We’ve just returned from our summer festivals tour of Oz & Armonico Drink to Music which included the privilege of being artists-in-residence at Harrogate Festival and a trip to beautiful Buxton. Our final concert before the summer break was at Lichfield Festival where we found we had a surprise visitor: the Spandau Ballet and I’m A Celebrity star, Tony Hadley, was at the Swinfen Hall Hotel event having recently become a patron of the Lichfield Festival. He thoroughly enjoyed the evening of music, wine and anecdotes.
We’re working hard on our big creative project of the autumn, a new musical adaptation of the fantasy saga Beowulf. So we were thrilled when Strictly Come Dancing’s newest stars AJ Pritchard and Chloe Hewitt agreed to lead a dance workshop for 15 pupils of St Elizabeth’s Primary School in Coventry.
