A unique opportunity to see two fantastic musicians performing together.
Among guitarists and critics, Woody Mann is considered a modern master. While the blues are his touchstone, he seems to draw inspiration from every direction, blending a myriad influences with ease and grace.
Having survived the threat of demolition in 1979 for a rapidly abandoned road scheme, the Tivoli will celebrate eighteen successful years in November 2011. Following a lengthy campaign to save the building, restoration could finally begin. All through 1993 volunteers worked long and hard to get the building into a fit state to open to the public. The Tivoli now has a permanent team who give their time to ongoing maintenance and further improvement of the facilities.
The Tivoli was built in 1936 as a cine/theatre and the tradition of showing both films and live stage shows continues to the present day. Big audiences for major shows were traditional at the Tivoli and the theatre has once again achieved the status of a major 500 seat venue. Local people enjoy the finest and latest films available and with full surround sound. The Tivoli is justly proud that for a theatre of its size it has brought productions to this area which would not have been thought possible back in 1993. The feedback from artistes and agents backs up the claim to this phenomenal success.
The Tivoli Theatre would not be what it is today without its army of volunteers. Thanks to them and their professional attitude, the Theatre is alive and as well as can be expected.
Please check availability of tickets and confirm date / start times with the organiser before setting out, as sometimes changes are unavoidable - thank you.
