Having set two Guinness World Record titles with his previous sell-out live UK and Ireland tour, Professor Brian Cox, OBE is heading back out on the road with a brand new show for 2019.
Taking audiences to the edge of our current understanding about the origin and evolution of our Solar System and the Universe, Universal: Adventures In Space and Time offers a fascinating insight into the workings of nature at the most fundamental level.
Whether an avid science reader or a total novice, Professor Cox makes challenging ideas accessible to all, exploring the vast, possibly infinite universe and our place within it from earth to the edges of the cosmos. Brian will once again be joined by co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage and award-winning comedian Robin Ince to oversee an audience Q&A, giving fans the chance to ask any questions they have and making every show unique.
Stand-up legend Frank Skinner has made the nation laugh for over 30 years with his hugely acclaimed comedy work.
Plus, he’s fondly remembered for his many collaborations with fellow comic, David Baddiel including Fantasy Football League as well as co-writing the hit football song Three Lions with Lightning Seeds.
In recent years, Frank has become a familiar face on our TV screens presenting Room 101 and hosts his own Saturday show with Alun Cochrane on Absolute Radio. Yet, it is on the stand-up stage where Frank first made his name and where he is most beloved. Way back in 1987, he spent £400 of his last £435 booking a room at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Four years later, he returned to beat Jack Dee and Eddie Izzard to take home the prestigious Perrier Award. Over three decades later, Frank Skinner remains one of the very best in Showbiz!

UK pop icon Will Young returns to Cardiff in support of his seventh studio album Lexicon featuring the stunning single All the Songs.
An upbeat, piano-led, dancefloor-tilted heartbreak anthem with a perfect promo video directed by legendary fashion designer Rankin, All the Songs serves as the perfect introduction to an album built around the joy of pop music.
Will said: “I always say that there's no point in doing it if it's not joyous. That's been my motto – do it the way you want to do it."
After winning the inaugural ITV series of Pop Idol in 2002, Will Young has enjoyed an incredible career with highlights including four No.1 albums, four UK No.1 singles and two BRIT Awards.
Today, multi-platinum, award-winning singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé MBE announces her U.K tour ahead of the release of her much anticipated third album ‘Real Life’ set for worldwide release in September 2019 on Virgin/EMI.
With over 340 million video views, 19 million singles sold including 3 number one UK singles and over 6 million albums, Emeli Sandé has dominated the music industry and captured the heart of the Nation. Her debut album Our Version of Events, released in 2012, was the biggest selling album of that year and the second biggest of 2013. The album also broke the chart record for the most consecutive weeks inside the Top 10, breaking the 50-year record previously held by The Beatles. The singer has won numerous accolades including 4 x Brit Awards (Critics Choice, Best Album and Female Solo twice, most recently in 2017 for her second album, Long Live the Angels) and in 2018 was awarded an MBE for services to Music.
Following his five-star Olivier-nominated hit My Family: Not The Sitcom and the return to number 1 of his seminal football anthem Three Lions, David Baddiel comes back to the stage with a brand new one-man show, Trolls: Not The Dolls.
Trolls – the terrible people who spend all day insulting and abusing strangers for no other reason than to fill the huge gaps in their souls. There is a common wisdom about how to deal with trolls: don’t, for goodness sake, encourage these people by replying to them.
It’s a good law. And it’s one that David Baddiel has consistently broken. Because David has always seen trolls as hecklers, and if a comedian gets heckled, it is their duty not to ignore the heckler, but to wittily put them down. Over the years, David has spent a lot of time doing this, which has led him to think that there might be a show in it: a show that would say something about how we live now.
David has stories to tell, of the dark, terrible and hysterically absurd cyber-paths that interacting with trolls has led him down. Come with him on this comedy journey into our culture’s most dank virtual underground. You will come back safe, more able to deflect your own trolls, and only a little bit soiled.
