Simon Weston

In April 1982 Argentina invaded the Falklands Islands.

Amongst those sent to the conflict was Simon Weston OBE. When RFA Sir Galahad was bombed by two Argentine planes, it would change his life forever. For the first time, Simon takes to the stage to tell his story with no holds barred. Guiding him from that fateful day to current times is David Fitzgerald, former Sky news anchor and close friend.

WHY? An inspirational show about one man’s journey from the front line of war

Nex’t’Nothin

Nex’t’Nothin was formed shortly after David Snell (Guitar) and David Shepherd (Bass, Keyboard) found themselves playing in the same covers band. They decided to create songs of their own, taking influences from Rock, Folk, Jazz and even the odd orchestral moment. There are a lot of chords in the world, and they do their best to use them all!

John Cee Stannard & Blues Horizon

John Cee Stannard has been performing, largely in folk clubs, for fifty years. His first blues based album was launched in 2013, after which he formed his trio, Blues Horizon. Their music is a good-time, foot-tapping kind of blues with strong rag-time influences, a good deal of country blues feel and some hints of jazz.
