British singer-songwriter Tom McRae is one of the most respected songwriters in the world today, having released 6 critically acclaimed studio albums and three live recordings over the last 15 years, with a new album scheduled for release in August of 2017.
McRae’s eponymous debut album in 2000 was nominated for The Mercury Prize, a Q Magazine Award, and a Brit, and the subsequent albums and years of touring have cemented his reputation as much-loved, deeply committed artist.
McRae tours regularly and is in much demand as a writer for other artists, recently reprising his work with Marianne Faithfull on her latest album. McRae's smart, literate, heartfelt albums have won him a large and loyal audience, and whether solo, with his trio, or his spectacular Standing Band, McRae's shows are never less than spellbinding.
Poet Simon Armitage has called him "one of our greatest living songwriters".

Some people talk the talk but don’t walk the walk, one person that puts her money where her mouth is, is comedian Eleanor Conway. Her debut stand up show ‘Walk of Shame’, premiered at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival to critical acclaim and is currently on a huge nationwide UK tour.
Ferocious clubber and party girl Eleanor Conway has always been a woman of extremes; she partied around the world as a music journalist, ran off to Asia to work for The Triads, made hard-core porn and Tinder’d her way through most of London. Now sober from alcohol and substances she’s failing to find moderation and meaning. This critically acclaimed comedy debut is about sex, sobriety and the modern addict, and following a sell-out 30 date national tour it returns to Edinburgh Festival before coming to the Nottingham Arts Theatre.
Claude the contract cleaner is employed by the local theatre; she received a vision from God to write about Mary and Joseph prior to the birth of Jesus. Claude informs her fellow workers about her written play gaining an insight of how she sees her Saviour Jesus Christ; her fellow workers see a different side to Claude who takes them on a journey where they themselves also become part of the play. A musical play with town sellers, village gossiper seeking to marry the handsome bachelor Joseph the carpenter. Joy to the World includes a singing Herod obsessed with authority, a Paige scared of his own shadow, three wise men with no sense of directions along with Shepherds. This musical is a worship experience bringing to life the visions of a simple cleaner who writes from the book of Luke. Jesus Christ born to save, he is the Joy to the world.
