Having delighted audiences across the globe for the past decade, the Rolls Royce of Flanders and Swann shows returns!

Join multi award-winning comedian Tim FitzHigham and BBC Radio 4 musical maestro Duncan Walsh Atkins* as they starch their beards and trim their dinner jackets, ready to bring you the wit and wordplay of those ingenious comedy songsmiths, Michael Flanders and Donald Swann.

Lifelong fans and the uninitiated alike will delight to see the boys breathe new life into the much-loved words and music of F&S, including all the classics, The Hippopotamus (Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud), The Gnu, The Gas Man Cometh and many more – plus a few hidden gems along the way!

So join Duncan, Tim and the Hippo for the most sublime Flanders and Swann show since… well, since Flanders and Swann themselves!

*At some performances Jordan Clarke will appear in place of Duncan Walsh Atkins
