Searching for Happiness 4th Wall Theatre 06-12-2019 19:30 Tickets $25 Mental Health is no laughing matter – until you meet Nathan Hedley. Spoiler Alert....He just so happens to be extraordinarily funny, like the love child of Jack Dee and Bret McKenzie The show takes us on Nathan's journey starting with his first trip to the doctor where he achieved his highest score on a test ever!! Just a shame it was the depression test. From there it’s a short step to counselling and the realities of anti-depressants But this is no maudlin, self-indulgent, tears of a clown show. It is classic observational comedy mirroring back the humour of our age of mental illness. By being honest and humorous about his life, Nathan might just gift us all a joyful way to navigate our own. Nominated best newcomer Nelson & Palmerston North Fringe 2018 Complimentary Antipasto platters as part of ticket price 50% of Ticket price to be donated to Rural Support Trust Taranaki Click here

Midge Ure & The Mockers Theatre Royal TSB Showplace New Plymouth 03-03-2020 19:30 From $91.50 Midge Ure & The Mockers UK legend Midge Ure - the voice of Ultravox, plus local heroes The Mockers live in concert. Midge Ure - Live Aid co-founder and Ultravox frontman brings his dynamic new group 'Band Electronica' to New Zealand on ‘The 1980 Tour’ – an awesome performance of the Vienna album in its entirety, plus Visage classics, and a surprise or two. This amazing double bill also features The Mockers (Forever Tuesday Morning, One Black Friday, Alvison Park + More!). The last time Midge Ure (with Ultravox) and The Mockers appeared on the same bill was at the third Sweetwaters Festival, in Pukekawa during the summer of 81/82 – a time when the musical landscape worldwide was in the midst of great change. The guitar-driven dominance that had propelled rock and punk throughout 70s had ended, as synthesizers signalled the sound of the future and video transformed the look of the pop charts. The 1980s had exploded into life and nothing would be the same again. At the heart of this seismic leap into a futuristic new dawn were two records that set the template for much of what was to follow. Visage’s single ‘Fade To Grey’ from the band’s debut eponymous album and Ultravox’s single ‘Vienna’ from the album of the same name. Both records were co-written, recorded and produced by one of the leading characters in British music, Midge Ure. Click here
