Jump into bed with one or two of your closest friends – with gourmet food from pop-up restaurants – and relax while watching the latest blockbusters. The Mov’In Bed program features international films, horror, Disney classics and even Japanese Anime.

My Dad Wrote A Porno

With almost 160 million downloads since 2015, the My Dad Wrote A Porno podcast has taken the world by storm. Jamie Morton’s father has written an erotic novel called Belinda Blinked. Rather than hiding it, he and his friends James Cooper and Alice Levine have come together to pick it apart chapter by chapter.

Reading chapters to millions of listeners, the podcast is a hilarious hit, with an HBO special and live shows adding to its fame.

In January, Jamie, Alice and James are back At the Palais Theatre to share what’s happening in the novel Belinda Blinked, and we can’t wait.

Grab a ticket for a great night of comedy, but hurry – they will sell out.
