THE variety of entertainment on offer at the Memorial Theatre just gets better and better.  

There’s something for everyone over the coming months including:

Pongo’s Party – Saturday 20th February, 2.00pm: Pongo’s Party – featuring the voice of CBeebies’ Justin Fletcher (aka Mr Tumble) as Pongo the Pig! Today is the day that Pongo the Pig has been waiting for – that’s right, it’s his birthday! He’s hoping for a fantastic party… but the trouble is nobody seems to remember!

Molly-Moo the Cow is baking, Sheena the Sheep is rehearsing with her band and Sally the Scarecrow is in the middle of decorating – whatever can they be up to? Come and help make Pongo’s Party a day to remember by joining in a show full of fun, songs and laughter – come dressed for the Best Party Clothes competition, take part in the town’s biggest ever game of pass the parcel and join the largest children’s band!

Ticket Price – £10.00 – Concessions £8.50 – Family Ticket £34.00 (two adults, two children).

Russell Kane – Right Man Wrong Age Tour – Friday 26th February, 8.00pm:  Are you 16-years-old, yet feel 21? Are you 40, but tragically faking 25? Or maybe you’re full-on 80 years with the heart of three oxen and the sex drive of a bonobo chimp. Don’t worry: this is normal. No one is ever the ‘right’ age – it’s the beauty and the curse of being a real person.

In this brand new show, Russell Kane unleashes another blisteringly-funny, award-winning stand-up performance about growing up, growing down, and why farts will always be funny.

Multi-award winning comedian, presenter, actor, author and scriptwriter Russell is best known as host of BBC3’s ‘Live At The Electric’, regular appearances on BBC1’s ‘Live At Apollo’, BBC3’s ‘Unzipped’, ITV2’s ‘Celebrity Juice’ and ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! Now!’ ‘A seriously good comedian’ ★★★★★ The Times

‘…at the top of his game’ The Guardian

The Circus of Horrors – ‘Welcome to the CarnEvil’ – Friday 18th March, 7.30pm:

The show that stormed into the finals of Britain’s Got Talent and now a West End smash marks its 21st Anniversary in spectacular style. ‘Welcome to the Carnevil’  Victorian London 1899. Jack the Ripper was still at large and this was the age of the Freakshow.

A young girl dreamed of running away to join the Circus only to see her dream turn nightmare in a decrepit corpse ridden Carnevil, plagued by Killer Klowns, Sword Swallowers, Demon Dwarves, Death Deifying Aerialists, A Guinness World Record holding Hairculian Diva, back flipping fire limboing acrobats and more! A show ruled by the undead climaxing in an awesome flaming apocalypse.

Grisly murders, sensational shocks interwoven with some of the greatest, most bizarre circus acts on earth. An almighty cast with forked tongue firmly in cheek and the devil driven rock n’ roll of Dr Haze & The Interceptors from Hell. If Quentin Tarantino had directed Cirque Due Solely then you would be only half way there.

‘The Circus of Horrors completely WOWED the audience’ – The Daily Mail.

‘You have to go and see this if, one day something will go wrong and you will be able to say I was there’ – Graham Norton.
