Saturday 29th March 8pm (Confirmed date changed from 25th January)
The TANNAHILL WEAVERS are Scotland’s beloved musical ambassadors, with scores of recordings and countless tours over forty years to their credit. Originally hailed for introducing the mighty Highland pipes in a folk-band setting, the Tannies' concerts remain forever fresh to their fans—a blend of powerful instrumentals, ballads with three part harmonies, and on-stage banter that turns the space between the songs into a show of their own.
“They've always been an exciting live act, but over the decades the Tannahill Weavers have acquired a degree of musical sophistication that places them among the most influential Celtic bands in history”.
Rob Weir- Sing Out magazine.

Trowbridge Players present: Blithe Spirit
Wednesday 7 – Saturday 10 May 7.30pm
Noel Coward’s ‘Blithe Spirit’ was a refreshingly light-hearted and witty counter to the horrors of war-torn Britain. First performed in London in 1941 it is set in the living room of Charles Condomine’s house in Kent and takes place over three days.
Researching material for his new book, Charles invites the eccentric Madame Arcati to conduct an after dinner séance. However matters do not go as expected and the spirit that is summoned disrupts the Condomine’s equable existence.Through Coward’s writing death is handled with panache and wonderful humour and even wedded bliss becomes a subject of gentle mockery in ‘Blithe Spirit’
