(Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury, February 1)

AS A long-serving troubadour of the folk and acoustic music scene, master songwriter and storyteller Steve Knightley has spent much of his life on the road, collecting songs, stories, anecdotes and observations – with the odd disaster along the way.

Steve once again takes to England’s highways and byways to present Roadworks – a show which builds on the success of his sell-out 2018 solo tour Songs and Stories. This is a stripped-back, one-man show that’s infused with wit, warmth and alchemy, beautifully illustrated by his trenchant songs of history, love and conscience.

n Tickets are £19.50 and the performance starts at 8pm. Visit

(Storyhouse, Chester, February 6)

British actor Brian Blessed is known for his hearty, king-sized portrayals on film and television.

An actor with an eloquent wit and booming, operatic voice, An Evening with Brian Blessed is an experience that nobody should miss. His eloquence and humour will have the audience captured from the moment he walks on stage until the moment he leaves.

Brian will talk about his career on stage and screen including anecdotes from Flash Gordon, Blackadder, I Claudius and  Z Cars and his many appearances in Shakespearean Productions.

He is also an avid climber and has climbed Everest and Kilimanjaro amongst others.

His show may not be suitable for people of a nervous disposition or those who aren’t expecting the odd expletive!
