Cheryl, Mike and Jay

formerly of Bucks Fizz with

Bobby M

Early in 1981, four complete strangers sat in the drawing room of a house in Fulham and were told: ‘you are now Bucks Fizz’. Although working for several years now, there was obviously one thing missing – a fourth person! The vocals were always there but the dance routines that Fizz was so famous for, were definitely lacking, so in comes Bobby McVey who was also a Eurovision entrant in 1984 for the UK. Fri 1st May 2015 – 7.30pm Tickets £20.00

And Finally And finally… Phil Collins has built a reputation over the last six years of touring as one of the UK’s leading Tribute shows, taking a fresh approach each year to performing the music of Phil Collins at the highest possible level. The show was recognized in 2013 by the industry (The Agents Association of Great Britain) at the ‘National Tribute Awards’ as the OFFICIAL No.1 tribute show to the man himself. Sat 2nd May 7.30pm Tickets £18


Searchers Their special ‘solo’ concert is a highly entertaining show and has been enthusiastically and warmly received throughout the world. Combined with anecdotes and reminiscences, this fully self-contained concert includes all their famous hits, plus many


album recordings, B-sides and a selection of other collector and well known favourites. Don’t miss The Searchers live in concert! Fri 8th May 7.30pm Tickets £19.50

BOX OFFICE: 01983 868000

The Carpenters Story Widely regarded as the first ever “Tribute” show back in its 1989 incarnation, The Carpenters Story brings the show bang up to date – Phil Aldridge’s lavish arrangements, stunning vocal harmonies and Claire Furley’s uncanny representation of

Karen Carpenter combine to bring back memories of pop’s most melodic duo.

Sat 9th May 7.30pm Tickets £21.00


Cory Band

The Cory Band are the current National Champions of Great Britain, Welsh and Brass in Concert Champions as well as being ranked number one band in the world, a position they have maintained for seven consecutive years. Sat 16th May 7.30pm Tickets £18.50

A Midsummer

Night 's Dream

A PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTION STARRING STEVE ARNOLD (“ASHLEY” IN CORONATION STREET) ‘THE COURSE OF TRUE LOVE NEVER DID RUN SMOOTH.’ Hermia loves Lysander and Helena loves Demetrius – but Demetrius is supposed to be marrying Hermia… When the Duke of Athens tries to enforce the marriage, the lovers take refuge in the woods and wander into the midst of a dispute between the king and queen of the fairies. Shakespeare put some of his most dazzling dramatic poetry at the service of this teasing, glittering, hilarious and amazingly inventive play, whose seriousness is only fleetingly glimpsed beneath its dreamlike surface. Mon 18th May 7.30pm Tickets £15 Under 16’s £12

The Island Dance and Theatre Company present

Fri 5th June 7.30pm Tickets £20

Raymond Froggatt A stalwart of the music industry, Froggie has spent 50 years treading the boards, writing and singing songs that have been covered by so many other artists. Song writer for Sir Cliff Richard for ten years, the Dave Clark five covered one of Froggie’s compositions back in the day, and had a massive hit record. There are not many artists that Froggie has not written for or recorded with, but to name a couple, the legendary Isaac Hayes, and the now knighted Sir Elton John. Froggie counts among his many friends, Ozzy Osbourne, Tony


Lommi of Black Sabbath’, friends since childhood, they grew up just around the corner from each other and were, in and out of each other’s homes, a friendship which endures today. Chosen by many visiting acts to accompany them on their UK European tours, the list is endless. His concerts are sold out across the country and abroad, Froggie writes and sings his own songs mesmerising his audience, making them laugh with one of his many stories or cry

with emotion with a song that touches the heart like no other. Raymond has released another album of songs to coincide with this new tour. Still today his songs are recorded by major artists; add to this that in 1992, he became an author. Raymond released his autobiography telling stories of his earlier years in the music business Sat 6th June 7.30pm Tickets £19
