An 'ultimate' Moulin Rouge experience and stand-up from a BBC antiques expert are some of the one-off shows coming to Epsom's Playhouse in the coming weeks.

Tomorrow, the BBC's David Harper will visit the theatre for his first ever stand up theatre show.

Harper, a broadcast historian known for his brightly coloured trousers and appearances on the Antiques Roadshow and Bargain Hunt, is bringing a night of story-telling hilarity to the town.

A preview of the show described his stand up as "improvised story-telling entertainment" that would dive into a career of frequently farcical scrapes and adventures.

"Often involving the audience, he shares tales of embarrassing moments, funny celebrities, run-ins with the police, big antiques profits , bigger losses, strange historical journeys through time, behind the scenes TV gossip and unexpected world records," promo for the show reads.

Meanwhile on March 27, the 'Come What May' show hopes to deliver what's billed as the "ultimate" Moulin Rouge experience.

"Travel back in time as the children of the revolution take you on a thrilling non-stop journey into the sexy, disreputable and glamorous underworld of Paris," a spokesperson for the show said.

Come What May will also feature hits from a plethora of other musicals including The Greatest Showman.

The show is being promoted by Sweeny Entertainments, whose Co-Founder Julia Sweeny described what the Playhouse audience could expect:

"This is our most exciting new production for 2020. The songs of Moulin Rouge are unforgettable…a spectacular combination of classic songs brought to life under the glitz and glamour of the Moulin Rouge."

David Harper's Unexpected Tales visits the Epsom Playhouse on Wednesday (February 26) from 7.30pm.

Come What May arrives for one night only at the Playhouse on Friday, March 27 at 7.30pm (Tickets £29.50).
