The King is Back: Ben Portsmouth – White Rock Theatre

This Friday evening Ben will be bringing his unique style to the White Rock Theatre to show audiences why he's earned his reputation as the best in the business.

Le Grand Mardi Gras Ball – St Mary in the Castle

Dress up to get down. Time to unleash the carnival spirit and don your most outrageous outfit for this legendary event. Featuring live music from the irrepressible Mr Wilson’s Second Liners. Think New Orleans meets ‘90s club classics. This collective provides a twist on the New Orleans tradition of uniformed brass bands - rather than old style hymns, these grooves wouldn’t be out of place among the 24 hour party people of the Hacienda.
