Elvis (Cal Halbert) Is In The Building: Benefit in Aid of The Sick Children's Trust

Sunday 20th August 2017

In many ways Cal Halbert and Elvis Presley are exactly the same. Maybe not the hairline, or the musical talent or the looks. The waistline isn't far off but let's not get petty. With the greatest respect Cal is nothing like Elvis, other than perhaps his sideburns and he's got a jump suit...don't ask. Join cal as he compares his life to his idols in a show filled with impressions, guests and a musical number or two. In the week that would mark 40 years after the king's death, stick on your Blue Suede Shoes, get All Shook Up, due to venue policy no Hound Dogs and we'll have fun In the Ghetto. You get the idea. Ladies and Gentleman 'Elvis (Cal Halbert) Is In The Building'.
Please join us for a great fun show with all ticket proceeds going to The Sick Kid's Trust .
Tickets are £5 and can be reserved by calling 0191 232 0707.

Seymour Mace Makes It Up As He Goes Along

Sunday 20th August 2017

Seymour Mace makes it up as he goes along. Come and join Seymour and any of his mates he can con into working for nothing as they make stuff up on the spot relying only on the fact that they're funny.
It could turn out to be anything from a regular stand up night to an impromptu scripted performance of the film 'Zulu Dawn'.
So; y'know, you should come down, or not, whatever you like really, I'm not trying to twist your arm but, if you fancy it it'd be nice to see you.
There, I said it. Happy now?
