Beat The Drum is a commemoration of the First World War in songs, stories and images.


The show is a musical treat, backed and enlivened with stories and tales and supported by projected images and video.


The show has lots of songs and music (all performed completely live) and also uses a large screen to project images.


We tell stories of the Great War, using Pvt. Michael Heaviside VC as a reference point and ‘guide’. The show treats the subject with great respect, but certainly is not a sombre occasion - it contains plenty of audience involvement and a good few smiles along the way.


Tickets £3.00

They recreate entirely live material which spans four decades, from futurist/nostalgic art rock, through classic standards to sophisticated adult-oriented rock. Their aim is to give the audience a fabulously entertaining evening.

Very high quality musicianship and a wonderful Bryan Ferry look and sound-alike in the person of singer Kevin Hackett, combine to do just that.
