The 'Battle' in the concert name refers to the unique performance of Beethoven's 'Battle Symphony' - a powerful piece of music which was composed to include 193 live firing cannons as part of the score. This is the only concert series in the world to perform Beethoven's most ambitious piece with its full complement of thunderous percussion. A big screen will be displaying all the action from the cavalry, cannons, and stage so you never have to leave your seat!
As founding member of Fascinating Aida, Dillie has amassed over 17 million hits on Youtube for their charming and now infamous takes on a variety of topics from Cheap Flights to OFSTED to Dillie's notorious ode to dogging, which itself has reached 2 million hits so far.
With brand new tunes, grand old favourites, gorgeous songs of love and hilarious songs of utter wickedness, Dillie will break your heart, mend it again and have it sent to the cleaners for pressing. And she'll give you her recipe for chutney while she's at it..
Writer, entertainer, comedienne and broadcaster.
40 years after she first appeared on TV's Opportunity Knocks Pam Ayres brings her latest show to Artrix following the recent paperback release of her latest book of poetry, YOU MADE ME LATE AGAIN! Pam Ayres' work is funny, and approachable. It sounds simple, as though dashed off, but this is deceptive. Her hair-trigger timing, her eye for the detail of everyday life, and for the absurdity therein, makes for an art that hides art. Her books have been bestsellers for 40 years, and Pam is still a regular on Radio and TV, on programmes such as Just A Minute, Loose Ends, six series of Ayres On The Air for Radio 4, the Paul O'Grady Show, Alan Titchmarsh Show, Countdown, and The One Show.
