Telephone:  Box office: 01264 368368
Event:  Graffiti Classics 2024 - 7.30pm - 16 strings, 8 dancing feet and 4 voices with one aim: to make classical music wickedly funny and fantastically exhilarating for everyone, young and old. Graffiti Classics bursts the elitist boundaries of the traditional String Quartet with its hilarious all-singing, all-dancing musical comedy show. It’s a classical concert, a gypsy-folk romp, an opera, a stand-up comedy set and a brilliant dance show - all rolled into one! Graffiti Classics never fails to get audiences laughing, clapping, and singing along. It’s an uplifting and virtuosic variety of musical styles, all tied together with cheeky audience interaction. Graffiti Classics grew from graduates from London’s top musical conservatoires whilst street-performing in London’s Covent Garden. They decided that classical music should be made fun and inclusive for everyone, creating a unique virtuosic comedy show.

Telephone:  Box office: 01962 840440
Event:  Comedy - Milton Jones: Ha!Milton - 7.30pm - This is not a musical. Milton Jones is tone deaf and has no sense of rhythm, but at least he doesn't make a song and dance about it. He has more important things to discuss. Like giraffes… and there's a bit about tomatoes. You might know him from Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo or Radio 4. Or that time he stood for the Scottish National Party, fought a hard campaign, but in the end had to respect the wishes of the people of Cardiff. A whole new show of daftness. You know it makes sense. WARNING *contains jokes from the start

As well as hosting Live at the Apollo, fronting Radio 4’s Best Medicine and starting a comedy school, she’s become a foster parent. Didn’t know that about her? Well, until now she hasn’t been able to talk about it on stage, she hasn’t even told the kids in her care that she’s a comedian. Oh, and she uses a different name - she’s the Bruce Wayne of comedy but without the mansions. So, come and join “Louise” as she lifts the lid on social workers, first aid training and what not to do when a vicar searches for you on YouTube.
