Pop Music

A wedding. A free bar. G and Kayla’s lives are a mess but tonight they’re determined to have it large.

Their veins course with adrenaline and prosecco as they take an epic journey through thirty years of pop. Can the DJ save them as they become Dancing Queens, reliving their Teenage Dream, Staying Out for The Summer and Spicing Up Their Lives? Age guidance 14+ years.

WHY? For anyone that’s ever been a dick on the dance floor

This performance will be captioned throughout.

Harry and Chris Save the World

The hottest comedy-rap-jazz duo out there.

They might also be the only one. After sell-out runs of their 2016 and 2017 shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, Harry Baker and Chris Read have been featured three times on Sky’s The Russell Howard Hour.

Last year they prevented a apocalypse and got a panda pregnant, so they're now drunk on comedy-rap-jazz power, intent on bringing love and laughter to a world that needs both more than ever.

WHY? ‘Amazing, fabulously entertaining’ Jonathan Ross

‘A wonderful blend of infectious songs packed with sharp, clever wordplay… Harry and Chris’ family friendly set leaves the audience with a smile on their face and the catchy tunes stuck in their head for the rest of the day’ ★★★★★ The Sunday Post

‘The numbers are upbeat and feel-good, and all of them are about surprising and inventive subjects or points of view’ ★★★★★ Fringe Guru

'The pair are inspiring Instagram posts in human form' Chortle

Starring: Your host, fabulous hostess and angel atop the Christmas tree Eva Von Schnippisch; slinky sugarplum fairy showgirl Lena Mae; circus royalty and her tinselled hula hoops Abi Collins; the queen of 'look-at-me', lametta bedecked Lolo Brow; and the ridiculous, but hairy and hunky Santa Claus, Dave The Bear!

The King and I from the London Palladium

180 mins.

Recorded live from London’s iconic Palladium. The multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Centre Theatre’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical.

Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

With one of the finest scores ever written including Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You, and Shall We Dance and featuring a company of over 50 world-class performers.

WHY? ‘Five stars for a sumptuous King and I. Book Now. It’s a hit’ The Times

‘We left the London Palladium on a bright cloud of music - joyous!’ Daily Mail

‘Looks and sounds ravishing. Complete rapture’ The Telegraph
