SISTER MARY'S BIG SUNDAY SHOW
Each month our favourite nun presents a selection of artists and treats you all to the mellifluous tones and high brow wit that comes from Sister Mary herself.
We’re harking back to the good old nights at the London Palladium. We may not have Tommy Trinder, The Tiller Girls or a revolving stage, but we do hope that you will join us for some good old fashioned entertainment.

SUNDAY JULY 17TH, 5PM
Silky, John Danbury, Jo Wickham
Silky’s fourth ever stand-up gig was the televised 1995 BBC New Comedy Awards Final. This is not typical in comedy but Silky is no typical comedian.
For two decades, he’s been charming audiences with his Liverpudlian lilt and unrivalled wordsmithery. Sharing the stage with his trusty guitar, he can conjure up a sonorous stunner on the spot and pick through previously played pieces with such a natural dexterity it’s a wonder he’s not simply a professional musician. His improvisational skills and natural sense of joy are addictive, making him hugely popular with comedy fans and fellow comedians alike.
Massively engaging stand-up whose instinctive rapport with audiences makes him welcome wherever he goes. - Guardian Guide
For over 20 years John Danbury has been performing Magic. Having started life as a Musical Theatre Actor, John is the crooning conjuror, the singing sorcerer who has performed across the world.
