In 1985 Barbara’s single ‘I Know Him So Well,’ recorded with Elaine Paige and taken from the musical ‘Chess’, was released. It reached number one in the UK and went on to become a top 10 hit around the world, eventually selling more than 900,000 copies.

Further hits followed, but in the early 1990s Barbara began to move away from pop and back towards her roots in folk and acoustic music, which she has continued to this day.

She will be joined on stage by Nick Holland for a show that promises to be one the highlights of the season.

Another highlight sure to delight will be award winning music from The Sons of Pitches - winners of the BBC2 TV series ‘The Naked Choir.’ They will be taking to the stage in May.

More live music will be on offer from a diverse range of genres including 80s alternative rock band The Icicle Works, 60s icons The Troggs, country music veteran Raymond Froggatt, and 21-year-old Blues maestro Laurence Jones.
