The Stoller Hall Manchester: Wind in the Willows & Lucy Rose #Review

The Stoller Hall Manchester: Wind in the Willows & Lucy Rose – Review: June 2019

The Stoller Hall concert venue based in Chetham’s School of Music, is right in the heart of Manchester city centre.

David Threlfall, star of Shameless and direct from the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Don Quixote, performed the central role of Mr Badger in this wonderful Wind in the Willows adaptation by Neil brand with Stephen Threlfall as the conductor.

Neil Brand’s marvellous musical adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s children’s classic, The Wind in the Willows which was originally created as a radio drama by BBC Radio 4, follows the exciting and entertaining tales of Badger, Mole, Rat, Toad and friends.

Classic, charming and a sheer delightfully funny and fantastic delivery, of characterful river tales, trials and tribulations.  Plenty of gasps and giggles given even more oomph with live music, talented singers and scripts acted out with love.

An intriguing, interesting and immersive production.

SJM Concerts presented Lucy Rose with support act Samantha Crain.  The lovely Lucy Rose a Warwickshire-born singer-songwriter who describes coming out of this year as one of the hardest times of her life.

Lucy used this experience and emotions to create her upcoming album titled No Words Left, created alongside friend and producer Tim Bidwell at his home studio in Brighton, that will be released on the 22nd of March through Communion Records, which she stated, “For a period I was like, should I call the album Everyone Needs A Therapist or something”

The gig alongside her sensational support act Samantha Crain was an absolute triumph.

Lovely Lucy Rose has an honesty and integrity within her voice, a natural raw talent which immerses you within her performance to feel and capture emotions you didn’t even know you had.

Thank you for reading 😊

  2. This sounds like an event that was a little bit different. I like the sound of the wind in the willows, and am intrigued. They looked smaller too, something I think I’d enjoy them more for being
