An Evening with Anthony Joshua – The Lowry, Salford

Black boxer

Reviewer: Matt Forrest It would be fair to say that there is very little left for Anthony Joshua to achieve: at the tender of age of 27, he is an Olympic champion, has won gold at the 2012 games in London and is a previous British, Commonwealth and WBC International heavyweight champion. At present, he is the reigning and defending ...

Flamenco dancer (female)

Reviewer: Peter Jacobs With the support of British flamenco promoters Flamenco Edition, Ana Morales and David Coria – two of the most exciting and highly-regarded flamenco performers today – bring this brand new show from the heat of Seville to the barely holding-off May drizzle of Salford (and elsewhere in the UK for a short tour).

Life By The Throat – The Lowry, Salford

Woman in football top

Writer: Eve Steele Director: Ed Jones Reviewer: Jo Beggs Jamie is trouble. Before he turns ten he’s a liar and a thief. He roams around the Hulme Crescents like he owns the place.

Bridget Christie: Because You Demanded It – The Lowry, Salford

Reviewer: Lizz Clark Early on in her set, speeding off on a sideways train of thought, the award-winning comic starts to sashay and stride around the stage like an extra from a Ministry of Silly Walks sketch. Knees flailing and arms akimbo, she hams up an East End accent and strings lots of long words together without saying very much. ...

Tony Law – The Lowry – Salford

Tony Law hugging a tree

Reviewer: Matt Forrest If you’re looking for a string of gags or a set of one-liners you can pass off when you’re down the pub with your mates, then sadly Tony Law is not the man for you: during the 80minute set, not a single joke was told. However, what we are treated to is a journey into the mind ...
