Kingdom of Madness: Classic Magnum

Members of Magnum’s classic-era line-ups and other top-drawer rock alumni unite to perform classic Magnum songs from the celebrated 1978-94 period.

Mark Stanway (keyboards), Micky Barker (drums), Richard Bailey (keyboards/flute) and Mo Birch (vocals/percussion), all of whom have previously performed with Magnum, provide the nucleus of Kingdom of Madness.

For their 2021 shows they are joined by vocalist Tony Martin, best known for his decade spent fronting Black Sabbath, bassist Brian Badhams (Bernie Marsden’s Alaska, Steve Gibbons Band) and guitarist Alan Bell.

One of the UK’s finest exponents of melodic rock music, Magnum achieved high album and singles chart positions in both the UK and Europe and gained a reputation as one of the UK most captivating live bands.

This reunion of former members of one the UK’s most revered melodic rock bands to perform music that has touched the hearts of several generations of music fans has been met with the highest acclaim from both music critics and audiences alike.

Martin Turner ex Wishbone Ash - Wishbone Gold

Martin Turner and his band return to the Courtyard Theatre to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the formation of the original Wishbone Ash. The band will perform another classic album in its entirety – 1971's Pilgrimage.

Wishbone Ash was formed by West Country musicians Martin Turner and Steve Upton, in 1969.

Five decades later, the music of the classic line-ups of Wishbone Ash continues to delight audiences worldwide through both live performances and a rich legacy of recorded work that continues to be enjoyed by fans old and new.

Martin Turner continues to perform the band’s best loved works with his current line-up, which features guitarists Danny Willson and Misha Nikolic and drummer Tim Brown.

The Spring 2020 Wishbone Gold tour will see Martin and his band performing 1971’s iconic Pilgrimage album – as well as other favourites from the classic era of Wishbone Ash, including Argus highlights.

WHY? The Wishbone Gold tour will mark the very first time Pilgrimage has been performed in its entirety on stage and this tour is an event that no Wishbone Ash aficionado will want to miss

Royal Opera House Live: Giselle (12A)

Encore screening of the 2016 production from the Royal Opera House.

The greatest of all Romantic ballets, Peter Wright’s production of Marius Petipa’s classic is a tale of betrayal, the supernatural and love that transcends death. Starring Marianela Nuñez and Vadim Muntagirov.

The role of Giselle provides the dancer with many technical and dramatic challenges, from the character’s early love to her poignant descent into madness and her final gesture of forgiveness from beyond the grave. The first act of the ballet is filled with historical detail and rustic colour. By contrast, the second, ‘white’ act plunges the audience into an eerie moonlit forest haunted by the ethereal Wilis.

WHY? With its combination of memorable story and exquisite choreography, Giselle is the perfect way to discover classical ballet

Run time 135 mins.

Courtyard Theatre
