MW-How You Can Almost Win_EYES_Assembly Two_Patrick Balls

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.

★★★★★ Telegraph

★★★★ 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

GEORGE EGG: MOVABLE FEAST *****RESCHEDULED DATE 27TH FEBRUARY 2021*****

GEORGE EGG RETURNS TO KETTERING ARTS CENTRE WITH HIS BRAND NEW SHOW!

SATURDAY 27TH FEBRUARY 2021 7.30PM (DOORS 7PM)

BUY TICKETS £14/£12

A5 flyer_GEORGE SQUARE template

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.

“a culinary Bill Bailey, with chopping boards instead of keyboards. It is a multi-sensory delight” The Scotsman

“Brilliantly funny” Jay Rayner in The Observer

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

“The wonderfully talented George Egg is genuinely unique” The Independent

“a genius… he is the friendly face of anarchy, the anarchic face of food and the foodie face of comedy” Scotland on Sunday

“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.
