Following his sell out run at the Edinburgh Festival, former Police Sergeant turned stand-up comedian, and star of BBC Radio 4 ‘It’s a Fair Cop’, Alfie tasers his way through 90 minutes of hilarious and fascinating anecdotes drawn from his eighteen years on the beat.
Badapple Theatre Company Presents:
The Last Station Keeper
The station house at Honeypot Holt is under attack, and not just from the resident bees.
As the summer days drone on, the threat of closure creeps nearer and nearer, as the new high speed link threatens the archaic bumbling ways of the station master and the railway cottage that has stood at the village centre as long as anyone can remember.
A heartfelt and hilarious look at the perils of modern life when the 21st Century 'need for speed' hits the old ways head on....
Blonde Sheep Events Presents:
An Evening of Mediumship with TV Psychic Tony Stockwell
Tony Stockwell: Sensitive and inspirational, his messages are amazingly detailed and always humorous.
Tony Stockwell is a Spiritualist Medium and spirit communication is part of his own religious belief, but we accept differing opinions exist regarding mediumship. Any demonstration of mediumship is an experiment and results are not guaranteed.
Take a large helping of the best pop music ever recorded. Toss in four musicians playing 100% live. Add a light show and sound system that Pink Floyd would envy. Stir in a generous amount of video and stills of the stars from a bygone era. Sprinkle with anecdotes & reminiscences. Mix in a large dollop of Geordie humour and a little sauce. Cook for 2 hours. Result: The Counterfeit Sixties Show!
