Big Top Shows 2015

Welcome to our Big Top Concert series for 2015.
This year there are 3 concerts - each night with a different theme.
The concept of these concerts is to bring you more than just a few artists up on stage doing their stuff, great though that might be - these concerts are different!
We want you to experience the widest range of artists and performances all wrapped up in a theme. You can expect songs, music, dance and everything in between.


Saturday, 24th MayThe Tale of Ale
6:30pm - 8:30pm

This first concert is "The Tale of Ale".
Back in the 70's when even this festival was quite young a double album was produced that told the tale of beer and ale through songs, music, prose and poems. It was a great album and used as a valuable source for anyone singing about their favourite tipple.
This performance will bring it all up to date with a brand new show, a brand new album and a re-release of the original album on a double CD.
The show has some great musicians including Keith Kendrick, Sylvia Needham. Doug Eunson, Sarah Matthews, Oli Matthews, Pete Bullock, Roger Warren and John Titford with readings from John Titford and Roger Warren. This is the first major performance of the show and really should not be missed.
Rolling in the aisles

Sunday, 25th May
6:30pm - 8:30pm

"You're Having a Laugh!" is a comedy based 2 hours of side splitting mayhem. In fact probably a manifestation of mutual merrymaking!
Keith Donnelly is the master of mirth and will be orchestrating a madcap show which will feature himself, The London Philharmonic Skiffle Orchestra, The Mrs Ackroyd's band and much, much more. You can expect to have a brilliant time... quite possibly convulsed with laughter!
A Days Work

Monday, 26th May
6:30pm - 8:30pm

As a complete contrast to Sundays performance we present "A Days Work".
On the eve of The Great War a group of lifelong friends gather to discuss the impending conflict. Farm Labourers and performers in the village mummers' play: will they leave their traditions behind them and answer the call? What awaits them as the fighting moves remorselessly towards the Battle of the Somme?
Acclaimed on the folk scene and beyond when first performed in 1995, 'A Day's Work' is now re-written for The Great War Centenary with newly-composed songs and a cast of multi-talented and highly respected performers including Mick Ryan, Paul Downes, Heather Bradford, Greg Russell, Matt Quinn and Pete Morton.
