Jazz, cabaret or a comedic adventure; there’s sure to be something to suit everybody’s tastes on Friday February 22 at the Key Theatre.

Described by The List as ‘a toe-tapping and uproarious cabaret affair’, you’ll struggle to find a better night out in Peterborough when the Horne Section perform. Comedian Alex Horne, nominated for a Perrier Newcomer Award in 2003, formed his cabaret group through gathering together the UK’s finest musicians and throwing them on stage with the world’s most exciting comics.

Previous comics who’ve appeared on stage with the jazz group include Tim Minchin, Jimmy Carr, and Al Murray.

In 2012 the group guest presented an episode of Never Mind the Buzzcocks, and in 2011 they were commissioned to make a one-off special for BBC Radio 4, the success of which led to a full series, broadcast in spring 2012.

On the same evening you’re also invited on a ‘madcap odyssey of epic proportions’ (Guardian Series) with ALASKA – a story following one man who goes to the frozen state to find adventure and freedom. Bear Grylls, Ray Mears, and a whole host of forest wildlife, film, firelight soon appear as -40 temperatures and a severe lack of any practical skills whatsoever plunge him into a world of extreme survival.

Whether it’s comedy cabaret or comedic escapades, this Friday at the Key you’ll see something never seen in Peterborough before!
