Hambledon Productions Presents:
Steptoe and Son

2nd February

Albert and Harold; father and son. One proclaims he’s “a poor old man” while the other protests that actually he’s “a dirty old man!” In actual fact, both are telling the truth.
These two warring rag-and-bone-men, in their Shepherd’s Bush scrapyard home, became household favourites for entire generations throughout the 60s and 70s and still they continue to
entertain audiences today.

Century Cinema Presents:
Whisky Galore

16th February

The story of the inhabitants of the isolated Scottish island of Todday, in the Outer Hebrides, where gloom sets in as their wartime rationing of whisky runs out. When cargo ship the SS Cabinet Minister runs aground the shrewd islanders run rings around the buffoonish English Home Guard commander Captain Waggett and conspire to hide away cases of the precious amber nectar.

"For a new generation, this WHISKY GALORE will be  pleasure" - Kate Muir, The Times.

Stars Gregor Fisher, Eddie Izzard & Kevin Guthrie.

BYE BYE BABY - Tribute to Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons

17th February


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.

Find yourself a comfy lap and settle in for an evening of hilarity as Canada's furriest friend disgorges all your favourite spittle impregnated cultural furballs- retching his own: (why the hell do your coffee shops close at 6pm!!!?? You don't even like coffee!?? This isn't your call to make!!) onto your favourite comfy tea-sipping slippers- retorting self with your self-evident sublime return missive: (Because that's the time normal people go-to-the-pub you blathering barbarian..).. expect a few less savoury tinsel-turd classics squeezed out for good measure, streaked down your recently painted eggshell-white cat-flap wall and across your favourite carpet..  You might by the end of the evening be left wondering which of you is domesticated…(psst.. it's you.) ;-)

Expect a raucous evening of post-scratchin' and kickin' litter aboot the hoose while Campbell tickles chins, keeping purrs and treadles generous throughout! No rabbits, mice or children and please be kind to our neighbours by not crapping in their gardens on the way home!
