The hit show, which is on its first UK tour, will be at the city venue from March 2 to 25 next year.

Weaving Abba's timeless songs into a tale of family and friendship that unfolds on a Greek island paradise, Mamma Mia has to date been seen by more than 60 million people in 50 productions worldwide. It is one of only five musicals to have run for more than 10 years on both Broadway and in London's West End, and the film version is said to be the highest worldwide grossing live-action musical film of all time.

Meanwhile, actress Felicity Kendal will head the cast of the drama A Room With A View - based on the classic EM Forster novel - from November 7 to 12.

An Afternoon With Sir Roger Moore on November 13 will see the James Bond star chat about his life and career, and on December 18 Rob Kingsley will present A Vision Of Elvis. Actor, writer and comedian Miles Jupp will take to the stage with his spiky comedy on January 9.
