Ahmed Dickinson and Eduardo Martin present The Bridge

The famous composer and guitarist Eduardo Martín joins the renowned young guitarist Ahmed Dickinson Cárdenas to create this duo that masterfully addresses the diverse tendencies and styles of the Cuban contemporary music scene.

Martín explores Afro, classical and Anglo-Saxon pop among other varied musical genres that mix in the creative universe of this composer while using in a virtuous way multiple techniques that expand the expressive qualities of the guitar. The use of intelligent melodies, the approach to cultures and dissimilar times converge with the Afro-Caribbean nature trying to propose a musical framework in which the stylistic barriers disappear.

Anything Goes - The Musical

Encore screenings from the Barbican.

Don’t miss Anything Goes, ‘the show of the year’ (★★★★★ The Telegraph) and a ‘fizzing tonic for our times’ (★★★★★ The Guardian) when it sails into cinemas nationwide.

Filmed live at the Barbican in London, this major new 5-star production of the classic musical comedy features an all-star cast led by renowned Broadway royalty Sutton Foster reprising her Tony Award-winning performance as Reno Sweeney, alongside three-time Olivier Award and Tony Award winner Robert Lindsay (My Family), Evening Standard Theatre Award winner Felicity Kendal (The Good Life) and beloved West End Legend Gary Wilmot (Chicago).

A heart-warming romance spectacular dance routines and some of theatre’s most memorable songs, Anything Goes is ‘a joyously shipshape revival’ (★★★★★ The Observer).

When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love... proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, a comical disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail.

This hilarious musical romp across the Atlantic, directed by the multi-award-winning Broadway director and choreographer Kathleen Marshall, features Cole Porter’s joyful score, including I Get A Kick Out of You, You’re the Top and the show stopping Anything Goes. The ‘musical equivalent of sipping one glass of champagne after another’ (★★★★★ The Times), Anything Goes will take you back to the Golden Age of high society on the seas from the comfort of your cinema seat.

Christmas with the Queen's Six

Based at Windsor Castle, the members of The Queen's Six make up half of the Lay Clerks of St George's Chapel, whose homes lie within the Castle walls.

This rare privilege demands the highest musical standards, as they sing regularly for the Royal family, notably the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as well as Prince Philip’s funeral.

The Queen's Six have extensively toured Europe and the USA but will be debuting at Norden Farm this Christmas, so join them for an evening mixing traditional carols with some more modern offerings and plenty of festive cheer.
