Twickenham Choral

Choral

, 7.30pm

Doors & bar open: 6.45pm

For an evening of magnificent Baroque exuberance, Twickenham Choral’s first concert in almost two years would be hard to beat.

Carl Philipp Emmanuel Bach’s elaborate setting of the Magnificat is a son’s tribute to his great father, with nods too in the direction of his godfather Telemann, while Handel’s much-loved Dixit Dominus, unarguably one of his greatest choral works, is a showpiece for singers and string players alike – vivacious, triumphant and brilliant.

We are excited to be accompanied once again by the Brandenburg Baroque Soloists and four dazzling young singers, as we approach our Centenary in 2022.

Conductor Christopher Herrick; Brandenburg Baroque Soloists Alexandra Kidgell (Soprano), Alexandra Gibson (Alto), Mark Dobell (Tenor), Ben Davies (Bass).

new Cloudbusting: The Music of Kate Bush

Tribute act

, 8pm

Doors & bar open: 7.15pm

Supper

Cloudbusting have been championed by BBC ONE as one of the most authentic tributes in the world. Their passion for Kate’s music has won over sceptical fans everywhere, challenging perceptions of what a tribute band can be and resulting in sell-out performances across the UK. Many of Kate’s original collaborators from stage and studio have been inspired to join the band on stage, including bass player Del Palmer, drummer Preston Heyman and dancer Stewart Avon Arnold, all of whom performed with Kate on her legendary Tour of Life live shows 40 years ago.

‘There can only be one Kate Bush’ says vocalist Mandy Watson, who never attempts to mimic Kate on stage. ‘When you sing her music the characters in the songs take over – they are what you become, not Kate. We're just fans, delighted at this opportunity to perform the music we love so much’.

Cloudbusting can’t wait to whip up a storm of love for Kate’s music with their very special Christmas celebration, featuring all the hits you’d expect as well as many songs you wouldn’t! Wuthering Heights, Running Up That Hill, Hounds of Love, This Woman’s Work… and of course the seasonal delights of December Will Be Magic Again and Home For Christmas – they’re coming to sparkle the dark up!

Utterly, surreally brilliant

Mick Wall, Classic Rock Magazine

If you missed seeing Kate herself, Cloudbusting are the next best thing!

Tribute act

, 8pm

Doors & bar open: 7.15pm

Legendary troubadour Gary Stewart (Gary Stewart Band / Hope and Social) and his incredible 6-piece band recreate Paul Simon’s landmark Graceland album in all its glory.

Let the singing, dancing and nostalgia take hold and pretend you’re basking under the hot summer sun in Zimbabwe.

…a huge joy to listen to [and] an ambitious and wonderful feat to achieve in a live performance.

An Evening with John Illsley – The Life and Times of Dire Straits; Music & Memories

Rock & roll, Q & A…

, 8pm

Doors & bar open: 7.15pm

Along with Mark Knopfler, John was a founder member of the legendary band who, during their time together, sold over 120 million albums.

The evening will feature classics from the Dire Straits history and include a Q & A with video clips led by Paul Cummins. John will reveal the story and development of the band from its humble beginnings in a council flat in South London, where songs like Sultans of Swing and Wild West End were created, to their journey playing all over the world to millions of fans and working with some of the world’s most influential and creative musicians and producers.

Having Mark Knopfler as songwriter, singer and guitar player in the band gave Dire Straits its unique character. It was a pleasure for me to be able to contribute to the distinctive sound of the band, and enjoy the friendship and musical journey that Mark and I shared.

John will be joined on stage by members of his band to perform music from the whole DS catalogue including Money for Nothing, Brothers in Arms, Romeo and Juliet and Sultans of Swing.

It promises to be a special, intimate evening looking into the life and times of one of the biggest rock & roll bands of all time.
