Lee Nelson 19th May
“In this sort of form Nelson is irresistible… there aren’t many better comedians to turn to” The Telegraph
Lee Nelson Tour extended to cover legal fees for Theresa May stunt Due to huge demand, and over-priced lawyers, Lee is extending his smash-hit tour for a second time, adding a final 30 dates to his huge 150-show run. You’ve seen him sneaking into places he shouldn’t be, now come and see him where he most definitely should be: live on stage with his sensational Serious Joker tour. “Comedy legend” The Sun “Get him out!” Donald Trump “You Should Be Ashamed Of Yourself” Sepp Blatter* FIFA President *Blatter has since been sacked after a massive corruption scandal. Who’s ashamed now? Recommended Age: Parental Guidance is advised.

David Baddiel
20th May 2018
Following a sold out run at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory and two critically-acclaimed West End runs, David Baddiel takes his Olivier-nominated one-man show to theatres nationwide.
My Family: The Sitcom is a show about memory, ageing, infidelity, dysfunctional relatives, moral policing on social media, golf, and gay cats. A massively disrespectful celebration of the lives of David Baddiel’s late sex-mad mother, Sarah, and dementia-ridden father, Colin. Come and be offended on David’s behalf! Recommended Age: 14+

Scott Mathews
25 May
Winchester Guildhall are excited to welcome back the wonderful Scott Matthews after his special performance in November 2016.
Scott Matthews’ ground- breaking debut album, Passing Stranger earned him serious critical acclaim with its bold mix of folk, rock, blues and Eastern-inspired song-writing, and in 2007 his first single ‘Elusive’ won the Ivor Novello Award for ‘Best Song Musically and Lyrically’.

From here Scott went on to perform on a number of international sell-out tours with respected artists such as Bert Jansch, Robert Plant and Alison Kraus, Foo Fighters, Rufus Wainwright and Tori Amos.
