ABC0 The Lexicon of Love
Martin Fry’s timeless The Lexicon Of Love went straight to number one upon release. Fusing dance floor finesse with a post-punk attitude, the album spawned timeless tracks such Poison Arrow, The Look Of Love, Tears Are Not Enough, and All Of My Heart. The album saw ABC enchant the world with their own unique brand of pop and remains one of the best albums of all time.
The Lexicon Of Love Orchestra Tour first came to fruition in 2009 with countless 5 star reviews from a one off show At The Royal Albert Hall with Martin donning his iconic gold lamé suit. It sees Martin joined by Southbank Sinfonia and longtime collaborator Anne Dudley as conductor for a truly magical evening celebrating this pop masterpiece. Next year will be 15 years since that first partnership that sees audiences returning again and again.

The Clockworks: A quicksilver band, pulling references from across music, film, novels and art to create weaving, tragi-comic tales of the Everyman. Formed in Galway and now living in London, The Clockworks are James McGregor, Sean Connelly, Damian Greaney and Tom Freeman.
In 2018 the band made a plan: they were going to sell out the 90-capacity upstairs venue of Galway’s famous Roisín Dubh in May, sell out the 280-capacity downstairs in October, and then move to London. Having sold out both shows precisely as planned, in January 2019 the band moved to a flat above a bakery in North London, fuelled by blind faith and determination. By the end of the month, the quartet were signed to singles-only label Creation23.
The Tiger Lillies
Post-punk pioneers The Tiger Lillies join forces with cabaret legend David Hoyle for a new concert about the meaninglessness and absurdity of existence.

David Hoyle is the original performance avalanche – all-singing, all-raging bona fide legend. He’s appeared in his own Channel 4 TV series, in films and on stages worldwide.

Six years after the group’s monumental self-titled album, everything is alive finds Slowdive locating evermore contours of its immersive, elemental sound.
The new record began with Halstead in the role of writer and producer, working on demos at home and experimenting with a ‘more minimal electronic record’. Slowdive’s collective decision-making ultimately drew the group back towards their signature reverb-drenched guitars, but that first concept seeped into the compositions.
‘As a band, when we’re all happy with it, that tends to be the stronger material,’ Halstead says. ‘We’ve always come from slightly different directions, and the best bits are where we all meet in the middle.’
Adam Flood: Remoulded
Komedia | 18.30 | £10/£12
‘Ay up ducks, it’s me (fella doing the show). It’s a stand-up odyssey about reinvention with a few tricks up its sleeve*, so get on Stoke-on-Trent’s premium cultural export. Before the Edinburgh Fringe my blurb said that critics are already calling the show ‘please stop emailing’ and ‘unsubscribe’. It was funny but now they’ve undermined me by saying nice stuff so that blurb doesn’t really work – a crown of thorns. It’s a good show, see ya there.
The Original Harlem Globetrotters
The World Famous Harlem Globetrotters are bringing their newly reimagined tour to the UK. The epitome of Globetrotter excellence; the new tour will feature unsurpassed basketball wizardry night after night. For over 95 years, the Harlem Globetrotters have been committed to spreading joy through their artful athleticism and unparalleled basketball skills.
This is a basketball event like no other. Ankle-breaking moves, jaw-dropping swag, and rim-rattling dunks are only some of the thrills you can expect from this new version of the Globetrotters game. Part streetball from the players who defined it, part interactive family entertainment, the live event will show off the best of the Globetrotters in a dazzling exhibition of talent and game.
There’s a difference between having fun and being happy, says Justin Young. And in the space between fun and happiness lies the sixth Vaccines album, Pick-Up Full of Pink Carnations.
It’s a record that drips with fun – 10 songs in just over half an hour, packed with hooks and melodies and pop smarts – but which explores the way real life lets us down, no matter what we tell the world on our Instagram stories.
This is the first Vaccines album since the departure of Freddie Cowan – touring member Timothy Lanham has stepped up to full Vaccine status as lead guitarist – and it felt like a fresh start. Cowan was missed on a personal level, but as a father to a young family, he no longer wanted to uproot himself to record or go on long tours. It was an easy decision for both him and the band, and they remain friends. But the group was reinvigorated by change.

The duo explains, ‘this album is for anyone who feels like an outsider. Otherness is defined as being or feeling different in appearance or character from what is familiar, expected, or generally accepted. Ironically, this feeling of otherness is one we all share and experience, orbiting on our own planets’.
