Ricky Cool

a-night-at-the-flamingo-doncaster-a5-fliers-frontA NIGHT AT THE FLAMINGO

Visit one of Soho’s iconic music venues of the early 1960’s in the company of Ricky Cool and the In Crowd. Red Hot Rhythm and Blues will be served up with a side order of classic early Jamaican grooves just as it was at the Flamingo’s legendary ‘All Nighters’ when Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames were the resident band.


Not only was the Flamingo Club a home for the burgeoning Mod scene of early ‘60’s it also boasted a cosmopolitan clientele where black American GI’s and West Indians would rub shoulders with pop stars, actors, socialites, gangsters and prostitutes. It was THE place to be go to and be seen and played its own small part in the biggest political scandal of the 1960’s – The Profumo Affair.


Midlands based Ricky Cool has fronted bands including The Icebergs, The Rialtos. He also co-founded The Big Town Playboys, the band that bought the talents of Mike Sanchez to Worldwide attention. He has toured with the likes of Billy Connolly, shared a stage with George Harrison and played in the same band as Robert Plant. Now, with his 6 piece band The In Crowd, Ricky Cool is bringing his own inimitable music to you all.


As Ricky says, “The band members are all top class musicians with excellent pedigrees, who have worked with artists including Ruby Turner, The Beat, Alexis Korner, X Ray Spex and Fine Young Cannibals. The music we play is timeless and our show is enjoyed by young and old alike. The enjoyment we have on stage rubs off on our audience and a great time is had by one and all.”


Be prepared for a great evening’s entertainment, recreating the atmosphere of a celebrated music venue. You can sit back and enjoy the show or get involved and dance. Who knows, Vicky Wickham may spot you and give you a ticket to be in the audience for ‘Ready Steady Go.’

Comedy Triple Bill

Presented by Baroque Theatre Company

(Three fast-paced, one act plays giving fun-seeking audiences a full and entertaining evening)

Directed by Adam Morley | Produced by Claire Bibby

A Jolly Sinister Jape (by Elliot Strange)

A pastiche 1920’s thriller with a plot that defies description. This is Famous Five fun for adults as Stubby, Ophelia, Biffy and Fatty find themselves trapped in a mysterious house during a thunderstorm. Is this someone’s idea of a jape? Or is something far more sinister going on? All is revealed in this madcap comedy set in the Roaring Twenties. It’s fast and furious with a liberal sprinkling of hilarious period slang, along with mystery and thrills.
(Running time approx 30 minutes)

Last Tango in Little Grimley (by David Tristram)
Membership of the local amateur dramatic society has dwindled to four and the audiences aren’t much bigger. If they don’t come up with some rent money soon, they’re going to be thrown out. Time for dramatic action. “There’s only one thing that sells tickets these days” argues Georgie the Chairwoman. “Sex!”  But how will the locals react to the promise of a sizzling sex comedy? All is revealed in this hilarious play and thus begins the chaotic build-up to an evening of extraordinary home-grown drama – an evening the locals would never forget!
(Running time approx 30 minutes)

Last Panto in Little Grimley (by David Tristram)
Sequel to Last Tango in Little Grimley, Last Panto in Little Grimley features the same incompetent characters. The society members tackle the Christmas Pantomime with predictable riotous results. It’s Dick Whittington…but not as you know it!
(Running time approx 45 minutes)
