Internationally acclaimed Canadian stand-up Craig Campbell brings his brand new show 'Thrilling Mic Hunt' to Taunton's Brewhouse following a hugely successful autumn run.

Craig has supported Frankie Boyle on two sell-out national tours, has performed smokin' sets on Dave’s One Night Stand (Dave), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC Three), Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow (BBC One) and has more recently been touring the critically acclaimed 2012 Edinburgh show ‘Return of the Lumberjacks’ alongside fellow Canadians; Stewart Francis and Glenn Wool.

Vienna Festival Ballet

Vienna Festival Ballet (est.1980)



Audiences have the opportunity to catch one of Tchaikovsky’s world famous classical ballets The Nutcracker when the highly acclaimed Vienna Festival Ballet company returns to town.

The enchanting tale of The Nutcracker is one of the best-loved ballets and centres around Clara and her nutcracker doll, which magically transforms into a princely soldier. Their adventures see the Prince and Clara combat the Mouse King and join the Sugar Plum Fairy for a wonderful trip to a Kingdom made entirely of sweets.

“Vienna Festival Ballet, with its talented array of young artistes, ensures you won’t see dancers going through the motions”


“An excellent company of talented young dancers. Their energy and enthusiasm is breathtaking.”


“This production looks and feels absolutely right”

 lee hurst

 In this stand up show, comedian Lee Hurst is back on the road to ask audiences what winds them up? 

Mostly people get on with living their lives, but everyone has at least one thing that gets on their nerves and makes their blood boil. What's yours?

Lee, like all Brits, loves a right good moan, but he also likes to come up with solutions too.
