“She's not going anywhere yet. Even if it's just for tonight - he won't unwish it. They can have now. And then years after, they'll still get a shiver from the memories.”
It’s the grand reopening of Booth and Son’s Fish & Chip Shop. Eric has returned home, over forty years after he left, and it’s time for a fresh start. But old flame Christine has other ideas. Transported back to a time of chippy teas and Northern Soul, there’s unfinished business for these old lovers. Watching teenage love stumble as hapless Lee makes a pass at the beautiful Jasmine, is it all just history repeating?
Focusing on love at different ages and celebrating the nation’s favourite food, Chip Shop Chips heads nationwide following a completely sold-out Northern Tour in Spring 2018. Performing in unusual spaces across the country, brace yourself for an immersive love story set to a soundtrack of Northern Soul and served with a fish and chip supper. This is theatre, but not as you know it: dinner, quiz and a show all rolled into one!

Now entering their 23rd year, The Moderators came together out of a mutual love of old Jam, Specials and Madness Singles, wearing Fred Perry's and riding their Scooters. They embarked on a mission to recruit the perfect ‘faces’ to enable them to become a live act that demands your attention and your dancing shoes.
The band thrives on raw energy and love nothing more than seeing their huge array of followers skanking, bouncing and sweating along with them at their shows.
UK Guns N Roses are indisputably the Top Guns N Roses Tribute. Formed in 2002 they are the longest running and most established Guns N Roses cover band, having toured extensively throughout The UK, Europe, The Middle East and the United States. With fans on multiple continents, they continue to astonish and entertain crowds with their outstanding, energetic & accurate live shows.
All the classics are lovingly and accurately replicated live from 'Sweet Child O' Mine', 'Welcome to the Jungle' and 'Paradise City' from the all time classic rock album 'Appetite For Destruction' right through to the phenomenal hits like 'November Rain', 'Estranged' and 'Civil War' from the later 'Use Your Illusion' albums.
The band is very proud to be widely recognized by fans, music critics and venue owners, to be the very best at what they do. For the masses of Guns N' Roses fans, UK Guns N’ Roses are also regarded as a very real alternative to the original. Many believe the band to be as close as you will ever get to seeing the original line up of GN'R live and some even rate this tribute to be better than the real thing.
Put simply.... if you want Guns N' Roses, get UK Guns N’ Roses!

No he won't, he'll be leaving that old twaddle to comedians at the Edinburgh Festival.

Lee will be turning up, lobbing gags and funny stuff at you from all angles.
A hilarious night is about to hit town.
Austentatious is saddling the horses for a Grand Tour of the United Kingdom!
Austentatious is an improvised comedy play starring a cast of the country’s quickest comic performers. Every single show the cast conjure up a brand new ‘lost’ Jane Austen novel based on nothing more than a title suggested by the audience.
The show comes fresh from six sellout runs at the Edinburgh Fringe, a monthly residency in London’s West End and a BBC Radio 4 special to mark the bicentenary of Austen’s death. Now their show will be appearing at two dozen theatres across the country to entertain and astonish audiences in equal measure.
Previous ‘lost’ masterpieces have included Sixth Sense & Sensibility, Double 0 Darcy and Mansfield Shark, and no two shows are ever the same. Performed in period costume with live musical accompaniment, this is a Regency treat guaranteed to delight Austen novices and die-hard fans alike.

Austentatious said:“We are thrilled to be travelling the length and breadth of the country, rediscovering the lost classics Austen wrote and promptly forgot about. We love and admire Jane’s works and the public deserve an intimate acquaintance with them, particularly the very prescient ones about Donald Trump.”
Austentatious is performed by:
Andrew Hunter Murray
Daniel Nils Roberts
Line-up varies. Each show stars 5-6 members of the cast.
