British pop’s original renaissance man Nick Lowe is in the mood to rock, taking to the road again with his long term backing band – kings of Nashville surf rock – Los Straitjackets.

Nick made his mark as a producer (Elvis Costello-Graham Parker-Pretenders-The Damned), songwriter of several classic pop songs you know by heart, and now steps out as a silver-haired, tender-hearted, sharp-tongued singer-songwriter, backed by the “Jackets”, who have delivered their trademark guitar licks to 16 albums, thousands of concerts and dozens of films and TV shows.

Their most recent album “What’s So Funny ‘Bout Peace Love & Los Straitjackets” consists of instrumental covers of Nick Lowe Songs.

Nick Lowe has turned out a fantastic string of albums and brings wit and understated excellence to every live performance. Rock and roll isn’t just a young man’s game…

The Gulbenkian reviews

“elegant and nearly devastating.”

Our work with young people

Children and Young People are at the heart of what we do, as audience members, as participants and as thought leaders.

Through our landmark ART31 project we are working with young people and partners in Kent to create new opportunities through the arts for under 25's across the county.

Below are some of our current projects focused on the development of young people.
