Russell Brand - Re:Birth
Following a series of sold-out preview shows in November and December 2016, Russell Brand announces a new stand-up tour of UK and Ireland.

Russell said re the show: "How do we make sense of the madness of our lives once we become parents? What am I going to tell my daughter about conformity and responsibility? What happens if she grows up to be like me or, worse, date someone like me?"

Since rising to fame in 2003, Russell Brand has established himself as one of one of the world’s most celebrated stand-up comedians. His acclaimed tours include 2006’s Shame, 2007’s Only Joking, 2009’s Scandalous (which marked his US live debut) and 2013’s critically acclaimed and hugely successful Messiah Complex, which was also a best-selling DVD.

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain
The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has become a global sensation and nothing short of a UK national treasure. Their new show, charts the Ukes rise from curiosity to virtuosity, from village hall to the Royal Albert Hall. The Ukes of GB have performed for the British Royal Family and at the BBC Proms, but heretics they remain, poking fun at the cultural elite, defying you to believe their own hype, bemused by all the hot air. Not only this but given the time of year the Ukes are adding a little festive frivolity to the show. This is definitely not shameless seasonal cashing in, just a little midwinter mischief and a chance for the audience to play or sing-a-long to the odd well worn Christmas number. Watch the tutorials online , learn the parts and join in live.

On an on-going "hand-luggage only" world tour, the Ukes provide pure entertainment, dead-pan British humour and irresistible foot-tapping music. They are masters of the unexpected, whether re-imagining folk songs, twisting classical music favourites, uncovering quirky versions of rock covers, or playing the performers' own all-original compositions.

“Iconoclastic. Unabashed genre crashing antics. Nothing is spoof proof." Sunday Times

“Most people have to die before they become immortal. These ukulele superstars have no such worries." New Musical Express
