We Love Little Mix kick off the music month on Sat 1 Feb, with four fantastic singers and dancers who really capture the look, the sound and all the dance moves of one of the UK’s most loved Girl Bands. On Fri 7 Feb A Foreigner’s Journey pays tribute to bands Foreigner and Journey with the very best songs from each, including Don’t Stop Believing, Separate Ways, Cold As Ice, Juke Box Hero, Waiting For A Girl Like You and I Want To Know What Love Is, plus many more.

On Sat 22 Feb, The Epstein welcomes back the critically acclaimed Something About Simon. Having been born at The Epstein in 2018 to sell-out audiences, the show went on to 5-star rated performances on the Edinburgh Fringe, New York and Belfast. Now it returns to where it all started as singer-songwriter Gary Edward Jones recites the music of his idol, while telling his unique story through visuals, stage design and, of course, the music. Gary is a natural storyteller, tracing the sometimes-poignant moments in Paul Simon’s life and career, that occasionally mirror his own. Something About Simon is not a tribute show; it is one musician authentically honouring the music of another.
Closing out the month, The Jersey Beats perform on Tue 25 Feb. Celebrating the music of the 100 million album-selling Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons, it’s an evening of great music and fun, featuring Big Girls Don’t Cry, Walk Like A Man, Bye, Bye, Baby and Oh What A Night, it’s an evening of great music, fun and more.

Can you negotiate effectively with a pre-schooler who knows you’re clueless?
