Newton Faulkner

Newton Faulkner
We are delighted to be welcoming for the first time the unique and world renowned singer/songwriter Newton Faulkner. Newton is known for his incredible guitar playing talent and the power and purity of his voice. He has a unique playing style that enables him to produce a bewildering array of percussive effects on his instrument and an amazing gift of totally captivating his audience as soon as he starts to play. He has produced five albums and will be performing all the classic hits from his extensive repertoire of outstanding music. He released his debut #1 album Hand Built by Robots in 2007 which sold a million copies and spent a year in the Top 40. He released three singles from this album, the beautiful Dream Catch Me, the unbelievably catchy I Need Something and the atmospheric Teardrop. The follow-up, Rebuilt By Humans, was a tribute to the surgeons who saved his career after his right wrist was shattered in a freak mishap in the French Alps. His third album, the upbeat Write In On Your Skin, gave him a second chart-topper in 2012, followed by 2013’s Studio Zoo and in 2015 his latest studio album Human Love. He consistently delivers outstanding performances on stage and is very much at home headlining large festivals. Regardless of the size of his audience, he has a very special talent of making these big venues feel intimate and leaving his listeners spellbound. He is a natural live performer who immediately connects with his audience, holding them in the palm of his hand from his very first note to his last. This is a concert not to be missed. (Please note that this is a standing event)

The Emperor's New Clothes

The Emperor's New Clothes
We are delighted to present Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Emperor’s New Clothes’, Illyria’s cheekiest show ever! Based on the timeless Hans Christian Andersen story, Illyria first performed the show in 2000 when it was Critic’s Choice at the Edinburgh Fringe festival and attracted multiple 5-star reviews on a sellout UK tour. The Emperor is a lovely man, but he’s not the best judge of char­acter. What keeps him sane is the monthly Grand Parade at which he wears his newest outfit. When two swindlers offer him the ability to identify competence by making him clothes which only the wise can see, what price will he have to pay? Will he end up losing his crown jewels? When someone spins a yarn must everyone be taken in? Illyria, now in their 26th season, return with one of the most famous cautionary tales ever told. As in many of Hans Christian Andersen’s stories, beneath the tale’s fancy clothes lies something more meaningful; human weak­nesses are satirised mercilessly; a capacity for loving is the highest value. There are larger-than-life characters, and an ending that will leave you laughing helplessly. [NB – there is NO nudity in the production. Although one of the actors may be a little chilly…)
