FELIXSTOWE'S seafront theatre looks set to enjoy a pair of sell-out shows this month when it plays host to two of the biggest names in British showbiz.

There is already not a single ticket left for comedian Jim Davidson's performance, and it looks likely that singer David Essex will be playing to a full house, too.

Management at the Spa Pavilion are delighted with the way the public has snapped up the tickets and expect the shows to be excellent value for those lucky enough to be going along.

Jim Davidson's show on Thursday November 8 will be an adults only event, an evening of quick-fire stand-up comedy in which he will take no prisoners as he rips into forbidden topics in his unrivalled style.

It will certainly not be the family fun Jim from the Generation Game as he demonstrates the other side of his showbiz personality.

David Essex shot to fame in the early 1970s when he sprang to prominence with the chart-topper Hold Me Close.

In the past 30 years, he has had 23 Top 30 singles in Britain alone, and sold millions of albums and single worldwide. His career has spanned concerts, theatres, composing, films and television and he is a still a heartthrob.

His latest show – which comes to Felixstowe on Tuesday November 13 at 7.30pm – is a showcase for the highlights of his breathtaking career.

A spokeswoman for the 913-seater Spa said there were a few tickets left for the show and these were expected to sell in the next few days. There would be no tickets available for the concert on the door on the night.

It's a busy month at the theatre with a number of high-profile shows lined up.

Hypnotist Paul McKenna is starring tonight when brave members of the audience put themselves at his mercy to be hypnotised on stage, and on Sunday November 11 the Syd Lawrence Orchestra return.

Cockney rockers Chas 'n' Dave will be in town on November 14 for a special show in which they mark their 27 years together with an evening of songs and stories of their time together and life on the road.

Other highlights this month include a tribute to Queen on November 16, rock and roll show Greased Lightning on November 17, and Felixstowe Musical Theatre with the panto Mother Goose from November 22 to 24.
