Funny Girl

   Sheridan Smith gives the performance of a lifetime in this brilliant production of Funny Girl.

With music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Bob Merrill and book by Isobel Lennart, the Broadway smash which skyrocketed Barbra Streisand to stardom, was revived with Sheridan Smith playing Fanny Brice, who rose from the Lower East Side of New York to become one of Broadway's biggest stars under producer Florenz Ziegfield.  While she was cheered onstage as a great comedienne, offstage she faced a doomed relationship with the man she loved.  With a score featuring now-classic songs such as "People", "You Are Woman, I Am Man" and "Don't Rain on My Parade", this new production directed by  Michael Mayer was a must-see theatrical event.

‘Michael Mayer’s vivacious production has wit, charm and energy, sparkly choreography, and a strong, ebullient cast.’ Financial Times

'Sheridan Smith is one of British Theatre’s truly golden performers – a versatile star who thrills with her ability to be simultaneously touching and hilarious. Here she’s on glorious form.' Evening Standard

 ‘An unforgettable star turn… Smith is hilarious, glorious, touching. With a performance that is all-singing, all dancing, all-joking and, somehow, all-soul too.’ The Times

Music Iwan Llewelyn-Jones
A Piano Recital
Saturday 3 November7.30pm

Nocturnes and Waltzes

Frédéric Chopin and Friends

Iwan Llewelyn-Jones returns to the Ucheldre Centre in 2018-19 to perform four recitals that explore the captivating piano music of Frédéric Chopin, and specifically the Nocturnes and Waltzes, timeless masterpieces brimming with beguiling charm and sparkling wit.


For this opening recital, Iwan Llewelyn-Jones performs Chopin’s earliest Nocturnes and Waltzes dating from the 1830s when the young composer took Vienna by storm with a series of highly successful concert appearances. Maurice Ravel’s ‘Noble and Sentimental Waltzes’ and Franz Liszt’s ‘Soirée de Vienne’ evoke the joyful world of the Viennese ballroom, something that is far removed from Liszt’s demonic and gripping Mephisto Waltz, a tour de force of pianistic virtuosity.

The series continues in 2019 February 2, April 6 and June 22.


Music Voskresenije Choir Sunday 4 November7.30pm

Voskresenije Choir (St Petersburg)

Russian Sacred and Folk Music

We are honoured to be hosting a performance by the Voskresenije (Resurrection) Choir who will be performing here as part of their 2018 UK Tour. This is an event not to be missed with many marvellous voices, including Anatoliy Artamonov who is an "octave" singer, reaching a low as a G Contra Octave (49.00HZ). 

 The Voskresenije Choir, all internationally trained at the world class St Petersburg Conservatoire and conducted by musical director Jurij Maruk, plan a programme in two parts: the first half concentrates on Russian sacred music including works by Rachmaninov, and, in the second, Russian folk songs allow each of the performers to perform a solo.
