Dave Gorman, the man behind Dave TV’s hit show Modern Life Is Goodish as well as Are You Dave Gorman? and Googlewhack Adventure, is back on the road with a brand new live show, Powerpoint To The People
The ‘high priest of the comedy Powerpoint talk’ (The Times) is touring again – as much as anything to demonstrate that a powerpoint presentation doesn’t have to involve a man in a grey suit standing behind a lectern and saying ‘next slide please’. We’ve all had enough of that, so let’s put it all behind us and never speak of it again – there are far more important things to analyse. Well… they’re more important in Dave’s head anyway.

Opened in 1931, mainly to act as a venue for the Leith Hill Music Competition, Dorking Halls was the property of the festival until WWII during which they were commandeered by the Meat Marketing Board and the army. In 1946, the halls were thriving, with community events being held there, including flower shows, scout meetings and dances. They were refurbished in 1997 and the venue became a location for theatre, comedy and music, as well as films.
The halls are located in the centre of town and there is parking available at the side and rear of the venue as well as opposite in the council offices car park.
