A listing of confirmed concerts in the hall for 2019 can be found as a PDF file here. To avoid disappointment, please book early for any concert as the venue capacity is only 100, so we often sell out.
Video clips and reviews of selected previous concerts can be found here.
Need somewhere to stay? There are several B&Bs and hotels nearby – the nearest are on this link. There are also many self-catering holiday cottages, although these will often require a minimum 2-night stay (link here). For more village options (caravan sites, youth hostels etc), click here.
An evening of eclectic, contemporary music, as multi-award winner Charlie Dore, one of the UK’s most respected songwriters, returns after a two-year gap. And she’ll be joined again by multi-instrumentalist Julian Littman (of Steeleye Span).
Best known for her 1990s hit Pilot of the Airwaves (the last track ever played on Radio Caroline), the Ivor Novello nominated songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has a multi-faceted career that includes, acting in film, TV and radio, comedy-improvisation and composition for film – as well as performing live with her band.
Her songs have been covered by artists including George Harrison (‘Fear of Flying’), Tina Turner, Lisa Stansfied, Ricky Ross, Sheena Easton, Celine Dion, Black, UB40, Status Quo, Paul Carrack and Jimmy Nail (with the UK No 1, ‘Ain’t No Doubt’).
Expect a fast-moving show as the pair swap guitars, mandolin, harmonium, ukulele, piano and autoharp throughout the evening. They’ll dip into favourites from Charlie’s past seven albums, as well as sharing original acoustic versions of hits Charlie has written for others. And, if we ask nicely, they might even play a version of Pilot of the Airwaves.
