                                                                  The Kreisler Story

Suffused with storytelling fantasy and un-brideld virtuosity RÖHN takes us on a journey through The Golden era of  violin playing into the grand concert halls of old Vienna. These evocative showpieces  from the Golden age of 20's and 30's, makes for a virtuostic and compelling evening. 

Daniel Röhn is considered one of the most unique characters in violin playing today. His highly entertaining stage persona, his “terrifyingly brilliant playing as if scaling a sheer cliff“ (Simon Manning), confirmed in a line of scintillating recordings, have earned him an almost legendary status  among the best of past and present masters.  "A sensational player as technically mellifluous as  he is interpretively beguiling" The Strad

                                Kiss & Tell Cabaret 


Melinda Hughes and Jeremy Limb write brilliantly crafted pastiches. Their original risqué songs have their roots firmly planted in Weimar Cabaret. They have performed at the Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh Fringe as well as Cadogan Hall, Pizza on the Park, The Metropolitan Room New York, Crazy Coqs, The Pheasantry and many private parties.

Clear diction means that every syllable tells, and she’s a convincing actress, able to sound vampish, bored, seductive and upper class as each song demands.

Hughes delivers the lines with a cut glass accent ... Savagely trenchant. Hughes is pretty good at smouldering too, and has a comic gift. Classical Iconoclast

                            Bounder & Cad



Bounder & Cad: the raffish cabaret duo that Downing St tried to censor-
until their jazzy tunes had the PM dancing in his socks...
Bespoke comedy songs and parodies, written to order. Guaranteed to tickle funny-bones.
Swingin’ jazz accompaniment on piano, double-bass and drums. 

They have entertained two princes, two PMs, and Tim Henman.


                     The Perfect Picnic


Set to the music of Mozart and with a champagne sparkling libretto 'The Perfect Picnic' is a hilarious romp combining elements of theatre and opera to produce a quintessentially English tale of love and misunderstanding at a summer's Opera Gala in the park.

Tim Armstrong-Taylor and Ian Bloomfield serve up a wonderful smorgasbord of beautiful singing, comedy and drama in this unique piece of 'Opera Theatre.'

Neither an opera nor a play this entertainment demands a new category of its own.
