    Poster for Beat The Drum

    Michael Heaviside was a Geordie Miner from Craghead. He became a soldier, went to war and for an extraordinary heroic adventure in May 1917, was awarded the Victoria Cross. This show follows Michael’s story and the tale of the ‘War To End All Wars’ is woven within this. Songs from the time sit alongside original music to lift the story to greater heights, and the show features stunning projected visuals which make use of archive and original graphics to provide a fascinating visual backdrop.

    Fool’s Gold are acoustic musicians Steve & Carol Robson.  Their shows combine live acoustic music, interwoven with powerful stories and projected visuals. Their shows have a strong theme and a narrative that runs through them.

    Tickets £10-£12. Booking link: Fool’s Gold: Beat The Drum - The Witham
