Dara O’Briain is back on tour in autumn 2017, with a brand new show.

The BEATLEMANIA show superbly recreates the legendary live performances of The Beatles from their ‘moptop’ roots, through the psychedelia of Sgt. Pepper then on to the final years of Abbey Road and Let It Be. In 1963 The Beatles released their debut album “Please Please Me” and then went on to dominate the charts throughout the world and become the greatest, most successful act in the history of popular music. Later the same year the “Fab Four” released their second album “With The Beatles”, which instantly replaced “Please Please Me” at top of the charts. It was the first ever U.K. album to sell 1,000,000 copies and remained at No.1 for 21 weeks, giving the band a continuous run of 51 weeks at the summit! This, along with four U.K. number one singles and three chart topping E.P.s, made 1963, without doubt, the year that launched The Beatles to the world, and that was just the beginning…

After the sell out success of his shows here in October comedy superstar John Bishop has announced 2 extra shows of his WINGING IT tour in Belfast & Dublin this January. On announcing Winging It, John said: “I am delighted by the reaction to Winging It and can’t wait to bring the show back to Belfast and Dublin in January, where the tour began. The people of Ireland are always a great crowd to perform to and it’s going to be a fantastic couple of nights. It’s been three years since my last live tour and it’s great to be back out on the road, performing in front of live audiences. I’ve had nightly standing ovations, the audience has been overwhelming.” Winging It sees John back on stage for his fifth UK & Ireland tour, performing in his own inimitable style. His last tour ‘Supersonic’ was watched by more than 500,000 people and received huge critical acclaim. ‘Rollercoaster’ in 2012 was another sell out, and followed the successes of his ‘Sunshine’ tour in 2011 and the ‘Elvis Has Left The Building’ show in 2010, for which he was nominated for an Edinburgh Comedy Award.

Since they burst onto the scene in 2006 with their unstoppable debut Inside In/Inside Out, which went 5x platinum last month, the Brighton based four-piece have gone from strength to strength. Now, with three more studio albums, a number of massive world tours, awards and critical acclaim under their belts, it was clear that the indie rockers’ ten-year anniversary is a significant occasion to celebrate their momentous career so far with a tour of all of their greatest hits. Fans will be given the chance to see performances of classic hits, B-Sides as well as brand new music that the band have been dedicating time to in the studio this year.

Atmospheric and timely, Borderland is the stunning début by writer, Andrew Doyle.  In the context of Northern Ireland’s current political climate, it strikes a balance between the myths, loyalties and destruction of the past with new hope in an uncertain future. Bickering brothers Sean (Gerard McCabe, Smiley/Complete Works of Shakespeare/Cinderella) and Ciaran (Michael Condron, 39 Steps/Game of Thrones/The Boat Factory) are in trouble.  Their work as delivery men has all but dried up as the peace process continues to pressurise their paramilitary clients.  In a supposedly peaceful Northern Ireland they are standing at a crossroads, with one last delivery to make and a future to find.  As their last ‘errand’ lands on the doorstep the boys bow to curiosity and take a peek.
