The stage version of the ever-popular Radio Four panel show, ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue’ bursts onto the stage at St George’s Hall, Bradford tonight, January at 7.30pm. 
 The self-styled antidote to the panel shows of the 50s and 60s, ‘Clue’ (as it is affectionately known) has been delighting audiences for more than 40 years. It was originally chaired by Humphrey Lyttleton until his death in 2008, and then a series of guest hosts, until Jack Dee took over the reins in 2009. 
 The show sees two panels of two comedians embarking on a number of silly tasks - some of which will have a musical accompaniment, courtesy of Colin Sell.
 Overseeing proceedings during this special series of live dates will be comedian, writer and regular presenter of the channel’s News Quiz, Sandi Toksvig. 
 She said: “I have played at St George’s Hall before and I love the place. 
 “St George’s Hall is the oldest concert hall still in use in the UK and you can feel the laughter echoing down the ages. It’s a great place to play.”
 Joining her will be the show’s familiar faces Tim Brooke-Taylor, Barry Cryer, Graeme Garden and Jeremy Hardy. Tickets for ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue’ are on 01274 432000.

l The New Year will get off to an electrifying start at St George’s Hall, Bradford when Vampires Rock takes to the stage on Thursday, January 22 at 7.30pm.
