Neil Oliver

***‘The Story of The British Isles in 100 places’***

 

Neil was born to love Great Britain. During his 20 years travelling to every corner, and whilst filming BBC2’s ‘Coast’, he’s fallen in love all over again. From north to south, east to west it cradles astonishing beauty. The human story here is a million years old, and counting. The tolerant, easy-going peace we enjoy has been hard won and the places Neil’s seen have given him a unique view and understanding of British history.

Hear in his amusing and entertaining way what it all means to him, and why we need to cherish and celebrate our wonderful countries.

Paul Zerdin

Paul Zerdin

Paul Zerdin and his dysfunctional puppet family are back by popular demand with a brand-new UK tour. As well as starring everyone’s favourites Sam, Albert and Baby, there’ll be his new bodyguard, an urban fox, some hilarious audience participation - and a talking ice cream - all using a mixture of master puppeteering, state of the art animatronic wizardry and a unique blend of edgy comedy.   It's a quirk of British theatre that a man can get a standing ovation for spending the best part of 75 minutes on a stage talking to himself. It goes without saying that Paul’s skills are top notch – there's not a hint of movement from his lips and he has a strong command of a range of different voices but it’s his control of the puppets and sense of timing that brings his characters to life!   Don’t miss out on your chance to see the winner of America’s Got Talent and one of Britain’s finest entertainers.   ‘’The best ventriloquist Britain has discovered for many years…’’  The Stage

*“If you think the words ‘brilliant’ and ‘ventriloquist’ have no place in the same sentence, go and see Paul Zerdin for some brutal re-education”  * Evening Standard
