What’s on: Nailsworth Festival


Tickets are now available for the Nailsworth Festival.

On Saturday, May 21, Ken Wood and The Mixers will bring their own unique blend of bold, brassy soul, stomping R&B and ludicrous on-stage antics. They will be presenting “Amazing Stories of Blues and Soul” the Mixers’ very own big stage show – a breathless musical journey to discover the roots of soul. G&T Blues will provide support.

The headline act for the Festival is the Brodsky String Quartet, returning to Nailsworth on Saturday, May 28, as part of their 50th-anniversary tour. Since forming in 1972, they have retained a pre-eminent position amongst British string quartets. Liz Grand is also artist returning to the Festival, with her new one-woman show ‘Where Is Mrs Christie?” on Sunday, May 22. Then on Wednesday, May 25 the Moscow Drug Club will entertain, combining their original material with songs by the likes of Jaques Brel, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits & Eartha Kitt.
