Steptoe and Son
2nd February 2018
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.

A CELEBRATION OF FRANKIE VALLI & THE FOUR SEASONS PRESENTED BY EUROPE’S NO 1 TRIBUTE BYE BYE BABY
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.
Vienna Festival Ballet Presents:
16th March 2018

It captures like no other the full range of human emotions - from hope to despair, form terror to tenderness, from melancholy to ecstasy.
This event is brought to you by Performing Arts @ Century Theatre, supported by North West Leicestershire District Council.

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!
