Alexander O'Neal

Thursday 2nd November at 7:30pm

Alexander O’Neal is of course a soul legend.

Reputedly the best pure singer to come from the '80s soul era' releasing a 'string of memorable hits' that are STILL broadcast as 'radio requests' and played at literally thousands of events around the world including: 'Fake' – 'Criticize' - 'If you were here tonight' - 'Saturday love' - 'Never knew love like this' - 'Sunshine' - 'Secret Lovers' + many more.

His album 'Hearsay' sold nearly a million copies in the UK alone, and to this day he still holds the record as the only performer to 'sell out' for SIX consecutive nights at Londons Wembley Arena. This soul man STILL has an undying passion to perform...and his 'live shows' reflect that.

A variety show for Mental Awareness

An evening of superb variety entertainment for an excellent and much needed local cause!
Book today, brighten up a dark January evening and have a great night out, raising funds for local not-for-profit groups which support people with mental health problems alongside NHS teams and help raise awareness of the fact that mental health issues can affect absolutely anyone, from any background, in any profession, at any time. We need to lose the stigma associated with mental health and accept that it's not something that should bring judgement on the sufferer but is an illness which deserves treatment without bias, just the same as any physical condition. The money raised from ticket sales and the raffle will be distributed to groups working with people suffering with mental health issues in the UHMBT area.

The following amazing acts have given their time and trouble at no cost in order to support mental health awareness and groups, some have agreed to perform as they themselves, or friends and relatives, have experienced many of the issues addressed by the various teams in our area.


Danny Matthews - The Bay Radio’s ever-cheerful breakfast and Solid Gold Sunday host will compere the evening for us, poor Winston and Lulu have to stay at home…

Holly Lovelady - a delightful singer/songwriter from Kendal who has been recognised by BBC Introduces 2016 and 2017. She has performed at many, many events in the local area including the Christmas Lights Switch On in Kendal, Lancaster and Morecambe.

Joe McCorriston - an independent Lancaster-born Singer-Songwriter, who has earned a reputation for his upbeat energetic live acoustic show. Joe is playing in Spain the week before and returning for the show!

He has supported TV acts such as Jimmy Cricket and Tim Vine, often performing on TV and radio.


Mazza Vee - a multi talented artist and performance poet from Liverpool/Lancaster, who has a remarkable way of expressing emotion in verse. Mazza will perform a poem addressing a mirror on stage and express the emotion many of us find difficult to deal with or explain.


Together - for one night only, a group of patients and local GPs, NHS staff/students and representatives from local support groups will perform I Love My Life, a Robbie Williams song, which has a powerful message of getting through the difficult times with the support of others and looking forward to a time when life is more enjoyable. If you are a patient, former patient, NHS staff or from a local support group and you would like to join us please email socialease@yahoo.com we’d love to have you, being good is not a requirement it’s all about being together!

We've Only Just Begun - a Celebration of the Life and Music of Karen Carpenter

Wednesday 23rd May at 7:30pm

Karen was the voice of the multi-hit making group The Carpenters who along with her brother Richard, scored an unprecedented 17 consecutive billboard US top ten hits. The timeless quality of the Carpenters music makes it as relevant today as when they scored their first UK hit with Close to you in 1970.

 

Karen Carpenter had a unique voice, so unique in fact that it has proven almost impossible to duplicate its deep smoky emotional edge, creating that uniqueness that is so hard to perfect. Now for the very first time in over 30 years the voice that melted a thousand romantic hearts lives again through Toni Lee, in this 2-hour touring concert show “We’ve Only Just Begun, the Carpenters Greatest Love Songs”.

 

“We’ve Only Just Begun” is a celebration of the Carpenter’s music and the spirit of Karen Carpenter. Every song in the show is a chart hit, brilliantly performed by vocalist Toni Lee, with her Big Band and singers. This high quality production includes an audio visual presentation.

 

So close your eyes and re-live the magic of one of the greatest female voices in pop music history as Toni Lee becomes Karen Carpenter and sings over 22 hits including Close to You, We’ve Only Just Begun, Superstar, For All we Know, Yesterday Once More, Top of the World, Jambalaya, Please Mr Postman, Only Yesterday, Solitaire, A Kind of Hush, Sweet Sweet Smile and more.
