EVESHAM Arts Centre has unveiled its Autumn line-up with several more big names in the world of entertainment set to appear in the Vale.
The season starts next month with the popular Victoria Avenue venue hosing plenty of live music, stage and dance and comedy in the run up to Christmas.
Opening the new season will be a stunning tribute act to chart-toppers Take That - Re-Take That. The audience can enjoy all of the band's greatest tunes from the 1990s and since their comeback more than five years ago.
Talented pianist Benjamin Grosvenor makes an appearance to the town in October before Worcester based singing sensation Steve Maitland performs some of Michael Buble's smash hits in a special tribute to the Canadian singer.
Following the town's first ever comedy festival, which starred Jon Richardson performing to a sell-out crowd, the laughter keeps rolling on in the next few months as Live at the Apollo stars Josh Widdicombe and Seann Walsh come to Evesham at the end of September
Then five weeks later in November, television comedian Ava Vidal brings her national tour to Evesham and the centre's well established programme of stand-up shows will return for the new season.
Traditional stage and dance shows enter the mix as well with the Evesham Operatic and Dramatic Society present West End comedy drama Stepping Out next month and the town's popular Pheonix Theatre Group will stage Broadway musical Hairspray.
And the Arts Centre will be the host to special talks celebrating the life and times of such iconic names including artist Gustav Klimst, Charles Dickens, George Frideric Handel and the centre will also reflect on the romantic of the city of Paris during the jazz age.
Printed copies of the autumn have been sent to Evesham arts Centre members and can be found in tourist information centres, libraries, shops and cafés in and around the Vale.
