Details:  St Michael's ADS have chosen this wonderful improbable farce for their Spring Play. Ruth Mcloughlin is directing. Don't miss it!
"Charles Condomine, a successful novelist, invites an unwitting local medium to his house to perform a seance as research for his new book. The consequences are hilarious as the spirit of his first wife Elvira is accidentally called into the home, much to the disquiet of his new wife Ruth. As Elvira is only visible to Charles, we are witness to some lovely comic moments amongst the trio. Ghostly supernatural tricks and wonderful Noel Coward humour make this a night to remember!"

The Producers
Date: 27th May 2017
Details:  It’s safe to say that for the past 25 years , The Producers have certainly been busy. They have released nine albums, of which 'Ain't no Love in the World' won them 'Blues Album of the Year' award. They’ve featured in session live on the 'Paul Jones' show on BBC Radio 2 as well as the Johnny Walker and Bob Harris shows, received airplay around the world and they've had many guests appearing with them both live and in the studio including Jethro Tulls Martin Barre, Dave Kelly, Ben Waters, The Groundhogs Tony McPhee, Andy Fairweather Low and the brass section of the Ray Charles Orchestra including the Raelets!

They have travelled to Australia, New Zealand, the USA, the Bahamas and all over the UK and most of Europe, played at or headlined most of the major blues festivals in the UK, Ireland and Europe plus the Tauranga Jazz and Blues Festival in New Zealand, Freeport Blues Festival in the Bahamas and the Atlanta Blues Festival USA.

During those years they have had various members on drums, guitars, harmonica and keyboards all accomplished musicians always supporting The Producers central core of band founders guitarist/vocalist Harry Skinner and bassist Dave Saunders. As well as Harry and Dave the present band also feature popular sessioneer Ray Drury on Keyboards and 'Biff' Smith on Drums.

With this line - up The Producers are still out there playing the freshest live blues in Britain today. Concerned with feel and attitude rather than slavishly copying 'hand me down' American music, The Producers move effortlessly between their own well crafted material and seriously reinvigorated classics stamped with their own characteristic identity, still barnstorming across the country playing sell-out club, theatre and festival dates having developed an impressive reputation over 25 years that no one can ignore.

To compliment the tour they are also releasing a new album of mostly original songs which will be only be available on the tour dates.

Doors: 7:30pm

Tickets: £14

Under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult and seated on the balcony upstairs.

Panic Room
Date: 2nd June 2017
Details:  “Monumental…. Inspired… Explosive… Unstoppable”
(GetReadyToRock)

“Music of epic grandeur, sheer power, and devastating beauty”
(PowerPlay)

PANIC ROOM make a triumphant return to the Citadel this June, armed with a stunning new Album and Live DVD.

The multi-Award-Winning band release their 6th studio album this Spring - ‘A brave, beautiful and pioneering work’ -

and will debut this exciting new music in their major UK Tour.

Regarded as ‘One of the best live bands in Britain today’ (Mojo), PANIC ROOM are leading the way in an exciting new wave of
British alternative-rock.

Their last album ‘Incarnate’ hit the Top 10 of the Independent Album Charts, and the band’s profile continues to rise.

Lead singer Anne-Marie Helder has been dubbed ‘the finest frontwoman of her generation’, with her soaring voice and magnetic stage presence.

She was also voted 'Best Female Vocalist' for 2 years running in a national music magazine. ('Prog')

The band recently filmed a breathtaking new Live DVD at the Islington Assembly Hall, London.

Its release in early 2017 will mark the start of a momentous New Year, full of possibilities.

PANIC ROOM's epic performances at The Citadel are now legendary....

Don’t miss your chance to witness the next chapter!

Expect to hear: an explosion of brand new music, alongside the iconic songs and epic anthems which PANIC ROOM are famed for.

Expect to see: a truly spectacular live show, performed with passion, excellence, genuine warmth and charisma by this world-class band.

ABOUT THE BAND

• Anne-Marie Helder - vocal / guitars

• Dave Foster - lead guitar

• Jonathan Edwards - keyboards

• Yatim Halimi - bass

• Gavin Griffiths - drums

PANIC ROOM are a unique band, with a unique sound.

The 5 band members hail from very different backgrounds - Wales, Essex, Runcorn, and Singapore...

& This diversity of roots and influences has created a remarkable fusion of sound, evident in all 5 Award-Winning albums.

Powerful, hypnotic, compelling, with deep and memorable melodies...

Yet often playful and quirky.

Interweaving flavours of rock, pop, jazz, blues, folk, prog and world music, all combining to create a whole new genre.

Infamously hard to define, one eminent music journalist recently noted:

‘Many bands sound like their predecessors. PANIC ROOM only sound like PANIC ROOM’.

This was not a conscious move on the band’s part - they simply ‘Make the music we want to make... Wherever it takes us!’

But with 5 world-class musicians in one space, this can lead them down some fascinating paths.

And where the band go, their devoted fanbase will follow -

PANIC ROOM have a vast and booming community of worldwide fans, affectionally dubbed ‘the Roomies’!

In 2016, the fans helped PANIC ROOM to smash through their £25,000 target on PledgeMusic, which enabled the filming of their debut Live DVD in London.

This was one of the most successful UK crowdfunding campaigns of the year, and the band openly thank their ‘amazing’ supporters for making this possible.
