Early in 1981, four complete strangers sat in the drawing room of a house in Fulham and were told: “you are now Bucks Fizz”.


In the eight weeks between that first meeting and appearing on “A Song for Europe” on 11th March 1981, Bucks Fizz were hurled into a melee of rehearsing, recording, routining, styling, interviews and photography. All that hard work and effort was to pay dividends - they went on to win the Song For Europe and Eurovision Song Contest 1981 and became household names around the world.


With over 20 singles released over the next few years including 3 number ones, “My Camera Never Lies”, “Land Of Make Believe” and of course, “Making Your Mind Up”, they sold in excess of 15 million records, spending 219 weeks in the UK charts alone! Making Your Mind Up went to No 1 in nine countries!


Tickets £24.00

The very funny tale of a small dog with big dreams!

Biff is not like other dogs. He doesn’t do dog stuff like weeing on lampposts, or scratching his fleas, or drinking out of the toilet. No, Biff likes moonlight and music and walking on his tiptoes. You see, Biff doesn’t think he’s a dog. He thinks he’s a ballerina!

Based on the bestselling children’s book by Anna Kemp and Sara Ogilvie, this fabulous feel-good show features music, songs, hand-crafted puppets and Biff, the ballet-dancing dog!

Brought to the stage by acclaimed Blunderbus, this hilarious new story for ages 3+ tells the very funny tale of a small dog with big dreams!
“Brilliant fun!” The Guardian

Hoist the mainsail! Ship loads of pantomime style nautical naughtiness are setting sail this Christmas as we hook up with the boy who never grew up in the Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan.

Defying gravity, Wendy, Michael and John Darling take the second star to the right and straight on till morning as they fly from the rooftops of Victorian London to join Peter, the Lost Boys and the fairy Tinkerbell in Never Land where the Jolly Roger is anchored and Captain Hook is on a mission to outwit and out manoeuvre our hero.  

Dame Able Mabel  is on course to deliver a titanic treasure chest of sea faring couture and ship’s mate Smee will add to the chock-a-block comedy capers and high sea shenanigans!

You don’t have to believe in fairies but an awfully big adventure awaits audiences of all ages in a magical and spectacular pantomime!

Jude Law (The Young Pope, Closer, The Talented Mr Ripley) stars in the stage production of Obsession, broadcast live from the Barbican Theatre in London. Ivo van Hove (NT Live: A View from the Bridge, Hedda Gabler) directs this new stage adaptation of Luchino Visconti’s 1943 film.
Gino is a drifter, down-at-heel and magnetically handsome. At a road side restaurant he encounters husband and wife, Giuseppe and Giovanna. Irresistibly attracted to each other, Gino and Giovanna begin a fiery affair and plot to murder her husband. But, in this chilling tale of passion and destruction, the crime only serves to tear them apart.

The stage production of Obsession is produced by Barbican Theatre Productions Limited, London and Toneelgroep Amsterdam; co-commissioned by Wiener Festwochen and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg; co-produced by Holland Festival and David Binder Productions; and supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.

Please note that this broadcast does not have an interval.

Priscilla (Pauline Collins) is living a cheerless existence caring for her belligerent and miserable husband Frank. A devoted wife and mother, her own needs are continually cast aside for the wishes of others. She’s so eager to please that she’s forgotten what it feels like to be happy. That is until she meets Helen (Joan Collins.)


Helen is quite the opposite. A spikey, selfish character, she has dedicated her life to herself and herself only. She has no family that she will admit to, and has only ever desired to be the famous Hollywood actress she once was. But she fell from grace, was cast aside and now penniless has returned to the UK for a hip operation on the NHS. With nowhere else to go she has been recovering in a retirement home, all the while planning her comeback.


And now at last, Helen has her chance. In a few days time her ex-husband, a celebrated Hollywood director, will be buried in France. His funeral will be packed with movers and shakers and Helen has to be there. The only problem is she can’t get there alone...


A geriatric day trip to the seaside gives Helen the opportunity for escape and a chance encounter in the street with Priscilla provides her with an ally. An arch manipulator, Helen manages to maneuver a bemused Priscilla onto the sea-bound coach and soon they’re hurtling away from the city, leaving an irate Frank swearing into the traffic. Reaching the coast, Helen pours on the charm (and the G & T’s) and convinces Priscilla to accompany her all the way to Ile de Re. Pooling their limited resources, they hit the road together by ferry, car, and foot in a race to get to the funeral. On this unforgettable journey, they find true friendship in one another – and have the time of their lives.


Tickets £5.50 - £8.00

‘And Finally… Phil Collins’ are recognised throughout the industry as the market leaders and definitive Phil Collins & Genesis tribute show. Now, celebrating their ‘10th Anniversary’ year together, this truly amazing eleven piece band which includes the ‘And Finally Horns’ faithfully re-create all the classic hits from the Phil Collins and Genesis timeless back catalogue. In 2017 they present a brand-new show that is truly enhanced by new lighting, stage sets and world class musicians to get even closer to that immense Phil Collins production ensuring an exciting spectacle is totally guaranteed. As always the ‘two drummer’ line up remains an integral part of the act and once again the addition of a dedicated percussionist performing the Louis Conte role, has moved the ‘And Finally’ experience both musically and visually to a whole different league.


Last year for the second time in a row ‘And Finally… Phil Collins’ were voted by the ‘Agents Association of Great Britain’ at the ‘National Tribute Music Awards’ as the ‘OFFICIAL UK No.1’.


PRODUCED BY TIM HARPER, CHRIS LLOYD & PETER ANDERSON

The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece.


The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.
