Maintaining Covid Measures

Please note that we plan to keep COVID measures in place over the summer, including social distanced seating and asking staff and customers to wear a mask in our building. See more detail on our Visit With Confidence page.

Following the success of his Sony album, which reached No 1 in the UK Classical Album charts, comes Alistair McGowan’s new show, combining his talents as master impressionist and comedian with his new-found talent as a classical pianist!

Join Alistair as he plays classical gems by Glass, Chopin, Gershwin, Grieg, Debussy, Tiersen and Satie – expect a lot of beautiful music (with the odd mistake!) and more than a sprinkling of his trademark impressions.

The event was originally on sale for 15 September 2020, but due to the coronavirus pandemic was moved to 30 March 2021, and rescheduled again to 18 May 2022.

ART31

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
