CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.

-like score bubbles over with brilliant energy and glorious melody.Performers Nigel Lister, Johnson Willis, Susannah Van Den Berg, Eamonn O'Dwyer, Rupert Hill, Phylip Harries, Eric Potts, Polly Frame, Polly Maberly, Daniel Lloyd, Alex Parry, Esther Biddle.
