SOME MOTHERS DO ‘AVE 'EM AT SOUTHEND'S PALACE THEATRE (24TH-28TH JULY)

Who's It For? Great for families with older children.

Why We Love It: Who doesn't remember the lovably inept Frank Spencer of the super-popular sitcom Some Mothers Do ‘Ave 'Em? Whether or not you've seen the original TV series by Raymond Allen, you'll love the stand-up tour of the same name, which will be appearing at Southend's Palace Theatre for five days consecutively later this month - from 24th-28th July.

Joe Pasquale (formerly of New Faces, Spamalot, The Producers and I'm A Celebrity) is a local personality that we love, and he has been chosen to pose as the infamous Frank. Meanwhile Suzie Blake will be remembered by those of you who watched the box in the early 2000s as Rovers barmaid Ben Unwin in Coronation Street. She is playing Frank's disapproving mother-in-law as he embarks on a new career as a magician. The July dates are the only ones on offer in Essex for the foreseeable future, so book now to pay tribute to a classic!

What's The Cost? £25 upwards per ticket.

JOE PASQUALE'S 'A FEW OF HIS FAVOURITE THINGS' AT SOUTHEND’S PALACE THEATRE (23RD SEPT)

Who Is It For? Adults - couples or friends.

Why We Love It: Joe Pasquale will return to the stage in a very different guise later in the summer, for his stand-up tour 'A Few of His Favourite Things'. It will be the Essex-based comedian's 30th anniversary and could include some very special celebrations! He promises that a comedy gig with him will be "like riding a rollercoaster" for his audience! Joe was educated in Grays, so is one of our own, and despite living and travelling in an impressive selection of places, he has always regarded Essex as his home. He'll be at the Palace Theatre in Southend on 23rd September.

What's The Cost? £24 per ticket.

You'll be able to feast on a selection of mouth-watering curries while being entertained by no fewer than three acts a night. The next two eagerly awaited dates are 26th July and 23rd August.
