york-events-our-man-in-havanaOur Man In Havana

York Theatre Royal – Wednesday 31st May to Saturday 3rd June

Cuba 1958.

Meet Jim Wormwold – a hapless vacuum cleaner salesman who gets sucked in to a dirty world of espionage and double agents when the chance of helping out MI6 with a job or two proves too good an offer to resist.

Thrillingly adapted for the stage by Clive Francis, this uproarious farce is filleted to perfection from Graham Greene’s hilarious, subversive and ever popular novel.

The Basement – Sunday 4th June

Sara Pascoe is enjoying a year-long, one woman stag-do. From spiritual retreats, city-breaks, life-drawing classes and football matches; she has been drunk and lonely everywhere. A brand new and BEST EVER show from a comic you’ve seen on Live at The Apollo, Mock the Week, QI (BBC) and Taskmaster (DAVE).

“Pascoe’s lively mind teases out big questions with intelligence, silliness and self-deprecation” – THE GUARDIAN

whats-on-reginald-d-hunterReginald D Hunter

Grand Opera House – Thursday 15th June

Stand-up, panel show favourite and – more recently – television presenter Reginald D Hunter is live at The Grand Opera House.

“Reginald D Hunter joins the top rank of stand-up comedians working today…a comedian going for broke, flying in the face of received opinion in a way that is simply exhilarating……this is comedy of a rare scope.” – THE TIMES

“Stand-up comedy’s coolest customer.” – THE TELEGRAPH

hot-8-brassHot 8 Brass Band

Fibbers – Sunday 25th June

Emerging from the New Orleans parade culture The Hot 8 Brass Band’s approach to rhythm and brass is relentless enough to give even George Clinton pause for thought.

“Number 1 purveyors of jazz infused, funk and hip hop” – BBC 6MUSIC

“…the sort of music that makes you glad to be alive – awesome” – ESQUIRE

“Swaggering jazz, raucous funk, second line strut and hip-hop attitude 4/5” – MOJO


The Crescent – Friday 30th June

After wowing audiences at this year’s Celtic Connections and stealing the show at Cambridge Folk Festival 2016 where their “Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young harmonies earned an ecstatic reception and turned them into instant stars” (Daily Telegraph), Darlingside return to the UK for a limited run of shows.

Their style has been described as “exquisitely-arranged, literary-minded, baroque folk-pop” – think Mumford & Sons but with a much more refined and subtle touch.
