Andy Eastwood & Band
Andy’s act is an upbeat blend of dazzling instrumental artistry, foot-tapping songs and bright and breezy humour.
Born in Northern England to a musical family, Andy began performing at an early age, studying classical violin and piano. But he also developed a passion for jazz and vintage popular music, and having taught himself ukulele he made history at Oxford University as the only musician ever to give his degree recital on the instrument! He is now considered one of the world’s foremost ukulele players and is proud to have contributed to its continuing popularity.
The Candy Girls
Let Annie Daisy, Lady Jane and Lizzie Lou serve you up a taste of a bygone era and bring instant ‘40s and ‘50s vintageglamour to your event or party.
The Singing Usherettes will get your evening started in style, weaving through the audience singing in beautiful three-part harmony, distributing sweets (or your own personalised merchandise) as they go, before performing a rip-roaring set full of classic hits and modern songs that have been given a retro makeover.

Steve Barclay - Comdey Act
DANNY LA RUE knew a thing or two about show business, and STEVE BARCLAY spent many years working alongside the legendary star. Steve's personal experiences of teaming up with Danny -and a host of other top-line performers - has seen him hone his craft in comedy, cabaret and variety and as a corporate and cruise-liner entertainer. Steve Barclay worked with the legendary star for many years as Danny’s supporting comedian on his many summer seasons and UK tours working in Danny’s long running show Danny’s Dazzling Music Hall Show, The Good Old Day’s and ‘Four for the road’. Whilst Steve was working with Danny he made his first appearance at the Leeds City Varieties home of the famous ‘Good Old Days’.
Since then of course Steve has been a regular feature at the venue paying tribute to MAX MILLER, GEORGE FORMBY, KEN DODD and TWO TON TESSIE O’SHEA, working with Ted Rodgers, Jimmy Cricket, Ray Allen, and as many a music hall chairman has said ’ a melange of Music Hall and Variety favourites’
