Edgelarks creators, duo Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin are a leading – BBC Folk Award winning – force of roots and acoustic music.  This special concert gives you a first glimpse of a set of completely new songs and tunes. Stories of wonder from the natural world; tales of rejoicing and long lost returns; and simple thanksgiving for their own surroundings and place in the landscape. Informed by world rhythms, British folk roots, and the duo’s penchant for making as much noise as possible with only two people, their music is an upbeat celebration, an incitement to hope.

“bravely original” The Guardian

“quite brilliant” Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2

A welcome return for Live Wire Theatre (When The Eye Has Gone; Hands Up for Jonny Wilkinson’s Right Boot) with a new show based on the epic true story of England cricket star Chris Lewis’s catastrophic fall from grace. Lewis seemed on the verge of greatness when he was named England’s International Cricketer of the Year in 1994, but his life lay in ruins when he was sentenced to 13 years in prison for smuggling cocaine into the UK. This show charts the extraordinary journey that took Lewis from the brink of despair to a profound moral awakening.

Followed by a Q&A session with Chris Lewis and RoughHouse Theatre Director Shane Morgan.

“Brimming with charisma and honesty.” ★★★★ The Stage (on When The Eye Has Gone)
