If you are planning a great night out this Autumn, Warwick Arts Centre has the right programme for you, filled with top name comedians, international musicians and shows for the whole family.
We begin with internationally acclaimed dance company Motionhouse presenting Charge, which premieres at Warwick Arts Centre on Wed 4 Oct and runs until Sat 7 Oct. The multi-media show uses digital projections, dance and acrobatics to create a world on stage where dancers and images interact seamlessly, bringing to life stories of energy in the human body.
Our comedy programme starts with Russell Brand, who returns with his sell-out show Re:Birth on Wed 4 Oct, while Simon Amstell will stop here on Sat 7 Oct with his fifth stand up tour, What Is This?. They join an incredible line-up which includes top names such as Greg Davies (Thu 5 Oct & Sun 26 Nov), Nina Conti (Tue 31 Oct) and Phill Jupitus (Sun 5 Nov).
