Jason Manford – Muddle Class @ Aylesbury Waterside Theatre
Nov 8 @ 7:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Jason Manford - Muddle Class @ Aylesbury Waterside Theatre | England | United Kingdom

He’s back! It’s been a busy few years for Jason Manford 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. Muddle Class promises to feature a wealth of new material about Jason growing up ‘working class’ then finding, over the years, that part of him has become ‘middle class’ – causing much confusion! Delivered with Jason’s amiable charm and captivating wit, this is a show not to be missed.

Jason said: “Somebody said to me on my Facebook fan page, ‘it’s been ages since you’ve toured’. I thought ‘no way, it was last year wasn’t it? Anyway, long story short, they were right, it was years ago! I just got fooled cos I’ve been on tour doing musicals and the last tour is repeated on Dave ja Vu 13 times a day! So I’ve been putting some stuff together, looking at my life and how it’s changed over the years, how the world has changed and how my parents haven’t changed a bit! It’s going to be a great tour and I can’t wait to see you there.”

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.

Dust off your armour and saddle the horses – Queens Park Arts Centre’s traditional family pantomime is off on an epic Arthurian adventure…

Dark forces are stirring in the kingdom of Albion. The wicked Morgana La Fey is out to steal the throne from noble King Arthur, who is warned by a prophecy that there’s a traitor in the court of Camelot.

Will King Arthur find the conspirator before it’s too late? Will Morgana’s quest for power succeed? And what will it take for Arthur’s daughter Anwyn to prove she’s a worthy Knight of the Round Table?

There’s only one way to find out…

Featuring memorable songs, riotous slapstick routines, plenty of audience participation and magical sets, costumes, puppets and props created by the artists and makers of Queens Park Arts Centre, this year’s panto is set to be bigger than ever.

The show is produced by Queens Park’s in-house production company Unbound, and once again features the talented students of the Susan Diane School of Dance

Various performance times available, including matinees. Visit our website – www.qpc.org – for more information. Show Run-time (incl. interval): 2hrs 10mins
