Peterborough Big Band

Broadway, Nov 16

The Decades Show is a cool night of swing with that great big band sound - big band arrangements of classic songs from decades past to the present day… Think Count Basie or Buddy Rich as a starting point, through to contemporary tunes such as “Wonderwall” or “Set Fire to the Rain” in a swing style.

Milton Jones Is Out There

The Cresset, November 15

In his brand new show Milton is putting his foot down and lifting the lid on the pedal bin of lies of the media (which doesn’t include this paper obviously). He will also be scaling the heights of fashion at the risk of falling into a terrible cravat. Milton will be talking about his life so far - the ups, the downs and why buying his own see-saw was the best decision he ever made. Oh and now he wants to be Prime Minister too. Can we do worse than the politicians we already have? Yes we can!
