Admission includes supper and there is a licensed bar.
Former BBC Young Tradition Award Finalist, Jennifer Crook is a singer/songwriter with captivating vocals. She performed the music for the BBC David Attenborough series The Private Life of Plants, and appeared on national TV shows like BBC 1’s Pebble Mill.
Jennifer is an acknowledged virtuoso of the lever harp. As well as playing on numerous CD’s, she has performed with the English National Opera, Eddi Reader (Fairground Attraction) and her inventive harp playing caught the attention of Snow Patrol who asked her to join the band on electric harp and backing vocals throughout their “Reworked” tour.

“With a spellbinding mastery of the guitar, Will Robert is truly something special to behold. With soulful folk tones, his vocal straddles beautiful melodies that will ring in the ears for days to come.
