With a hugely entertaining and sometimes brilliantly unexpected selection of tunes from Tom Jones to Tom Waits and his famed impressions of the likes of Mick Jagger, Michael Caine and Steve Coogan, Rob will regale audiences with hilarious tales from his distant and recent past.
Vesta Tilley laid the foundation stone of what is now the Sunderland Empire on 29 September 1906 and took to the stage on 1 July 1907 to officially declare the theatre open. Masterminded by two of the contemporary heads of British theatre, Edward Moss and Osward Stoll, the Sunderland Empire Theatre has undergone many changes since it opened but remains the North East’s premier entertainment venue.
