The Singular Exploits of Sherlock Holmes, Palace Theatre, Paignton, Thursday 1st of February
Acclaimed actor Jonathan Goodwin plays the great sleuth in The Singular Exploits of Sherlock Holmes. The show features the great detective recounting highlights of his crime-busting career, his life and times, the adversaries he has faced and mysteries he has solved.
Jonathan Pie: Work in Progress, Exeter Corn Exchange, Thursday 9th of February
Jonathan Pie is returning to the stage in 2018 with a brand new live show following a sell out tour ending at The London Palladium, a show that was described as “electrifying” CHORTLE, “Blistering” Evening standard and ‘desperately misjudged’ The Times.
Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra – Monumental Brahms, Exeter Great Hall, Thursday 1st of February
An extraordinary melding of musical heritage and progressive outlook made Brahms an overwhelming presence in the latter half of the 19th century, but the musical genesis did not come easily. The monumental First Piano Concerto occupied Brahms for over five years. After beginning a two-piano sonata in 1854, he soon realised that the musical material required orchestral treatment and recast it as the first movement. See the genius of Brahms come before you with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
Valentine’s Dinner at Wear Park Restaurant, Exeter Golf & Country Club, Valentine’s Day
Celebrate the most romantic day of the year with a decadent four-course dinner in our elegant Wear Park Restaurant, with a glass of Prosecco on arrival to get you in the mood. There are some fabulous Valentine’s Spa Offers available in Wear Park Spa, perfect to treat your loved one to some R & R; ‘romance’ and ‘relaxation’.
