Dave Spikey - A Funny Thing Happened….I shot Derek Rigby

This show was simply going to be called “I shot Derek Rigby” which Dave has freely admitted to ; in fact this has never been in doubt - there were several witnesses - but (there’s always a “but”) he thought that might be a little too weird a title so, although he will talk about the shooting in some depth (Because, to be fair, it was funny to all present with the exception of Derek), he will concentrate on the many other funny things that happen all the time.

Funny things happen at home, at work, out shopping, at the Vets, in Prison, out with his eccentric Gran and in Hong Kong - obviously. Dave’s comedy radar has always instinctively drawn him to these small out-of-the-ordinary events that wash over most of us and pass us by. Once identified, he analysis and elaborates them in his own way whilst at the same time reminding us that not only have we too witnessed them, they’ve probably happened to us!

It’s this added dimension, this comedy of association that elevates the events to laugh-out-loud funny. No wonder Time Out magazine said of him, “Not only a very funny comedian but one of the finest raconteurs around”

Des Hinks: One Night Stand-Up (Adults Only)

If you went to Norris Bank or Stockport Grammar, or you're a Stockport County fan, you'll probably know Des.

If you went to Sams Bar, Brannigans, Squares, Cobdens or Heaven And Hell in the glory days of the noughties, you've probably bumped into Des, had a pint with Des, or even had a cheeky kiss and cuddle with Des.

And even if you don't know who Des is, it's still definitely worth a tenner to come and support the debut stand-up show of a Stockport lad who's been on Countdown (which was quite funny), once took all his clothes off during a best man speech (which was even funnier) and lasted just eight days in a temporary job at Tesco during the Coronavirus outbreak before getting sacked for writing a comedy diary which went viral on Facebook (which tickled the nation).

If you're lucky, Des might even sing and dance for you as well, plus there's the small matter of the funniest quote a sexual partner has ever said in the history of the modern world.

The Green Room: Simon Kempston

"

Tickets for The Green Room: Simon Kempston at The Stockport Plaza

"Scottish singer-songwriter and leading acoustic fingerstyle guitarist Simon Kempston has toured the world performing his highly original, contemporary acoustic folk/blues songs and music, and is a unique talent.

His beautifully crafted folk-tinged material showcases his incredible, distinctive and intricate finger style guitar work – an exciting blend of the folk-baroque, blues and classical styles, and his gently nuanced, compelling tenor vocals.

An inspiring, poetic lyricist, Simon’s live performances are intense and impassioned, the subject matter chiefly Scottish, yet with universal appeal.

This first-time Greater Manchester concert is not to be missed.

‘One of Scotland’s very best singer-songwriters’ (Sunday Herald). ‘Stunning talent’ (STV). 'Beautiful tunes, infinitely talented’ (BBC Radio 3).

Younger brother Sam (Corey Haim) works hard to eradicate the ghouls but his older brother (Jason Patric) falls in love with the group's lone female (Jami Gertz). Soon, he finds that he's gradually becoming a vampire himself.

Shot on location in the coastal California town of Santa Cruz, The Lost Boys became a pop-culture phenomenon thanks to its attractive young stars, offbeat soundtrack, and hip, clever marketing campaign. The film's tagline: "Sleep all day, Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire", perfectly captured its knowing mixture of attiutude and gore.

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Bursting with the energy of the original MGM film, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers is all boisterous fun and romance that harkens back to the glory days of the movie musical. A truly rollicking adventure that teaches that it takes a bride to turn seven unshaven unkempt brothers into manly gentle men and to turn desire into romance.

Set in Oregon in 1850, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers tells the story of Millie, a young bride living in the 1850's Oregon wilderness. Her plan to civilize and marry off her six rowdy brothers-in-law to ensure the success of her own marriage backfires when the brothers, in their enthusiasm, kidnap six women from a neighboring town to be their brides.

Sleeping Beauty – a spectacular fairy-tale

Music by Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky

After the sell-out performances of Nutcracker and Swan Lake last year, Russian National Ballet returns to the UK.

Every child’s favourite fairy-tale, Sleeping Beauty is the classic story of love and innocence, mystery and magic set to Tchaikovsky’s sublime score.

Stunning choreography, sumptuous costumes and wonderful sets form the fantasy world in which the Lilac Fairy struggles against the evil Carabosse.

Outline based on the fairy-tale by Charles Perrault, the Sleeping Beauty tells of the Princess Aurora, cursed at her christening by the evil Carabosse to prick her finger one day on a spindle and die.

Thanks to the timely intervention of the Lilac Fairy, she doesn’t die, but sleeps for a hundred years.

Woken by a prince, who has battled through the Enchanted Forest to reach her, they marry at a ceremony attended by nursery rhyme characters like Puss in Boots and all the other forest creatures.

There are no scores more successful in supporting the full range of ballet than those by Tchaikovsky. Highlights include the Famous ‘Rose Adagio’ when Princess Aurora is introduced to four princes.

A wonderful evening out and memories which you will cherish long after the final curtain falls.

Kindly Note: This performance is performed to play back music.

The Thunder Girls

The Thunder Girls
  • Cast: Beverley Callard, Carol Harrison, Gary Webster, Coleen Nolan

Fame and greed tore their friendship apart, they haven’t spoken in decades…

Ever wondered what goes on behind closed doors when legendary bands meet up to discuss a reunion?  What’s really going on behind the hugs and kisses at those reunion press conferences?

The Thunder Girls were a successful ‘80s girl band until lead singer, Chrissie, sensationally quit the band to pursue a solo career taking with her, Rick, the Band’s manager.  Chrissie broke the Girl Code as Rick was also the boyfriend of band mate, Roxanne.

At the reunion dinner from hell, Chrissie tries to reunite the band to save herself from bankruptcy after being conned out of her fortune by her toyboy husband.

But is there a price which can heal the wounds?

Or maybe some friendships never die, even if you want them to.

30 years later, can lightning strike twice?

Starring Beverley Callard, Carol Harrison, Gary Webster and Coleen Nolan.
