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.

The Coral: 20 Years On

City Varieties Music Hall
The Coral paper photo collage of their career

The Coral is celebrating the 20th anniversary of their eponymous debut album. The record was described by NME as being the funniest and most refreshing British debut in years. In this intimate evening, singer and songwriter James Skelly will be joined by keyboardist Nick Power for an evening of conversation, audience questions and acoustic songs. The Coral’s eponymous debut album remains a totemic release. Sonically unique, wilfully leftfield and thrillingly eclectic, The Coral combined psychedelia with dub, disco groove with pop and ragtime with Egyptian reggae on a remarkable debut that has proved to be timeless. Twenty years on, that records sounds as fresh and remarkable as it did when it was released on 29 July 2002.

An exclusive CD featuring acoustic songs played on this tour will be available to ticket-buyers after the show at a cost of £5, via post. Details of how to claim will be available at the show.
