Acts (click the act for more info)

Martin Soan

Martin Soan is a true legend of alternative comedy.
His performance is fast paced and he uses everyday objects (as well as some  outrageous props) to illustrate his has a unique comedy twist on life. Martin is a founder member of “The Greatest Show on Legs” and the highly acclaimed comedy night ' Pull the other one'. We offer you a rare chance to catch him in the North of England.

Desmond O'Connor

Desmond’s songs are a highlight of any show he graces with his louche, twinkling-eyed presence. Though not really appropriate for the under 12s, his lyrics are hilariously clever; and he never plays to backing tracks, accompanying himself on that Great British cabaret stalwart, the ukulele. Demonising, hypnotising, mesmerising -Desmond O’Connor is an internationally renowned, award winning writer, producer and performer with over twenty years experience in cabaret, musical comedy and musical theatre. His bittersweet lyrics and insanely catchy melodies never fail to shock, charm and entertain.

Goronwy Thom

Goronwy has performed professionally for 28 years, in front of audiences of varied sizes across the world. He first appeared at the age of 4, in The Dolls House at The Crucible Theatre, Sheffield . He then retired from serious drama and decided to try to make people laugh instead and has done this in some form ever since!

On the way he has been seen at thousands of venues including at The Royal National Theatre, on BBC Television and Radio, on ITV, on Channel 4, in The Moscow State Circus, at Glastonbury Festival, Edinburgh Festival, with English Touring Opera and has toured major UK theatres with the company he produces - Slightly Fat Features – a hugely successful comedy variety troupe.

Goronwy learnt to juggle in the Ruskin Hall so it is always with great pleasure that we invite him back to his former nursery venue. The Last time he came Headlined!!
