Stratford Editorial 3rd Jul, 2015 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

QI star Alan Davies will be among those dropping in at Leamington’s Spa Centre in the autumn.

The comedian will be hitting the road again with Little Victories – his highly personal show covering sexual frustration, family life and Alzheimer’s – after a successful year of sell-out dates in 2014.

Known to millions as the resident dunderhead on QI and also the charming but reticent crime solver Jonathan Creek, Davies’ won widespread critical acclaim when he returned to stand up with Little Victories as his virtuosic story-telling and whip-smart funny bones combined.

Other well know comedy faces arriving in the autumn include Ed Byrne with his new show Outside, and professional grumpy old woman Jenny Éclair will be giving a guide to being a middle aged woman without going insane.

Leamington Comedy Festival also returns with Tony Jameson, Tiernan Douieb, Henning Wehn, Mark Watson and many more on the laughter bill.

Music fans can enjoy a diverse line-up which includes Eurovision winners Bucks Fizz on their Paradise Regained Tour; classical tenor Russell ‘The Voice’ Watson; and the legendary sound of Pink Floyd from tribute band The Floyd Effect.

Theatre-wise, Samuel Beckett’s 60 year old masterpiece Waiting for Godot will be performed, together with the heart-warming classic It’s A Wonderful Life, while and London Classic Theatre present Alan Ayckbourn comedy Absent Friends.

There’s also plenty for youngsters. Karen the Koala tells her story to children and families in How the Koala Learnt to Hug.

Families can witness magic, music and mirth and cheer for their favourite jousting knight in Oddsocks: The Legend of King Arthur; and Jack will be hoping he made a good trade on his cow in Jack and the Beanstalk which is this year’s pantomime.
