TOP big band music, two much-loved television stars and an evening of clairvoyance are all in store for Lowestoft Marina Theatre patrons over the next week.

Tonight the venue will move to the sounds of big band music as Chris Dean's Syd Lawrence Orchestra play pieces from the artists including Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald.

The band has been named the Best Big Band in the Land for 11 consecutive years and their latest album Strictly Big Band has received many warm reviews.

On Sunday, John Challis and Sue Holderness will be giving the audience an insight into the lives of their characters Boycie and Marlene, of Only Fools and Horses fame.

Tony Stockwell brings an evening of clairvoyance to the theatre on Wednesday as he starts another busy month at the venue.

Other events to grace the stage at the beginning of March include two top family attractions.

On Sunday, March 7, children's favourite Noddy comes to town, together with his friends Mr Plod, Bumpy Dog and Big Ears.

All are invited to join Noddy and Tessie Bear's sing-a-long, dance-a-long party in Toy Town, apart from naughty goblins Sly and Gobbo, who Noddy must stay one step ahead of.

On Thursday, March 11 to Saturday, March 13, the Birmingham Stage Company return to perform Roald Dahl's classic George's Marvellous Medicine.

The brand new adaptation of the popular book has proved to be their most popular yet, even featuring on Blue Peter.

It is based on Roald Dahl's amazing story about a young boy who makes a marvellous new medicine to cure his grandmother of her terrifying temper. When his grandmother drinks his special new potion, the most incredible things start to happen.
