Local Events

Now the clocks have changed and it's lighter later, you may have more of an urge to venture out for evening entertainment. If so, make sure you check out the Arts Centre over the next couple of weeks. First off they have celebrated broadcaster, raconteur, writer and cook, Hardeep Singh Kohli combining comedy with inventive cuisine on Saturday 10 April. Just think Ready Steady Cook but with great cooking and funny anecdotes, all delivered by Glaswegian Hardeep in his own unique, articulate and utterly charming way. Tickets are £12.

If you like Hazel O'Connor, then there are just a few tickets left for her performance on 15th April. Make sure you don't miss out!

Talking of music, Ben Waters, one of the world's leading boogie woogie/rock n roll piano players, is playing on Saturday 17 April, with the Fraser Tilly Trio as support. This whirlwind musician plays some of the fastest boogie woogie piano you'll ever come across and the Ben Waters Band presents a great line up of superb musicians, good sounds and, above all, great fun! His raunchy vocals and exuberant style have earned him a superb reputation as one of the genres finest performers.

Finally, picked as one of the comedy highlights for 2010 by The Times Playlist, Laura Solon’s show will appear at the Swindon Arts Centre on Friday 16 April. Laura - from BBC 1’s Harry and Paul and Radio 4’s Talking and Not Talking – presents tepid-shot publisher Diana Lewis, scrambling to find a writer to finish a book and save the company from crisis. Her obstacles include an American Super Agent, a lightly tanned boss, a call centre worker, a diversity officer, The French and a dead rabbit called Ian.

To book all tickets call the Arts Centre on 01793 614837.
