GARLIC THEATRE EGGS ON LEGS

'Every day, from here to there, funny things are everywhere.' Dr Seuss

Inspired by the original quirk merchant Dr Seuss, Garlic Theatre has cooked up an eggcentric family puppet show all about 'Eggs on Legs'. These aren't your common or garden poultry products, however; they've leapt from the frying pan into a magical world where an enormous egg has been blown into their tree. What secrets are hidden inside, and can they save it from the jaws of a slithery snake?

Scrambling together rib-tickling tunes and funny and inspiring puppets with gentle clowning and side-splitting silliness, Garlic Theatre conjure a warm-hearted, poetic story which would crack even the hardest of shells.

'A trademark combo of adorable puppets, jokes and audience participation.' Time Out

KICK IN THE HEAD OLD HERBACEOUS

In this heart-warming one-man play dubbed 'Downton Abbey with gardening tips' (Surrey Advertiser), the quietly loveable Herbert Pinnegar shares his passion for plants and memories of his life as a gardener at 'the big house'.

Renowned actor Giles Shenton is superb as the title character, inviting audiences into Herbert's life growing up in the 1900's, through both world wars, and his years of service to his employer and 'dear lady' of the manor.

An acute and often hilarious observation of relationships between the classes in a simpler age, Old Herbaceous is sprinkled with gentle witticisms and epithets and leaves you with a feeling that, perhaps, all is right with the world.

 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Best Duo winners 2013 and 2016.

Long established as one of the UK folk scene's most rewardingly enduring partnerships, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman are 'songwriters par excellence' (Roots Magazine), their music tuneful, intelligent and soulful.

KICK IN THE HEAD OLD HERBACEOUS

In this heart-warming one-man play dubbed 'Downton Abbey with gardening tips' (Surrey Advertiser), the quietly loveable Herbert Pinnegar shares his passion for plants and memories of his life as a gardener at 'the big house'.

Renowned actor Giles Shenton is superb as the title character, inviting audiences into Herbert's life growing up in the 1900's, through both world wars, and his years of service to his employer and 'dear lady' of the manor.

An acute and often hilarious observation of relationships between the classes in a simpler age, Old Herbaceous is sprinkled with gentle witticisms and epithets and leaves you with a feeling that, perhaps, all is right with the world.

HILARY JAMES & SIMON MAYOR TEARS OF LAUGHTER

The combination of Simon Mayor's renowned mandolin wizardry and Hilary James' 'elegant singing' (Daily Telegraph) and unusual bass instruments are brought to 'a witty and captivating mix of folk, blues, swing and classical showstoppers' - and some of their own gruesomely hilarious children's songs and notorious comic songs - 'spiced with a unique brand of off-beat humour' (The Guardian). All wrapped up in an entertaining stage show and a lively wit as dry as Somerset cider, this is a monstrously enjoyable evening.

MISTER KEITH - A PARLOUR CONCERT WITH MISTER KEITH

A 'splendid' evening of gently quirky, expertly crafted songs - think Ray Davies, Squeeze - stories and humour by the self-professed originator of 'Victorian Pop'.

With song styles varying from jaunty showground to slow lament, all carried forward by lilting melodies and warm, quintessentially English vocals, the bowler-hatted Mister Keith and his mini 'orchestra' of multi-instrumentalists evoke memories of times gone by. An intimate little gem*.

SPITZ & CO. LES GLORIABLES

Les Gloriables is a riotously silly show created by the award-winning French/English female comedy-theatre duo Lise Boucon, as the legendary French actress Gloria Delaneuf, and Susie Donkin (Horrible Histories) as her downtrodden, endlessly apologetic assistant Josephine.

The glamorous Gloria has dreamed a dream. Determined to reunite Europe, she takes her one-woman version of Victor Hugo's classic novel Les Miserables to the streets, and stomps all over it, with ridiculous costume changes, 21st Century jokes, and a big chunk of wildly inventive and hilarious audience participation. A master class in resistance – French style. Vive La Revolution!

Thrill to a brilliantly entertaining 'lecture' detailing how three dapper but hapless chaps embarked on a perilous boys-own adventure by boat, airship and jalopy across Europe and Asia in search of a mysterious and fantastical ancient treasure (and to revive their mediocre musical careers). Around the World in Eighty Days crossed with James Bond crossed with Gardeners' Question Time, with mimes, charades, shadow puppetry, close harmony singing - sometimes rather too close - and musical interludes by large men playing big music on small instruments.

CHRIS INGHAM QUARTET DUDLEY: THE JAZZ OF DUDLEY MOORE
