September 22: Roxy Magic

Roxy Magic are the UK's best and longest-running tribute to Roxy Music & Bryan Ferry.

They recreate entirely live material that spans four decades, from futurist/nostalgic art rock, through to classic standards to sophisticated adult-oriented rock.

October 17-20: Autumn Production: The Ladykillers

The Ladykillers is a classic black comedy; a sweet little old lady, alone in her house, is pitted against a gang of criminal misfits who will stop at nothing.

Adapted by Graham Linehan (Creator of Father Ted, The IT Crowd).
