8 Minutes

Alexander Whitley Dance Company returns to The Point with a brand new show. Featuring a unique fusion of dance, film and music, 8 minutes takes audiences on a journey through the universe. Made in collaboration with scientists from STFC RAL Space, the production also features an installation of high-definition imagery from BAFTA award-winning visual artist Tal Rosner and a specially created score by the electroacoustic music innovator Daniel Wohl.

Enter a striking and immersive environment that ignites the imagination and illuminates our relationship with the star that gives us life.

• When: March 14

• Where: The Point, Leigh Road, Eastleigh, SO50 9DE, 02380 652333, thepointeastleigh.co.uk

Comedy Superstar

Having just bounced through all the arenas in the land, comedian John Bishop is now loading up the trucks for more fun on the road as he heads for Southampton. Winging It sees John back on stage for his fifth UK tour. Not only is this brand new show his biggest yet, it is also the best and funniest one to date, performed in his own inimitable style. Don’t miss his return to stand-up comedy!

• When: March 19

• Where: Mayflower Theatre, 22-26 Commercial Road, Southampton, SO15 1GE, 02380 711811

The Making of the Queen

We can hardly imagine a Britain without Elizabeth II on the throne. It seems to be the job she was born for. And yet for much of her early life the young princess did not know the role that her future would hold. She was our accidental Queen. Professor Kate Williams reveals how the 25-year-old young queen carved out a lasting role for herself amid the changes of the 20th century.

• When: March 8

• Where: The Spring Arts & Heritage, 56 East Street, Havant, PO9 1BS, 02392 472700, thespring.co.uk

Growing Pains

Immerse yourself in the medium of spoken word with one of the most edgy and vital voices on the scene. Combining quick-witted lyricism with original songs, this critically-acclaimed unflinching drama from Tom Gill not only bends genres, but takes the audience on a poetic journey from heartache to redemption, against the backdrop of Ladbrokes, broke lads, and sh*t dads. It is a must for comedy and music fans who are looking to try something different!
