Francis Rossi : I Talk Too Much
Friday 6 August 2021 at 7.30pm
Legendary Status Quo lead singer Francis Rossi will share the extraordinary secrets of his 50-plus years in rock’n’roll when he takes to the stage for an intimate evening of chat and music. He will talk about his mishaps and adventures of life on the road with one of the biggest and most loved bands ever.
Francis is a true member of British Rock Royalty. He sang the first words at Live Aid in 1985, survived the obligatory rock’n’roll brush with alcohol and drugs, was awarded an OBE in 2010 and has a BRIT for his Outstanding Contribution to Music. His band has sold more than 120 million records globally.
Expect laughter, revelations, tales involving some of the giants of music, exclusive video clips, snatches of classic tunes and a great night out.
Rossi will be joined on stage by award-winning writer and broadcaster Mick Wall, who has sold more than 1 million books.
Gary Delaney : Gary In Punderland
Sunday 8 August 2021 at 8pm
Get ready to dive into a rabbit hole of the best jokes in the world - star of Live at the Apollo and sell-out sensation Gary Delaney is back! One of the most sought after joke writers in the country and longstanding Mock the Week special guest, Gary has been through the laughing glass and he’s ready to bring you a brand new show with hit after hit of the kind of one-liners only a master could craft. If you’re hunting for snark, Gary’s got it covered!
Mark Watson : How You Can Almost Win
Thursday 9 September 2021 at 8pm
In 2017, Mark Watson - a man prone to considerable anxiety, with multiple phobias and a history of poor self-esteem - was asked to go on Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls. It really wasn’t for him at all because his favourite things include safety, comfort, food and not being scared and miserable. But the experience changed the shambolic comedian for the better, and now he's written a sort of motivational talk about what it taught him. But still with jokes.
