7.30pm: Coward at Sea with Michael Lunts
Armstrong Hall, Thornbury

Cruise with Coward – a nautical musical comedy based on Noel Coward's 'P&O 1930'.

All aboard the SS Madeira for this nautical musical comedy, for the first time on stage, Noel Coward's magical evocation of the historic P&O route home to Britain from the Far East, when a voyage took weeks rather than hours and passengers got up to all sorts of antics en route.

Actor, pianist and singer Michael Lunts brings to life wonderfully eccentric characters and includes many of 'The Masters' best-loved songs from Matelot to Mad Dogs and Englishmen, from Nina to Marvellous Party and, of course, Sail Away!

Back by popular demand, one of this country's most experienced and widely travelled performers of 'intimate review', Michael is bringing... Read more >>

Free concert: Peter and the Wolf
Armstrong Hall, Thornbury

South Cotswold Youth Orchestra present a very special project indeed - two concert performances of Prokofiev's thrilling 'Peter and the Wolf'.

All of the characters are there, from the quacking duck oboe to the terrifying guns of the timpani, with some fantastic music and an even more brilliant narrator.

There will be two performances of this brilliant work: one at 5.30pm for younger children and one at 7.30pm for adults and older children.

With various sections of the orchestra showcased as animal characters (plus Peter, of course!), it's as much fun for the performers as it is for the orchestra!

We're thrilled to announce that actor and musician John Telfer has agreed to narrate both performances. John's voice is recognised by millions... Read more >>
