What’s On at The Old Theatre Royal:




Nick Harper – Tempus Fugitive

Friday 29th March, 2024

Doors open 7pm, curtain up at 8pm

  • tickets – £16 (£14 concs)

Acclaimed guitarist-singer-songwriter Nick Harper plays from his latest album ‘Tempus Fugitive’ and extensive back catalogue.

This is not a normal “one man and guitar” show. In a new, uniquely styled, acoustically driven album and live show, Nick explores the past, present and future in his own singular way.

Expect everything from the emotional to the political, from witty to virtuosic; the singular to the universal.

Greg Chapman’s – The Non-Psychic ‘Psychic’ Show

Saturday 13th April 2024

  • Early bird tickets (before 31st October 2023) – £10.00
  • General admission – £12.00

‘Psychic’ performances are everywhere these days – with people who claim the ability to communicate with the dead performing everywhere from theatres, to home visits, and on television.

What, however, for those who are interested in the idea of these ‘psychic’ shows, but are skeptics? Or would like to see how much ‘psychic’ phenomena can easily be faked?

That is why magician, escapologist and comedy performer Greg Chapman created his ‘The Non-Psychic ‘Psychic’ Show’, and is very excited to be coming to The Old Theatre Royal, Bath, with the show!

Using the full range of magic, escapology, mentalism and other performance skills, he takes the audience through a ninety-minute exploration of fraudulent mediums, from the Victorian Seances to modern psychic readings, but all clearly presented as trickery – and without any attempt or illusion of talking to people’s “dead relatives’”.

This show is fun and thought-provoking. Although the show takes no stand on whether it is actually possible to communicate with the dead, it shows how the appearance of such communications can be made through trickery, in a way that is entertaining, interesting, and at times downright funny!
