We are delighted that award winning comedian, comedy writer and director Andy Hamilton will be performing his FIRST EVER up close and personal show An Evening With Andy Hamilton.

Andy will look back at his very extensive professional career in comedy, with TV classics such as Outnumbered and Drop the Dead Donkey and his BBC Radio4 series Old Harry's Game, not to mention appearing as a panellist on TV and radio - The News Quiz, I'm Sorry I Haven't A Clue, Have I Got New For You, and QI.

Audiences will be treated to a funny and revealing night out with a master of comedy.

Fresh from performing 7 shows only at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Rory Bremner and Jan Ravens will be touring their 'Special Relationship' to make sense (and nonsense) of a world where Boris Johnson is Foreign Secretary, Donald Trump is US President, and Brexit means Brexit. A unique mix of impressions and satire from the stars of Bremner, Bird and Fortune and Dead Ringers.

For 5 nights only at Leicester Square Theatre, internationally renowned writer, broadcaster, and journalist Jon Ronson will recount a brand new adventure, based in part on his new podcast The Butterfly Effect

Owen Jones is one of the most popular and in demand public speakers in Britain today.  The acclaimed author, journalist, broadcaster and campaigner will be touring How To Build A New Britain, asking: how do we build a new Britain and a new world free of the injustice that currently defines it?

Robin Ince is back on the road with his latest show Chaos of Delight, mashing up the two cultures of art and science in this celebration of the human mind from Bohemians to Black Holes, Dali to DNA.

Following her sell out shows Sane New World and Frazzled, Ruby Wax returns to teach us How To Be Human, with a little help from monk Gelong Thubten and neuroscientist Ash Ranpura, this is the show to help you upgrade your mind as much as you've upgraded your iPhone!

And in celebration of 70 Years of the NHS 1948-2018, we have 2 very different shows on offer:

Dr Phil Hammond has worked in the NHS for 31 years and loves it so much he still does! In Happy Birthday NHS? he looks back to the start of the NHS and forward to the future, to celebrate the NHS and laugh all your worries away.

Based on a series of interviews with leading experts in and on the NHS and residencies in hospitals and surgeries, Mark Thomas uses his own demise to explore the state we're in. Check Up: Our NHS @ 70 - what's going right, what's going wrong, and how does it get better?
