Son of Town Hall

Welcome to the mythical world of Son of Town Hall.

They are musicians Ben Parker, from London, and David Berkeley, from New Mexico. They create a world that transcends time and space, complete with Victorian-era outfits, meditations about the sea and songs that beg you to sing along. They have performed to packed audiences across America and Europe.

WHY? ‘Think Simon & Garfunkel lost at sea, and you get a sense of the mythic world at play here’ Philadelphia Inquirer

Christian Garrick and his Budapest Cafe Orchestra

Christian Garrick (violin, darabuka)
Eddie Hession (button accordion)
Adrian Zolotuhin (guitar, saz, balalaika, domra)
Kelly Cantlon (double bass)

The Budapest Café Orchestra were established in 2009 by British composer, violinist and band leader, Christian Garrick.

They play traditional folk and gypsy-flavoured music from across the world. Raucous, toe-tapping Balkan and Russian numbers are combined with jazz and swing inflections. Klezmer, Romanian Doinas and Hungarian Czardas are awarded fresh treatments before they give way to a disarmingly beautiful arsenal of ballads such as the Schindler's List theme or Andy Statman's bitter sweet The Flatbush Waltz. The diverse repertoire often even strays over into the technicolour territory of many a well-loved film or television score.

WHY? ‘Back by popular demand, the fiery vivacity and awe-inspiring musicianship of the finest purveyors of Eastern European gypsy music this side of a Lada scrap heap will leave you with a grin on your face and rhythm in your feet’ The Times

‘The music is magic in their hands’ Sean Rafferty BBC Radio 3

‘Evoking vivid images of Tzigane fiddle maestros, Budapest café life and gypsy campfires - plus a few surprises along the way - hugely entertaining, immense skill and profound musicianship, a show by the BCO is good enough to make you want to book that holiday down the Danube!’ Songlines

‘The boys from the BCO eek out an interesting advantage over others in that they are musically connected to the culture rather than culturally connected to the music and this manifests itself in their performances which are among the most fulfilling live entertainment spectacles you are ever likely to find of any genre’ BBC Celtic Connections

The King and I from the London Palladium

180 mins.

Recorded live from London’s iconic Palladium. The multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Centre Theatre’s production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical.

Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

With one of the finest scores ever written including Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You, and Shall We Dance and featuring a company of over 50 world-class performers.

WHY? ‘Five stars for a sumptuous King and I. Book Now. It’s a hit’ The Times

‘We left the London Palladium on a bright cloud of music - joyous!’ Daily Mail

‘Looks and sounds ravishing. Complete rapture’ The Telegraph
