Oysterband & June Tabor ‘Fire & Fleet’ Tour

One of the most exciting collaborations in folk music, June Tabor & Oysterband, resumes this autumn for a major tour. With separate distinguished careers to pursue, their appearances together are necessarily rare, so this is a must-see opportunity to catch them live.

Songs from their seminal 1990 album ‘Freedom & Rain’ and their multi-award-winning 2011 follow-up ‘Ragged Kingdom’ will of course be featured, plus exciting new material.

Age 8+

The Body Snatcher

The Body Snatcher is an unnerving experience inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson’s hair-raising horror: live action, music and storytelling combine in a tale of mystery, morality, and science unhinged.

Something is rotten in the town of Inglenook.

Sour milk, unread post, dogs howling day and night, the locals are vanishing…seemingly into thin air.

As fear haunts the remaining few, a young scientist is disturbed by a noise underground.

It’s the sound of terror, and it’s getting louder.

No body is safe…

But they’re just jokes - they are not the terrible things. Having political correctness at a comedy show is like having health and safety at a rodeo. Now you’ve been warned, buy a ticket.

Crooners

This modern world does not always seem the place for men of style and vigour. Men with a penchant for sentiment, romance and charm. Men who own tap shoes.

Crooners follows the story of three very British gentlemen who exhume the characteristics of a crooner; suave, self-assured, stylish, as they defend the role of a crooner in our modern world. By the very same nature, it is not always obvious that these characteristics are adopted quite so well by the quintessentially British. Cue a splendiferous injection of British comedy. Tongue firmly in cheek. And an Outrageous injection of Big Band Swing.

Dr John Cooper Clarke , the Luckiest Man Alive

Southport Theatre at the Waterfront, The Promenade , Southport, PR9 0DZ
Britain’s best loved and most important performance poet, John Cooper Clarke is as vital now as he was in the '70s. His biting, satirical, political and very funny verse, delivered in a unique rapid-fire performance style, resonated with the punk movement and he toured with all the seminal bands, from The Sex Pistols to The Clash, until he soon began to draw large crowds in his own right. John Cooper Clarke is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on pop culture. His influence can also be heard in the satirical and keen social observations of artists such as Plan B and the Arctic Monkeys. As well as his regular TV appearances on the likes of Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Would I Lie To You and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, John also host 6 Music shows and his own BBC Radio 4 Show 'John Cooper Clarke Live at the BBC'.

The Blues Band: 40 Years & Back for More

Many of the Blues Band’s 21st century fans weren’t even born when these five virtuosos, already music industry veterans, decided to fly in the face of musical fashion in 1979 and form a band ‘just to play the blues’. No one could have predicted that, 40 years on, they’d still be dazzling audiences with their showmanship and virtuosity. About 20 albums and thousands of gigs later, they’ve earned a reputation around the world as one of the finest exponents of the blues tradition in all its forms. With this line-up, it’s hardly surprising.

The Blues Band are Paul Jones, Dave Kelly, Tom McGuinness, Rob Townsend and Gary Fletcher.

Romesh is back with a brand new show ‘The Cynic’s Mixtape’, his most brutally honest show yet. Fresh from the ‘Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan’, ‘A League Of Their Own’ and ‘Judge Romesh’, he's putting showbiz aside to deliver a carefully curated selection of all the things he has found unacceptable since the last tour, including why trying to save the environment is a scam, why none of us are truly free, and his suspicion that his wife is using gluten intolerance to avoid sleeping with him. There will be a support act prior to Romesh's appearance for 20 mins. Parental Guidance: likely to be swearing and adult content.

Christmas Gothic

Following the sell-out performance in 2017, Christmas Gothic returns to The Atkinson! From the award-winning creators of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Orlando, The Time Machine, Female Gothic, and Austen’s Women.

Christmas: a time to remember the past, celebrate the present, and look to the future; a time of feasts and festivities; of holly and mistletoe; a time of visits and visitations. A time of ghosts.

Come in from the cold and enter into the Christmas spirit as a dark and spectral woman tells haunting tales of the festive season, lighting a candle to the frailties of human nature and illuminating the cold and chilling depths of the bleak, wintry dark…

Dyad Productions resurrects a Victorian tradition by presenting three seasonal tales of terror to scintillate the gooseflesh for dark Christmas nights.

Adapted and performed by Rebecca Vaughan. Directed by Elton Townend Jones.
