Musical fans will be in for a treat with the announcement of several big shows coming soon to the Waterside Theatre in Aylesbury.

If you’re looking for something a little more scary than The Woman in Black will offer the perfect chill in the air for the build-up to the Christmas season, running from November 29 to December 3.

There will also be live music from British reggae and pop band UB40, singer Jane McDonald of The Cruise fame, and US star Jimmy Osmond will be celebrating the music of legendary crooner Andy Williams with his Moon River and Me show.
