It is with a heavy heart that we have learned of the passing of our good friend Kay Mellor. Leeds born and bred, Kay was a pioneer of northern drama and real-life stories, going where no other female writer, director, or actor had gone before. We’re deeply proud and humbled to have been chosen as the home venue for her two stage premieres, Fat Friends The Musical (2017) and Band of Gold (2019) – both of which were huge success stories, as was everything that Kay turned her hand to. The hearts and thoughts of our theatre family are with her family, who we are also blessed to call friends of our theatres.

Count Arthur Strong: And This Is Me!

£23.10
City Varieties Music Hall
Count Arthur Strong

A twentieth anniversary tour!

After many years of giving his wonderful lecture talks, Count Arthur Strong has at last bowed to substantial public demand and allowed himself be talked into making the show about himself for once. And that had never occurred to him before because of him being highly magnanimous.

From his breakthrough Edinburgh Fringe show Forgotten Egypt in 2002, to talking about himself in 2022. Arthur has two decades of memories from his 10 national tours, 15 years of his multi-award winning radio show and three series of his BAFTA nominated TV sitcom.

‘Pure genius and pure tribute to the golden age of vaudeville’
Bruce Dessau, Evening Standard

‘At every turn, his performance gives us something to marvel at’
Brian Logan, Guardian
