“Nothing short of stunning!” –Lisa Schwartz, Cambridge Folk Festival
Introducing theatrical-folk-duo sensation the Sons of Town Hall. Praised by The Observer for their “seamless vocal harmonies” and their “stories of sea voyages, betrayal and desolation,” celebrated British singer/songwriter/producer Ben Parker and beloved American singer/songwriter/author David Berkeley have formed the most wonderful union. The show is three-parts concert, one-part theatre, and unlike anything else you’re likely to have experienced.
Their gorgeous harmonies, intricately finger-picked guitar lines, and poetic lyrics transport listeners across time and space to the open ocean and the wilds of the American frontier. For fans of Simon and Garfunkel, Glen Hansard, Fleet Foxes, Tom Waits, etc., that would well be worth the price of admission. But it’s the Sons of Town Hall’s performance art that sets them apart from every other act who steps onto the stage.
From the very first moment the two enter the room–often from the back and to the sound of ocean waves and screeching seagulls–in their bowler and top hats and their threadbare Victorian clothing, to their final bows, audiences are enthralled by the storytelling, the banter, the stagecraft.
Please join us for a truly unforgettable evening. You will laugh. You will cry. You will sing along.
“Amazing… equal parts care and craftsmanship, joy and sorrow, it is a splendour to behold… They simply exist on a different plane than everyone else.”
FOLK RADIO UK
“It’s part balladry, part performance art, and totally cool ….Think Simon & Garfunkel lost at sea, and you get a sense of the mythic world at play here.”
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 email@example.com
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.
