“If you can’t afford my tickets, go see these guys... they’re just as good and half the price!” - Rod Stewart Following their sell-out show in 2016, Cregan & Co are back by popular demand! The Faces broke up in 1975 and Rod Stewart started his own band. One of the most influential guitarists in this line-up was Jim Cregan. Now, more than 40 years on, Jim, together with four outstanding musicians, performs that well-loved heritage music under the name 'Cregan & Co'. Fronting the show is X Factor finalist Ben Mills. He is joined, along with Jim Cregan, by three other multi-talented musicians who have played with the likes of Art Garfunkel, Frank Zappa, Etta James, The Who, Jeff Beck, Katie Melua and The Faces. Jim co-wrote the hits, recorded the albums, and toured the world with Rod – writing and performing You’re in My Heart, I Was Only Joking, Baby Jane, Blondes Have More Fun, Forever Young, D’Ya Think I’m Sexy and many more No1 hits. Now he is taking to the road to present the very best of Rod Stewart – the songs that formed the soundtrack to our lives for more than 30 years. And just like the man himself, this show will most definitely keep you….Forever Young! Tickets: £24, Concessions £22

Karen was the voice of the multi-hit making group The Carpenters who along with her brother Richard, scored an unprecedented 17 consecutive billboard US top ten hits. The timeless quality of the Carpenters music makes it as relevant today as when they scored their first UK hit with Close to you in 1970. Karen Carpenter had a unique voice, so unique in fact that it has proven almost impossible to duplicate its deep smoky emotional edge, creating that uniqueness that is so hard to perfect. Now for the very first time in over 30 years the voice that melted a thousand romantic hearts lives again through Toni Lee, in this 2-hour touring concert show “We’ve Only Just Begun, the Carpenters Greatest Love Songs”. “We’ve Only Just Begun” is a celebration of the Carpenter’s music and the spirit of Karen Carpenter. Every song in the show is a chart hit, brilliantly performed by vocalist Toni Lee, with her Big Band and singers. This high quality production includes an audio visual presentation. So close your eyes and re-live the magic of one of the greatest female voices in pop music history as Toni Lee becomes Karen Carpenter and sings over 22 hits including Close to You, We’ve Only Just Begun, Superstar, For All we Know, Yesterday Once More, Top of the World, Jambalaya, Please Mr Postman, Only Yesterday, Solitaire, A Kind of Hush, Sweet Sweet Smile and more. Tickets: £25, Concessions £23
