THE frontman of Madness takes to the stage in a hilarious and moving one-man tour de force.

Suggs presents My Life Story in Words and Music at Malvern Theatres on Friday, April 25 and the talk focusses on his personal quest to discover what happened to the father he never knew.

Prompted by the death of his beloved cat on his 50th birthday, it is part play, part stand-up comedy and part Music Hall entertainment as he is taken back to his childhood on the tough streets of 1970s Soho and his first appearance on Top Of The Pops at the age of 18.

There will be musical accompaniment and uncalled for unterjection from Suggs' loyal manservant-cum-pianist, Deano.

The show in the Forum Theatre starts at 7.45pm and tickets are £29.68, including a 12 per cent booking fee.
