Josef Locke- A Grand Adventure

The Playhouse brings back to a larger stage the life of Josef Locke in the return of this unique piece of music theatre exploring his life, music and legacy.

Known as The Singing Bobby, Locke established himself as a star of Britain and Ireland's variety halls, becoming one of the most popular (and highly paid) singers of the 1940's and 50's.

After last year's sell out success of this heartwarming and uplifting show in 2014, esteemed singer Karl McGuckin will again join local musicians for an affectionate look at Locke's life, music ... and his tax affairs.

"An absolutely wonderful show... a show you just have to go to" BBC Radio Ulster
