HE has just turned 50, his kids have left home, and his cat just died - and that’s just the start.

In Suggs: My Life Story, on Thursday, April 24 at Redditch's Palace Theatre, the Madness frontman takes to the stage in a hilarious, yet moving, one man tour de force playing to rave reviews.

The death of Suggs' beloved cat on his 50th birthday triggers a personal quest to discover what happened to the father he never knew.

Stunned by what he learns Suggs is taken back to his childhood on the tough streets of 1970s Soho and his first appearance on Top Of The Pops at the age of eighteen.

Is it a play? Is it stand-up comedy? Is it Music Hall? Whatever it is hold on to your seats as Suggs goes on to stumble and plummet through the trap door of failure before trampolining back to catch the passing trapeze of show business success.

Tickets are available in person or at the box office on 01527 65203 priced £26.75 (inclusive of booking fee 75p per seat up to a maximum £3).
