Vocalist Greg Webb has joined the line-up of members Phil Aldridge, Keith Atack, Al Vosper, Darin Murphy and Garreth Hicklin to perform such classics as Hotel California, Take It Easy, Lyin’ Eyes, Life in the Fast Lane, Take it to the Limit, Tequila Sunrise, Desperado and New Kid in Town.

The performance begins at 7.30pm and tickets are £24.50 and £22.50.

Directed by and starring George Clooney, it also features Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman and Hugh Bonneville in the story of the greatest treasure hunt in history.

An unlikely WWII platoon are sent in to Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and return them to their rightful owners. How could these men, all museum directors, curators and art historians more familiar with Michelangelo than the M1 Carbine, possibly hope to succeed?

Tickets are £7 or £5 for concessions.
