The Tommy Cooper Show

The Tommy Cooper show returns to Theatre Severn with West End star Daniel Taylor (Blood Brothers, Lennon Through A Glass Onion) as Tommy Cooper, in the knockout performance of the year.

Between the story, the gags, the magic and Daniel’s incredible portrayal of showbusiness legend Tommy Cooper, this promises to be a very special show.

Performances at 2.30pm & 7.30pm.
