Terry Pratchett's Wyrd Sisters

Adapted by Stephen Briggs
Directed by Martina Burns

Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare's Macbeth and then turns it up 'till the knob comes off.

It's all there - a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in peril.

And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction? Three witches; Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, self-opinionated, powerful), Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naïve, fond of occult jewellery and bunnies).

X Factor Finalists 2013

X Factor Finalists 2013

Sam is a 19 year old singer/songwriter from Essex. Heʼs been performing since the tender age of eight and he started writing his own music when he was just thirteen, intent, even then, on pursuing a career as a singer. Sam has been involved in various projects on his journey, including a
stint in the West End as well as being in a mixed teen band managed by ex-Spice Girl, Geri Halliwell, which he left in June 2011 to pursue his ambition to be a solo artist. Samʼs has a remarkable work ethic, great determination and dedication and has been lucky enough to work with many well respected names in the music industry. Prior to his recent participation in the 2013 X Factor, Sam worked tirelessly, gigging around the country, often for free to build a fan base. His efforts paid off and he has gained many thousands of loyal supporters which have dubbed themselves ʻCallafansʼ and Samʼs 'Callafan Armyʼ have had several mentions in national press and news media! Sam is now managed by renowned hit producer, John McLaughlin, former manager to Busted and McFly, who is based at the BoomBox studio in Glasgow where Sam has spent so much of his time that he now
considers it his second home. Most recently, Sam was delighted to make it through to the live finals of the UK's X Factor. Having made it to seventh place in the competition and earned his place on the X Factor Tour, Sam left the show in week 6 and says ʻThe X Factor was the most amazing experience of my entire lifeʼ. Since his exit from the live finals, Sam has been performing non-stop to packed venues across the country but has still found time to get back into the studio to complete his debut album which he plans to release this year.

Slick hair & scuffed-up shoes. Donʼt ask, itʼs an East London thing... apparently. But when Kingsland arenʼt busy being trendy theyʼre online interacting with an ever-growing legion of loyal fans. Connor (19), Josh (20) Matt (23), Thompson (22) and Jay (19), all live, work and play in
one of the most vibrant parts of the city, so theyʼre not fazed by the fact that they might be breaking the boy-band mould. There is a genuine bond with these five lads, each with their own taste in music, fashion and women, insuring there is never a dull moment in the Kingsland house. Formed in November last year by college mates Connor and Josh, Kingsland Road have racked up 100,000 You Tube followers and 11k followers on Twitter. They have just come back from supporting FutureProof on their 02 Academy Tour of the UK and picked up the @LatestPop award for the Best New Artist 2013. Their mix of five piece harmony, ska infused summer pop, infectious banter and unashamed individualism make Kingsland the lads everyone wants at the party.

Dan Bartlett, Andy Burge and Callum Walton, together form ʻThe Paradesʼ. After forming in 2012 under the name of ʻWe Struck Luckyʼ, the band started to write and record their own material together which led to the creation of their pop funk soul sound. They went onto work with Red Triangle Productions towards the end of the year to produce a three track E.P. In February 2013, the boys worked alongside the clothes company... ʻJack Willsʼ to put on acoustic performances at stores all over the country. The band was then renamed ʻThe Paradesʼ followed by an extremely busy summer of live shows. They began to play all over the UK at various events and festivals including ʻIsle of Wight Festivalʼ, ʻDoncaster racecourseʼ and many colleges in and around London. The band are currently working on new material and have big aspirations for 2014.

Dominic Kirwan

Dominic Kirwan

From playing the pubs and clubs of Omagh and Northern Ireland to the cream of the UK's concert Halls and Theatres its a magical journey for  Irish singer and entertainer  Mr Dominic Kirwan.

Impossible to pigeon hole, Dominic, from the County Tyrone town, has been entertaining professionally since 1989. He has been described as the ultimate entertainer, at ease with songs such as “Like Father Like Son” to “Noreen Bawn” from “Absent Friends” to “Some Girls”. The show is an eclectic mix of songs that just sit begging to be sung in Kirwan’s own style.

Twenty five years on and Kirwan’s stage presence still lights up the room, ignites and engages the audience and holds them in the palm of his hand. A vibrant mix of classic country, a hint of rock and roll, a sprinkling of a ballad, a touch of a standard with just a spot of an inspirational classic and you have the ‘Dominic Kirwan Show’ and in 2014 what a show it is.

This silver anniversary show will be a night of nostalgia as genial Mr Kirwan rolls back the years, belting out many of the songs that has made him a household name. It will be a night to celebrate, savour and enjoy Dominic at his very best.

Relive the magical moments of one of Ireland's finest entertainers. In his own inimitable style Dominic will be joined by some very special guests in a show worthy of a visit for fans, for newcomers to the Omagh mans vocal talent and for music lovers alike. This is a show not to be missed It will be a massive year for Dominic.

Speaking ahead of this UK tour Dominic reflected on his 25 years, "it's hard to believe it's been 25 years, so many songs, so many tours, so many miles but it certainly has been rewarding, its been an incredible journey, one I could certainly not have done without the fans. I have been blessed to have had such a loyal following through the years and I really hope I will meet a lot of them over this special year”

The Swing Commanders

The Swing Commanders


The Swing Commanders take well crafted songs from the thirties to the fifties, from American Songbook classics to Western Swing and Novelty songs, and overlay them with lush vocal harmonies and hot solos. The rhythms, varying from ballads to jive to quicksteps, are great for dances, theatre shows, and parties.


The Swing Commanders have appeared, often headlining, at most of the UK’s top Vintage and Country Music festivals. They are loved by fans of Jazz, Country, Swing and Blues, and find it easy to fill dancehalls with lindy hoppers, modern jivers, line, partner and social dancers. They play all over the UK, regularly tour Europe and when they can, cross the pond to visit the US!


The band members have a wealth of musical experience, from bar room to classical concert hall, as well as an understanding of dance and theatre. This results in a stage show that is technically precise and wildly entertaining. Everyone involved loves performing the music, and this shines through.


People who experience the band for the first time are amazed at the energetic showmanship, the instrument swapping, the intricate arrangements, and sophisticated vocal blend. This isn’t a nostalgia trip or Rat Pack karaoke. It is fine songs played joyfully and brilliantly.
