Art & Culture


Valentine’s day is over but is it done? Does someone owe you BIG time for their lack of romance on the one romantic day of the year? Or are you the one in the doghouse?

Hotel Heartbreak sounds like a place in Blackpool, where the crew from Sweet Valley High go before jumping off the pier. Really, it is a place created from the imaginations of the Semi-detached Comedy Team. They do site-specific interactive comedy gigs and this time they take over the Hemingford Arms as hotel staff inviting you to participate in 'Perfect Match' a dating game for the single people out there or for the couples there is counselling and therapy on offer. Or perhaps advice on 'Killing your wife on a budget' is what you need? Whether you choose to get involved or decide to take enjoy the night from a back seat this night is sure to be an experience and with a cast that includes Aisling Bee, Laura Lexx and Richard Todd it is sure to be a good one.
Admit it you love a hoedown. Everyone loves a hoedown, even the kids who stand in the dark corners of every dance floor and refuse to dance can't resist a hoedown. And Rich Hall's hoedown is the ultimate mix of comedy and musical mastery that is sure to have you high on endorphins. If you aren’t sure who Rich Hall is – he looks like a roadie or hick from the deep South. He continuously has sell out Fringe shows, is a recognisable face from Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Have I got News For You. Oh and he has won two Emmy awards. The most important thing to note is that Hall's dry wit is the type of tonic you need post Valentine's.
