Fleetingwood Mac
By Fleetingwood Mac

A young and exciting new tribute to the legendary band, Fleetwood Mac.

We didn’t just want to be  another tribute band, with tacky wigs and fancy dress outfits. Instead we 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 we aim to create a genuine Fleetwood Mac sound, we can’t help but give it a modern edge, it’s just the way we play. How else are five people supposed to play tribute to a band that have lasted nearly 50 years?

Songs you can expect to hear at our shows: Rhiannon, Go Your Own Way, Sisters of the Moon, Oh Well, Tusk, I’m so Afraid, Everywhere, Songbird, Gold Dust Woman, Don’t Stop, You Make Loving Fun, Black Magic Woman, Dreams, Little Lies, Gypsy, Say You Love Me, The Chain, Landslide, Seven Wonders, Silver Spring, Second Hand News, Isn’t it Midnight, Sara, As Long As You Follow, Oh Diane, Big Love, Blue Letter, Hold Me, Green Manalishi, World Turning, Edge Of Seventeen.

We also want to introduce the songs to a new generation of Fleetwood Mac fans, who just like ourselves, weren’t even born when the band were in their prime. We do not go on stage pretending to be Fleetwood Mac, instead we go on as who we 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.

Silent Mind
By Theatre for Life Youth Theatre

As a society consumed by social media & device addiction, controlling overthinking is imperative for good mental health. Creating the ultimate ‘Silent Mind’ is very hard to achieve, however promoting wellbeing & mindfulness can act as early intervention. ‘Silent Mind’ is an interactive piece of theatre which aims to promote awareness on Mental Health, whilst looking at how to support those who may be affected by the issues explored in the play.

The brain requires delicate intertwining, the waves dancing to find their own unique rhythm, finely tuned, coming together to create empathy, cohesion and synchronicity. Gliding effortlessly into frequencies that release endorphin and dopamine surges ... no need for chemicals ... caffeine, drugs, endless hours of social media fixations and extreme highs ... each wave naturally performing in complete unity ... To create the perfect SILENT MIND.
An immersive and empowering piece of theatre, devised and performed by the Theatre for Life Youth Theatre. 

Audiences are also invited to a post performance Q&A to provide feedback on the piece and to ask questions about the subject matters explored in Silent Mind. This will be held in the main theatre after the show.

Please note this piece is not suitable for under 14 years old. 

Safety Warning - Flashing lights and haze will be used in this production.

Supported using public funding by Arts Council England.

The Searchers and Hollies Experience
By The Searchers and Hollies Experience

The Best of Both Worlds brings to the stage the magical hits of two legendary harmony bands. Each hit brings back a memory of the most high energy decade in pop music history.

The Searchers, from Liverpool, made their debut with the rise of MerseyBeat. Their very first recording Sweets For My Sweet went to number 1 in the charts. This was followed at No.2 by their third single Sugar And Spice. They then went on to have many more memorable chart hits. Who can forget Needles And Pins and When You Walk In The Room?

The Hollies are known as the most successful British Merseybeat singles band ever, having had chart hits in every decade since the 60s.  Catchy, melodic tunes are their trademark and they have had phenominal chart success. Stay, I Can't Let Go, Bus Stop, Sorry Suzanne, He Ain't Heavy He's My Brother, Here I Go Again, Just One Look and the haunting Air That I Breathe are just a few of their hits.

The Searchers and Hollies Experience is performed by the FOD Band who have been together since 1983. They have a particular insight into the Searchers music having backed Tony Jackson, the original lead singer of The Searchers. The FOD Band love the harmonies and the melodic material these groups recorded. This is what motivated them to combine the two groups hits into this exciting 2 hour tribute show featuring over 30 hit songs.

Mary Shelley
By Helen Edmundson

Frankenstein is one of the most famous horror stories. But what is the story of the woman who wrote it?

It follows her tempestuous relationships with her father and step-sisters, and her experiences in a war-ravaged Europe.
