It’s a mega March for Wrexham’s William Aston Hall which has a jam-packed programme of events for audiences.

If a chuckle is what you are after there is lots of comedy coming up.

Celebrating 40 years on the road, Britain’s raciest and sassiest cabaret trio are bringing Fascinating Aïda (7 Mar) to Wrexham.

Uniquely charming, with diamond-sharp satire, filthy, hilarious, belligerent, political, poignant and outrageous, this indomitable trio are still the mistresses of their craft.

This new show will feature much-loved favourites and new songs.

Ricky Tomlinson will return to the stage in Irish Annie’s (11 Mar) musical play.

Irish Annie’s is a celebration of Irish culture, from the music to the comedy, featuring the well-known live six-piece band The Shenanigans.

Meet landlady Annie and her regular madcap customers for a fun night out of comedy, music and mayhem, featuring original tracks written for the show by Asa Murphy, along with your all-time favourite Irish tunes including Galway Shawl, Tell Me Ma, Dirty Old Town, Whiskey In The Jar, Danny Boy and many more.

The evening promises to have the audience laughing, singing, and dancing the night away.

Ricky Tomlinson said: “This show is a delight to be part of, with a wonderful cast of characters and beautiful original and classic Irish music.

“Come and enjoy the show and sing-along with the song sheets provided. I guarantee you will have a ball.”

Other music events taking place include Fairport Convention (5 Mar). They have been entertaining music lovers for over half a century, having formed in 1967.

This year’s Winter Tour will present a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and some surprises from albums old and new.

The band features founding member Simon Nicol on guitar and vocals, Dave Pegg on bass guitar, Ric Sanders on violin, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals.

Fairport will be joined on stage by former member Dave Mattacks on Drums.

The Story of Guitar Heroes (8 Mar) has garnered critical acclaim both at home and abroad for its incredible homage to some of the most influential and iconic guitarists from the past 50 years of popular music.

Featuring talented world-class musicians and state-of-the-art video projection, the show journeys through five decades, from 1950s Rock & Roll through to the most creative and inspirational guitar heroes of the modern era.

One of Shakespeare’s greatest plays is also one of Verdi’s greatest operas. Verdi’s magnificent score, with its sweeping melodies and intricate harmonies, propels the psychologically thrilling narrative, whilst Act 4 introduces a modern twist with the haunting chorus of refugees.

Sung in English, accompanied by Ensemble Cymru and with a large cast, supplemented by community choruses, Mid Wales Opera presents its first-ever production of Verdi’s Macbeth as the culmination of its Shakespeare Season.

The first national tour of the greatest musicals of all time performed by a sensational live band and character singers, giant screen with sing along lyrics Sing The Musicals (30 Mar) is a must see for any musical lover.
