artist; Larry Dean with his Fudnut Tour and the welcome return of Rich Hall with his Hoedown Deluxe – the musical and comedic locomotion continues.

For something more theatrical, why not enjoy a haunting and moving love story from Peter Pan creator, JM Barrie with the story of Mary Rose or the classic, Great Expectations from perennial favorites, Hotbuckle Theatre.

Music is always a must on site, with lots of original music from True Strays, with their mix of American rock and blues, or for something completely different, Tango Calor – an exciting trio that will take you on a journey from the night clubs from Buenos Aires to the salons of Paris with their contemporary tango music. Not to mention tribute shows and big sounds from some of the greats, including Talon, Cloudbusting and Dirty DC.
