CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.

Bob, Brel & Me - T01098057573

Barb Jungr's reputation as ?one of the world's great cabaret singers' (Time Out New York) may have gone to her head, as she will now only sing songs by writers whose names start with the letter B. But this means she can return to two colossi of popular song, whose writing has helped define her whole career. Any performance of an existing song is a conversation between the writer and the singer, and the conversation between Bob, Brel and Barb is a particularly stimulating one, not least because of the way in which gender informs all of their work. Things could get heated. Uh-oh. In this brand new collection for 2019, Barb turns her acclaimed ability at reinvention and reinterpretation to a set of Dylan and Brel songs she has never tackled before on stage, all in original arrangements. They include 'Les coeurs tendres' (The tender hearts), 'Voir un ami pleurer' (To see a friend break down and cry), 'Mr Tambourine Man' and 'This Wheel's on Fire.

Barb Jungr Sings Bob Dylan - T0563746153

This electrifying show brings together the very best of the Dylan material that Barb Jungr has perfected over the past 15 years. Songs which are fierce, political, passionate and romantic, performed in a voice which is "shockingly expressive, with an astonishing palette of colours" (The Observer), something which may or may not be true of Dylan's own vocal technique. But whilst he might not schlep to Scandinavia to collect, this is a songwriter of genius who always delivers.
