Celebrate the 70th anniversary of this timeless classic with us. Casablanca is a 1942 American romantic drama film directed by Michael Curtiz, starring Humphrey Bogart, Ingrid Bergman and Paul Henreid, and featuring Claude Rains, Conrad Veidt, Sydney Greenstreet, Peter Lorre and Dooley Wilson. Set during World War II, it focuses on a man torn between, in the words of one character, love and virtue. He must choose between his love for a woman and helping her and her Czech Resistance leader husband escape from the Vichy-controlled Moroccan city of Casablanca to continue his fight against the Nazis. During World War II, Europeans who were fleeing from the Germans, sought refuge in America. But to get there they would first have to go Casablanca and once they get there, they have to obtain exit visas which are not very easy to come by. Now the hottest spot in all of Casablanca is Rick's Cafe which is operated by Rick Blaine, an American expatriate, who for some reason can't return there, and he is also extremely cynical. Now it seems that two German couriers were killed and the documents they were carrying were taken. Now one of Rick's regulars, Ugarte entrusts to him some letters of transit, which he intends to sell but before he does he is arrested for killing the couriers. Captain Renault, the Chief of Police, who is neutral in his political views, informs Rick that Victor Laszlo, the European Resistance leader, is in Casablanca and will do anything to get an exit visa but Renault has been "told" by Major Strasser of the Gestapo, to keep Laszlo in Casablanca. Laszlo goes to Rick's to meet Ugarte, because he was the one Ugarte was going to sell the letters to. But since Ugarte was arrested he has to find another way. Accompanying him is Ilsa Lund, who knew Rick when he was in Paris, and when they meet some of Rick's old wounds reopen. It is obvious that Rick's stone heart was because of her leaving him. And when they learn that Rick has the letters, he refuses to give them to him, because "he doesn't stick his neck out for anyone".

Twenty one years after their debut self titled album and one and only UK tour, the tour de force that is Daphne's flight is set to return to the stage in 2017.

With a complete line-up of all five original members and a brand new studio album, this is the tour that fans have been waiting for since their first impromptu performance at Cambridge festival in 1995, when they took a packed club tent by storm and decided the time was right to join forces. Drawing on their collective wealth of talent and varied styles, each of them accomplished songwriters, musicians and renowned singers, it was the combination of all five voices, a powerhouse of harmonies, that left audiences breathless and brought them much critical acclaim.

As well as the many original songs they each brought to the group, they breathed new life into classic contemporary covers from The Beach Boys to The Beatles, Bill Withers to Randy Newman and anyone who saw Daphne's Flight live will tell you their version of E.C. Ball's 'Father Adieu' was the stuff of musical legend!

With as much energy and enthusiasm as they ever had, Daphne's are truly excited to be reuniting again and hope you will join them in the next leg of the flight for what promises to be a memorable year. Chocks away!

Barnsley based poet, storyteller and playwright Lee Pollard brings his smash hit, one man, comedy poetry and spoken word show "Hiding from Wobbly Bob and other Stories" to The Paramount Theatre. Lee has recently taken an enforced absence from presenting poetry after badly burning the inside of his ear with the filling from a meat pie. Now, having fully recovered, he is back with a show which has been described as "quite funny in places" by his wife, Tina. During the performance you will hear stories and poems about such things as: club trips, “special" shoes, Barnsley weddings, vol au vents and balaclavas. The show will also feature a rendition of a deeply moving and poignant tale of a lost childhood friendship entitled "Never Set Fire to Your Friends", a stark warning of the consequences of the inappropriate use of creosote and other flammable wood preservatives. Lee's stories are regularly featured on BBC Radio Sheffield and in a range of venues across Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire.

You'll meet languid poets, drooping, sighing maidens, and the manly dragoons who make for a hilarious evening's entertainment.
