Hope you're enjoying the sunshine! And thanks so much for listening into Radio 4 for the Gambler (there's still one ep left on the iplayer if you wanted to hear it)
New news in - there are some live shows I'm doing coming up - please come...
4th June (NEXT WEEK) Richmond Theatre, Richmond, London - FLANDERS AND SWANN - it's over 50 years since the originals played there and NOW WE'RE BACK! To celebrate they've agreed I can offer you kind people who read this a deal on tickets - For £15 tickets, they can Quote ‘Vollie Offer’ with the Box Office or enter promo code VOLLIE15 online. This is the link.
they've made me say the following as it's controversial - "Please note that a £2.90 per ticket booking fee and £2.85 transaction fee applies." (As they would normally.)
That only applies to Richmond!
Next up on the 12th June something really special - I'm doing a 10th ANNIVERSARY BATH SHOW SPECIAL in NORWICH - it will be so much fun and I'd love you all to come if you're near. Here are the details.
And JULY 10th FLANDERS AND SWANN hits the oxford playhouse - tickets are selling fast so please do send anyone you know along - it should be a super night. The link for information.
thanks so much for reading this and I really hope to see you at one of the shows really soon
all the best
