Chris Packham is a celebrated naturalist, television presenter, conservationist and filmmaker, well-known for his work on the BBC's Spring, Autumn and Winterwatch series. In this talk, Chris travels to some of the world's wildlife hot spots and recounts tales from the frontline. Everyone is tempted by glamour, the big, the brash and the beautiful. But Chris likes to champion the underdog and push back at familiarity breeding contempt so for him humble everyday creatures are just as alluring. He likes to 'make something out of other people’s nothing' when it comes to photography and loves the challenge of finding beauty in ugly places. And when he does travel to some of the worlds wildlife hotspots he wants to see them in a new way, to put some art into his photos. But at the core of all his work is conservation so expect tales from the frontline and the full-frontal truth about how we get it wrong and get it right. Funny, inspiring, irreverent and packed with information it’s not a lecture, it’s a romp through the wild mind of Chris Packham. Tickets: £22, Concessions £20

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels based on the popular 1988 MGM film, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering 11 Tony Awards. Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together only to find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement: the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress Christine Colgate, wins and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end! From the company which brought you ‘My Fair Lady’ & ‘Oklahoma’. Wed 24th April: All seats £14 All other performances: £16, Concessions £15 (50p of every ticket goes to the Regent Centre Development Fund)

Jeremy Vine is one of the UK's most successful broadcasters. In more than thirty years at the BBC, he's presented Newsnight, Panorama, Crimewatch, Eggheads and Points of View — as well as his daily Jeremy Vine Show on BBC Radio 2, the UK's most listened-to radio news programme. He's been shot at in Croatia and had chewing gum placed on his chair in Zimbabwe (by one of Robert Mugabe's supporters). But increasingly he finds himself asking "What the hell is going on?" as information and misinformation get mixed together and the sheer volume of news that gets thrown at us all is mindblowing. Get ready to laugh and cry as Jeremy tries to make sense of a world that increasingly makes no sense at all — where, as he puts it, "my listeners have better stories than I do." Tickets: £17.50
