Rhod Gilbert: The Book of John

New Theatre, January 14

This show sees Rhod as funny as ever, but like never before. It’s a little bit raw, very personal, and brutally honest; no more lies, no more nonsense.

This is Rhod, but different, the same, but not. It’s a show about hitting rock bottom, and just when you think things can’t get any worse, you meet a bloke…a bloke called John.

As seen on ‘Rhod Gilbert’s Work Experience’, ‘Rhod Gilbert’s Growing Pains’ ‘Would I Lie to You?’, ‘Taskmaster’, ‘Qi’, ‘Live at The Apollo’, ‘Have I Got News for You?’, and much more…

The Stones

The Cresset, January 14

The UK’s number one tribute to The Rolling Stones, bringing all the hits and timeless Rolling Stones tracks to the big stage – from Satisfaction and Jumping Jack Flash to Ruby Tuesday, Start Me Up and Brown Sugar. Complete with authentic vintage instruments, costume, mannerisms and look-alikes, they perform each song with the same accuracy, passion, energy and verve of the originals.
