What's on

Saturday 26th September 2015, 7.30pm

Musical Comedy – Flanders and Swann Revisited

Cossham Hall, Thornbury

Flanders and Swann Revisited – through the eyes of Sir John Betjeman.

Laugh away those 21st Century Blues in the company of Flanders and Swann, perfectly complemented by the words and wit of Sir John Betjeman.

Featuring a cornucopia of songs familiar and less familiar from 'The Hippopotamus' to 'A Transport of Delight', from 'The Gnu' to 'Have Some Madeira, M'Dear', the songs of Flanders and Swann are, as pianist, actor and singer Michael Lunts shows, rooted in the vision of the recent past often called 'Betjeman's Britain'.

A world where 'Miss Joan Hunter Dunn' unwittingly brushes shoulders with the ill-fated lovers in 'The Honeysuckle and the Bindweed', where Betjeman shares his love of all forms of 'obsolete transport' with Flanders and Swann's evocation of pre-Beeching Britain in 'The Slow Train'. You can wallow (along with the Hippopotamus) in a little nostalgia for a by-gone world.

Michael Lunts, back by popular demand, is one of this country's most experienced and widely travelled performers of 'intimate review'. Michael is bringing this unique and innovative show as part of the fund-raising Armstrong Hall Refurbishment Project (Phase 1).

Tickets £12 each, to include a first drink and interval finger bites, from the Town Hall or phone 01454 412272.
