We are proud to present a concert marking what would have been the 70th birthday of Music in the Round's founder, Peter Cropper, who died suddenly in May 2015. We have left his introductory words as he gave them to us. He made an immense impression on chamber music worldwide, both as a brilliant performer and as a passionate advocate for it. "For my 70th birthday concert I have chosen Haydn and Beethoven trios as Martin and Moray have shared the most significant part of my present performing life. Those two composers have also been crucial to the history of Music in the Round and my passion for chamber music." Peter Cropper
A Christmas Carol is the most famous book Charles Dickens ever wrote and one of the most daring. As the Ghosts spirit Scrooge from his past to his present to his future, Dickens plunges the reader cinematically from the miser's dank and creaking house in the City to riotous festivities, from cozy hearths to graveyards. And all the time the author's voice, tender, savage, magisterial, is present.
Clive Francis reprises his acclaimed RSC performance as the misanthropic Ebenezer Scrooge, inspired by Dickens' first reading and performance of A Christmas Carol on 27 December 1853 at the Birmingham Town Hall.
When a theatre is 'dark' it means that it is closed. This may be temporary, e.g. between shows, or it may be semi-permanent, e.g. when it is closed for refurbishment (sometimes it is uncertain when this happens whether it will actually open again) and sometimes it means that the theatre is completely out to action, lost or gone!
From folksinger to flower-child to timeless musical poet, Donovan and his distinctive, magical songs have become familiar to decades of music fans since the early Sixties through singles like Mellow Yellow, Sunshine Superman, The Hurdy Gurdy Man, Catch the Wind, Colours and Atlantis.
You will be treated to Donovan's history of all his hits:- 'Sunshine Superman', 'Mellow Yellow', 'The Hurdy Gurdy Man', 'Jenifer Juniper' to name a few, plus also his legendary storytelling and cult songs. These shows will celebrate Donovan's 50th year in the music business, which also include his recent album release 'Donovan Retrospective' and brand new single 'One English Summer' available on Amazon and ITunes. This most auspicious anniversary will prompt a major renaissance for the man whose fingerprints can be seen throughout the last half century of popular music.
The village of flint knappers is safe, self satisfied, and inward looking, but a stray arrow, an amputation, and a wild woman from the salt sea marshes bring murder, mystery and cataclysmic change. Narrated by a one armed story teller and his daughter, in a language as pared down and flinty as their tools and weapons, Jim Crace's award winning historical novel is brought to the stage by the company whose brilliant adaptations have ranged from the hilarious 39 Steps to the scary The Rocking Horse Winner, and most recently the deeply moving A Month in the Country.

Recorded at Sheffield's Yellow Arch Studio in spring 2015, Hollow Meadow sees Hawley return to the classic, sophisticated songwriting and subtle arrangements that made him so widely loved and revered in the first place. Meditating on such themes as ageing, fallibility and relationships, much of the album shares a brooding, yet wistful and romantic atmosphere in keeping with early albums Late Night Final and Lowedges, as well as touches of 2009's Truelove's Gutter and Standing At The Sky's Edge.

The music, dance and songs of Harlem's hottest club from 1920s New York City. The music and dance routines will be recreated by jazz dance company The Jiving Lindy Hoppers and Harry Strutters Hot Rhythm Orchestra who honour the exuberance and sounds of The Cotton Club.
