Featuring

Alfie Boe

Alfie Boe appearing at this event

Alfred Giovanni Roncalli Boe was born in Blackpool to opera loving parents, with his Mother from Co. Mayo and his father from Norway. In this short time he has moved from being a Car Mechanic to an award winning Broadway star. His enchanting voice has captured the hearts of audiences and critics on both sides of the Atlantic. Alfie has moved further away from his traditional operatic repertoire on recent recordings and has never sounded so coolly contemporary, applying his extraordinary voice to a soulful set of country and blues, folk and gospel, standards and originals such as, ‘Georgia On My Mind’, ‘You’ve Got A Friend’ and ‘Glory, Glory Hallelujah’. His repertoire draws on the full range of his musical interests, from pop to rock to classical to musical theatre.

Suggs appearing at this event

Suggs made his name as the frontman with '80s chart-toppers Madness and has taken that wacky zaniness with him through a career as an actor (a lead character who exploded in the first ten minutes!) and TV compere (small-screen karaoke anyone?). 'Suggs is an effortlessly engaging raconteur' (Simon Price, Sunday Independent) '... the charisma of an accomplished actor... the timing of a veteran standup' (Mark Lawson, The Guardian) 'Very funny, and delivered with a sense of timing and phrasing that many common-or-garden comics could learn much from' (Dominic Cavendish, The Daily Telegraph).
