Choice Grenfell

In these somewhat uncertain times comes a wonderful evening of warmth, wit and gentle humour.

The best of Joyce’s hilarious songs and monologues from Stately As A Galleon and Free Activity Period to A Terrible Worrier and First Flight.

Joyce is our guide for a delightful delve into some of her most endearing characters, ably accompanied by her trusted pianist William Blezard.

As Joyce would have said “We request the pleasure of your company” in the company of one of Britain’s best loved comediennes.

The family of William Blezard (Joyce’s musical director and pianist) have also given permission for us to use material from previously unheard rehearsal tape recordings and personal letters sent from Joyce to William.

WHY? The show will provide a completely unique view into the life of Joyce Grenfell through the eyes of her well respected friend, William Blezard

Clinton Baptiste in The Paranormalist Returns

Join paranormal sensation Clinton Baptiste as he takes you on a hilarious yet touching journey through his life, out the other side and beyond the Celestial Curtains.

Clinton Baptiste is the hapless clairvoyant, medium and psychic from Peter Kay’s smash hit Channel 4 TV show Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights. Now, some eighteen years after the show aired, he returns to conjure up his extraordinary powers for a new generation.

Clinton will give readings to the audience, offering advice from beyond the grave. He will predict your future, tell you about your past and all manner of spooky stuff an’ that.

But more, he takes you through his demise, his comeback and finally… finally on this special night, he will attempt to pass over to The Other Side and return (before the venue want you all out)… with THE ANSWER!

‘Hundreds of years ago when man walked the planet he had no real means of communication. In time man developed a phenomena which has never been fully understood by the psychic community. This phenomena is… Clinton Baptiste’ Peter Kay (That Phenomena)

WHY? The world-renowned clairvoyant, medium and psychic is back!
