Pasadena Roof Orchestra

SINCE 1969 the Pasadena Roof Orchestra has been faithfully re-creating the glories of popular music from the 1920’s and 1930’s.

The fun-packed show features timeless classics from the great American songbook – those wonderful songs that miraculously lifted people’s spirits during the depression era, and which made household names of singers such as Bing Crosby, Al Bowlly, and Fred Astaire.

The musicians master the arrangements and sound of the fabled American orchestras such as Duke Ellington and Fletcher Henderson, whilst also paying tribute to the great British dance Bands like Ray Noble or Ambrose. Presenting the show, and putting on the top hat white tie and tails, is the suave singer and band leader Duncan Galloway.

Tickets cost £18 Standard and £16 student.

The Six Wives of Henry VIII

TWO Actors. Too Many Characters. One Big Ego.

Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII.

There’s no escaping that. Stu McLoughlin doesn’t really look like any of the wives, but he’s going to give it a go.

After their previous self-funded two-man historical drama is savaged in the press, Howard (Bristol Old Vic) and Stu (Kneehigh) are at their wits end.

Then they hit upon an idea for a show that could change everything… But can two of the South West’s favourite theatrical sons put aside their differences and make it through to the end without killing each other?

The Six Wives of Henry VIII promises to be an ill-researched lesson in crossdressing Tudor history that you’ll never forget.

Tickets cost standard, £13 and student £10.

Buy online at or call the box office on 01823 283244.
