  • Hiding from Wobbly Bob and other Stories

    Barnsley based poet, storyteller and playwright Lee Pollard brings his smash hit, one man, comedy poetry and spoken word show "Hiding from Wobbly Bob and other Stories" to The Paramount Theatre. Lee has recently taken an enforced absence from presenting poetry after badly burning the inside of his ear with the filling from a meat pie. Now, having fully recovered, he is back with a show which has been described as "quite funny in places" by his wife, Tina. During the performance you will hear stories and poems about such things as: club trips, “special" shoes, Barnsley weddings, vol au vents and balaclavas. The show will also feature a rendition of a deeply moving and poignant tale of a lost childhood friendship entitled "Never Set Fire to Your Friends", a stark warning of the consequences of the inappropriate use of creosote and other flammable wood preservatives. Lee's stories are regularly featured on BBC Radio Sheffield and in a range of venues across Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.

  • Daphne's Flight

    Twenty one years after their debut self titled album and one and only UK tour, the tour de force that is Daphne's flight is set to return to the stage in 2017.

    With a complete line-up of all five original members and a brand new studio album, this is the tour that fans have been waiting for since their first impromptu performance at Cambridge festival in 1995, when they took a packed club tent by storm and decided the time was right to join forces. Drawing on their collective wealth of talent and varied styles, each of them accomplished songwriters, musicians and renowned singers, it was the combination of all five voices, a powerhouse of harmonies, that left audiences breathless and brought them much critical acclaim.

    As well as the many original songs they each brought to the group, they breathed new life into classic contemporary covers from The Beach Boys to The Beatles, Bill Withers to Randy Newman and anyone who saw Daphne's Flight live will tell you their version of E.C. Ball's 'Father Adieu' was the stuff of musical legend!

    With as much energy and enthusiasm as they ever had, Daphne's are truly excited to be reuniting again and hope you will join them in the next leg of the flight for what promises to be a memorable year. Chocks away!

    Starring:Helen Watson, Melanie Harrold, Julie Matthews, Chris While, Christine Collister
