Professor Brian Cox Live!
Taking audiences to the edge of our current understanding about the origin and evolution of our Solar System and the Universe, Professor Brian Cox Live 2019 offers a fascinating insight into the workings of nature at the most fundamental level.
Whether an avid science reader or a total novice, Professor Cox makes challenging ideas accessible to all, exploring the vast, possibly infinite universe and our place within it from earth to the edges of the cosmos. Brian will once again be joined by co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage and award-winning comedian Robin Ince to oversee an audience Q&A, giving fans the chance to ask any question they have.
Stephen Bailey’s friendly, open brand of gossipy humour has made him one of the most enjoyable acts on the UK comedy circuit today. He is "annoyingly sharp" (The New Current) and in 2015, his show was nominated for the Amused Moose Comedy Award (Best Show).
He is a regular on ITV's Weekend with Aled Jones & Channel 5's Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side and has appeared on ITV2's Safeword & CelebAbility, ITVBe's Kate's Wardrobe Secrets, W's Celebrity Advice Bureau & Channel 5’s It's Not Me, It's You.
Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys
Having already recorded and produced over 10 acclaimed records, had multiple live sessions and airplay on BBC Radio 2 and 3, and his music regularly featured on Sky Arts and Sky Sports, it’s hard to believe that 24-year-old Cornwall-based folk singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Sam Kelly has only been performing live for 4 years.

One Woman Sex in the City
TJ Dawe – (Director and co-creator of One Man Star Wars Trilogy, One Man Lord of the Rings) has comedic whirling dervish Kerry Ipema bringing all our favourite characters to life as they brunch, banter, argue, support each other and swoon over men and Manolos.
There will be puns, cosmopolitans and audience participation. (Strictly 18+ ONLY)
This was the monster hit that launched the Shadows instrumental career and founded a nation of bespectacled guitarists dreaming of acquiring their very own Fender Stratocaster, so we are delighted to welcome ‘The Bootleg Shadows’ [ back by popular demand / on their first visit] to The XYZ Theatre.
You’ve Got Dragons
Based on the popular children’s story, this delightful tale of one child’s journey to come to terms with their dragons is a treat for the whole family. With live, original music, this highly visual, sensitive production is a humorous and touching exploration of the dragons we all face.
