Written by Willy Russell, the legendary Blood Brothers returns to The Broadway Theatre.

LYN PAUL returns from her West End run - "THE DEFINITIVE MRS JOHNSTONE" (MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS)
BLOOD BROTHERS tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences.
Few musicals have received quite such acclaim as the multi-award winning BLOOD BROTHERS. Bill Kenwright’s production surpassed 10,000 performances in London’s West End, one of only three musicals ever to achieve that milestone. It has been affectionately christened the ‘Standing Ovation Musical’, as inevitably it “brings the audience cheering to its feet and roaring its approval” (The Daily Mail). And now it returns to The Broadway Theatre, having previously been seen at the venue in 2014 and 2016.
Lyn Paul returns to the iconic role she has played many times in the West End. In fact, she was the show’s final Mrs Johnstone when it closed at The Phoenix Theatre in 2012.
Lyn also starred in Bill Kenwright’s tour of Cabaret with Will Young in 2013 and rose to fame as a member of the pop group The New Seekers whose numerous number one hits include "I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing" which sold over 20 million copies.
The superb score includes "Bright New Day", "Marilyn Monroe" and the emotionally charged hit "Tell Me It’s Not True".
"A TRIUMPHANT EVENING... UNMISSABLE AND UNBEATABLE" (THE SPECTATOR)
"EXHILARATING...ONE OF THE BEST MUSICALS EVER WRITTEN" (SUNDAY TIMES)
"BRINGS THE AUDIENCE CHEERING TO ITS FEET AND ROARING APPROVAL" (THE DAILY MAIL)
***** "DAZZLING" (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)
***** "TERRIFIC" (SUNDAY EXPRESS)

Remarkably compelling, amazingly detailed and always humorous
Tony Stockwell is a popular star of TV’s Street Psychic, Psychic Private Eyes and Psychic Academy
Tony Stockwell has a long-established psychic credibility as one of the top Intuitive Mediums. He has shared a stage all round the world with international mediums such as Colin Fry, James van Praagh and Lisa Williams.
He demonstrates his belief that those who have passed can communicate with their loved ones with detailed messages frequently. This includes names, dates and locations and all delivered with emotion, sensitivity and empathy. The evening may include psychometry, photographs readings and psychic prediction.
Recent legislative guidelines insist that any Evening of Mediumship should be billed ‘for entertainment purposes’. Tony certainly uses his natural wit, showmanship and Cockney charisma to entertain. More importantly, Mediumship has the potential to change someone’s life and instil in them a sense of peace, comfort and purpose. We hope that nobody can fail to come away untouched by the experience

Shakespeare's The Tempest...A tale of betrayal and revenge.
“At this hour Lie at my mercy all mine enemies.” (Prospero Act 4 Scene 1)
A remote island … filled with music and mystery. For twelve years, the banished Prospero waits. Then finally, a tempestuous supernatural storm ensues bringing his enemies closer. Armed with magical books and a legion of spirits, he brings his powers to bear on his former tormentors and take his revenge. (The Tempest)
Gearbox Theatre Company brings to you an exciting production of Shakespeare’s The Tempest. In association with The Broadway Theatre, this performance draws its influence from the building itself.
The theatre built in 1937 as a cinema, later to become a theatre, has a stunning Art Deco interior and epic proportions provide clues for the world in which the story is set. The sound and music (composed and created by Matt Challinor) surrounds us, light dances across the stage and magic and illusion bestows moments of wonder.

A musical revue about body image, diets, the gym, selfies, Botox, nip ‘n’ tucks, photo-shopping, and what we endure trying to look good.
It’s a show about everybody for everybody!
Diana Diamonte hosts the evening, inspiring her four ‘boys’ to explore the naked truth about their bodies and how they feel about them. With a cast who act, sing and dance, this show boasts a host of brand new musical comedy numbers; with a finale strip routine guaranteed to bring the house down.
Please be advised the show contains nudity and themes of an adult nature. Age advisory of 16+
From LAMBCO Productions, the show asks if you are worried that your body isn’t perfect? Then “Skin Deep”’ is for you. Yes, YOU! It’s the ultimate look at a subject that obsesses us all: BODY IMAGE.
Too fat? Too thin? Never exercised? Gym crazy? Addicted to diets? Hate how you look in the nude?
This musical revue has a song for every hang-up, including “Embarrassing Bodies”, “Let it all Hang Out”, and “Does my Bum Look Big in This?”
The sensational female star and her four boys explore why we don’t all look like Amanda Holden or David Beckham, and celebrate the funny (and vulnerable) side of bodies. So join us for a riotous evening of fun, flesh and fabulous song.
A Try-Out of the show premiered at the Edinburgh Festival starring faith Brown and received excellent reviews. Then a three week run of the adapted and extended two-act version ran at Stockwell Playhouse in July 2017 - and again got brilliant reviews!
The show was nominated in four categories in the MTM Musical Theatre Awards – presented alongside the Scotsman Fringe First awards: UK Best Composer; UK Best Lyricist; UK Best Musical Production; and The Dress Circle.com Award for Best New Musical.
“This fast-moving show is a delightful capsule musical comedy” - The Stage
“Hilariously unbelievable… clever and riotously funny” - Edinburgh Evening News
“A really excellent musical theatre revue… a show for anybody with a body” - Musical Stages
“A riotous evening… Highlights included an ode to the hellish experience of working out (The Gym), a woman’s shopping trip (“Does My Bum Look Big in This?”) and a strip tease set to Hamlet’s soliloquy, which was one of the funniest things I’ve seen all year” - West End Wilma
“A Chorus Line meets Mrs Henderson Presents in this joyous and uplifting production” - Last Minute Theatre Tickets
“Top quality, naughty but nice, kinky yet perfectly innocent, sheer fun adult entertainment. Not to be missed” - Musical Theatre Review
“The show is professionally presented with considerable technical finesse… under the surface is a powerful and very funny show” - Act Drop UK
Please note: This show was previously titled “Boys in the Buff”, but has been re-branded so that it appeals to as wide an audience as possible.

Playing to audiences in excess of 300,000 each year...19-piece orchestra consists of a pianist, organist, drummer, three female vocals, guitar, bass guitar, two tenor saxophones, two alto saxophones, baritone saxophone, three trumpets, and three trombones...
Jools and his orchestra tours all over the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, France, Holland, and Belgium, and now they add The Broadway, Peterborough, to their schedule. Joining Jools is 80s icon Marc Almond. Other special guests include Gilson Lavis, plus vocalists Ruby Turner, Louise Marshall and Rosie Mae. Click here to book tickets.
“Does anyone embrace the joy of making music more than boogie-woogie piano man Jools Holland, whose shows with his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra grow better and better by the year?” – The Press, York.
In 1987, Jools formed “The Jools Holland Big Band” – comprising himself and Gilson Lavis. This has gradually metamorphosed into the current 19-piece “Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra”, which consists of pianist, organist, drummer, three female vocals, guitar, bass guitar, two tenor saxophones, two alto saxophones, baritone saxophone, three trumpets, and three trombones.
Jools’ career as a television presenter has run parallel to his musical career. He started in the early 1980s when he interviewed The Police for a documentary that was made while they were recording at George Martin's Montserrat studio. He then auditioned to become co-presenter (with Paula Yates) of “The Tube”. This achieved almost immediate cult status and discovered a whole new generation of musicians and comedians between 1981 and 1986. Jools also managed to secure a rare interview with Miles Davis, which was broadcast on 14th November 1986.
After presenting two series of “Juke Box Jury” in 1989 and then 26 shows of “The Happening” in 1990, he was asked in 1992 to host a new music programme for BBC Two. This combined his talent and experience as a musician with his skills as a TV presenter. This was “Later... with Jools Holland”. The show has reawakened the innovative spirit of “The Tube” and has just celebrated 25 years, 50 series and over 360 episodes of broadcast on BBC Two with a special show at the Royal Albert Hall last September.
Other television programmes include: “Name That Tune”; “Don't Forget Your Toothbrush”; “Beat Route”; “Jools Meets The Saint”; and, in 2002, “Jools' History Of The Piano”. He also conducted the interviews for the definitive Beatles “Anthology” and the Rolling Stones “Biography”.
“Jools Holland is literally unrivalled when it comes to modern day boogie-woogie pianists. Not simply because his astounding talent is beyond comparison, but also due the fact that he has brought the niche world of rhythm and blues to the masses – and very few can resist his infectious rhythms.” – Manchester Evening News

On May 26th, Sporting Life Stories in association with Snooker Legends is proud to host A SPORTING LIFE STORY with the five-time World Champion RONNIE O’SULLIVAN.
The Rocket stands alone as one of sport’s true characters in an age criticised for its lack of sporting personalities. From the early days of century breaks at the age of 10, through the major wins and 147s, see footage of some of the most magical moments ever witnessed. We could not pass up this unique opportunity to stage another exclusive night at The Broadway Theatre. VIP ticket holders will receive a signed paperback copy of Ronnie’s book ‘Framed’. Plus a commemorative printed picture of Ronnie presenting you the book.
In addition following the in-depth interview of his life story, in his own words, an audience Q and A means. You will have to chance to ask The Rocket a question too. This is Ronnie O'Sullivan as relaxed and open as you will ever see him.
It was clear O’Sullivan was destined to be a superstar from the moment he picked up a cue. He was a prodigy, making his first century break aged 10 and his first maximum break aged 15. He turned 16 in 1992 and turned pro too.
His unique rapid playing style earned him the nickname "The Rocket" - he didn’t waste much time capturing his first title. He won the 1993 UK Championship at the age of 17 years and 358 days. This made him the youngest player ever to win a ranking title – a record he still holds. He is also the youngest player to have won the Masters, having won his first of many in 1995 at the age of 19 years and 69 days. Ronnie holds the record for the most competitive century breaks with a staggering 944. He also holds the record for the most ratified maximum breaks in professional competition (14) and for the three fastest competitive maximum breaks. The quickest of which was compiled in 5 minutes and 20 seconds which you will see on the night.
His record in Triple Crown events now stands at five World Championships, a record seven Masters and six UK Championship titles.
In addition to Ronnie as always at this event John Virgo will be our very special guest. Interviewed on the night, he take's us back behind the scenes back in the days of the snooker halls.
Tickets are £25.00 (£45 for VIP ticket including picture with Ronnie and signed copy of book), click here to book or call 01733 306071 (Monday-Sunday 9am-5pm)
