Lunchtime show: Ulick might be an octogenarian but he still has a twinkle in his eye and a spring in his step.
A cross between storyteller Eamonn Kelly and Podge and Rodge, he will entertain you with his collection of hilarious and naughty stories which may (or may not) be true. Oh, and he'll have some songs as well.
As some of Ulick's stories are a little bit naughty (not too much though), this show is not suitable for under 16's. More

The Butt Drama Circle present the much loved musical black comedy about a hapless florist shop worker raises a plant that feeds on human blood and flesh.
Originally conceived as a 1960 low budget movie by Roger Corman the stage version opened in 1982 and went on to enjoy a five year Broadway run. Audiences will also be familiar with the 1986 feature film version directed by Frank Oz and featuring Rick Moranis and Steve Martin among others.
It’s packed full of great music in the style of early ‘60’s rock ‘n’roll, doo-wop and Motown with hit songs including ‘Skid Row (Seymour)’, ‘Somewhere That’s Green’ and ‘Suddenly Seymour’.
Worth seeing just for the amazing plant puppetry alone! More
