A tragically romantic tale of a young girl who falls deeply in love however she would soon be deceived for he was betrothed to another. Through despair and desperation the young girl kills herself as she could not live without him.

 Andy Eastwood                         THE MUSICAL MERRYMAKER 

 Saturday 21st March 2020 @ 8pm
   

Andy Eastwood has gained a richly deserved reputation as a multi-instrumental variety act, combining his playing ability and vocal prowess with a highly amusing delivery. He had been a supporting act on many Ken Dodd's theatre shows, and starred in a war time revue We'll Meet Again, in which he portrayed the iconic George Formby on hundreds of occasions on its nationwide tour. Andy's tv appearances include Barrymore, Blue Peter, GMTV, and today with Des and Mel. He also taught comedian Frank Skinner to play the ukulele for the BBC show Play it Again, and as a result a George Formby documentary was made for the BBC named What a Performance. Andy's versatility and whole demeanour knows no bounds. So whether he is playing ukulele, banjo, guitar or violin, you will be highly impressed by this artist's versatility and charisma.

  AJ'S BIG BAND - VE Day 75th Anniversary - Back to the 40's Saturday 16th May 2020 @ 7:30pm
  


 

A.J.'s highly acclaimed seventeen piece band, now into its thirty fourth year, has always been closely associated with the unforgettable arrangements and songs of the Thirties and Forties - music that helped to prop up morale during the war-torn years. Who can forget Glenn Miller's Moonlight Serenade, In the Mood and Little Brown Jug, to mention just a few of his many hits?  Remembering the popular vocalists of that era, the famous Andrew  Sisters sang Bugle Boy and Chatanooga Choo Choo, whilst Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra were the pop star crooners of that time.  In Britain, the Forces favourite was the wonderful Vera Lynn, whose evocative songs, such as We'll Meet Again and the White Cliffs of Dover, meant so much to so many - in and out of uniform.

A.J.'s Big band is delighted to be returning to the Princess Theatre for this special concert. MD Ken Parr, together with some of the West Country's top musicians and songstress, Paula Mitchell, will be performing a musical tribute to those who gave us the freedom we now enjoy.   Early booking is recommended.
