The founder members of the truly legendary Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band promise a surreal evening of music and mirth, with their psychedelic take on music hall, rock n roll and jazz.

This is panto for adults, with robots, unsuitable medical technology and ancient theatrical props.

Formed in a distant 60s art school by great British eccentric Vivian Stanshall, The Bonzos provided the missing link between the Goons and the Pythons with such classics as 'Urban Spaceman', 'Jollity Farm', 'Hunting Tigers Out In India', 'Monster Mash' and 'Can Blue Men Sing The Whites?'

Comedians Stephen Fry and Adrian Edmondson have proclaimed the Bonzos as “our heroes!”. Eddie Izzard and Bill Bailey acknowledge them as a formative influence and "they're as sharp today, both musically and satirically, as they ever were" (Shindig).

Inspired by their motto 'if you don't rehearse, it can't go wrong', expect a show “so packed with entertainment it remains a beguiling mystery, a joyful triumph” (Who's Laughing Now).
