1. MY ROMANTIC HISTORY

A brand new comedy about love, loss and laminating machines. By D C Jackson, directed by Kevin Spence

One moment you’re colleagues, then a quick grope after Friday night drinks and suddenly you’re in a relationship.

A brand new comedy about love, loss and laminating machines. By D C Jackson, directed by Kevin Spence

One moment you’re colleagues, then a quick grope after Friday night drinks and suddenly you’re in a relationship. If you haven’t met someone by the time you graduate, you’re going to marry some idiot from your work. It’s that simple. Do you know how they get animals to breed in captivity? They put them in the same cage.

When Tom and Amy get together after an office social, they find themselves living in each other’s pockets. But it’s not their lack of chemistry that’s the problem: it’s that neither of them can quite get over their childhood sweethearts. Not suitable for children. This play contains very strong language and adult sexual themes.

3. SNOW PATROL

Snow Patrol’s new album, Fallen Empires, arrives with a serious reputation attached. The Irish/Scottish five piece have sold over 11 million albums and have been responsible for several era-defining singles, including Run, Chocolate, and Chasing Cars (which spent an incredible 104 weeks in the UK Top 75 and was voted song of the decade in a Channel 4 poll). Their albums have been nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, Grammys and MTV Europe Music Awards, with Final Straw landing them an Ivor Novello Award in 2005. By anyone’s standards, it’s been a pretty good century so far.

Containing the hit single ‘Called Out In The Dark’ and current single ‘This Isn’t Everything You Are’, ‘Fallen Empires’ was released on 14th November on Fiction Records. Snow Patrol are singer Gary Lightbody, guitarist Nathan Connolly, bassist Paul Wilson, drummer Jonny Quinn, and keyboardist Tom Simpson.
