Silly Cow - NEW DATES!
By Ben Elton

With regret, due to the current government advice about coronavirus, we have postponed the run of SILLY COW to 14th - 18th July 2020.

Silly Cow is a slick, razor-tongued modern satire on the viciousness of tabloid journalism with an ingeniously dramatic dénouement. Doris is a newspaper columnist and reviewer with a talent for caustic insults and career assassination. She is being sued by the actress Trudi Hobson, after writing an article which savaged the respected thespian with accusations of small talent and large thighs. The queen of spleen isn’t worried: she’s got a job offer, a plan for a television show, and the cleavage to help the judge see things her way. But she’s about to discover that even journalists can’t escape reaping what they have sown, and that there’s nothing quite as dramatic as an actress’s revenge.

A Tribute to Fleetwood Mac
By Fleetingwood Mac

Fleetingwood Mac, an exciting tribute to the legendary band Fleetwood Mac, returning to the Plaza after their previous fantastic show.

Not just another tribute band, with tacky wigs and fancy dress outfits. Instead they wanted to bring across the live sound of Fleetwood Mac, with just one guitar, a keyboard, a drum kit, a man on the bass and of course, the vocals!

As much as they aim to create a genuine Fleetwood Mac sound, they can’t help but give it a modern edge, it’s just the way they play. How else are five people supposed to play tribute to a band that have lasted nearly 50 years? A band who have over time have featured eight different Guitarists & Vocalists. A band that tour arenas all over the world, with six extra touring musicians. A band that started out as part of the sixties British Blues Invasion and ended up as one of the biggest mainstream groups of the eighties. Let’s not even get into the scandals, relationships and excesses...

They work hard in rehearsals to get the details right and do justice to some classic songs that play a huge part in many people’s lives. They also want to introduce the songs to a new generation of Fleetwood Mac fans, who weren’t even born when the band were in their prime. Fleetingwood Mac are five young musicians who love the music, and want to share the music of one of the worlds greatest bands to a wider audience.

The Traveling Wilburys Tribute Show
By TW Experience

The late 1980’s saw the birth of one of the most famous and memorable supergroups of all time,  The Traveling Wilburys. Featuring five individual icons in their own right, this formidable team created an album that completely rocked the music industry and sold over five million copies worldwide.  Pooling the considerable talents of George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty and Bob Dylan, The Wilburys were a real force to be reckoned with and created a sound and style so unique, that even to this day there has never been anything quite like it.

With The Wilburys never actually going on tour, perhaps party due to the untimely death of Roy Orbison in 1988, played here by Paul Hopkins, their fans never got to see them all together in a live concert experience. With that in mind, Paul has joined up with five other very talented singers and musicians, who together have formed this incredible Traveling Wilbury tribute show. With an easy relaxed style, excellent vocals and musicality and a great respect for each others talent, these guys will give you an amazing night of entertainment that will be like nothing you’ve seen before.
