Fired from his skiffle band, Francis Henshall becomes minder to Roscoe Crabbe, a small time East End hood, now in Brighton to collect £6,000 from his fiancée's dad. But Roscoe is really his sister Rachel posing as her own dead brother, who's been killed by her boyfriend Stanley Stubbers. Holed up at The Cricketers' Arms, the permanently ravenous Francis spots the chance of an extra meal ticket and takes a second job with one Stanley Stubbers, who is hiding from the police and waiting to be re-united with Rachel. To prevent discovery, Francis must keep his two guvnors apart. Simple. The play opened at The National Theatre in 2011 with James Corden in the role of Frances, and was directed by Nicholas Hytner to huge acclaim and subsequently transferred to Broadway.

'An absolute blast, one of the most exciting gigs of the year. A brilliant all-round package!' London Jazz News With Andy Davies (trumpet), Alex Webb (piano), Andrew Cleyndert (bass) and Alfonso Vitale (drums) the group traces the explosive music of American saxophonist Julian 'Cannnonball' Adderley from his first session as leader in 1955 through work with Miles Davis to the soul-jazz of the 1960s. The repertoire includes Adderley brothers classics like 'Things Are Getting Better', 'Work Song', 'Del Sasser', 'Sack o'Woe' and many others. We cannot wait to hear this gig in the intimate surroundings of the Pump House Theatre here in Watford! 'Tony Kofi's Portrait of Cannonball started the festival, setting the bar high for subsequent acts. Tearing into the Adderley canon, Kofi's spirited approach was supported by a tight rhythm section' Jazzwise Magazine

Formerly the old pumping station which supplied water to the Watford area, the Pump House was opened as a venue in early 70s. The site is now an auditorium seating 124 and a live music venue. A community-minded endeavour, the Pump house is dedicated to providing facilities for local arts groups.
Located just a short walk from Watford town centre, there is free car parking at the venue and bus numbers 142 and 258 stop close by. Watford train station and Bushey station are both within walking distance and the Colne Valley/Ebury Way cycle track passes in front of the venue.
