Hackney Colliery Band

Connaught Theatre, Worthing | 1st April 2016

Hackney Colliery Band

 

One of the world’s most unique brass bands, the Hackney Colliery band, perform in Worthing on 1st April.

Since the release of Hackney Colliery Band’s eponymous debut in 2011, these brass juggernauts have blown their way into the public consciousness with their cunning cover versions and catchy original recordings.

Over the last two years the band have earned themselves an army of loyal fans and have played at some very special events. From the live collaborations with the late Amy Winehouse and more recently Eliza Doolittle to headlining Manchester Jazz and Durham Brass festivals and being the only fully live band to play at the Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics they haven’t paused for breath.

With a tongue in cheek, yet respectful, nod to the great tradition of British brass bands, Hackney Colliery Band’s influences are as diverse as the London borough that gave them their name. Mixing rock, afro-beat, hip hop, Balkan beats, contemporary jazz and soul, their latest album ‘Common Decency’ is a uniquely British take on the modern brass band sound.

Inspired by New Orleans marching bands, Balkan beats, contemporary hip-hop, dubstep and R&B, sizzling Latin brass, African polyrhythms and high-octane rock, the Hackney Colliery Band bring the UK colliery brass band tradition bang up to date. Drop in a few unexpected covers from the likes of Goldie, The Prodigy, Kanye West and even Toto, and you can be certain that an audience will have never heard anything quite like it.

The Emperor’s New Clothes

The Connaught Theatre | Sat 26- Sun 27 March.

The Emporer's New ClothesThe Emperor’s New Clothes

 

On Easter weekend much loved children’s book The Emperor’s New Clothes is brought to life on stage at the Connaught Theatre, 26-27 March.

Get ready to meet an eccentric Emperor who loves clothes more than anything! But despite a wardrobe the size of Paris, he’s run out of socks, he’s run out of pants – he hasn’t got a stitch to wear!

When two ‘tailors’ come to town with a promise to create him an outfit that’s “never been seen before”, our eccentric Emperor doesn’t quite realise the spectacle he is about to make.

Populated with puppets, music and song, this inventive and energetic production is told in true Stuff and Nonsense style; with unending energy, great storytelling and, as always, a show for all the family.

Following their sell-out shows, Goldilocks and the 3 Bears, The Elves and The Shoemaker, The Enormous Turnip and The Little Red Hen, the dazzling Stuff and Nonsense return with  this romp through a classic, eccentric tale inspired by the Muppets, Danny Kaye and good old family movies.

This new adaptation of the well-known tale, written and directed by Niki McCretton, is a brilliant mix of ingenious puppetry, music and mischievous moments for everyone in the family aged three and a lot older!

£8.50, Family of four £28
