The choir is part of a growing network of Military Wives Choirs across the forces community worldwide and have recently recorded an album with 1105 voices of all these ladies. This is due for release on the 29th June this year, in commemoration of the end of WW1.

The Rollin’ Clones

Friday 2nd November 7.30pm

Rollin-Clones-Poster

Keith Richards cannot be killed by conventional weapons” – Del Preston, Wayne’s World 2.

We’re choosing to believe this is true. How else could you explain the fact that despite fifty years of death, drugs, destruction and falling out of coconut trees, the greatest show on earth is still on the road?

While not quite of the same vintage, The Rollin’ Clones have been entertaining crowds across the country for over seventeen years, distilling the show down to a pure hit of rock ‘n’ roll, with a chaser of sequinned Glam.

From the early days of the rhythm and blues, through to the excesses of the 70s, The Rollin’ Clones’ rock ‘n’ roll show is a faithful interpretation of the biggest band ever’s greatest hits, delivered with a smirk and a wink, recalling the mischief making of Mr Jagger himself and remaining true to the spirit of the originals.
