Martin Simpson: A Master of His Art

The remarkable intimate solo performances Martin Simpson gives go from strength to strength – every gig is a masterclass. He travels the length and breadth of the UK and beyond, giving rapt audiences passion, sorrow, love, beauty, tragedy and majesty through his playing.

“What’s it like being the best guitar player in the world…?” Martin’s modesty and grace prevented him from answering this BBC Radio 4 interviewer’s question recently, but the facts speak for themselves.

40 years after he recorded his first album, Golden Vanity, in 1976, Martin is known as a guitarist of formidable talent. Equally at home playing English traditional folk, American folk and blues and his own compositions, he is consistently named as one of the very finest fingerstyle guitar players in the world.

The King of The Southport Comedy Festival returns for a 6th year with a brand-new show, Wrecked But Ready. After 23 consecutive years Jason is wrecked but he is as ever ready (which is a battery, but he’s more Duracell than Eveready).

As seen on ‘Live at the Apollo’ (BBC1), ‘The Royal Variety Show’ (ITV1), ‘Don’t Say It bring It’ (Dave), ‘Wild Things’ (Sky) and recently seen judging ‘Ireland’s Got Talent’ (TV3). He’s truly ‘unmissable’ (Evening Standard) and “Consistently brilliant” (The Metro)

Romesh Ranganathan - The Cynic's Mixtape

Southport Theatre at the Waterfront, The Promenade, Southport, PR9 0DZ
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.

BILL AND BOB: The Anfield Revolutionaries

The compelling story of how Bill Shankly and Bob Paisley joined forces to transform Liverpool FC and English football comes to The Atkinson stage to mark the 60th anniversary of Shankly’s appointment as manager in December 1959.

With Kop heroes Ian St John, Ian Callaghan, Chris Lawler and Phil Neal live on stage, Bill And Bob:The Anfield Revolutionaries charts Shankly’s arrival at a club trapped in Second Division mediocrity and how he inspired a glorious revival of Liverpool fortunes.

The charismatic Scot, assisted by coach and physio Paisley, guided Liverpool to promotion, three League titles, two FA Cup triumphs – ending the club’s 73-year wait for the trophy in 1965 – a UEFA Cup success and unbroken qualification for European football.

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.

7:30 pm - 8:45 pm

And that’s not all – audiences will be treated to some of the very best bits from the previous tour of this smash-hit show.

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…

Are we alone in the universe?
Is there life on Mars bars?
2lbs of potatoes.
Packet of ginger nuts.

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.

7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

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.

Families Fighting Against Crime Music Festival

Thornton Family Well-being Centre, Stannyfield Drive, Thornton, L23 1TY
The event is to raise awareness around the impact of crime in our communities and for families to engage and promote positive community cohesiveness.

Crime negatively affects well-being in ways that often goes beyond the residents of the community in which the crime occurs. While the immediate effect of crime is usually felt by the individual upon whom the crime was committed it can have a devastating effect on all involved and the wider community.

The music event will ensure we promote and put people at the heart of what we do, we listen, value and respect each other’s views, we develop a culture of challenge, ownership, innovation and improvement and educate and promote positive community cohesion.

The event will be fun and engaging for the whole family

Jack the Ripper: The Real Truth

Trevor Marriott is a retired British Police murder squad detective and leading Ripper expert. Since 2002 he has been conducting a cold case investigation into The Whitechapel Murders of 1888 which were attributed to a fearsome unknown killer who came to be known as Jack the Ripper. For the past 130 years this mystery has captivated the imagination of people worldwide and still does today.

Trevor has now finally concluded his long and protracted cold case investigation with startling new evidence and new facts, which now not only dispel but shatter the myth that has been Jack the Ripper for 130 years and he is now able to answer that long standing question to which everyone wants to know the answer, who was Jack the Ripper?

His two hour one man audio/visual show is packed with pictures from 1888 showing original crime scene photographs of the victims, the suspects, and many other original photographs from 1888 relative to the murders.

Nunkie Theatre Company: Dead Men’s Eyes

Two chilling and thrilling tales from M R James, the master of the English ghost story.

In ‘A View from a Hill’, a pair of old binoculars reveal the grisly history of an idyllic stretch of English landscape. In ‘The Treasure of Abbot Thomas’, a treasure-seeker comes face to face with unspeakable horror at the bottom of ancient well.

Dead Men’s Eyes is the sixth instalment of Nunkie’s M R James Project, a series of one-man shows that seek to revive the tradition of oral, supernatural storytelling that was perfected by Montague Rhodes James in Cambridge in the years leading up to World War One. It follows shows like ‘Oh, Whistle…’, ‘A Pleasing Terror’ and ‘Casting the Runes’ which have all toured to large, appreciative audience throughout the UK, Ireland & USA.

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.

The majesty and control of June’s voice combine with the passion of John Jones’ singing and the dynamic drive of Oysterband to illuminate dark traditional ballads and contemporary classics alike – witness their moving duet version of Joy Division’s ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’, widely regarded as the best-ever reinterpretation of that much-covered track. 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+

7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Atkinson – Theatre
Tickets £20. Plus booking fee £1 per ticket online/phone.
