Fire and Rain & American Pie

Produced and Hosted by Singer-guitarist Paul Wheeler (TV Director, 'Live at the Apollo') with Sophie Langham (West-End actress-singer and formerly Eastenders).

A heart-warming, musical homage to the great American singer-songwriters of the late 60’s and early 70’s.

Featuring beautiful timeless songs from James Taylor, Carole King, Simon & Garfunkel, Joni Mitchell, Don Mclean, Bread, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, America, The Byrds, Mamas and Papas and Carly Simon.

An excellent 5-piece band will bring you classic songs from this golden era including You’ve got a Friend, (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman, American Pie, Fire and Rain, ‘Big Yellow Taxi, River, Starry Starry Night, Horse with no Name, Mrs Robinson, Make it with you, Feelin’ Groovy, California Dreaming, You’re So Vain, Woodstock and many more !

The show has a relaxed acoustic style, matching the spirit of this era, when many of these artists were neighbours in the Laurel Canyon suburb of L.A.

With an intimate nostalgic narrative including images from that time, the show is sometimes poignant, sometimes amusing, always delightful.

Acoustic Guitar - Absolute Beginners

The aim of these lessons is to get you playing your first song within 4 weeks of lessons, as no-one takes up guitar to strum random chords, it’s all about the songs.

If you are returning to guitar having not played for some time and can barely remember chords this is a great way of getting back into the swing of things.

Bring Baby Choir

Singing is a great way to relieve stress and promote well-being.

Meet new people and take some time for you in this new acappella choir for mums, dads, grandparents, carers and their babies!

It is a baby friendly class, created especially so you can bring the baby you care for. Grown ups are in a semi circle (with room for your buggy next to you) and babies can sit, crawl or play on the blanket in front of you.

These uplifting classes are led by conductor/composer (and mum) Marta Radwan. There's no auditions, no singing experience is needed and you don't need to have a 'good voice' - just an openness to have a go! You'll be sure to know the songs and there will even be some which include your little one.

* Café (open all day)
* Baby changing facilities

Mums, Dads, Grandparents, Carers all welcome with their babies under 18 months
