Other exciting events coming soon…

Buttons Undone

  • 5th April 2019
  • 19:30
  • £18.50

"Button Undone" is a big bawdy barrel of laughs and although aimed at Over 18's, it doesn't contain any crude four-letter words, as the humour is unshamely in the Great Britain "Carry On" tradition of rib-tickling double entendres and innuendo. So if you're broad-minded and fancy a fun night out that turns traditional pantomine upside down to reveal its frilly bloomers hiding underneath, this is definately a show you won't want to miss.

And you know you're in a safe pair of hands when the frantic frolics and saucy shenanigans happening on stage are held together by Wales undisputed King of Comedy Owen Money as Buttons.

Doors open from 7.00pm and The Met Bar from 6.30pm.

Ceri’s energy, style, showmanship, love for the show and his appreciation of an audience shines through in this non stop, quick changing homage to all his favourite ladies.

Ceri brings them all lovingly to life with a touch of Las Vegas class rarely seen in the UK today. Once described as ‘Joe Longthorne meets Lily Savage... only with better legs!’


“I’ve seen hundreds of men dress up as women over the years, most of them disastrously so. A handful of them get this particular art form right, Ceri is one of that handful” (The Times)

“Slick and saucy, rude and risqué, fun and fantastic” (Leicester Mercury) 

 “This show deserves it’s 5 stars for Dupree’s costumes alone, but more than that, it’s just a terrific act, an extremely talented impersonator” (londontheatre.com)
