We’ve all had enough of that, so let’s put it all behind us and never speak of it again – there are far more important things to analyse. Well… they’re more important in Dave’s head anyway. “Hugely entertaining” **** The Times “Gorman creates real magic from the unlikeliest of sources.” **** The Mail on Sunday “Beautifully constructed.” **** The Arts Desk “Exquisitely constructed show from a comic who is at the top of his game.” **** The Evening Standard…

  • 2 March 2022 FISHERMAN’S FRIENDS

    They have nine albums to their name, two feature films, a stage musical, a book, a TV documentary, they’ve played for royalty and to tens of thousands of fans in sell-out tours year in year out… No, it’s not The Beatles, it’s not Slade, Take That or One Direction – it’s the Fisherman’s Friends!  Britain’s oldest boy band, combined age 401 (and three-quarters) – announce a string of dates for 2022/2023.  “We can’t wait to get out and about and sing live for our supper again – we love it,” says extravagantly moustachioed founding member and bass man Jon Cleave. A decade ago, The Fisherman’s Friends were persuaded to sign a million pound record deal that saw their album Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends go Gold as they became the first ever traditional folk act to land a UK top ten album.  And thanks to the small film with a big heart that shares their name, the story of the original Cornish buoy band is known around the world – bound by shared experience, for more than 30 years they have gathered on the Platt on the harbour in their native Port Isaac to sing the songs of the sea, songs that in some cases have been handed down for hundreds of years, songs that connect them to generations of Cornish fishermen that have come before them. The film’s sequel Fisherman’s Friends Two is released this June (2022). The story follows the group from…

  • 24 February 2022 AWFUL AUNTIE

    Awful Auntie by David Walliams, adapted for the outdoor stage by Heartbreak Productions, is a truly thrilling tale. Owls, ghosts, chases, escapes, motorcycle rides, and tiddlywinks all fill Stella’s days as she evades her menacing Aunt and saves the family home. The new playground at the orphanage is finally complete, and we can’t wait to celebrate with you. The orphanage was founded by Stella Saxby, who some of you may remember. Her parents were killed in a car crash in 1933, leaving her an orphan, all alone with her Awful Auntie. And when we say awful, we mean awful. Aunt Alberta and her best friend Wagner, a vicious Bavarian owl, tried everything they could to torment Stella into signing over the deeds to Saxby Hall. But Stella, with the help of her friend Soot (the ghost of a chimney sweep, but friends come in all shapes and sizes, don’t they?) fought off Aunt Alberta, saved Saxby Hall, and gifted it to be used as an orphanage. Make sure you bring a blanket or chair to sit on, weather-appropriate gear, and a picnic, as the tale could take some time to tell, and storytelling can be hungry work.  …
