Cosi fan Tutte - Mozart.

Cosi fan Tutte - Mozart.

Broken Hearts and Dreams are served up in this timeless musical comedy.


How far would you go to win a bet? Egged on by a cynical friend, two men make a foolish wager on whose girlfriend will be the more faithful. What starts as a silly game quickly escalates into something more troubling, as all four lovers begin to question just how serious their relationships really are. Things really begin to heat up when a double wedding is announced, but just who will be marrying whom?


Heritage Opera returns to Nantwich Civic Hall with Mozart’s pithy morality tale, full of beautiful music and unforeseen moral dilemmas.

This performance is sung in a new English translation by a cast of 6 professional singers, accompanied by piano.


Cast includes: Nicholas Sales, Victor Sgarbi, Serenna Wagner, Sarah Helsby Hughes, Heather Heighway and Neil Balfour.

The Game

The Game

A comedy of soccer and sexual politics by the author of ‘Hobson’s Choice’


They take the National Game seriously up in Blackton, and things haven’t been going too well for the Rovers. Their glory days are well behind, they’re losing brass hand over fist, the Club’s only decent player wants to marry the Chairman’s daughter, and the Chairman wants to let him go on transfer to Blackton’s deadly rivals - though he might just need him to nobble his first match at his new club...


If some of this sounds familiar, don’t be fooled. This is Lancashire, 1914 - and where there’s muck there’s money!


By the author of ‘Hobson’s Choice’, ‘The Game’ is a fast-moving social comedy of soccer and sexual politics, set during a single Saturday afternoon in the season.


Kick-off at a quarter-to-eight each night!

Little Comets

Little Comets


Hailing from Jarrow, Little Comets are a brilliant indie rock trio who broke into the Top 40 in 2015 with their 3rd album "Hope Is Just A State Of Mind".


Their infectiously breezy songs, often with anthemic choruses, have drawn comparisons to The 1975 and Vampire Weekend, but their style is truthfully all their own and keynote tracks such as "Jennifer" and "Dancing Song" have received extensive BBC Radio 1 air play.


Little Comets have always been famed for gigging in unlikely places – in their early pre-record contract days they played spontaneously in lecture halls, on buses and trams, and only last year they became the first band to complete a gig around the Great North Run.


We're delighted they've chosen to play Words & Music, and their brand of "kitchen sink indie" (their words!) is set to give the festival a huge, inspiring, and energetic start.


Taking place at The Crown Hotel, Nantwich, doors open 7.30pm, tickets £15.


Tickets available from Nantwich Civic Hall or by calling 01270 628633.

Plus, "It Was Fifty Years Ago Today" with The Bootleg Beatles and The RLPO. Roger also has a significant birthday in November when his "New and Selected Poems" is published by Penguin.

Therapy?

Therapy?

Since first emerging from Northern Ireland at the start of the 90s and almost single handedly coining the phrase 'alternative metal', Therapy? have blazed a unique trail across UK rock.


Support slots with Teenage Fanclub, Hole, and Babes In Toyland saw the band's reputation burgeoning through 1991, and their first Top 40 album "Nurse" was quickly followed by the Mercury Prize nominated, Kerrang! Award winning "Troublegum" album, one of a string of chart albums and EPs.


Through many stylistic detours and line-up changes the band's devoted core following have kept them a major live draw, and their acoustic shows, developed in recent years, give that army of fans, plus newer listeners, a chance to rediscover the songs in smaller venues, with the band's passion and uncompromising stance undimmed.


Taking place at Nantwich Civic Hall, doors open 7.30pm, tickets £20.
