Musical comedy genius Bill Bailey is to perform in a one off show with Liverpool’s Philharmonic Orchestra on Monday 23rd November.

Following on from last year’s sell out shows at the Royal Albert Hall and the critically acclaimed version on BBC2, Bill Bailey’s surreal comic and musical imagination is let loose as he performs with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

Black Books star Bailey will be accompanied by Anne Dudley, one of the UK’s most celebrated composers and arrangers, in “Bill Bailey’s Remarkable Guide To The Orchestra.”

A classically trained musician, Bill has for many years covered all kinds of music in his comedy and this show takes the form of an irreverent guide to the instruments of the orchestra, plus 70s cop show music, news themes, Bill’s own songs, and some of Anne’s specially written new works.

In this unique show, Bill offers the insight to all things musical, from hearing about the trombone’s affection for Cockney music, to finding out what bassoon players are secretly obsessed with!

Don’t miss your chance to see this ‘blissfully funny’ show (The Times) which Stephen Fry described as ‘wonderfully enjoyable – like driving a Rolls-Royce off-road’.

Tickets will be released at 9.30am on Friday 18th September. Please call the box office on 0151 709 3789 or order online at

Ticket prices range from: £25, £40, £55, £60
