The Big Variety Night at the Gym

Honiton Gymnastics Centre, Heath Retail Park, Heathpark Way, Honiton, EX14 1BB
Empty red seats in a theatre


Join us for an incredible night of entertainment at Honiton Gymnastics Club on Saturday 27 August, with some of the hottest acts on the UK variety circuit.

*Gareth Oliver - Our compere for the evening,  Gareth is one of the most sought-after comedy ventriloquists in the world today 
*Richard and Adam - Classical-crossover/pop-opera duo (third in the final of Britain's Got Talent), whose album was NUMBER 1 in the UK charts
*Jacob Reddy - Emerging indie-pop singer-songwriter, performing a set of catchy singles, instantly-loveable tunes and a selection of new songs
*Jack Glanville - sharply-observed jokes and side-splitting songs from one of the top comedians on the UK circuit.

How to best describe our compère for the evening, Gareth Oliver? If it were possible for Billy Connolly and Russell Brand to have a boy together, and that boy could talk without moving his mouth, when that boy became a 41-year-old-man he'd bear an uncanny resemblance to Gareth Oliver.  Gareth is one of the most popular comedy ventriloquists in the world today (and if you don’t believe us, just ask the fella sitting on his hand).

Treat your ears to a vocal feast, as 'pop opera' royalty (and Britain's Got Talent finalists) Richard and Adam power out breathtaking hits, including songs from their UK number one album. You're guaranteed a powerful and emotional performance from the Welsh brothers, who are recognised as two of the greatest opera-singing vocalists in the UK.

The music will continue flowing throughout the night, with powerful indie-pop tunes courtesy of Jacob Reddy. This is Jacob's second performance at Honiton Gymnastics Club, and since his last appearance he has released five singles, completed a 51-city charity busking tour of the UK, been the support act for his idols The Lottery Winners on tour and penned climate-change anthem 'The World is Ours' for SteamAid Live.

The laughs will keep rolling throughout the night, with Jack Glanville - one of the top comedians on the UK circuit. Hilarious and energetic, Jack is taking a night off from entertaining audiences around the world to treat us to a show of sharply-observed jokes. Winner of a UK Best Male Entertainer award, his Cornish wit will have you in stitches.

Please note that much of the comedy content will be 'adult' in nature - so under 16s are permitted only with parental consent.

The event is a club social event and fundraiser, so we'll be hosting a pre-show get-together outside the venue at 5.30pm, with food available to purchase and a licensed bar organised by our Supporters' Association (which will run throughout the night in the gymnastics centre).

Don't leave it late to book tickets, as we expect them to sell-out quickly! Once they are gone...they are gone! We do have the option of adding two more rows of ground floor seating, which means tiered seating could go be slightly further back.

17:30: Pre-event drinks, food and social gathering outside the gymnastics centre
18:30: Seating opens
19:00: Show starts
22:00: Show finishes (bar remains open)
23:00: Bar and gymnastics centre close

PLEASE NOTE: All ticket prices are the same, but visibility may not be as clear from the back of the ground-floor seats.
