A young Peruvian bear with a passion for all things British travels to London in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone at Paddington Station, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family, who read the label around his neck ('Please look after this bear. Thank you.') and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist.

Once seen, never forgotten: an indefinable confusion of superb musicianship and side-splitting comic
genius, the New Rope String Band are truly unique entertainers. Elements of circus, clowning, vaudeville,
slapstick and sheer inspired silliness are spliced with beautiful acoustic music from various world traditions,
in precision-honed yet uproarious performances. From musical gyrations to deconstructed nursery rhymes,
Python-esque absurdism to pyrotechnics, dream sequences and live, interactive film.


Tickets £12.50 on sale now.

Crompton Stage Society Present



By Jim Cartwright


A bickering husband and wife and the dozen regulars who pass through their pub in an evening are played by two actors. Each vignette skillfully combines pathos and humor. When a little boy is left behind by his father, a fragile reconciliation occurs as their own dark tragedy is revealed.


Tickets £9.00 on sale at Interiors from 17th March.

Friday 15th May at 8.00pm



"Manchester's ferocious folk foursome"


4Square play their music with finesse, fire and virtuosity, yet an understated maturity which has grown throughout their seven year journey as a band.

The sight and sound of simultaneous fiddle and clog dancing and virtuosic mandolin will stir the senses and quicken the pulse, galvanised by an engine-room of driving piano and percussion.
By contrast, the listener is then stirred and softened by 4Square's mellow, melancholic three part-harmony singing.

An outright musical journey, all in an acoustic setting.


Tickets £10.00 on sale from Interiors on 16th March.

Eddie Redmayne, felicity Jones.


The Theory of Everything is the story of the most brilliant and celebrated physicist of our time, Stephen Hawking, and Jane Wilde the arts student he fell in love with whilst studying at Cambridge in the 1960s. Little was expected from Stephen Hawking, a bright but shiftless student of cosmology, given just two years to live following the diagnosis of a fatal illness at 21 years of age. He became galvanized, however, by the love of fellow Cambridge student, Jane Wilde, and he went on to be called the successor to Einstein, as well as a husband and father to their three children. Over the course of their marriage as Stephen's body collapsed and his academic renown soared, fault lines were exposed that tested the lineaments of their relationship and dramatically altered the course of both of their lives.


Tickets £4.00 on sale 16th March.

King Pleasure & the Biscuit Boys are more than just the world's greatest swing & R&B band, they are an institution! The band have been on the road for almost three decades playing every European country as well as touring the USA, Russia and the MiddleEast, recording ten CDs.

​ Dazzling musicianship,​ riveting stage performances, more than 50 TV appearances (including, somewhat bizarrely, five episodes of Teletubbies) and 75 radio broadcasts have established them as the Kings of Swing.


Tickets £15.00 on sale from Interiors 16th March.
