Your headliner for the evening is recent star of ITV's Dancing on Ice, Matt Richardson. Matt is a multi-award winning stand-up comedian and one of the most exciting names on the circuit.

Matt's has transformed from student stand-up to primetime TV presenter in just a few short, strange years. Along the way he has achieved the awards and acclaim other young comics can only dream of - first being named Heat Magazine's Weird Crush of the Year in 2014, before going on to feature in erotic fan fiction available on some of the internet's most prestigious erotic fan fiction websites.

Matt has hosted the Xtra Factor alongside Caroline Flack  ">  "An explosive show that left people with bellies aching from laughter" - Voice

"High wattage charisma from a talented young comic whose star is on the rise" - The Guardian

"Hilarious and Charming" - The Mirror

"Sharp, Funny and Warm" - Heat Magazine

Pierre Novellie is one of the best comedians in the United Kingdom.

Pierre is a correspondent on BBC2's The Mash Report hosted by Nish Kumar and performed on the most recent series of Stand Up Central on Comedy Central, as well as co-hosting the hit podcast BudPod with Phil Wang. As a live performer he was nominated for Best Club Comic at the Chortle Awards for three years running. His previous Edinburgh shows have been well received by both audience and critics alike, with his last two shows placing in the top 20 best reviewed comedy shows across the entire Edinburgh Festival in consecutive years.

 "Pierre Novellie is wonderful" - Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

 "A genuinely hilarious comedian" - Three Weeks

 "Very close to being a stand-up masterclass" - The List

Jarlath Regan is an all-rounder, but his talent for stand-up was spotted early. His first few gigs earned him places in the finals of every new act competition, tour support spots for Ardal O'Hanlon, Marc Maron and Jack Whitehall, invitations to the world's biggest comedy festivals and television appearances on the BBC, NBC and Comedy Central.

Jarlath is the presenter of the multi-award-winning global hit podcast An Irishman Abroad; and his other credits include Tonight at the Palladium (ITV), Stand up Central (Comedy Central) Russell Howard's Good News (BBC3) Comedy Central's The World Stands Up (Comedy Central), Last Comic Standing (NBC), Live at The Stand Comedy Club (BBC Radio Scotland), The Blame Game (BBC Radio Ulster) and The Apprentice You're Fired (TV3).

 "skilfully seeded stand-up that confirms Regan's abilities to move with belly laughs and tears in a single routine" - The Scotsman 

"More laughs in the first 15 minutes than most comedians can muster in a whole hour"  - Metro 

"Regan is an expert storyteller and this is a beautifully constructed show that I could have happily listened to for twice its length." - The Arts Desk

Annie McGrath is a comedian renowned for her joke writing skills and deadpan style. Annie wrote and starred in Channel 4's Girls Go Trolling and ITV2's @elevenish. She has appeared in numerous sketches on Sky Sports' Soccer AM (her football skills have even made it onto BBC3) and Annie was selected to be part of a line-up of alternative stand-up and character comedians on Channel 4's Sparks series.

She was awarded one of Dave's Top Ten Funniest Jokes of the Edinburgh Fringe in 2016 and The Telegraph's Funniest One-Liners from the Fringe 2017. Annie was a finalist in the Funny Women Awards. She also did a tweet about spinach that went viral.

 "The audience seems at her mercy with every line she speaks" - EdFringe Review

The Searchers and Hollies Experience

A very special Matinee show combining two of the biggest bands and hits of the 60's performed by the amazing FOD Band.

The Searchers and Hollies Experience The best of both worlds brings to the stage the magical hits of these two legendary harmony bands. Bringing back memories of the most high-energy decade in pop music history. Let the haunting melodies transport you to that exciting era when millions of records were sold.

The Searchers, from Liverpool made their debut with the rise of MerseyBeat. The 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. They had many other hits and became part of the British invasion of the American charts alongside The Beatles.

The Hollies, from Manchester were also pushed forward with the rise of MerseyBeat as they played many of the same venues as the Mersey groups. The Hollies are known as the most successful British singles band ever, having had chart hits in every decade since the 60s. Catchy melodic tunes are their trademark and they have had phenomenal chart success. Stay, I Cant Let Go, Bus Stop, Sorry Suzanne, He Aint 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.
