Doors 7:30 pm
Price £17.50 / £19.50
Please note, all tickets purchased for the postponed date (15th September 2011) will remain valid for the rescheduled date.
A witty, perceptive and thought provoking evening of songs and stories from two of the nation’s greats.
Tony’s stories recall memories and anecdotes from a lifetime at the forefront of
British politics, illuminating and extremely funny. Tony is one of this country’s best loved public figures. On retiring after 50 years in the House of Commons he declared he was retiring “…in order to spend more time in politics.”
Roy is a truly international artist who has appeared on stage, television and radio
around the world, from Vancouver to Sydney, Cape Town to Stockholm. In 1998 he gave a hugely successful concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall celebrating 40 years as a performer. Tony considers him “The greatest socialist folksinger of his generation.”
The pair have previously performed this show at the Cambridge Folk Festival and been previously recognized as Best Live Act at BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
This intimate show promises to be a memorable night indeed.
