Wilton’s Music Hall announces details for upcoming season

Date Posted: 28/06/2016

Wilton’s Music Hall in London has announced its upcoming entertainment season; highlights between August and December will include appearances from Sadie Frost and Camille O’Sullivan.

The venue, which reopened last September following four years of closure and a renovation project, will shine a spotlight on live music and bespoke theatre productions.

One highlight will be the appearance of English actress Sadie Frost in a play called Britten in Brooklyn, running 31st August to 17th September.

The production is set in 1940s Brooklyn, New York City, and focuses on the bohemian lifestyle of Benjamin Britten, WH Auden, Carson McCullers and Gypsy Rose Lee during World War Two. It’s based on true events, and will be a world premiere, running for 21 performances.

Another don’t-miss for groups will be the debut of Irish musician Camille O’Sullivan. Performing between 22nd and 26th November, O’Sullivan’s show will be dedicated to the music of songwriter Jacques Brel – her own source of personal inspiration as a musician.

For something light-hearted, audiences can enjoy singing along to sea shanty band The Salts, who will be joined by singer Chris Ricketts for an evening of singalongs in Songs from The Sea on 4th August.

And in the week following, international cabaret star Miss Hope Springs will be entertaining with a one-woman show. Funny tales from her love life interspersed with music can be enjoyed between 9th and 11th August.

Further season highlights towards the end of the year include the showing of a musical called Floyd Collins, which will run between 21st September and 15th October.

The production tells a story of a cave explorer who becomes trapped under ground; it’s described as a touching story of friendship and survival.

Groups might also like to book tickets to see the Nina Simone-inspired Black Is The Color of My Voice, running between 25th and 29th October, or Duet; a love story told through interactive theatre on 2nd and 3rd November.

Wrapping up the season will be a pantomime called Mother Goose, from 2nd to 31st December. Groups are encouraged to prepare for booing, cheering, laughter and 400 year-old stuffing jokes.
