Along with his incredible live band and dancers, Navi is currently taking theatres and arenas across the globe by storm with his thrilling new show that will take you closer than you ever imagined to an original Jackson concert.

DON’T TELL HIM, PIKE !
Ian Lavender & Chris Serle
Whenever Arthur Lowe’s Capt George Mainwaring found Private Pike wanting there was only ever one retort – “Stupid boy!” he would have cried.
But in the new Dad’s Army film original actor Ian Lavender gets to play a Brigadier, and so finally gets to turn the tables on his former Home Guard commander in Walmington-on-Sea.
Dad’s Army was one of the top TV comedy shows of all time, delighting audiences of 18 million plus between 1968 and 1977. The exploits of the hapless Capt. Mainwaring and his inept Home Guard platoon are still being shown to this day on TV all over the world and this year has seen the release of the new Dad’s Army feature film. Interest has seldom been higher.
Ian Lavender starred in the original Dad’s Army as Private Pike, the teenager whose mum made him wear a scarf “to protect him from the croup”.. He shares with the writer and broadcaster Chris Serle a generous helping of his brilliantly funny anecdotes about the making of the series, at rehearsals, in the studio and on location with his fellow volunteer soldiers.
The Elvis Years
Saturday 25th June, 2016 @ 7:30pm
£21 no concessions
The Elvis Years is an outstanding musical production which brings to the stage the incredible and compelling story of the ‘king of rock and roll’ – Elvis Presley.
With a top line-up of actor-musicians, multiple costume changes and nostalgic film footage, this glittering two-hour production charts the musical and emotional highs and lows of Elvis’ amazing journey from poor truck-driving teenager from Tupelo, Mississippi through the army, Hollywood and finally the legendary Las Vegas concerts.
Directed by top record producer David Mackay (Dusty Springfield, Cliff Richard, Bonnie Tyler, New Seekers), the lead role is perfectly portrayed by Mario Kombou (from West End production Jailhouse Rock), who is officially endorsed by Elvis Presley Enterprises and Elvis’ first cousin Donna Presley.
This feelgood show will instantly transport you back to the golden years of rock’n’roll, as you witness Elvis audition for the very first time at Sun Studios, then become part of the TV audience for the ’68 Comeback Special, and finally dance in the aisles at a Las Vegas concert as Mario recreates with incredible accuracy the charisma, stage presence and humour of the man himself – you may even get your hands on a scarf!
Taking in all the biggest hits including Always On My Mind, (recently voted the UKs all-time favourite Elvis song), That’s Alright Mama, All Shook Up, Blue Suede Shoes, Suspicious Minds, American Trilogy as well as Hollywood favourites Bossa Nova Baby and Viva Las Vegas, you will leave the building on cloud 9!!
