A Celebration of SIMON AND GARFUNKEL
Tim Chu and Ian Bailey are two talented professional singer-songwriters from the North West of England.
They have grown up listening to Simon & Garfunkel’s music with both the composition and vocal blend having a strong influence on their respective professional careers.
After years of busy individual touring schedules both Tim and Ian have now found the time to concentrate on this venture delivering the music of Simon and Garfunkel in their own unique way that also honours the original recordings, without falling into the regular tribute act category. There are no costumes, wigs or make up! Just two great musicians producing an ambient collection of some of Simon & Garfunkel’s much loved hits.

THE ROAD TO NAB END
By William Woodruff
Adapted by Philip Goulding
A true taste of Lancashire, 'The Road To Nab End' chronicles the early life of William Woodruff, who grew up in Lancashire through the turbulent times of a crippling economy, poverty and social unrest of the 1920s.
What makes this play particularly emotive and powerful is that we experience these historic events through Woodruff’s childhood reflections.
