Jimmy Carr: Terribly Funny

Jimmy’s brand new show contains jokes about all kinds of terrible things. 

Terrible things that might have affected you or people you know and love.

But they’re just jokes – they are not the terrible things. 

Having political correctness at a comedy show is like having health and safety at a rodeo. 

Now you’ve been warned, buy a ticket.

Bye Bye Baby - Saturday 4th May at 7.30pm

Bye Bye Baby is more than your average tribute band. They deliver a full theatre show covering the journey of the Four Seasons from the very beginning up until the Disco era and the rock and roll hall of fame. In fact a musical journey through the sounds of one of the most successful bands of all time. 

They perform 31 numbers in close 4 part harmony  ,with slick choreography and the recognisable falsetto this really sets the scene for a great night.

The show demonstrates the diversity and harmonic sounds as once performed by the great band themselves.

Each number has been carefully choreographed, giving their show a fresh look to the Four Seasons usual copycat version from the Jersey Boys.
