Ever wondered what it would be like to sit on a polar bear’s lap? Or ride on its back? Have you ever tried to give a polar bear a bath, or clear up its poo?

But Tilly’s not scared.The story of a little girl who befriends a mischievous polar bear, this playful, funny and heart warming tale is one of imagination and growing up.

With dazzling puppetry, delicious music and dozens of laughs, The Bear is an unforgettable experience for the whole family. So bring a bear and join Tilly on a wild and magical adventure.

Count Arthur Strong: Is Anybody Out There? @ The Dukes
Oct 17 @ 8:00 pm

web

Presented by Live Nation Komedia Entertainment

As well as being the all-round entertainer we all know and love from the telly, Count Arthur Strong is also a lifelong fan of astronomy, since having been given a microscope, or whatever it is they use, for Christmas when he was a small precocious baby. In fact, it’s said the first word he spoke was ‘Uranus’.

In this, his brand-new show, he seamlessly combines the very best showbiz entertainment you’ll currently find, in the world, possibly? As he wrestles with some of the big questions that other all-round entertainers shy away from. Such as:

Are we alone in the universe?

Is there life on Mars bars?

2lbs of potatoes.

Packet of ginger nuts.

Don’t lose this shopping list.

“Do not miss this not to be missed type of thing! If I wasn’t in the show I’d definitely be in the audience watching myself intently. Laughing and learning in equal measure. Thoroughly happy to pay the admission fee and definitely not asking for a refund. Also not rustling sweet wrappers and fiddling with my sodding telephone with a gormless expression on my face. See you there!” – Arthur
