Our Gala concert surveys well-known music from the Baroque era in a musical feast of great composers. At the heart of the programme are two works of Bach, the fourth Brandenburg Concerto and first Orchestral Suite both of which demonstrate a composer at the height of his powers. Handel’s Water Music, here in arrangement, written for King George the First’s progress on a barge down the Thames is a colourful and energetic work whilst Vivaldi’s ‘Spring’ from the Four Seasons, written for the girls of the Convent School in Venice, brings the Italian style to proceedings in this ever-popular violin concerto. The music of Telemann completes this mighty handful of composers played by the musicians of Convivio, one of the UK’s newest and most exciting Period Instrument ensembles.

Bach Orchestral Suite no. 1
Handel Excerpts from ‘The Water Music.’
Vivaldi ‘Spring’ from ‘The Four Seasons.’
Telemann Concerto for Recorder & Bassoon
Bach Brandenburg Concerto no 4

After earning his spurs on the UK comedy circuit Lee became the warm-up man for many TV shows including Have I Got News For You?  Although he had no sporting prowess and he knew next to nothing about football, Lee appeared as a regular panellist in the first five series of They Think It’s All Over during which he won over close to 12 million viewers each week with his quick witted banter. 

Lee's other TV credits include presenting Shark Tank, Saturday Live, Salvage Squad and The Warehouse, and guest appearances on The Stand Up Show and Have I Got News For You. Lee was the creator of Bring Me the Head of Light Entertainment, which ran for five series on Channel 5 between 1997 and 2000. On radio, Lee has guested on The Steve Wright Show, Euromix, Two Men and a Transmitter and The Robert Elms Show. He was team captain on Hold The Front Page. He also presented Wriggling with Eels, a study of Cockney comedians for BBC Radio 4.

In 2000, Lee decided to semi-retire and concentrate on running his comedy venue, the Backyard Comedy Club in London's Bethnal Green, acting as resident compere. His touring shows include ‘Man v Woman’, ‘Too Scared to Leave the House’, Things That Make You Go Aaarggh’ and ‘Comedy Show No.9’ which began in 2016 and was extended into 2017 due to great demand.

Still a regular at the Backyard Comedy Club and elsewhere around the club scene. Lee is preparing for a brand new tour to start in 2018, 'Mucking About'. Lee is also organising a series of comedy nights around Kent called 'The Local Comedy Club'.

A BLOCKBUSTER, ADVENTURE AND ROM COM ROLLED INTO ONE

Desert Island Flicks sees two leading ladies reimagine, remake and spoof the most memorable movie moments of all time, taking on all the lead roles, stunts, and special effects!

From timeless classics to modern day marvels, the show celebrates how iconic characters and thrilling plot twists have captured imaginations the world over, bringing people together to laugh, cry, and cheer along in a room full of strangers.

Somewhere between a dance performance, sketch show, a night at the movies and an epic game of charades, Desert Island Flicks shines a spotlight on life lessons learnt from the big screen, all set to a sensational soundtrack.

Spiltmilk Dance have been sticking a big fat ray of sunshine into the world of contemporary performance since 2006. As a company, they are fascinated by the things within popular culture that unite people from different walks of life; the trends we follow, the food we eat, the songs we listen to and the dances we do on a night out.

In January 2008, Humphrey Lyttelton celebrated sixty years as a bandleader, leading a band which he ranked as one of the very best of his career.  It’s hallmark is versatility,reflected in a repertoire which extends from early traditional to modern by way of Ellington and Basie. Humphrey died in April 2008, but the band bearing his name continues to play to appreciative audiences around the country.

The band’s range is also shown by the cast-list of artists whom it has accompanied on disc or in special presentations over the years,among them instrumentalists Buck Clayton and Buddy Tate and singers Jimmy Rushing, Big Joe Turner, Marie Knight, Elkie Brooks,Helen Shapiro and Stacey Kent. Perhaps surprising is an appearance on a CD by the esoteric pop group Radiohead.

The band has had many distinguished arrangers, including Kenny Graham, Buck Clayton, Eddie Harvey and Pete Strange, whom Humph introduced on-stage as ‘our staff arranger’. Not to be forgotten are Humph’sown compositions, of which he recorded well over two hundred, including ‘the medley of his hit’, Bad Penny Blues.

It’s little surprise that the prevailing reaction from audiences was ‘We never thought a jazz concert could have such variety!’

The most important ingredients are, of course, the musicians, all stars in their own right! 

Tony Fisher– Trumpet

Mick Foster –Baritone Sax, Tenor Sax and Clarinet

Jimmy Hastings – AltoSax, Soprano Sax, Clarinet and Flute

Ray Wordsworth –Trombone

Adrian Macintosh –Drums

John Rees-Jones –Double Bass

What they’re saying

The team were simply brilliant! They calmed my nerves, made sensible suggestions and were extremely efficient. Nothing was too much trouble and I think the success of the event was largely due to their experience and professionalism. I will be recommending the Alexander Centre for any similar events.
