    UTEA: NARTHEN : 8pm, Saturday 20th Jun

    From 20:00 to 22:00.     Add this to your calendar:        

    Featuring Barry Coope of Coope Boyes and Simpson, Jo Freya of Blowzabella/Moirai , Jim Causley 4 time BBC folk award nominee and Fi Fraser of The Old Fashioned/ Polka Works – this is a quartet of suburb vocal harmonies and multi-instrumentalism.

    The material of the group features “songs that will touch your heart, engage your intellect and wow your ears. Expect pith, pathos and polyphony”. Narthen is a new name for a new venture. Familiar yet shiny and new which means you get that great mix of comforting familiarity and constant surprises. I didn’t know they did that…well they do!

    Their debut Cd ‘Narthen’ was released in September 2018

    “Their debut album shows off peerless harmony singing – an excellent album of singing and playing” RnR ****

    “It’s a brilliant demonstration of the ensemble’s multi-faceted musical personality, whereupon they move effortlessly and appropriately between modes, juxtaposing pathos and heartbreak with seriously uplifting humour and historically informed commentary - This is a lively, eclectic CD from a vibrant quartet; a memorable and life-affirming set.” FolkRadio UK

    UTEA: THE SOUNDS OF SIMON : 8pm, Saturday 27th Jun

    From 20:00 to 22:00.     Add this to your calendar:        

    The Sounds of Simon is a tribute to the wonderful music of Simon and Garfunkel. The Old Friends Duo tour is how the songs are meant to be: just two voices and one guitar. This is the music of Simon and Garfunkel up close and intimate.

    Relive the classics, from Mrs Robinson, to Homeward Bound, as well as some rarely heard songs like A Most Peculiar Man, and A Poem on the Underground Wall. Paul Simon is a wonderful songwriter and this is your chance to hear these songs as they were originally performed.

    Paul and Art are played to perfection, bringing in elements of their famously fractious relationship, as well as replicating the beautiful harmonies flawlessly. This is a wonderful show filled with excellent music, nostalgia, and a genuine love for some great musicians.



    “Ben is something of an expert on Paul Simon.” - BBC The One Show

    “A world class act.” – The Hinckley Times

    “The lead singers have excellent diction, wonderfully balanced harmonies and above all a friendly approach to audience contact. What a treat to listen to live sound with perfect volume.” The Melton Times.

    “A musical feast for anyone who loves the songs of Paul Simon.” –Chris Lloyd (Talon)

    “Our own Simon and Garfunkel.” - Musician Records

    “Their harmonies were spot on.” – The Outsider

    From 20:00 to 22:00.     Add this to your calendar:        

    Tango Calor is one of the most exciting tango bands performing in the UK. The trio will take you on a journey from the night clubs of Buenos Aires to the salons of Paris with their evocative performances of traditional and contemporary tango music.

    Mirek Salmon is one of the few players of the bandoneon (Argentine concertina) in the country. He formed the group in 2016 with sensational Latin vocalist Indira Roman (Salsa UK , Roberto Pla) and Dutch jazz pianist Daan Temmink. The band has performed in tango clubs and festivals around the country and gains new fans wherever they play. They are often called on to accompany visiting artists from Argentina and have also performed the works of Astor Piazzolla with members of the Welsh National Opera. In 2018 they were invited to play at the famous La Ghironda festival in Puglia.


    “One of the best tango trios you will hear in the UK” Tango Alchemy


    “If you want dancers to be out of their seats and enjoying great music, Tango Calor really does that” Viva la Dance

    UTEA: She Stoops to Conquer at Leaf & Ground : 7:30pm (open 6pm), Saturday 25th Jul

    From 19:30 to 22:00.     Add this to your calendar:        

    Professional theatre company Rain or Shine, hailed by ‘The Stage’ as “one of the best companies touring open air theatre" are set to delight family audiences once again this summer in the stunning grounds of Leaf & Ground to bring you their production of classic period comedy She Stoops to Conquer by Oliver Goldsmith.
    Last performed by Rain or Shine back in 2002 She Stoops to Conquer is a play that leaps out of its century with a freshness and vivacity which have kept audiences laughing for over 200 years.

    This wonderful witty romp, Oliver Goldsmith's masterpiece, drives a coach and four through the manners and conventions of 18th Century England. Young Marlow is rich, handsome and single, but despite his infamous ability to charm a barmaid, he's hopelessly bashful in the presence of a society lady. When he mistakes his future father-in-law's house for an inn and his fiancée for a barmaid, we enter the pure comic territory of an eighteenth-century ‘Fawlty Towers’. The revival of this brilliantly funny comedy is scheduled for summer 2020, so pick up your petticoats, belt up your breeches, harness your horses and drive up for an evening of uproarious laughter.

    As the name suggests, Rain or Shine specialise in performing outdoors, and have - and will continue performing - in all but the very worst of weathers!
