A new play by Tom Stoppard
Directed by Patrick Marber
Tom Stoppard’s Olivier Award-winning new play Leopoldstadt is a passionate drama of love, family and endurance.
At the beginning of the 20th century, Leopoldstadt was the old, crowded Jewish quarter of Vienna, Austria. But Hermann Merz, a factory owner and baptised Jew now married to Catholic Gretl, has moved up in the world.
We follow his family’s story across half a century, passing through the convulsions of war, revolution, impoverishment, annexation by Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. A company of 40 actors represent each generation of the family in this epic, but intimate play.
Filmed live on stage in London’s West End, ‘Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece is magnificent’ (Independent) and should not be missed.
Directed by BAFTA Winner Will Sharpe. Story by Simon Stephenson. Screenplay by Simon Stephenson and Will Sharpe.
THE ELECTRICAL LIFE OF LOUIS WAIN is the extraordinary true story of eccentric British artist Louis Wain, portrayed by Academy Award® Nominee and BAFTA-winning Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange, The Imitation Game) whose playful, sometimes even psychedelic pictures helped to transform the public's perception of cats forever.
Moving from the late 1800s through to the 1930s, we follow the incredible adventures of this inspiring, unsung hero, as he seeks to unlock the "electrical" mysteries of the world and, in so doing, to better understand his own life and the profound love he shared with his wife Emily Richardson, played by Emmy® Winner and BAFTA Nominee Claire Foy (The Crown, First Man).
Both leads are supported by a brilliant ensemble including Academy Award® winner Olivia Colman (The Father), BAFTA Nominee Andrea Riseborough (The Death of Stalin), BAFTA Nominee Hayley Squires (I, Daniel Blake), Toby Jones (Dad’s Army) and cameos from Taika Waititi (The Suicide Squad), Richard Ayoade (The Souvenir) and Nick Cave.

On a glorious Greek evening, screen legend Bill Murray and world renowned cellist Jan Vogler rock the Acropolis with a timeless mix of music, literature and poetry. Captured on film by director Andrew Muscato, Murray and Vogler are joined by the dazzling Mira Wang (violin) and dynamic Vanessa Perez (piano). The international quartet enchants the Athenian audience from the 2,000 year old stage of the Odeon of Herodes Atticus with musical reflections on love, hope and heartbreak. Spanning from Bach to Van Morrison, Whitman to West Side Story, the wildly entertaining, humorous and deeply touching program is infused with the one-of-a-kind charm of Bill Murray. The ‘New Worlds’ project emerged from a chance encounter between Murray and Vogler, who met on a flight from Berlin to New York in 2013, with Murray amused that Vogler’s cello was taking up the window seat. The pair forged a strong friendship founded upon a deep curiosity for each other’s artistic worlds. This project highlights some of the strongest voices that influenced generations of Americans and gave the world a picture of the charm, energy and creative force of the ‘New World’. The ancient Acropolis is the perfect setting for this night of artistic exploration blending classical music, literature, and quintessential standards – all tied together with the wit, humour, and deadpan sincerity that Golden Globe and BAFTA award-winner Murray is known for.

We return with Legally Blonde, a show we performed to great acclaim in 2017.
Sassy, fashionable socialite Elle Woods is shocked to her core when, instead of proposing to her, as eagerly anticipated, her boyfriend, Warner Huntington III informs her that she is not serious enough to be part of his life plan: he is heading for Harvard Law School, and expects to become a senator by the age of thirty, and she just does not fit!
Encouraged by her college friends, who pop up from time to time like a frilly and hilarious Greek chorus, Elle decides to challenge him, and in so doing, discovers that there is a lot more to life, and to herself, than she realised.
This show is full of energy, lively song and dance routines as well as both funny and touching moments.
Come join us, don't miss this fun packed, sugar rush of a show!

by Philip Pullman, adapted by Bryony Lavery
directed by Nicholas Hytner
Set twelve years before the epic His Dark Materials trilogy, this gripping adaptation revisits Philip Pullman’s fantastical world in which waters are rising and storms are brewing.
Two young people and their dæmons, with everything at stake, find themselves at the centre of a terrifying manhunt. In their care is a tiny child called Lyra Belacqua, and in that child lies the fate of the future. And as the waters rise around them, powerful adversaries conspire for mastery of Dust: salvation to some, the source of infinite corruption to others.
Eighteen years after his ground breaking production of His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, director Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman’s parallel universe. Broadcast live from London’s Bridge Theatre.

Simon Evans’ last show, Genius 2.0 (***** “A Masterclass” The Scotsman) provided an hilarious analysis of the departure of any visible sign of intelligence from modern life.

The Forum are pleased to announce that we have Stereosonics performing here!
The band mastered the large catalogue of Stereophonics songs and began to perform live on a regular basis. Even playing a fantastic gig at the Working Man’s Club in Cwmaman, Wales; where the Stereophonics played their first ever live show, due to it being Kelly, Richard and Stuart’s home town! The band had the great pleasure of being joined onstage by Stuart Cable Stereophonics former drummer – which is a personal highlight for all band members.
Stereosonics received many compliments that evening regarding their performance, even being told that Shane sounds like Kelly by Mrs Jones (Kelly’s mother, Beryl) herself! They continued to perform over the years and became renowned for providing great entertainment that could not be rivalled unless you had an audience with the band themselves.
Due to family commitments and a member of the group emigrating they took a year off from the performing scene, although they continued to rehearse and hone their performance as close to the originals as possible.
Now, they're back with a vengeance and ready to rock the tribute music scene once again.
As the band restarted with new members, it felt that a new beginning and a new name was necessary. Formally known as the Replicaphonics, the band re-emerged as the Stereosonics.
Stereosonics are proving to be more successful than ever and continue to tour the length and breadth of the UK going from strength to strength.

The UK’s Number One Status Quo Tribute Show!
“An excellent show, really capturing the essence of the Quo I played with for 13 odd years – the attention to detail is awesome!” MATT LETLEY - Status Quo drummer 2000-2013
'Rockin’ All Over The World' - 'Whatever You Want' – 'Down Down' – 'Living On An Island' – 'In The Army Now' - 'What You’re Proposing' – 'Burning Bridges'… just a few of the many hits spreading five decades of Status Quo’s incredible music history.
‘The Quo Experience' is an East Anglian based band including David Wood as ‘Francis Rossi’ and Dave Crawte as ‘Rick Parfitt’; both have spent years studying every detail of Rossi and Parfitt's looks, playing styles and stage performances to make sure they are both as close to the real thing on stage as is possible, without actually being the legendary rock duo themselves! The magic and chemistry that the Parfitt/Rossi partnership brought to a Quo 'live' performance is now being continued within The Quo Experience.
However, The Quo Experience is not all about Rick and Francis; it also features Graham Partridge, who captures the magic of Status Quo’s long-term keyboard player Andy Bown's playing and vocals perfectly; plus Ian ‘Jaspa’ Woodthorpe on drums and Del Fletcher on bass, who together help create the Status Quo ‘live’ sound every fan expects to hear!
With such an impressive line-up of seriously experienced musicians and passionate Quo fans, along with a stage show that includes the legendary Status Quo wall of white Marshalls and replica guitars, The Quo Experience is fully armed to take the act as far as is possibly achievable in the tribute band industry. The Quo Experience is, however, not just another Quo tribute band - it is an 'experience'; an ongoing chance to 'experience' the sounds and looks of "Britain's biggest singles chart band of all time" as we all remember it!
The Quo Experience feel proud and privileged to have had the legendary Status Quo drummer Matt Letley play many full shows with the band during 2017 and 2018. This goes to show the Quo Experience are not just another Status Quo tribute band but an act worth seeing by any Quo fan along with others who may not have seen the real Status Quo ‘live’.
The Quo Experience now feel honoured to be represented by Rick Parfitt’s widow Lyndsay Parfitt at ‘Lyndsay Parfitt Promotions’!
“I feel very proud to be working with the UK’s number one Status Quo tribute act ‘The Quo Experience’ to help keep my late husband’s name and music alive. This is a tribute act that does everything right... the show, the sound and the mannerisms... a band well worth seeing and a fitting tribute to Rick and Status Quo” – Lyndsay Parfitt

You’ve never seen me like this before. You’ve never been this close. I’m inviting you to spend an intimate evening with me – think of it as coming back to my place for a night of stories and songs. Pellow Talk is a chance to learn all about me, not just as a singer and songwriter with Wet Wet Wet, but as a boy and a man. It’s a chance to understand the DNA of the hits that we’ve listened to and loved over the years. The evening will be wrapped in music, from songs you know to ones you’ll get to know. There’ll be laughter as we travel from the banks of the River Clyde to the top of the charts, then onto Broadway and beyond. There’ll be no mask and no character. This is me, Marti, stepping out of the shadows, speaking directly to you. The invitation is there. I hope you come and spend some time with me. Enough living has been done for a life to unfold. Enough years have passed for a story to be told.

Milton Jones in Milton: Impossible
One man. One Mission. Is it possible? No, not really.
Him with the shirts from Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo and Radio 4.
‘No-one can touch Jones when he hits his stride’ The Guardian
One man. One Mission. Is it possible? No, not really.
Milton reveals the truth about being an international spy, before being given a disappointing new identity which forced him to appear on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo.
But this is also a love story with the twist, or even a really bad sprain.
Just gloriously daft nonsense or is there a deeper meaning? Every man has his price. Sainsburys, where good food costs less.
“He’s fast, absurd and very Funny” Radio Times
