Best known as one of the stars of The Fast Show and Bellamy’s People, with Paul Whitehouse, Simon Day takes to the road this autumn with his new show Simon Day and Friends.
On a tour that runs from September to November and stretches across the length and breadth of England and Scotland, Day is accompanied by a rich array of some of his most loved and instantly recognisable characters, including blazer wearing music hall legend Tommy Cockles, the acclaimed Yorkshire poet Geoffrey Allerton, unlikely eco warrior Dave Angel and reformed violent criminal Tony Beckton.
TOMMY COCKLES says – “Great to be travelling around the country again, in the old days I was in a double act with David Niven. We could only afford a single room and he would hang off my shoulders so the landlady would only hear one pair of feet!!”
DAVE ANGEL says – “I will be spreading autumnal vibes throughout the land, eeeee.”
TONY BECKTON says – “The government have allowed me to take my tag off for the shows!”
GEOFFERY ALLERTON says – “I will be travelling by bicycle as the trains are too expensive and the smell of different crisp flavours causes migraines”
Simon Day was born in 1962 and grew up in Blackheath, London. He discovered a talent for stand-up in his twenties, winning a Time Out Best New Act award in 1991. After working with Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer, he starred in BBC TV’s classic The Fast Show. His memoir, Comedy and Error, was published in 2012 and he has had two series of The Simon Day Show on Radio 4. Day starred in the sitcom The Function Room on Channel 4. With film credits including Shakespeare In Love, Run Fatboy Run and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and extensive TV credits including Heartbeat, Red Dwarf, Jonathan Creek, Holby City, Skins and of course, The Fast Show, Simon is a legend of the small screen.

Labelled as an “indie pop wunderkind” by Avro Telvanni, Cambridge-born 22-year-old Ellie Dixon creates self-produced, punchy bops with groove and a sense of humour. Producing from her bedroom studio, she has created her own brand of self-aware alt-pop described by She Wolf as “pop music with brains”. Dixon fuses her bespoke blend of indie pop, rap, jazz and R&B as she expresses life lessons and frustrations through witty lyrics and earworm melodies. Influences include; Easy Life, Still Woozy, BENEE and Anderson .Paak while oozing with her own personality, creativity and a love for the unconventional. Both her musical versatility and self-made, joyous visuals have been catching the ears and eyes of many, landing her Spotify editorial play-listing, radio play on BBC Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music, and backing from distributor CD Baby.
Ellie released her single ‘Space Out!’ in July 2020 which received overwhelming support and has now reached 300k Spotify streams. She then released her single ‘Sucker’ in February 2021 which has already had airplay from BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music and featured on Spotify’s ‘New Pop UK’ playlist. This is her second single in the run-up to an EP dropping this summer.
Ellie launches into her UK Tour after various festival appearances throughout the summer. This is one not to be missed – check out Ellie Dixon on Instagram or TikTok @elliedixonmusic to get prepared.
Support comes from local indie/alt duo Lula & Gene.

St James will host two special concerts to celebrate the life of musician Andy Coleman who died in June. Andy was a popular and formidable player who crossed many genres of music and performed in numerous bands, orchestras and ensembles over four decades.
In an effort to celebrate his incredible contribution to music in the island and to represent some of the groups Andy was involved in, the decision has been made to split the concerts into two themes.
This first concert takes place on Saturday 1st October and will focus on Andy’s love of jazz and include several ensembles and musicians that Andy performed with, including the Guernsey Jazz Orchestra, The Glenn Miller Sound, the Schubert Octet, Tutti Trombones and others.
The second night will feature Andy’s love of rock, soul and ska and will take place on the following Saturday, 8th October, and will include three of the bands Andy was most prominently involved in, The Risk, King Rat and The Soul Cats, and Sons of the Desert. Tickets available here.
All the proceeds will go towards helping three local music-based charities: Sound Guernsey, Guernsey Mind and The Guernsey Choral & Orchestral Society.
