In 2017, Mark Watson – a man prone to considerable anxiety, with multiple phobias and a history of piss-poor self-esteem – was asked to go on Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls. It really wasn’t for him at all because his favourite things include safety, comfort, food and not being scared and miserable. But the experience changed the shambolic comedian for the better, and now he’s written a sort of motivational talk about what it taught him. But still with jokes.
★★★★ Times | Independent | Metro | Time Out | Chortle
★★★★★ “Quite unlike anything else I’ve seen in almost 20 years of covering the Fringe…witty, warm, perfectly judged” Telegraph
★★★★ “This is a stand-up operating at the very top of his game” Independent
★★★★“He always displays an innate understanding of what the audience wants…creating a bespoke experience for every gig, an added flourish to a strong hour of stand-up” Chortle
★★★★ “A quick-fire hour of fun” Metro
Direct from the Edinburgh Fringe 2019 comes a BRAND NEW comedy-and-cooking show for 2020/21 from the award-winning stand-up who makes real gourmet food live on stage.
In his first show, ‘Anarchist Cook’, George made a meal in a hotel room with the complimentary appliances. In his second, ‘DIY Chef’, he was stuck in a shed cooking with tools. In this show he’s on the road! It’s time for Planes, Trains and Automob-meals (sorry).
During an evening of live cooking and laugh-out-loud comedy about making food on the move George demonstrates ways to procure items from the train buffet trolley, beat the rip-off restaurant prices at the airport and even shows you how to turn unexpected road-works into a picnic. It’s cheeky, anarchic and creative, a multisensory show rich in humour and sprinkled with handy hacks. Real gourmet food cooked live in the most unconventional ways and with the opportunity to taste the results at the end, provided you can stop laughing.

“There is a mischievousness about Egg’s humour that is deeply loveable ” Grace Dent in The Guardian

“a hilarious show with surprisingly good food” The Times
“it is refreshing to encounter a performer who really is unique” The Telegraph
“this is a triumph of out-of-the-box thinking – and tastes lovely too” Metro

THE MAYOR OF KETTERING PRESENTS HER FAREWELL CONCERT
WITH GPQ PART OF NORTHAMPTONSHIRE’S LONG ESTABLISHED GINGER PIG BAND
TICKETS ARE ON SALE FOR THIS INCREDIBLE CHARITY MUSIC EVENT IN AID OF THE BRITISH HEART FOUNDATION.
Ginger Pig is a Northampton based band that started in the town’s Black Bottom Jazz Club. The band has travelled worldwide playing at Jazz & Blues festivals and important social events, and has now completed some 100 overseas tours.
Ginger Pig plays Jazz & Blues with a New Orleans flavour, which embraces a time span from Louis Armstrong through to Fats Domino.
Co-founders, the Richardsons brothers, still play regularly as key members of the Ginger Pig in one of their own venues, Auntie Ruth’s in Northampton town centre. Finlay Milne has been playing lead trumpet since 1988 when he was a 24 year old. Ginger Pig, besides being influenced by the music of London in the “swinging 60’s”, has had a long term connection with New Orleans, Louisiana.
The New Orleans connection has resulted in Alton Purnell, Louis Nelson, Kid Thomas Valentine, Don Ewell, Kid Sheik Cola, Freddie Kohlman, Freddie Lonzo, Tuba Fats, Trumpet Black, Glen David Andrews, Sam Lee, Sammy Rimington & many other Jazz legends performing and touring with the band.
GPQ is the cut down version of the band but inches above its weight with brass, keyboards,guitar, and drums plus bags of fun and friendliness.
GPQ played to a sell out crowd at the Mayor’s first fundraising event in her year of office and now returns to play at her final and farewell fundraiser.

“Abandon me to this imagery with words that shoot the moon…”
Composer, acoustic guitarist and singer Chris Brown created hazeyjane as the vehicle for the musical expression of his own original songs and adaptations of selected pieces of poetry.
Most rewarding to a listening and discerning audience, hazeyjane aim to produce mellow and melodic music, intense and intimate, dreamy and dynamic, relaxing and hauntingly atmospheric. They have played concerts all over the UK, including The Stables in Wavendon, Zeffirelli’s jazz bar restaurant in Ambleside, and Eyemouth Hippodrome (Scotland) as well as having appeared at numerous arts centres, libraries, churches, restaurants, folk and other music clubs and festivals.
The band is about to release their second album, Anima Rising. In addition to its quintet of members, this will include several special guest contributions and will reflect entirely the current essence and ethos of the band and capture what one recent commentator described as its ‘luscious, full, hypnotic sound’.
“I loved hazeyjane’s E.P. Kanre and can’t wait to hear the new album. Do check this band out. It’s lovely, beautifully crafted music.” — Dave Pegg, Fairport Convention
“…absolutely love it. Beautiful. From the very first notes, it brought to mind one of my all time favourite albums, Hejira by Joni Mitchell. I couldn’t pay it a better compliment than that.” — Ric Sanders, Fairport Convention
“…lovely, lovely stuff!” — Gary Clark, Danny Wilson
Following on from the success of Britain’s Got Talent 2018, and his debut comedy Tour ‘The Tank Top Tour – 2019’, unique and hilarious musical comedian, Robert White, brings you more, but this time with a little of his personal journey, life ups and downs and some quirky tales into the bargain.
Tank Top Tour: Take Two – ‘Troubles and Treats’
“Pitch-perfect delivery…Just brilliant” ★★★★ Chortle
“Jaw-dropping riot” ★★★★ The List
“Robert White tries hard – and spectacularly succeeds” ★★★★ ThreeWeeks

Using smoke and mirrors and hidden trapdoors we’ll show you how this sure-footed feline fools both the King and the Ogre to take his master all the way to the top.
With a host of puppets, a working windmill and an avalanche of fruit and nuts come and see this classic furry tail, it’s the cat’s whiskers!
