    He’s back! It’s been a busy few years for Jason since his last smash-hit stand up show but fans of his Absolute Radio show will know this nationally acclaimed comedian hasn’t changed a bit. 

     'Muddle Class' promises to feature a wealth of new material about Jason growing up ‘working class’ then finding, over the years, that part of him has become ‘middle class’ - causing much confusion! Delivered with Jason’s amiable charm and captivating wit, this is a show not to be missed.

    Jason said: “Somebody said to me on my Facebook fan page, 'it's been ages since you've toured'. I thought 'no way, it was last year wasn't it? Anyway, long story short, they were right, it was years ago! I just got fooled cos I've been on tour doing musicals and the last tour is repeated on Dave ja Vu 13 times a day! So I’ve been putting some stuff together, looking at my life and how it's changed over the years, how the world has changed and how my parents haven't changed a bit! It's going to be a great tour and I can't wait to see you there.”

    ‘8 out of 10 Cats’ (Channel 4), ‘The Nightly Show’(ITV1), ‘Sunday Night at the Palladium’ (ITV1), ‘Live at the Apollo’ (BBC One), ‘Have I Got News For You’, (BBC One), QI (BBC Two) and ‘The Royal Variety Performance’ (ITV1) have all helped establish Jason as a nationally known comic.

    “Effortlessly entertaining” ****

    Evening Standard “He's blessed with the sort of laid-back charm and sharp turn of phrase you can't manufacture”

  • Bastion in the Air - The Collection 26th May to 9th September 2018

    26 May 2018 - 9 Sep 2018
    The Collection Art & Archaeology
    Danes Terrace, Lincoln, Lincolnshire

    aviationheritage@lincolnshire.gov.uk

    The exhibition at The Collection will run from 26th May until 9th September 2018.

    An entrance fee will be applicable but visitors will not need to book in advance. 

    The exhibition focuses on the rising threat to Britain from air attacks by airships and aircraft, and on the British response, including the formation of the RAF in 1918. 

    A number of museums in Germany are supporting this exhibition with information and artefacts. Lord Ashcroft is kindly lending us the original Victoria Cross awarded to Lt William Leefe Robinson for shooting down an airship over Hertfordshire, the first one destroyed over Britain by a fighter aircraft.  We will also be displaying a model zeppelin that is over 5 metres long. 

    Learn about the contribution by Lincolnshire to British aircraft production during the First World War.  Many people – including native 'yellowbellies' – are not aware that Lincoln was one of the world's largest aircraft manufacturing centres at the time!
