Harry Hill heads up autumn bill

THE Corn Exchange and New Greenham Arts have today launched their new season of theatre, dance, comedy, family events and live music and we can reveal what you can look forward to between August and December.
You can expect the season of events at the Corn Exchange to get off with a bang as comedians Al Murray (already sold out) and Andy Hamilton launch an autumn of laughter which also includes two-nights of Harry Hill plus Danny Bhoy, Frisky and Mannish, Jenny Eclair and many more. Also coming up are Andy & Mike’s Tick Tock Time Machine, more soap stars than you can shake a stick at in Soap Opera, The Drifters, Vagina Monologues and of course, the pantomime Cinderella.
The season sees some inspirational dance, as some of the UK’s leading companies visit the Corn Exchange. Vincent Dance Theatre will present the UK première of their brand new show Motherland on October 5 and the outstanding Lost Dog present their Place Prize winning duet It Needs Horses on November 2, having won the biggest award in world dance in 2011. There is also the return of Ballet Black and the UK’s most exciting hip-hop dance extravaganza The Lock In! to look forward to in October.
Over at New Greenham Arts, a busy season sees the launch of a new monthly folk and acoustic music night – New Greenham New Folk. Launching the debut season, BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winners Tim Edey and Brendan Power will be performing on September 20, before O’Hooley and Tidow (October 13), BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Musician of the Year winner Megan Henwood (November 3) and a traditional Scottish ceilidh with The Ship Band on November 24.
Among the other offerings, the Corn Exchange also launches the Arts and Culture Club alongside the new season, offering members increased access to information about companies and productions at the venue, and providing a relaxed monthly ‘book-club-style’ get together to discuss with like-minded people what you have seen during the season.
Alongside the launch of the new season, the two venues have also taken the opportunity to change the box office number to a new, more efficient local rate number 0845 5218 218, so please take note before booking tickets. You can also book quickly and easily online at
