Maddy Prior & Forgotten Lands (SOLD OUT)

The instantly recognisable voice of Steeleye Span, Maddy Prior began singing in her early teens and hasn’t stopped since. Forming a duo with Tim Hart in the mid-sixties, the pair were part of the debut line up of Steeleye and remained with the band until the early eighties, when Hart was forced into semi-retirement. A brief sabbatical after the well received Time album aside, Prior has been the one of band’s constants – her voice guiding them through a variety of styles, from her beloved traditional music to rock and pop.

Outside of the band, Maddy has a long history of collaborations and a successful solo career. Forming the Silly Sisters with June Tabor at the height of Steeleye’s success in the seventies, her work has included a delightful series of albums and tours with The Carnival Band, the trio Maddy & The Girls and appearances with many of the musicians who she has inspired over the years – including The Levellers, Hannah James, Rev Hammer and Benji Kirkpatrick – as well as hosting singing workshops at her Cumbrian home. Whatever the project, however, it is Maddy’s voice that is the clarion call.

Maddy current project takes her ‘Forgotten Lands’ show out on tour in 2024.

Maddy Prior and Rose-Ellen Kemp (her daughter and fellow singing teacher) are embarking on some shows around the UK joined by musicians Andrew Sinclair (Steeleye Span guitarist) and Ruth Elder (viola and piano).

This is a unique opportunity to experience this exciting and brand new performance by one of the UK’s undisputed musical legends.

Book a table for pre-concert dining

Acapela Studio provides pre-concert dining between 6.00pm and 7.30pm from our wood burning pizza oven. To view the current menu visit here.

Please purchase your concert tickets first before booking a table. We will not accept any table bookings that do not have a corresponding ticket purchase.

Then return to the event page to book your table, by selecting the date of your event, number of diners and time you require table. The times shown are the only vacancies left.  Please complete your email and phone number as this is required to ensure your table is allocated. You will receive confirmation of your booking by email and text.

If on the date you have chosen no tables are available - no times will be shown and the booking system will revert you back to todays date - PLEASE ENSURE YOU BOOK THE CORRECT DATE!

PLEASE NOTE THE VENUE RELIES ON THE INCOME FROM DINING TO ENSURE WE CAN BOOK ALL THE GREAT ACTS PERFORMING.

Income from the provision of pizzas is very important to the venue and if you have booked a table it is a requirement that all people sat at tables order food - a salad alternative is available to pizzas. Please do ensure that all individuals will be ordering on your table - if  this is not the case please cancel your table so others who are looking to dine can do so. Our apologies to raise this but recently we have had many tables (some very large) where less than 50% of those sat at tables have ordered food. Financially this is a real problem to the sustainability of the venue. 

  • All seating at tables must purchase a pizza - so please do not book a table if everyone is not eating.
  • Please ensure that you arrive 10 minutes before the time slot allocated to order your pizzas prior to your booking time.
  • Tables not seated within 15 minutes of the allocated time may be lost and allocated to other audience members wishing to order pizzas.
  • If you wish to book a table for 6 or more please email info@acapela.co.uk

Please note that all of our pizzas are made fresh to order and cooked in an authentic wood-fired oven. It may take up to 45 minutes to be served during busy periods.

IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO BOOK A TABLE YOU CAN STILL ORDER PIZZAS ON THE NIGHT (USUALLY ON BUSY NIGHTS NO LATER THAN  7.15PM) AND WE WILL SERVE THEM TO YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE SAT IN THE VENUE - IN A PIZZA BOX.
