Solihull Arts Complex’s Autumn season unveiled

Solihull Arts Complex is preparing for a busy Autumn season with a programme offering something for everyone.

The Complex is welcoming some famous faces including shows by TV’s golf commentator Peter Alliss and adventurer Charley Boorman (pictured left below) providing personal tales and insights.

Their season includes comedy-drama Panto Girls (pictured right), restoration romp The Country Wife and satire show An Evening with the Humour of Bob Newhart & Tom Lehrer.

Barnstormers Comedy nights, featuring comedians from the London Comedy Circuit, return to the more intimate setting of the Studio and are joined by monthly acoustic rock nights: ‘Rock Me Gently.’

There is also entertainment from the likes of Malcolm Stent, Richard Digance and Four Poofs and a Piano – the house band from Friday Night with Jonathan Ross - on their new ‘Back in Business Tour’.

Family shows on offer include CBeebies favourite Katy Ashworth, Ballet UK’s production of The Snow Queen, Snow Dog and Magical Extravaganza on Ice.

There is also the chance for local amateur societies to shine with performances of musicals such as; Half a Sixpence, South Pacific, Return to the Forbidden Planet plus Wilde’s farce The Importance of Being Earnest.

There is plenty of music on offer including tributes to Queen, Johnny Cash, Elvis and the Beatles along with a host of other shows covering jazz, blues, rock and opera.

No Autumn would be complete without the annual family pantomime. This year sees Solihull’s first ever Robin Hood starring Malcolm Stent accompanied by a professional cast.

Also look out for a range of workshops now on offer for children and adults including dance, art, fitness and wellbeing.
