Robyn Hitchcock

Fri 18 Sep • 8pm • Full £20 • Music

Proudly Presented by RMT Music

Robyn Hitchcock is one of England’s most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician’s musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock’s father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).

Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starred in ‘Storefront Hitchcock’, an in-concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme.

Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as “paintings you can listen to”. His most recent album is self-titled and marks his 21st release as a solo artist. Out on April 21st 2017, the album is produced by Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs). Hitchcock describes it as an “ecstatic work of negativity with nary a dreary groove.” It has received rave reviews from UNCUT, Rolling Stone, Paste, Tidal and more.

“A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings…” – Rolling Stone


“These 10 gems slither, rock, roll, glide and shapeshift, coalescing around Hitchcock’s typically anxious, strained but striking and immediately identifiable vocals.” 
– American Songwriter

John Otway & Wild Willy Barrett in Concert

Fri 12 Jun • 8pm • Full £15 Concs £13 • Music

After more than 40 years of attempted escapes and still loved for their total in-yer-face originality, the contrast between the dead-pan humour of Barrett and mad onstage antics of Otway are hilarious. John is a lyrical genius and is partnered by Willy’s ability to play almost every known instrument, including a few home-made ones.

It soon transpired that the ‘Last Straw Tour’ was only to be the last of… well, quite a few more, as Willy claims that the phrase was aimed at the audience dying off rather than the duo finally citing artistic differences and splitting up.

The Barber of Seville

Fri 10 & Sat 11 Jul • 7:30pm • Full £14 Concs £13 • Opera

By Gioacchino Rossini
Musical Director Peter Blackwood
Stage Director Jane Clark 

Presented by Bath Opera

Restoration Comedy meets Whitehall Farce.
Subterfuge, mistaken identity, sleight of hand… and lovely music.

Figaro is central to the plot and uses all his cunning and brains to manipulate the rest of the cast.
Bartolo, an elderly Doctor seeks to make beautiful Rosina, more than his ward by marrying her. She has other ideas…
Master of disguises Count Almaviva, (aka Lindoro, aka a drunken soldier, aka a singing teacher) is madly in love with Rosina – although he has never actually met her! With Figaro’s help she tries to thwart Bartolo’s plans to marry her.
Rosina is no shrinking violet and rather fancies Lindoro (who is really the Count). Gentlemen beware if you dare to cross Rosina!
Add to the mix the greedy music teacher Don Basilio who runs with the hare and the hounds but has his price when it comes to whose side he is actually on – and the result is glorious mayhem!

James Warren & His Mighty Miniature Orchestra

Fri 3 Jul • 8pm • Full £20 • Music

Way back in the 1960’s when love was all around and The Beatles were fab, a young James Warren took up the guitar.
His ‘silent admiration for the boys in the Beatle boots’ soon gave way to a band called Stackridge. The music was heady, wayward and like nothing else.
A dream came true when their 3rd album ‘The Man In The Bowler Hat’ was produced by none other than George Martin – his first production after the Fab Four.
Out of the smash hits of The Korgis through to the eclectic solo albums of James Warren, always with a strangely compelling mix of psychedelia, love songs and some other odd things(!) emerged the idea for a new show.
An amazing journey would need an amazing band! – WE HAVE ONE!

James Warren – Vocals/Acoustic guitar/bass,
Al Steele – Guitar/Vocals/Keyboards/Bass/Percussion,
Richard Mainwaring – Violin/French Horn/Vocals/Trumpet/Bass/Percussion
Pete Wilson -Keyboards/Clarinet/Sax/Vocals/Percussion.
As if that is not enough(!) we will be augmented by a fabulous 5-piece string section!

SO!… get your loons out, dust off your paisley shirt, and come take a trip that begins in the 60’s and ends up…
Well, wherever we end up, we hope to find you at the other end!
