Caro Emerald, Plymouth Pavilions, Sat 27 October
Such a cool image this one, isn’t it? Following 5 star reviews and sold out shows across the board, the gorgeous and stylish Caro Emerald is back with a brand new live UK tour for 2018. I’m yet to experience it, but apparently her live performance is not to be missed – according to The Daily Telegraph “Caro Emerald had everyone in the palm of her hand’’ and her “infectious sense of fun and vintage charm can be relied on to lift the spirits”. Shall we go?

George Egg: DIY Chef, The George Hotel, South Molton, Sat 27 October
Comedian George Egg (the ‘Anarchist Cook’) returns with a brand new show demonstrating more live cooking and lashings of comedy. In ‘GEORGE EGG: DIY CHEF’ a health scare sees George banned him from the family kitchen, but relocated to the garden shed his imagination and resourcefulness lead him to build an improvised kitchen there instead. Expect an evening of stand-up, live cooking and comedy lecture, while George prepares a breakfast, a lunch and a dinner using the most unconventional of methods. It’s funny, inspiring and absurd in equal measure.
