With stand-up comedy, live music, musicals and more, Newark Palace Theatre has launched its biggest season yet with a new brochure.

Gracing the cover is punk legend John Lydon – aka Johnny Rotten – who, on Thursday 30th May, will tell the audience tales of how he and the Sex Pistols changed the face of music and sparked a cultural revolution.

For 007 fans there is a James Bond Concert Spectacular on Sunday, 26 May, hosted by former ‘Miss Moneypenny’ Caroline Bliss, from Living Daylights, while Soul Satisfaction’s The American Four Tops will make their Palace debut on Saturday, 15 June. This paves the way for the Detroit sound to continue with The Magic of Motown show on Friday 27 September.

September will be a great month for comedy when Irish comedy ace Ed Byrne serves up laughs on the 28th when he stops off in Newark on his latest tour, while more stand-up will be provided by The Comedy Store on Saturday 14 September.

The Palace welcomes the tour of Willy Russell’s award-winning West End musical Blood Brothers from 22 to 26 October, telling the story of two brothers from opposite sides of the tracks who meet again with tragic circumstances.

From the producers of rock spectaculars Anything for Love and Vampires Rock, comes brand new show Love Hurts with 25 epic power ballads and anthems on Saturday 8 June.

Grammy Award-winning guitar virtuoso Albert Lee will play on Tuesday 18 June and there’s more live music with Totally Tina, The Drifters, The Glenn Miller Band Spectacular, The Glam Rock Show – Get it On as well as Frankie – The Concert.

At Newark Castle outdoor theatre includes The Bench by Keir McAllister, Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Little Women, Wilde About Oscar, and the Gondoliers.

Coun Rowan Cozens said, portfolio holder for Heritage, Culture and the Arts, said: “A night at the theatre is one of life’s great pleasures and the Palace Theatre has a range of shows that will make you laugh; make you cry and make you want to get up and dance.

“We are lucky to have such a beautiful theatre in the town, have a look at our new show brochure and see if there is something that takes your catches your eye. Book now and enjoy a night or afternoon at the theatre.”
