Neil Oliver

***‘The Story of The British Isles in 100 places’***

 

Neil was born to love Great Britain. During his 20 years travelling to every corner, and whilst filming BBC2’s ‘Coast’, he’s fallen in love all over again. From north to south, east to west it cradles astonishing beauty. The human story here is a million years old, and counting. The tolerant, easy-going peace we enjoy has been hard won and the places Neil’s seen have given him a unique view and understanding of British history.

Hear in his amusing and entertaining way what it all means to him, and why we need to cherish and celebrate our wonderful countries.

Wilko Johnson

Following a remarkable recovery from a diagnosis of terminal cancer, Wilko Johnson the original Dr Feelgood guitarist , actor (Game of Thrones character Ser Ilyn Payne) and all-round national treasure has enjoyed a rousing return to the live arena, including a number 1 album with Roger Daltrey (Going Back Home), a sold-out show at The Royal Albert Hall to mark his 70th birthday and, most recently, the release of Blow Your Mind, his first album of new material in decades.  Wilko is famed for his blistering chop-chord strumming action (the ‘stab’, as he describes it), a technique inspired by his admiration of the late Pirates guitarist Mick Green. With this electrifying sound, his trademark black-suited, scowling look and his characteristic strut, Wilko became one of the guitar heroes of the 1970s and beyond, not to mention one of rock ’n’ roll’s most extraordinary characters. He, alongside his original Feelgood bandmates, is also widely acknowledged as a forefather of punk on both sides of the Atlantic, fans ranging from Joe Strummer to Blondie. Following a stint with Ian Dury & The Blockheads in the 1980s, he formed the Wilko Johnson Band, with Blockheads bassist Norman Watt-Roy featuring former Blockhead Dylan Howe on drums, the trio is known as one of the most exciting rhythm-and-blues bands in the world today. Special guest 'Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure' John Otway. This is a 16+ event. You may be asked to prove your age and if you’re unable to show valid ID, you may be refused entry. Valid ID includes passports, driving licences, 16+ Zip Oyster photocards and CitizenCards. Photocopies will not be accepted.
