If you’re looking for a good night out, the Albany Theatre, Coventry has an amazing line up of entertainment coming up. There’s everything from ballet to classic horror with Jekyll and Hyde. Also the unforgettable music of Barry Steele in The Roy Orbison Story. And nearer to Christmas the Albany welcomes Karl Loxley: The Songs of Christmas. Book your seats for a festive celebration of Christmas classics! And not to be missed is Status Quo legend Francis Rossi who will be chatting about his amazing career and playing some tunes on the acoustic guitar in a Tunes and Chat 2023 night.

Here's a run down of what’s in store:


Join Ballet Theatre UK as we follow the yellow brick road and discover all the wonders of Oz. Enjoy Dorothy, the Scarecrow, Tinman, and Lion, (and yes Toto too) as they seek the Wonderful Wizard to find that there’s no place like home! The Wizard of Oz is a two act, full-length, ballet adaptation of the iconic tale by L. Frank Baum, told through the magic of classical dance. Set to a classical score which brings the story to life, this production is family friendly and is the perfect way to introduce children to the classical ballet. The production is presented with beautiful backdrops, stunning theatrical sets and costumes evoking the iconic sketches by W.W. Denslow, from the original publication.

BT UK: The Wizard of Oz Thursday 16 November at 7.30pm. Suitable for all ages. Prices from £16.


Darkside of the Moon goes Gold!

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic album The Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd, Darkside, the Pink Floyd Show will be performing the whole of the album in glorious quadraphonic surround sound, just as it was intended. It is also Darkside’s eighteenth year on the road and so they are also celebrating their coming of age! The show will feature the best-selling album plus a wide variety of the back catalogue in a two-and-a-half-hour spectacular that has been leaving audiences enthralled and elated across the country.

In a new and enthralling one-man stage adaptation of the classic tale of terror, acclaimed actor Jonathan Goodwin plays both Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde. Experienced Victorian London, and the unbridled horror of this perennial favourite. The City is paralyzed with fear when the repugnant and wicked Mr Hyde embarks upon his criminal spree. But what is his shocking secret, and what possible connection can he have with the dour and respectable Dr Jekyll? Goodwin performs in a show scripted by himself and co-directed by Goodwin and Gary Archer.
