Let Me Entertain You

Kinky Boots

Inspired by true events, Kinky Boots takes you from a gentlemen’s shoe factory in Northampton to the glamorous catwalks of Milan. Charlie Price is struggling to live up to his father’s expectations and continue the family business of Price & Son. With the factory’s future hanging in the balance, help arrives in the unlikely but spectacular form of Lola, a fabulous performer in need of some sturdy new stilettos.

Loved it! Entertaining, thought-provoking, and profound. "Be Yourself, Everyone Else Is Taken" - Lola

Captivating and entertaining the whole way through. The musical captured the history and drama of the time, in this spectacular performance including hits from the Supremes, the Temptations, Smokey Robinson, the Jackson 5, and many more!

Brought back lots of memories from seeing Dennis Edwards and The Temptations many years ago! Awesome.

Let It Be

Let It Be: A Celebration Of The Music Of The Beatles is the ultimate experience for Beatles fans, and features many of the Fab Four’s best-loved songs including She Loves You; Twist and Shout; Day Tripper; Penny Lane; I Want To Hold Your Hand.

It was entertaining from beginning to end and a truly talented cast not only brought the story of The Beatles to life but embodied the spirit and charisma of each of the band members, not forgetting the epic tunes. Great night out in the hometown of The Beatles - Liverpool!

The Band

THE BAND is a new musical about what it’s like to grow up with a boyband. For five 16-year-old friends in 1992, ‘the band’ is everything. 25 years on, we are reunited with the group of friends, now 40-something women, as they try once more to fulfill their dream of meeting their heroes.

I was there! Did you see Take That back in the day too? Gosh, too funny.

Based on real people aboard the most legendary ship in the world, Maury Yeston and Peter Stone's stunning musical focuses on their hopes and aspirations. Unaware of the fate that awaits them, the Third Class immigrants dream of a better life in America, the newly-enfranchised Second Class dream of achieving the lifestyles of the rich and famous, and the millionaire Barons of the First Class dream of their mastery lasting forever.

An unforgettable performance in Belfast, where the RMS Titanic was constructed.
