Dylan Moran: Off the Hook

Dylan Moran: Off The Hook

Moran plays up to the stereotype of the bumbling, drunken Irishman, but his comedy is much more intelligent than mere cliché-mongering: on stage he is uniquely charismatic, a foul-mouthed mixture of lovable and misanthropic, and always very, very funny.

Moran'll be on your radar in a very big way if you know your comedy. Think iconic Bernard Black in Black Books, as well as film roles – alongside Simon Pegg in Run, Fatboy, Run and Shaun of the Dead.

As well as telly ventures, Moran's stand-up career is prolific. He won the So You Think You're Funny? award in 1993 and the Perrier in 1996 and has a number of stand-up DVDs, among them Monster Live, Like, Totally … Dylan Moran Live, What It Is Live, Aim Low … The Best of Dylan Moran and Yeah Yeah Live in London.

Rick Wakeman:Piano Portraits In Concert

Currently celebrating his 50th year as a professional musician, keyboard player, songwriter and broadcaster, Rick Wakeman recently made chart history when his Piano Portraits album became the first solo piano album to enter the UK’s Top 10.

Initially inspired by the unprecedented reaction to his performance of David Bowie’s Life On Mars on BBC Radio 2 in early 2016, Piano Portraits features instrumental versions of hits Rick originally performed on (Space Oddity, Morning Has Broken and Wondrous Stories) as well as others specifically chosen for their wonderful melodies, including Stairway To Heaven, Help and Eleanor Rigby.

He has also added a selection of some of his favourite classical pieces (Berceuse, Clair de Lune and Swan Lake).

The show will include at least eight of the pieces on the album, plus other musical surprises, and will be interspersed with hilarious anecdotes from this well-known and accomplished raconteur.

Rick’s one man shows are extremely popular and consistently sell out – a trend that looks likely to continue with the success of Piano Portraits.

Dorking Halls

Opened in 1931, mainly to act as a venue for the Leith Hill Music Competition, Dorking Halls was the property of the festival until WWII during which they were commandeered by the Meat Marketing Board and the army. In 1946, the halls were thriving, with community events being held there, including flower shows, scout meetings and dances. They were refurbished in 1997 and the venue became a location for theatre, comedy and music, as well as films.

The halls are located in the centre of town and there is parking available at the side and rear of the venue as well as opposite in the council offices car park.
