presented by Lancaster Footlights

Friday 7th, Saturday 8th at 7.30pm, Sunday 9th matinee at 2.30pm, Friday 14th, Saturday 15th at 7.30pm

This little known mystery will surprise and delight Christie fans. Written in 1934, it is the only play written by Agatha Christie , all other films and plays being adaptations of her novels.

The story concerns a physicist named Sir Claude Amory who has come up with a formula for an atom bomb. In the first act, Sir Claude is poisoned (in his coffee, naturally) and Hercule Poirot is called in to solve the case. He does so after many wonderful twists and turns in true Christie fashion

Al Murray The Pub Landlord - Let's Go Backward Together

 We live in troubling times. Europe. The NHS. Whatever the hell is going on in the Middle East. The gathering storm of fortnightly bin collections? Who knows where it will all end?

 Watch the one man who will answer the call of destiny even though it’s an unlisted number. Watch the one man who will call time on tyranny even though he isn’t quite sure what it means. Watch the one man who isn’t afraid to say no to women ordering anything other than a glass of white wine (or fruit based drink).

The Lindisfarne Story

Thursday 20th October at 7:30pm

When Alan Hull, Rod Clements, Ray Jackson, Simon Cowe & Ray Laidlaw exploded onto the UK music scene in 1970, their sparkling songwriting quickly established the band as the standard-bearers for acoustic-based rock, cutting through the prevailing pop and glam sounds of the 70's.

International success followed, and thanks to a string of unforgettable songs including Lady Eleanor, Meet Me On the Corner, Fog On the Tyne and Run For Home, Lindisfarne's music continues to be heard on the radio today.

In this unique show, Ray & Billy perform all those great songs and more, and share first-hand the story of the band behind them...

The Greatest Love of All - Whitney Houston Show starring Belinda Davids

Saturday 29th October at 7:30pm

 This breathtaking production, featuring the impeccable vocal talents of South Africa’s Belinda Davids, is a beautifully crafted tribute to one of the world’s most revered singers. Accompanied by a full band and dancers, Davids performs over two hours of Whitney Houston’s best loved pop hits live on stage.

And there is no person better equipped to do so. In addition to having a voice described as "jaw-droppingly similar" to the pop diva, Davids openly acknowledges that Houston is her personal idol and was the original inspiration for her own career when she began singing at the age of 14.

"I want people to come and remember Whitney when she was at the top of her game and when she was fabulous", says Davids.

And people all over the world have done exactly that, with South Africa, New Zealand, Singapore, Canada and the USA already hosting sold-out performances in the show’s first two years of touring.

The show includes 20 of Houston’s most popular tracks taken from the full span of her career, including ‘I Will Always Love You’, ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody’, ‘Didn’t We Almost Have It All’, ‘I’m Every Woman’, ‘Exhale (Shoop Shoop)’, ‘Million Dollar Bill’ and more.

Davids is directed by Showtime Management Creative Director John Van Grinsven Snr. and joined on tour by the production team responsible for the worldwide hit tribute show Michael Jackson HIStory.

Belinda Davids

Belinda Davids was born in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, and began performing professionally at the age of 14. She has never had vocal training and is blessed with a 4 octave vocal range, and hence the ability to sing any genre. Her musical heart has always been R&B; Belinda's inspirations as a child were Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker, Chaka Khan, Donny Hathaway, Michael Jackson and the one artist whom she still, to this day, honours in every show she performs – Whitney Houston.
