John Mann will once again entertain audiences at the majestic Winter Garden, Floral Hall on 4 August and as a first for John, he will be performing ‘in the round’.
His 4 August 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.
It also means John will be getting creative with his comedy skits and the big reveal costume changes to take advantage of the novel 360 degree view his audience are afforded.
John’s 22 September show will be back to the usual cabaret style seating so this really is a one-off opportunity to see this talented organist and music hall entertainer up close and personal.
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: 4 August and 22 September at 2.30pm. Tickets priced at just £7, to book call the box office on 01323 412000 or online.
