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.

Matt Chorley: Who Is In Charge Here?

Presented by Phil McIntyre Live
£24.10

Matt Chorley has spent the past 15 years in Westminster seeing up close how politics works, or doesn’t. After the sell-out success of his first tour This Is Not Normal, the award-winning Times columnist and Times Radio presenter is back with an hilarious new show exploring who really calls the shots. Is the Prime Minister actually in charge, or at the mercy of the opposition, backbenchers, lobbyists, the media, spin doctors, his wife, or the Queen?

‘Great British stand-up is alive and well… Matt Chorley with acid wit and music hall timing’
Andrew Marr

★★★★
‘No politician is spared in this delightful display of disdain’
Times

‘Engaging, funny, entertaining’
Rory Bremner
