Tickets: Adults £23.50, Friends, Students and ES40s £21.00.

Their records have a timeless quality and, some 55 years on, The Manfreds, with original front man, Paul Jones, will perform many of their hits, including ‘Do Wah Diddy Diddy’, one of the most popular and instantly recognisable songs of the ‘60’s, along with a mix of Jazz and Blues covers and tracks from their individual solo albums.

Paul Jones, with his unique harmonica sound, will be joined by Mike Hugg on keyboards, Tom McGuinness on guitar, Rob Townsend on drums, Marcus Cliffe on bass, and Simon Currie on saxophone/ flute.

Tickets: Adults £18.00, Friends £17.50, Students and ES40s £10.00

The Brand New Tribute Show celebrating the Life of West Country Legend Adge Cutler, ‘ the King of the Wurzels’ and ‘Bard of Avonmouth’, as seen through the eyes of West Country Comedy Star and Panto favourite ANDY FORD.

The show is bursting with all the popular Wurzel songs together with a gurt dollop of West Country humour from Andy who played Adge  to critical acclaim in the 2017 Comedy Musical ‘Drink Up Thy Cider’ at the Redgrave Theatre in Bristol.

We trace Adge’s story from the Streets of Nailsea North Somerset to National and International fame, with more than a sprinkling of popular Cider Songs in there for good measure!! There had never been anything like Adge before…. He was the pioneer of localised musical humour prior to Billy Connolly, Jasper Carrot, Mike Harding or Max Boyce. He became a West Country Superstar and is still loved today 45 years after his tragic death in a car crash near the Severn Bridge.

The story is interspersed with hilarious gags, comedy sketches and audience participation; there won’t be a dry beer glass in the house as Andy takes us on a rollercoaster ride of pure West Country Madness…Oooh Arrr!

The show features a live Band of 4 musicians and Andy Ford all in Wurzel Style costumes with the odd hay bale and Milk Churn or 2 for decoration! It consists of two halves, 45mins for Act One and 60mins approx. for Act Two with an interval of 20 mins.

It’s time to celebrate, so get on board this West Country Special…. Drink up thee Cider…. and whatever you do…Don’t tell I tell ‘e.
