Spring is just around the corner, as are a whole host of events and experiences to enjoy at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre, both in the main auditorium and the Norman Bragg Studio.

The luck of the Irish is with Aylesbury this month and celebrations of Irish culture aren’t just for St Patrick’s Day. There’s Spirit of the Dance (Thu 2 Mar) with an explosive fusion of heart-pounding Irish music with dance styles from around the world; one of the biggest names in the Irish music scene Nathan Carter (Sun 12 Mar); and a real craic in store with Seven Drunken Nights – The Story of The Dubliners (Sun 19 Mar).
