WHETHER you’re standing or sitting, ’80s icon Adam Ant is sure to deliver when he brings his explosive live show to the Alban Arena next week.

Joined by The Good, The Mad and The Lovely Posse, Adam will be featuring songs from his new album Adam Ant Is The Blueblack Hussar In Marrying The Gunner’s Daughter as well as his classic hits, Antmusic, Dog Eat Dog, Goody Two Shoes, Prince Charming, Kings Of The Wild Frontier, and the Ivor Novello award-winning Stand And Deliver.

After Adam was presented with the Q Music Icon Award in 2008, he followed up with a series of low key, spontaneous gigs which led him to select a new band and perform several sell-out shows in London.

Tickets are £28.50 for seated, and £25 standing.

Get ready for a party as the UK’s most successful touring rock’n’roll production, the legendary That’ll Be The Day, returns with a brand new 2012 Christmas Show on November 25 at 7.30pm.

Now it its 26th year, That’ll Be The Day has more than stood the test of time and changes every year, so even if you are one of the four million people who have seen the show in the past you probably haven’t seen this brand new production! Join Trevor and the gang as they celebrate by bringing back the good times with all your favourite Christmas classics and hilarious comedy routines.

Tickets cost £23 and £21.

Stand-up comedian and novelist Mark Watson will be pondering things large and small when he comes to the Arena on November 24 at 7.30pm.

Mark Watson has been a victim of identity theft. Someone successfully posed as him and took all his money. This event made him think about the power of the internet, the nature of identity, the way to stop crime forever and live in a better world, along with some other smaller matters. He has now finished thinking about these things and is ready to take to the stage to present his findings. This new show is laced with a barrage of new jokes, stories, observations and anecdotes that will also have you wondering, questioning and laughing out loud.

Be warned as the show may contain optional audience interaction, games, improvisation and unaggressive banter. Tickets cost £15.

The classic rites of passage story Private Peaceful (12) revisits the trenches of the Great War at the Arena on Wednesday November 28 with screenings at 1.30pm and 7.30pm.

Written by St Albans-born Michael Morpurgo, author of War Horse, Private Peaceful is set in the fields of Devon and the WWI battlefields of Flanders. It tells the tale of two brothers and the exuberance and pain of their teenage love for the same girl, the pressures of their feudal family life, the horrors and folly of war and the ultimate price of courage and cowardice.

Tickets for films matinees are £5 and for evenings are £7 or £5 for concessions.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.
