Steeleye Span

Theatre Severn

Monday 8th April 2019

 It is inconceivable but nevertheless true that Steeleye Span are this year, celebrating fifty years in the music industry. Yes that’s fifty years.

Over the...

The Classic Rock Show

Theatre Severn


The Rock fan’s ultimate juke box this show is billed as. One might disagree because in a juke box one knows who the artist is..no such luck here.
