Once called Sheffield’s finest singer-songwriter by a national newspaper, John Shuttleworth is at the Plowright Theatre in Scunthorpe next year.

Following appearances on Celebrity Antiques Roadshow and the second series of Radio 4’s John Shuttleworth’s Lounge Music, a recent health has made John focus on his mortality, and the many things he needs to do before the inevitable move into a hospice.

Can sole agent Ken Worthington pull out the stops and make John a star before his retirement?

As befits a man living on borrowed time – John considers life’s major issues including the rise in popularity of hi-viz protective wear, the suitability of the plastic lid on takeaway coffee cups, and the excitement he felt when sucking his first mint.

He is at the Plowright on February 26 and tickets are £16.

Tickets for all shows are available on 0844 8542776 or www.plowrighttheatre.com
