Funny Girl at Theatre Royal @ Theatre Royal
May 16 – May 20 all-day
Funny Girl at Theatre Royal @ Theatre Royal | Newcastle upon Tyne | England | United Kingdom

Hot on the heels of a record breaking, critically acclaimed West End run, this ‘utterly irresistible’ (The Sunday Times) new production of Funny Girl stars Olivier Award-winning Sheridan Smith as Fanny Brice.

Funny Girl brought global fame to Barbra Streisand 50 years ago, boasting some of the most iconic songs in film and theatre history, including People and Don’t Rain On My Parade. Half a century later, this ‘exhilarating embrace of a production’ (The Independent) comes to Newcastle after wowing critics and audiences alike in London’s West End. This iconic musical tells the story of Fanny Brice, whose vocal talents and comedic ability see her rise from Brooklyn music hall singer to Broadway star.

Don’t miss your chance to see this ‘phenomenal’ (The Telegraph) production at the Theatre Royal for 1 week only in May 2017.

The producers of Funny Girl cannot guarantee the appearance of any particular artist, which is always subject to illness and holidays. Sheridan Smith will not be performing the role of Fanny Brice at the Wednesday matinee performance.

Last Night at the Proms at Newcastle City Hall @ Newcastle City Hall

Last Night at the Proms at Newcastle City Hall @ Newcastle City Hall | Newcastle upon Tyne | England | United Kingdom

Daft as a Brush are delighted to be hosting this year’s Last Night of the Proms concert, full of pomp and circumstance, at Newcastle City Hall.

After a successful concert in 2016 this North East Charity funded a new ambulance specifically to transport children with cancer to and from the Great North Children’s Hospital. Over 6000 cancer patient journeys last year were only made possible by the dedication and service of a magnificent team of 254 volunteer staff. There is no charge to the patients for our service, which transports them in a safe and comfortable environment for their chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy treatment, then returning them home immediately.

The concert continues the 25 year tradition of a Last Night of the Proms Concert within the City of Newcastle for the benefit of those suffering from cancer and undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy.

This year the Concert Team are crafting another traditional programme. There will be a supporting cast of choirs from across the age spectrum to lift the roof and to make this another memorable evening.

Through the event, the charity endeavours to ensure that all of your ticket money represents a donation to the charity.
