HARRY HILL – SAUSAGE TIME
Friday 8th – Saturday 9th February
The self-styled floppy-collared loon is back with a live show that promises incontrovertible proof that God exists. Joined by showband ‘The Harry’s’, there’s a section exclusively for Tongans, a chance to catch up on Harry’s Nan’s latest ailments, the legendary Stouffer the Cat and a debut solo stand-up sport by Gary, Harry’s son from his first marriage and recognisable for his role as Alan Sugar in Harry Hill’s TV Burp. There’ll be expert-whistler-of-chart-hits grandson Sam and an all-singing, all-dancing finale. Oh, and a giant sausage.
Latecomers will not be admitted. Suitable for ages 16 and over only.

The West End’s original and favourite 70s musical is back on the road!
The show tells the hilarious and heart-warming story of Roddy O’Neil, set in a provincial British town in the height of the Disco Seventies, the decade that fashion forgot. This remixed concert version sees the original characters in a packed hit-fest that promises 70 songs from the 70s, with video images on a giant back drop enhancing an amazing array of live music and an all star cast for one night only.
The Osmonds (Jimmy, Jay and Merrill) will return from the USA as special guest stars, and will unite with Gareth Gates, who is playing the heart throb role of ‘Dean’, for a cover of Donny’s Puppy Love. The leading lady character of ‘Debs’ will be taken by Louisa Lytton, who is joined by X-Factors’ Andy Abraham as tough guy soul singer ‘Spencer’ and livewire Chico will be the daft and engaging character of ‘Terry’. The star line-up is completed by Shane Richie Jr, who will take over the role of ‘Roddy’, the original seventies bad boy, originally created by his father.
The concert will have a cast of 15 musicians, singers and dancers and promises a party atmosphere, laced with the feel-good factor.
