Tickets cost £11 (£10 pre-booked), £10 (concessions) (£9 pre-booked) and children under 16 £6 (£5 pre-booked).

Chris Cranham (Tuba) and Stewart Death (Piano) are a unique duo who perform stunning innovative shows, definitely not just a tuba recital. With a great array of wind and brass instruments they are irrepressible entertainers who communicate with their audiences to provide a brilliant evening’s entertainment.

The show is a multi-instrumental extravaganza featuring instruments from all over of the world; imagine the gladiatorial Roman Cornu and a Swiss Alpine Horn - the original mobile phone - all transported to your hall. Admire the craftsmanship of the beautiful Chinese Dragon-Headed Trumpet and a pair of 6 foot high Tibetan Dungs. Contrast these with the mellow sounding Ocarina and the blaring Turkish Schnib. Marvel at the Cimbasso, Verdi's Tuba with the bell going forward.

You will hear music from classical to jazz, a Can Can dancing tubist, exploding tuba and impossible as it sounds, watch out for the opera Carmen in four and a half minutes - all will be revealed!! What's more, music is not everything. Hilarious anecdotes and informative chat also combine to give an unforgettable performance with something for everyone.
