Saturday 31st January - An Evening with World Snooker & Jungle Legend Steve Davis
This will be our 4th evening of entertainment with a sporting theme, we offer a relaxed, smart and casual dress code. An informal night of great stories, laughter, comedy, a few pints with family, friends, colleaguesand hopefully raise a little money for the Arena's Junior Snooker Academy.
Headlining the night is World Snooker legend Steve Davis, the man who missed the crucial black against Dennis Taylor in a snooker World Championship final. To be fair to Steve, he has won the odd match. Davis scored the first televised 147 maximum break; his exertions winning him the much coveted prize of a Lada Estate.
Steve won his first major trophy in 1980, starting a decade of unparalleled success. Six World Championships were the undoubted highlight of his reign at the top. His dominance was recognised with the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award. Steve has won a total of 71 major titles, none more surprising than the 1997 Masters victory, coming at a time when he was written off as past his prime.
Off the table, Steve has carved out a successful media career, owing in no small part to his 'interesting' persona. Steve has used his reputation to become a multi-talented sports pundit, radio presenter, commercials star, quiz show guest and published author. After dinner, Steve uses his bone dry sense of humour to relive the highs and lows of a varied career.
Aside from some notable success as a pool player, Steve has a keen interest in poker and chess. Steve has featured at televised poker tournaments and has even joined the online community. However, Steve claims that if he was to make a career from it, then he would probably be selling the Big Issue.
Compere for the evening & providing the comedy is Barry York. As compere for the evening Barry is at home, his clear and easy to understand voice makes him an ideal host, yet his wit and charm lend his style to more laid back events. Barry is one of the most versatile comedy entertainers on the circuit who works predominantly in the after dinner market where his clean, yet "cheeky" act, combined with his sharp wit are a match for all audiences, whether mixed, or all male. I'm sure we can all remember Barry from the Paul Merson night!!
Raffles/auctions & any other monies raised on the night will go towards the Arena's Junior Snooker Academy. Doors open 7pm for 7.45pm start, table nibbles will be available.
Tickets for the evening are only £15 and includes table nibbles.

Bank Holiday Sunday 24th May All Day Event - Welcome to the House of Fun
It's May Bank Holiday Sunday and it's certainly going to be a house of fun, we have got a treat for all you Madness, Ska, Mod, Scooterists, 2-Tone, Punk and New Wave enthusiasts.
Two top live bands for this all dayer, headlining the event are the professional outfit theone and only Complete Madness, Madness and Ska Tribute Band and supporting The Nutty Boys are Reasons To Be Cheerful with their Punk and New Wave show.
First let us bring you a little history on Complete Madness who were formed in 1994 out of a band called 'Beat The System' which itself was born in 1989 with original members Mark Keegan and Derek Wood who are still with Complete Madness today. Mark was always into the original Punk and Ska scene while Derek was more of an old School Rock person, so finding a happy medium of music was always difficult but in 1990 they decided to settle on the New Wave type of stuff featuring bands such as The Clash, Alarm, U2, Nick Lowe, Big Country and Flock of Seagulls to name a few.
In 1992 they added a few Madness songs to their set such as Night boat to Cairo and Baggy Trousers. The band started doing showcases and signed to an agency and with their growing popularity began to add more Madness and Specials songs to the set.
In 1994 with the ever changing set becoming more Ska influenced they decided to change the name of the band from 'Beat The System' to 'Complete Madness'. As well a name change they also added Saxophonist and Pianist player Chris Halford to the line up and then in 1998 Keyboard/Organist Chris Collier also joined the band. It was at this point the band really began to become the band that it is today.
It was around this time the bands popularity really began to grow and they made the decision to quit their day jobs and go professional.
Complete Madness have performed in venues around the world including Army Bases both home and abroad, Butlins family and adult breaks, ferries and small cruises, Festivals: including the Cork Jazz Festival between 1996 and 2005 winning rave reviews and many other interesting and varying venues around the world.
Complete Madness also perform Theatre shows and have played over 60 theatres over the last few years (A big thanks to Sweeney Entertainments).
Complete Madness are now in their 20th year and each year go from strength to strength, adding new songs to the set such as a Ska version of Bruno Mars' 'The Lazy Song' and Paulo Nutini's ska hit '10 by 10'
Now moving on to Reasons To Be Cheeful, what can we say, they will be playing the best Punk and New Wave music from 1977 to 1982, featuring The Clash, The Jam, Ian Dury and The Blockheads, The Sex Pistols, Blondie, Elvis Costello and more.
Dangerous Dave, Planet Mark, Baby Elephant and Cuthbert Pearson combine their tremendous experience and talent to deliver superb renditions of classic favourites such as 'Rhythm Stick', 'A Town Called Malice','Oliver's Army', 'I Fought The Law' and many many other fantastic hits from this era. Do not miss these guys. You will love them!
As always the Phoenix Roadshow DJs will be supporting the live bands, food will be avilable on-site, we have a very large on-site free car-park, all tickets only £8 (no food included).

It wouldn't be a party night without top class live entertainment and you certainly won't be disappointed with this one.

Some tribute artists look like their idol, some sound like their idol, Paul Bacon as Elton John does both! Close your eyes and you won't believe your ears, open your eyes and you won't believe them either! You simply won't find a closer tribute to Sir Elton John.
A lifelong Elton John fan, Paul first started singing and performing Elton's songs whilst studying Performing Arts at University in the early 1980's. With an extraordinarily similar singing voice to Sir Elton's, Paul is able to draw on an amazing back catalogue of hits to produce a truly wonderful celebration of Elton's music. Paul's performances often feature some of Elton's actual clothes, bought from his 'Out the Closet' sales.
Thanks to their high standard of musicianship and professionalism, together with the irresistible songs of Elton John they have rapidly established themselves as the foremost Elton John tribute act in Europe. Ultimate Elton and The Rocket Band presents an uncannily accurate reproduction of the live shows of one of pop music's most successful and best-loved artists.
