What’s On In Buckinghamshire and Berkshire This January



Miles Jupp

25 January

The Stables

Since Miles Jupp’s last tour finished at The London Palladium in 2017, he’s been in The Full Monty on Disney Plus, The Durrells and Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? on ITV, as well as a heap of episodes of Frankie Boyle’s New World Order and Have I Got News For You. Yet one sunny day, in the middle of all this, he suddenly suffered a brain seizure. This led to the discovery of a tumour the size of a cherry tomato, and a rather pressing need to undergo major neurosurgery. The experience has left him with a story to tell and a few things that he’d like to share with the room. So that’s exactly what he’s doing in his new show On I Bang – a tale about surprise, fear, luck, love and qualified medical practitioners.


Chris McCausland

28 January

Wilde Theatre, Bracknell

You might have seen Chris McCausland on Scared of the Dark, Would I Lie to You, Have I Got News for You, The Royal Variety, QI, Blankety Blank, The Last Leg, and plenty more as well. He’s been called an “overnight success” – even though he’s been doing this for yonks. Chris is hitting the road again with another masterclass in stand-up comedy that has literally been yonks in the making.



January 23-28

Aylesbury Waterside Theatre
054 77a9942 six uk tour 2023 pamela raith photography

The Queens are back – and they’re taking on the rest of the UK! With five Olivier award nominations and a 2022 Tony Award for Best Original Score, Henry the VIII’s hunt for an heir and his love of beheadings have made him one of the most famous monarchs in Britain’s history, with the tale of his six unfortunate wives the stock of any school history lesson. Created by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss, Six tells the story of these women via a brand-new musical. With songs like “Ex-Wives”, “Haus of Holbein” and “Don’t Lose Ur Head” taking inspiration from contemporary pop to re-write history, Six brings a night packed full of fun, laughter, and six sassy Queens ready to tell their story.
