July 2017

Phill Jupitus Tues. 25th July, 8pm

Tuesday, July 25, 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join stand-up comedian, poet, improviser, and TV stalwart Phill Jupitus for over an hour of tales, laughs and diversions. Watch in delight and/or horror as this experienced funnyman smashes laughs out of the chaos of his own life and the uncertain world that surrounds it. Adult themes and situations, but delivered childishly. Phill became a familiar face when he started as team captain on BBC2’s pop quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks. In addition he does live stand up shows all over the UK, and appears as a regular guest on QI (BBC2) and Alan Davies As yet Untitled (Dave), and in 2012 returned to television stand-up for the first time since 2000 with an appearance on Live at the Apollo (BBC1).

The show is suitable for ages 14+ (some strong language).

Doors at 7.30pm for 8pm start

£16 plus £1 booking fee at the Phoenix Stores and 10% online – to buy online click here

With a Blazers performance comes the rare opportunity to hear the regional expressions and individual styles of playing.

Newton Faulkner (music) Fri 20th Oct, 7.30pm (doors time)

Friday, October 20, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Big, beat-conscious and astonishingly diverse are not the adjectives that might have sprung immediately to mind with regard to Newton Faulkner in the past. He was the singer-songwriter once tagged ‘the British Jack Johnson’ and tossed in alongside sensitive, strumming troubadours in the tradition of Jackson Browne and James Taylor. He was the guy with the dreadlocks he had been cultivating since the age of 15, the one who flayed the hell out of an acoustic guitar whenever he played live. That was then. These days, Newton Faulkner is a different proposition, and his audacious new album, Human Love, is a colorful statement of intent. His fifth studio collection, and his first for new label BMG, it is an alluring maelstrom of rhythm and harmony. Embracing racing drums, African percussion, chanted choruses, ambient interludes and the most imposing hooks of his career to date.

Tickets at one price £22.50 plus £1 booking fee in the Phoenix Stores
