Warwick Arts Centre is launching into its 40th year with some ground-breaking live performances and big nights out.

The arts centres music programme continues to bring some of the biggest, brightest live artists to area.

And the comedy programme is as packed as ever with top names promising a great night out this spring.

Head of programme and audiences Matt Burman said “Our programme this spring showcases all that we do so well: I’m looking forward to big gigs from The Waterboys and Jose Gonzalez and Paul Weller, and to the beautiful sounds of King Creosote.

“I’ll be bringing my son to see shows about dinosaurs and pigeons and a whole load of shoes. I’m thrilled we’ve got Dara O’ Briain and Stewart Lee returning to us as well as shows from Josie Long and Mark Thomas that were the hits of last year’s Edinburgh Fringe.

“We’ve got a stunning exhibition of Russian photography, and musicians from across Europe playing great classical music to soothe your soul and dancers and actors performing radical contemporary work to inspire adventurous minds and bodies.

“Perhaps Warwick Arts Centre’s life really does begin at 40.”

Young theatre-goers will be spoilt for choice this season with no less than six new family theatre shows suitable for a range of ages.

Oily Cart returns with a multi-sensory journey for ages three to five in There was an Old Woman. Visit the battlefields of 1917 with The Muddy Choir, a story about growing up and the humanising power of music, suitable for ages 13 and over.
