Eastbourne’s Winter Garden proudly hosts the 35th Summer Season of the John Mann Music Show on Thursdays 21 July, 4 August & 22 September.
The 21 July show will be presented in the Winter Garden, but with a difference, the show coincides with the staging of the Ballroom comedy drama Kiss Me Quickstep which will transform the dancefloor of the Floral Hall into a ‘Theatre in the round’ – John will be performing on this ‘stage’ which will allow audiences the rare opportunity to view this musical maestro from above as the seating will be built up around the central stage area.
John has been entertaining Eastbourne for an amazing 35 years this summer, as one of the UK’s finest organist and pianists John has had an incredible 60 year career, sharing the stage with greats including Bob Monkhouse, Arthur Askey and Max Bygraves.
Theatre’s Artistic Director Chris Jordan said, “We are delighted that after an amazing 35 years John Mann is still packing the audiences in for his afternoon shows of music at the Winter Garden. His brand of showmanship is unique to John and it’s wonderful to see how many fans regularly come to see and hear him in this beautiful venue.”
The format of the well-loved shows remains the same, John will introduce the songs with his own inimitable sense of humour and fun before his faultless presentation of a variety of songs from the 50s and 60s, along with some gentle humoured stand-up and musical impressions (think Arthur Askey and his Bee Song), come and enjoy an afternoon of classic toe-tapping musical entertainment.
The John Mann Music Show is at the Winter Gardens, Floral Hall, Eastbourne on the following Thursdays: 21 July, 4 August and 22 September at 2.30pm. Tickets priced at just £7, to book call the box office on 01323 412000 or online.
