Phil Wang

The Basement – Sunday 8th October

Certain belly laughs’ ★★★★ Sunday Times

Phil is a 27-year old stand-up comedian on his first tour of the UK. He has appeared on Have I Got News For You, Live at the Apollo, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, and Would I Lie To You? He is very excited to be performing here, in [INSERT TOWN NAME] – a place he often calls his second home.

‘Talented up-and-comer’ The Guardian

‘One of the more appealing – and cerebral – stand-ups to have emerged in recent years’ The Telegraph

A Murder Is Announced: A Miss Marple Mystery

York Theatre Royal – Tuesday 17th to Saturday 21st October

The residents of Chipping Cleghorn are astonished to read an advert in the local newspaper that a murder will take place this coming Friday at Little Paddocks, the home of Letitia Blacklock. Unable to resist, the group gather at the house at the appointed time, when the lights go out and a gun is fired. Enter Miss Marple, who must unravel a complex series of relationships and events to solve the mystery of the killer…

Now in it’s third year of touring, this lavish production has delighted packed audiences across the UK.

Michael Kiwanuka

York Barbican – Friday 20th October

Michael Kiwanuka takes his critically acclaimed, number one selling, Mercury Prize and BRIT Awards nominated second album ‘Love & Hate’ out on the road in October for seven new shows.

This is Cold Little Heart

This new stretch of dates follows his already sold-out tour for May, which includes a night at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

British Sea Power

Fibbers – Tuesday 24th October

BRITISH SEA POWER have always taken a broad and panoramic perspective drawing on historical events and mirroring the ageless wonders of the natural world.

March 2017’s epic album Let The Dancers Inherit The Party covers everything from the stars at night to media manipulation; alluding to a world of chaos and disorder whilst answering with optimism and hope. Melodic, direct and urgent, rock muscle conjoins immediate pop like a crate of champagne exploding in a Marshall stack.

This is Bad Bohemian

Mr Scruff

The Crescent – Friday 3rd November

Ninja Tune veteran & supreme selector Mr. Scruff will be at the controls for the whole night, serving up a melting pot of jazz, soul, hip hop, funk, disco, deep house, reggae, dubstep, afrobeat, latin, electrofunk and plenty of goodies that don’t fit into any category…

Expect fantastic sound, a lovely mixed crowd & great atmosphere.
