BrochureCannon and Ball are one of Britain’s all-time greatest comedy duos. Tommy and Bobby have carved their careers from decades of performances in all different types of venues. In the 1980s no-one could touch them. They had hit TV series on mainstream television, Summer Specials, Christmas Specials, everyone wanted them and still to this day are much loved and in demand. They are a favourite act for families and continue to fill theatres time and time again. They have had a whirlwind of a career and it’s not over yet. These comedy legends are a perfect fit – from the ‘retro’ style of Step Back in Time to the ‘naughty but nice’ Ooh La La.

Romano Frediani is one of the world’s best comedic jugglers coming to us direct from Las Vegas. Originally from Italy, Romano is from generations of circus entertainers. You can truly say that performing in front of an audience is in his blood. He started performing along side his father, Nino Frediani, who was the fastest juggler of his time. Romano’s slick style mixed with audience participation makes him one of the most entertaining new generation acts and is always a big hit and highlight of any show.
