Jason Manford – Like Me @ Charter Hall
Mar 11 @ 7:30 pm
Jason Manford - Like Me @ Charter Hall | England | United Kingdom

He’s back!  It’s been a busy few years for Jason since his last smash-hit stand up show but fans of his Absolute Radio show will know this nationally acclaimed comedian hasn’t changed a bit.  ‘Like Me’ is Jason’s latest comic offering set to hit road, and is sure to be ‘expert observational comedy’ (The Guardian) mixed with ‘comic gold’ (Mail on Sunday).

Jason said:  “After the fun we had on my last tour ‘Muddle Class’, I’m excited to get back on the road with my new stand up show, ‘Like Me’.  In these trying times it’s always important to be able to get away for a couple of hours and exercise the old chuckle muscle!  So I’m coming to a venue near you in 2021 so we can have a good laugh together.  See you then.”

 ‘First & Last’ (BBC One), ‘The Masked Singer’ (ITV1), ‘What Would Your Kid Do?’ (ITV1), ‘Olivier Awards’ (ITV1), ‘Scarborough’ (BBC One), ‘8 out of 10 Cats’ (Channel 4), ‘The Nightly Show’ (ITV1), ‘Sunday Night at the Palladium’ (ITV1), ‘Live at the Apollo’ (BBC One), ‘Have I Got News For You’, (BBC One), QI (BBC Two) and ‘The Royal Variety Performance’ (ITV1) have all helped establish Jason as a nationally known comic.

“Effortlessly entertaining” ****
Evening Standard    

 “He’s blessed with the sort of laid-back charm and sharp turn of phrase you can’t manufacture” ****
Daily Telegraph

 The Sunday Times
“Engaging and Witty”

The Times
“Manford, in short, is a total pro.”

The Guardian
“Manford successfully straddles the line between contemporary stand-up and old-school mainstream entertainment.”

Manchester Evening News
“…you’ll doubtless love this show”

10CC – All the hits and more – NEW DATE! @ Charter Hall

10CC - All the hits and more - NEW DATE! @ Charter Hall

Due to Covid-19 and following the Government guidelines, this event was due in 2020, will now be taking place in 2021.

Many Thanks for your patience and we look forward to seeing you in 2021

 

The legendary 10cc have announced a mammoth 25-date UK tour for Autumn 2020, performing the hits which have singled them out as one of the most inventive and influential bands in the history of popular music.

Marking the 45th anniversary of the release of their mega-hit I’m Not In Love, which landed the band a top 5 single in 10 countries and spawned a No 1 album in the US, the 2020 tour starts at the Carlisle Sands Centre on Thursday 8th October.

Led by co-founder Graham Gouldman, the art-pop band are heralded in equal measure for their ability to craft ingenious songs that also resonated commercially, with eleven top 10 hits, and over 15 million albums sold in the UK alone. The group also have three No 1 singles to their name – Rubber Bullets, Dreadlock Holiday and I’m Not In Love.

The line-up features Gouldman (bass, guitar, vocals), Rick Fenn (lead guitar, bass, vocals), Paul Burgess (drums, percussion) – both of whom have been with the band since the mid-’70s – Keith Hayman (keyboards, guitars, bass, vocals) and Paul Canning (vocals, percussion, guitar, keyboards).

Since the most recent live version of the band has been established, 10cc have toured worldwide, including Australia, Japan, Iceland, New Zealand, across the UK and Europe. They’ve performed at the British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park, and sold out London’s 5200 seat Royal Albert Hall in advance last year.

It has been an eventful few years for Graham Gouldman. Not only is 10cc enjoying increasing success around the world, but recognition of his solo achievements has grown too.

Being invited by Ringo Starr to join his All Starr Band for tours of Europe in June 2018 and the USA that September, during which the band played three 10cc songs, elevated his profile yet further.

2020 is set to be another sell out year as the band take their inspirational live show back on the road, performing their timeless hits and more, and always with a surprise or two.
