Bittersweet, poignant and laugh out loud funny, Borderline is a comedic love letter to the future of our islands from this award-winning comedian’s personal past.
Borderline sees Patrick Kielty return to his satirical roots with a personal take on borders, national identity and the future of the Union in a post Brexit landscape.
As a Northern Ireland native, who grew up close to the Irish border, this new one man stand up show delves into his homeland’s recent history to try to make sense of what Brexit’s new borders and political upheaval means for our shared identities.

“a consummate provider of finely-engineered stand-up” - Chortle
An evening of poems, drawings, stories and possibly dancing. Included in the spectacle are a pair of
Dromedaries, alongside a number of newly composed pieces touching on John Keats's letters and leisure
activities. The singing camel (not to be confused with a dromedary) which the poet imagined in a letter to Jane
and Mariane Renolds makes an appearance, although which song it sings is yet to be decided.
Other animals include Monsieur Robinet’s faithful canine companion, Chirac; 19th Century American geologist
Florence Bascomb’s dog; as well as D. H. Lawrence's tortoise, puffins, cats, frogs, elephants and half a dragon.
Expect a combination of new pieces and species, and a batch selected from an extensive back catalogue.
Includes some plant-based material and rhyming language. A performance devised to suit adults, but of interest
to some nine-year-olds.
‘[an] exquisitely curated package that is unmistakably Hegley’ (Chortle)
‘Awesomely mundane’ (Independent).

RHOD GILBERT: The Book of John
Rhod was in the middle of a massive tour when COVID 19 brought curtains down in theatres everywhere, but now he's back on the road and adding a load more extra dates due to phenomenal demand.
This show sees Rhod as funny as ever, but like never before. It’s a little bit raw, very personal, and brutally honest; no more lies, no more nonsense. This is Rhod, but different, the same, but not. It’s a show about hitting rock bottom, and just when you think things can’t get any worse, you meet a bloke…a bloke called John.
As seen on 'Rhod Gilbert’s Work Experience', ‘Rhod Gilbert’s Growing Pains’ ‘Would I Lie to You?’, 'Taskmaster’, ‘Qi’, 'Live at The Apollo', 'Have I Got News for You?’, and much more…

Described as 'a truly gifted stand up' by The Sunday Times, join Joanne as she revisits her
irreverent and critically acclaimed show The Prosecco Express.
Due to a relentless ageing process, Joanne is suddenly in her late thirties with no husband,
no kids, no pension and no plan. She is full of questions: if she doesn’t birth anything, who will
be obligated to watch her die so she doesn’t have to do it alone? Can she start a GoFundMe
page to get a golden tomb built for single people to get buried in together, or do we all just get
thrown into a mass grave and covered in cat hair? When a man on a dating app identifies as
'spiritual', is it safe to assume he has the personality of a spoon? If you do all your drinking in
the bath, can you write it off as self-care? 'Dark, hilarious, strangely reassuring' [The
Independent], Joanne is on a mission to solve absolutely nothing.

A new guide to science, art, sex and death from the New York Times bestselling
author of Love Wins
In Everything is Spiritual, the author Rob Bell explores how ideas about creation, love and connection
shaped him and how they shape every one of us. Bell observes that more than anything, people want to
understand their purpose here on earth. And when you embrace who and where you come from, including
your wounds, your pains and your regrets, you will discover that lurking there in the mess of life is an
invitation to expand - just as the universe has been expanding for 13 billion years.
Written in a lyrical, almost stream of consciousness style this wide-ranging book shares stories from Bell's
life to illuminate lessons about the world around you to help you find purpose, meaning and connection.
'Rob Bell might have left the church, but he will always be my minister - in the purest and most uncorrupted
sense of that word. Nobody else can take ancient teachings and modern science, and blend them together
into wisdom that makes sense to me, and heals me. Rob's unorthodox and bold thinking stirs my
intellect, comforts my heart and makes me believe that - within all the frightening chaos of the unknowable
universe - I still have a sacred place. His work is a sacred gift to a troubled world.’
Elizabeth Gilbert, New York Times bestselling author of Big Magic
Rob Bell is the New York Times bestselling author of ten books, including Velvet Elvis, Drops Like
Stars and Love Wins, which have been translated into 25 languages. His podcast, called RobCast, was in the

Stacey Dooley has firmly established herself as one of the most recognisable faces on British TV. Alongside her hugely popular BBC investigative series, in which she covered a diverse range of topics from across the world, the documentary maker and author of the Sunday Times bestseller, On the Frontline with the Women Who Fight Back, is also the presenter of BBC1's This Is My House; BBC2’s DNA; Glow Up for BBC3, and W's Stacey Dooley Sleeps Over – and lest we forget, our 2018 Strictly champion.
Following several sell-out UK tours, Stacey is heading back on the road to celebrate the publication of her new book, which explores the mental health crisis in Britain and its particular impact on young people, inspired by Stacey’s two most recent documentaries on mental health.
In conversation for these limited events, Stacey will open up the conversation about mental health in young people, to challenge the stigma and stereotypes around it. Having worked in collaboration with mental health experts and charities, Stacey will responsibly share the stories of young people in the UK directly affected by mental health issues, in order to shine a light on life on the mental health frontline and give a voice to young people throughout the UK who are living with mental health conditions across the spectrum.
Stacey will also touch on related, broader topics which she has tackled in her documentaries – poverty, addiction, identity, the pressures of social media – and look back on the stand-out moments and interactions from her wide-reaching career.
Join her for what promises to be a thought-provoking, inspiring and informative evening. With a chance to try your own hand at journalism and ask Stacey the questions, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
Presented by Fane.
Dara Ó Briain is back on tour, with a brand new show!
At the end of his last tour, Dara had performed the show "Voice Of Reason" 180 times, over 2 years across 20 countries, from Auckland to Reykjavik, from Moscow to New York; and by March 2020 he was ready for a break!
He would now like to apologise for saying that and will never wish for anything like that again.
Yes, he's back on tour, and he will never stop again, because that's clearly what caused all this trouble. Instead, in his new show 'So, Where Were We?" Dara will hardly mention the last year and a half, because, Jesus, who wants to hear about that? Instead, Dara will fire out the usual mix of stories, one-liners, audience messing and tripping over his words by talking too quickly because he's so giddy to be back in front of a crowd.
