Craig Campbell: Easy Tiger

The majestic mountain moose in a tiger striped onesie brings his thrilling new show to Maidenhead.

Find yourself a comfy lap and settle in for an evening of hilarity with Canada's furriest friend. He disgorges all your favourite spittle impregnated cultural furballs (such as why the hell do your coffee shops close at 6pm!!!?? You don't even like coffee!? This isn't your call to make!!) onto your favourite comfy tea-sipping slippers.

Expect a raucous evening of post-scratchin' and kickin' litter aboot the hoose while Campbell tickles chins. No rabbits, mice or children and please be kind to our neighbours by not crapping in their gardens on the way home!

WHY? ‘A fantastic yarn weaver, with charming tales of his travels and hugely funny observations’ Time Out

The War of the Worlds

No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's.

The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons invade the stage in this funny yet faithful adaptation. Musical instruments, puppetry and, um, enthusiasm recreate deadly heat-rays, squidgy tentacled Martians and interplanetary warfare on an epic scale. The chances of success? A million to one.

WHY? ‘Part alternative rock band, part thespian. Wholly charming’ The Times
