Comedy headliner in national tour confirms Mansfield booking!

Mansfield Palace Theatre is incredibly pleased and proud to announce that it has secured a date in October as part of Lenny Henry's upcoming National Tour, Pop Life!

The show makes an exciting addition to the theatre's newly released Autumn / Winter seasons brochure. Tickets are now on sale for the performance in Mansfield on Tuesday 9 October at 7.30pm.

LENNY HENRY takes us on a hilarious joyride through his life in music. You'll discover what it was like:

  • Being born into a JAMAICAN household with so many pictures of Elvis on the wall "I thought he was a relative".
  • Hanging at the QUEEN MARY DISCO in the Midlands where Northern Soul dancers high kicked with such ferocity, "in one tune they could maim the entire room".
  • Sympathising with multi-millionaire singer ADELE's ex-boyfriend - who dumped her just before she hit the big time. "I bet he regrets THAT phone call".
  • HIP HOP'S obsession with women's bodies: "If that girl in the 50 cent video wants to be recognised she's got to walk in the party, bum first".

Lenny Henry: POP LIFE! is a joyous, funny, freaky show about just how music goes better with everything. Lenny plays the piano during this performance - you have been warned!
