Hull Truck Theatre

Swing your way into spring at Hull Truck Theatre

Hull Truck Theatre will be humming this spring with the sound of music from all over the world.

Music from some of the world’s greatest icons, including Elvis, Cole Porter and David Bowie, is heading to the Hull theatre for a fantastic spring programme.

On Thursday 21 March, award winning jazz vocalist and Radio 2 presenter Clare Teal joins her Trio for a brand new show with standards from the grand masters of the Great American Song Book, Cole Porter and Rodgers & Hart, to witty and urbane song stylists of the 50’s & 60’s, Cy Coleman, Carolyn Leigh and Dave Brubeck, while also drawing inspiration from more contemporary writers and originals.

The following evening, acclaimed singer-songwriter Elio Pace returns to Hull Truck Theatre with an intimate and completely unique concert honouring his childhood musical idol, Elvis Presley. The concert features many Elvis Presley classics as well as some rarely-heard and forgotten gems.

In April, the theatre welcomes the legendary Grimethorpe Colliery Band, winner of 16 Brass In Concert Championship titles and four times National Champion Brass Band of Great Britain. With diverse noted concert performances including those at the FIFA World Cup, BAFTA Awards, BBC Proms, Eurovision and London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony, the band has also been nominated at the BAFTA awards for its contributions to the global hit movie Brassed Off, for which Grimethorpe was the focal point.

In May, Turn & Face The Strange, the sell-out multi-media show about Hull rock legend Mick Ronson, arrives at the theatre. Written by Garry Burnett and Made in Hull writer Rupert Creed, the show features a live rock band, a classical string quartet, film projection and storytelling.

The stellar line-up of talent includes rock musicians who played with Mick Ronson and David Bowie, with Keith ‘Ched’ Cheesman (The Rats) John Cambridge (The Rats & The Hype), John Bentley (Squeeze), alongside Kristian Eastwood, Bobby Joyce & Rachael Jarvis.
