Squire PAC Announce Their Performing Arts Lineup

Featuring comedian Scott Bennett and poet John Hegley, The Squire Performing Arts Centre boast an impressive lineup...

Nestled in the city centre, The Squire Performing Arts Centre is a creative space aiming to explore and inspire through the power of performance. 

Having just announced their latest lineup of shows, we can look forward to an array of performers including comedian Scott Bennett and poet John Hegley, alongside Rhubarb Theatre’s family friendly show Dustbin Doris.

Kicking off is Scott Bennett with his show Scott Bennett and Friends. Nominated twice at the Leicester Comedy Festival, Bennett has also appeared on BBC’s The News Quiz, The Now Show and The Likely Dads. He will be joined by fellow comedians Steve Royle and Matt Richardson for a night of laughter on Thursday 10 March. 

Second up is John Hegley, dubbed by the Independent as “comedy’s poet laureate.” The one man show, known for his poetry, comedy, and singing will be appearing with New and Selected Potatoes. Showcasing a series of comic poems on topics ranging from love and family to taxidermy and (ofcourse) potatoes, Hegley will be performing at Squire PAC on Saturday 26 March. 

Looking forward to May, Squire PAC will be showcasing a series of family shows, starting with the Rhubarb Theatre’s Dustbin Doris. Telling the story of a dustbin, a homeless lady, and an extraordinary amount of courage, this is great for a family day out on Saturday 14 May. 

Hoping to position Squire PAC as a pivotal location in the Nottingham arts scene, Anita Bush, Centre Manager of The Squire Performing Arts Space comments “We want the people of Nottingham, and further afield to know more about our space and what we do here. The Squire has been offering cultural opportunities here in  Nottingham since 2017, but we want to increase our profile and expand our audiences. We programme work that is relevant and pertinent to the times we live in

“Working in a community that is as diverse and culturally rich as Hyson Green, it is our ambition going forward, to seek out artists and their work that is both impactful and relevant, and tells a story and resonates with those living and working in our local neighbourhoods.
