Ardal O’Hanlon, star of Death in Paradise ,Father Ted, and My Hero (BBC), previews his new show 'The showing off must go on' ahead of his tour.
In an age of raging populism, MeToo, identity politics, the end of truth, the collapsing middle ground, peak avocado and £15 Gin and Tonics, and terrified of being on the wrong side of history, and desperate to prove that his gender, race, age and class don’t necessarily define him, Ardal is forced to saddle his high horse again and ride fearlessly into the culture wars (with a white hankie in his pocket just in case), comedy as ever being the best emergency response mechanism to extreme events there is.

Hyde Park Brass Band - POSTPONED - NEW DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY
Hyde Park Brass was born in 2015 as the product of a one-off performance at the University of Leeds. The boys immediately decided there was more to the band than just one gig, and that’s where the journey began. Building their name around their home city of Leeds, Hyde Park Brass began to curate and develop a rep combining a range of varied musical inspirations. This culminated in the production of their eponymous debut album in 2018, and since then the boys have expanded nationwide, bringing their unmistakeable party style to audiences across the UK and beyond.
Tickets are £8 and are available online, The Old Town hall and OFS direct.
