1 – New Comedy from Johnny Vegas

Skint after the races? Plan a fab Friday night in as Johnny Vegas stars in his brand new BBC 1 comedy, ‘Home From Home’. Johnny plays motorway service station worker, Neil who clashes with the snobby Emilia Fox at their holiday homes.

Our theatres are booming this Spring with Shakespeare at the Epstein, A Clockwork Orange at Everyman, an Agatha Christie classic at the Playhouse and Hairspray at the Empire.

The long-awaited, brand new addition to The Georgian Quarter, The Florist opens on 23rd April and it’s like nothing we’ve seen before. Prepare to snap every inch of the brand new restaurant and its vibrant menu. More info here.
