The Rolling Stones Story, Friday 03 February

The Rolling Stones have dominated Rock ’n’ Roll music since the 1960s and were at the forefront of the British Invasion of bands that conquered the US in 1964. They ran neck and neck with The Beatles in the popularity stakes with the late sixties and early seventies considered by many as their Golden Age.

Their live shows are legendary and The Stones musical legacy is up there with the very best. They’ve recorded some of the most phenomenal Rock ‘n’ Roll songs of all time – Satisfaction, Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Not Fade Away, Honky Tonk Woman, Brown Sugar, Start Me Up…to name just a few.

You can now relive all these classic hits in The Rolling Stones Story, a high energy concert celebrating the music of the World’s Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band. Let’s Spend The Night Together in the company of Mick and the boys and you will experience a truly authentic Rolling Stones spectacle; complete with an awesome production, the finest musicians and the world’s No.1 Mick Jagger lookalike in Paul Ashworth.


Lloyd Griffith- One Tonne of Fun, Saturday 04 February

After Lloyd’s last tour was interrupted by ‘you know what’ and ended up lasting 8 years or so, he’s BACK with a brand-new, fresh stand-up show for 2023. This is Lloyd’s biggest tour to date, and he is pumped/really needs you to come. Since school Lloyd has always been a show off, doing anything he can to make people laugh, and 20-odd years later, nothing’s changed. There’ll be his unique bag of stand up, dubious impressions, and obviously a sprinkling of his (incredible) singing. Lloyd Griffith is: One Tonne of Fun.

Lloyd was recently one of the first national anthem singers to sing the new anthem at various football matches around the country. As a boy, he always wanted to play for Grimsby town football club, instead he was able perform on the pitch before the Grimsby Town v Crewe Alexandra match, to a packed crowd.

The show features 3 fantastic singers who are all accompanied by a superb live band of musicians with that authentic Tennessee sound coupled with authentic stage set and state of the art production that will transport you all the way hand clapping and toe-tapping to Nashville and back in one night. One thing is for sure if it’s Country music you like then this is the only show in town!
