“Ivo Graham will be taking to the stage on Wednesday, May 26 with The Game of Life. Join one of the most hilariously anxious blatherers in the business for more of his hilariously anxious blather as he tries to work out whether Big Daddy Graham got the skillz (anecdotes/banter/topical asides) to pay da billz (gas/water/electric)?

“On Thursday, May 27 the award-winning Al Murray will be bringing his alter ego The Pub Landlord to The Hawth for two performances. For over 20 years Al has filled arenas around the world, won numerous accolades and has successfully hosted an array of TV series which include Al Murray’s Happy Hour (ITV) and the ground-breaking sitcom Time Gentlemen Please (Sky One) which has become something of a modern day cult classic. Don’t miss this chance to see him live!
