The Prime Minister has just been shot dead in the lobby of the House of Commons. Parliament is in uproar. There is anarchy in the UK. But who’s really behind this Spencer Percival has one claim to fame. He’s the only Prime Minister ever to be assassinated. Unfortunately no one’s heard of him.

206 years later, in his one man show, Nick Hall tells his story at the Leicester Comedy Festival. In this inventive journey through history, Nick brings alive the world of the 1800s, while drawing parallels with the present.

Nick Hall is at Attenborough Arts Centre on Friday 9th February.

Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Great Central, John has been actively involved in Leicester's creative community for over a decade - promoting shows and releasing records under the name Robot Needs Home. He is a director of Handmade Festival, and ex member of the band Maybeshewill.
