Martin Barre
Date: 25th January 2019
Details:  In Association with Classic Rock Society

Martin Barre has been the guitarist of Jethro Tull for 43 years, his sound and playing having been a major factor in their success. Album sales have exceeded 60 million units and they continue to be played worldwide, representing an important part of classic rock history.

Martin’s guitar playing has earned him a high level of respect and recognition; he was voted 25th best solo ever in the USA and 20th best solo ever in the UK for his playing on ‘Aqualung’. His playing on the album ‘Crest of a Knave’ earned him a Grammy award in 1988.

As well as numerous Jethro Tull albums, Martin has worked with many other artists including Paul McCartney, Phil Collins, Gary Moore, Jo Bonamassa and Chris Thompson and has shared a stage with such legends as Hendrix, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin.

As Jethro Tull are taking a long break from touring, Martin has put together a band to play the “classic” music from the Tull catalogue. His band is a total commitment to give the Tull fans and a broader audience the chance to hear tracks not performed for many years. The band includes top musicians from a similar background.

With Support from Apostles of Chaos

Hailing out of Yorkshire England, A.O.C are a quintet, consisting of seasoned musicians whom have shared stages with the likes of Magnum, Kaiser Chiefs, Budgie, Screaming Lord Such and Gary Moore but to name a few. Taking their influences from bands dating from the 70’s to present day (Led Zeppelin, Marillion, Rival Sons, Porcupine Tree etc…), the band truly have a unique sound, mixing great rock riffs and melodies with a twist of prog!

Be sure to catch one of their electrifying shows as this band knocks the ball out of the court every-time, leaving you wanting more!

Live/Wire the AC/DC Show
Date: 22nd February 2019
Details:  Live/Wire is The AC/DC Show. The hugely successful and unique six-man tribute to rock music’s greatest band AC/DC, complete with cannons, a wall of Marshalls’ and over two hours of High Voltage Rock ‘n’ Roll in a show critically acclaimed for its closeness in look and sound to the real thing.

Both Bon (Dave) and Brian (Podge) are present on the Rock and Roll train for a night to remember and with the Rhythm section ‘locked in’ the freedom of the stage and the music is given to Simon as Angus Young who gives an uncanny performance with meticulous detail in appearance, energy and his note for note heartfelt renditions in a night of bedevilled Rock and Roll.

The band aim to put you slap bang in the middle of the show with hit after hit, and you are expected to join in ! There’ll also be one or two gems thrown in for the aficionados! We’d be hung, drawn and quartered if we didn’t play all the classics, Back in Black, Rosie, Highway to hell are all there, and the songs keep on coming until the cannons fire ceremoniously to bring the evening to a superb crescendo. If by this time you are still standing…we salute you! Long Live AC/DC, Long Live LIVE/WIRE

A Square World
Date: 24th February 2019
Details:  A Square World is a story of friends who enjoy the same routine day after day, each day is the same until an unexpected change is forced upon just one of them. This accidental happening throws everyone into disarray, the friends are suddenly divided into those who can and the one who can’t.

The friends realise their daily routine is no longer as enjoyable as it was and together decide they need to redefine the rules of the square world in which they live. By injecting a little fun and chaos they soon discover their lives won’t be square ever again!
This endearing and funny performance looks at the unfairness of being left out in a world designed for everyone else but yourself. From the mind of Daryl Beeton comes A Square World, an honest, touching and bizarrely quirky piece of theatre for young audiences.

This nonverbal story, set to an original commissioned soundtrack uses clean-cut simple design, object manipulation and elements of surprise to create an ever evolving and imaginative world. A place where we discover anything can happen once we think differently and rip up the rule book.

Doors: 2:00pm

On Stage: 2:30pm

Tickets: £7 / £5

Please note Under 18's must be accompanied by an adult.
