Mark Thomas: 50 Things About Us
Mark uses his trademark style of storytelling, stand-up, subversion and really, really, well researched material to try and find out how the hell we ended up in the middle of this shit show.
50 Things About Us is a show about songs, gongs, loot, tradition, wigs, nicking, statues, art and identity. A sort of funny national edition of Who Do You Think You Are?
“Look, I have been doing this for 34 years. I have gone from stand-up to theatre and half way back again. It’s another slightly odd show, a sort of sweary, History Channel with laughs and creative mischief.
If you’ve seen my shows before, this one is going to be a show in the vein of 100 Acts of Minor Dissent.”
★★★★★ “A master of this type of entertainment…” THE ARTS DESK
★★★★ “This a show that comes from the guts” THE TELEGRAPH
★★★★ “Righteous, moving and funny… Mark Thomas should be on prescription” THE HERALD
It is a one-man performance which discusses popular conspiracy theories in-depth, such as Princess Diana, Titanic, Madeleine McCann and 9/11, The Moon Landing, The California Wildfires, Stevie Wonder and Mandela Effects. It doesn’t have much action except for one man speaking with a projector behind him, but it still manages to captivate anyone who watches it. It’s interesting and makes the audience curious to hear more.
Grace Campbell- Why I’m Never Going Into Politics
Grace Campbell is a force to be reckoned with. From a very young age, Grace has been taking on powerful men. She started with her father Alastair Campbell and his ex-boss Tony Blair, when she was growing up in and around Westminster. Since then Grace has challenged the patriarchy with her feminist collective The Pink Protest. And now, she wants to have a friendly fight with the world she grew up in; politics.
In Grace’s debut stand-up show, you can expect vagina jokes, why she thinks she caused Brexit, anecdotes of hanging out with Putin’s kids, plus trying (and failing) to bring the Labour Party back together Grace is rude, laugh-out-loud funny and wildly outspoken.
As seen on Channel 4 & BBC Politics Live.

Belly Dance Contest, Fashion show, Guest dancers & much much more! A night not to be missed in Belfast!
Compañía María “la Serrana” brings sizzling flamenco from the heart of Seville. In SANTUARIO Maira takes us into the mystical side of Andalucía, accompanied by the best gypsy artists of the moment. A truly passionate flamenco show, not to be missed!
In SANTUARIO will go deep into the flamenco styles that are somehow sacred for the flamenco community. In this show she brings to stage all the styles that were at the roots of constructing flamenco-art; The petenera that weeps the fate of the persecuted jews, the sensual zambra that were danced among gypsies and mores in the caves of the sacramonte, and the solemn soleares, which became the prayer of the gypsy community. There are styles calles saetas which we sing in precessions and alborea’s at the gypsy wedding.
With Santuario María will celebrate her 25 years on stage as a professional flamenco artist with a month-long international tour through Ireland, Holland, Belgium UK, and Malta. Of course, she will bring her dream team of singer Juan José Amador and Pepe de Pura, guitarist Luis Amador and spectacular dancer Antonio Moreno “”Polito””. For this show, local dancer Andrea da Silva will shine on stage with these Spanish artists.
‘John Shuttleworth’s Back’… is giving him trouble.
Years of strenuous DIY, not to mention playing his organ whilst perched upon a multi pack of Diet Sprite with no lumber support, has taken its toll.
But – ever the trouper – John returns to regale audiences with an evening of his classic songs (plus new ones and hilarious ‘back’ stories), pausing only to reapply his deep heat rub!
