Raymond Froggatt Walker Theatre Friday 18th May 2018 An evening in the company of the mercurial mind of Raymond Froggatt is an evening to be remembered. To spend time in the company of this doyen of pop music is both a privilege and a joy. Pop sensation Raymond Froggatt came onto the stage to start the show and he appeared a little breathless. Had he run from the furthest dressing room, did the...

Forget Me Not Rob Gee Walker Theatre 23 March 2017 If it was Mr Gee’s aim to confuse us as much as his characters appeared to be in this one man show, he was highly successful. However one is certain that the confusion occurred more by accident than good management. The show is billed as part social commentary, park black comedy and part Cluedo. Confused? You will be. The story follows an ex-...

Justin Moorhouse Walker Theatre Sunday 19th February 2017 Not surprisingly enough given our current political turmoil people  just love comedy, so turnout for a Sunday night in February was impressive. It was obvious there were a lot of fans in expecting Justin Moorhouse to be as funny  if not funnier, than his last visit to the town. Did he succeed? More in a moment. First of all we turn our...
