SOLD OUT

Direct from the USA, the world's most successful Elvis tribute artist of all time returns to the UK by popular demand. Shawn is touring with his live band, orchestra and Elvis's original backing singers 'The Sweet Inspirations' who toured with Elvis from 1969-1977 and featured in concert movies That's The way It Is, Elvis On Tour and TV special Aloha From Hawaii.
The incredible Shawn Klush first exploded onto the UK scene when 6 million viewers tuned in to see him crowned 'The World's Greatest Elvis' live on BBC One. Soon after, Shawn was also crowned the first ever 'Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Champion' in Memphis, Tennessee.

On the back of his success, Shawn embarked on an unprecedented world tour, performing to thousands of fans in theatres and arenas across the USA, South America, Europe and Australia. He currently performs annually at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas on the very same stage that Elvis himself performed his record-breaking, live shows throughout the 70's.

rich-hallThursday 18 June 2015

After a sold out show in 2009, the star of TV's 'Live at the Apollo', 'QI', 'Stand Up for the Week' and 'Otis Lee Crenshaw – London Not Tennessee' returns to Middleton Arena.

Rich Hall's critically acclaimed grouchy, deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and the king of rapid-fire wit. The award-winning Montana native renowned for his expertly crafted tirades and quick fire banter with audiences and delightful musical sequences saddles up and hitches his wagon to tour the British Isles once again.

Joyeux Noel

joyneux noelWednesday 17 June 2015

Certificate PG-13 - 116 mins Drama, History, Music

On Christmas Eve during World War I, the Germans, French, and Scottish fraternize and get to know the men who live on the opposite side of a brutal war, in what became a true lesson of humanity.

In 1914, World War I, the bloodiest war ever at that time in human history, was well under way. However on Christmas Eve, numerous sections of the Western Front called an informal, and unauthorized, truce where the various front-line soldiers of the conflict peacefully met each other in No Man's Land to share a precious pause in the carnage with a fleeting brotherhood. This film dramatizes one such section as the French, Scottish and German sides partake in the unique event, even though they are aware that their superiors will not tolerate its occurrence.

Doors 6.30pm, starts 7pm

Prices: Adults £4, Children £2.50, Family ticket £11

buy tickets online or in person at the Arena Box Office or ring 0844 855 4020. (A transaction fee of £1.50 applies to online bookings plus a postage charge of £1.50 if required.)

All Quiet on the Western Front

quiet on the western frontWednesday 20 May 2015

Certificate UR - 136 mins Drama, War

A young soldier faces profound disillusionment in the soul-destroying horror of World War I.

This is an English language film (made in America) adapted from a novel by German author Erich Maria Remarque. The film follows a group of German schoolboys, talked into enlisting at the beginning of World War 1 by their jingoistic teacher. The story is told entirely through the experiences of the young German recruits and highlights the tragedy of war through the eyes of individuals. As the boys witness death and mutilation all around them, any preconceptions about "the enemy" and the "rights and wrongs" of the conflict disappear, leaving them angry and bewildered. This is highlighted in the scene where Paul mortally wounds a French soldier and then weeps bitterly as he fights to save his life while trapped in a shell crater with the body. The film is not about heroism but about drudgery and futility and the gulf between the concept of war and the actuality.

Doors 6.30pm, starts 7pm

Prices: Adults £4, Children £2.50, Family ticket £11

buy tickets online or in person at the Arena Box Office or ring 0844 855 4020. (A transaction fee of £1.50 applies to online bookings plus a postage charge of £1.50 if required.)
