September at St David’s Hall
Frankie Boyle & Francesa Martinez,
Katie Price, Jon Richardson,
Texas, Dr Hook, Neil Sedaka,
The Overtones & Much More!
THE summer holidays may be over, but there’s still plenty to get excited about at St David’s Hall throughout September! We’ve got cutting-edge comedy, an orchestral accompaniment to a magical movie, an evening with a gorgeous glamour model, plus music from a few rock and pop legends including the nation’s favourite vocal harmony group. Plus, there’s even a bit of wrestling - spandex and suplexes guaranteed!
We’ve got some exciting news for you this month too as The Gin Lounge opens on the fourth floor on Friday 1 September! This lavish setting is open for all evening auditorium performances with a mouth-watering selection of over 30 gins, premium spirits, cocktails, wines, craft beers and champagnes. The Queens of Comedy (Fri 1 Sept) may now be sold out, but the lucky people who booked will be the first to sample its delights!
There’s more laughs to be had elsewhere too as Frankie Boyle & Francesca Martinez (Sat 9 Sept) join forces for a daring double-bill in aid of local cause Lincoln’s Legs. You’ll need to be quick though as tickets are selling fast! Likewise, there’s only single seats left for Jon Richardson (Thurs 28 Sept), but there’s more availability for his second Old Man tour-date on Sunday 1 October. Plus, teenagers will love the OTT rants of YouTube sensation, Miranda Sings (Mon 25 Sept).
The big names don’t stop there either. Understandably, there’s very limited availability for Texas (Mon 11 Sept), Neil Sedaka (Weds 20 Sept) and Dr Hook (Weds 27 Sept). Yet, you can relive some equally iconic music with the terrific tributes in Whitney: Queen of the Night (Sat 17 Sept) and ELO Again (Sat 23 Sept). There’s also a visit from the nation’s favourite vocal harmony group, The Overtones (Fri 22 Sept), and 80s icons Go West (Sat 30 Sept) are back with their brand of perfect pop.
Folk fans are in for a treat too as the new Roots Unearthed season starts with virtuoso guitarist Martin Simpson (Tues 19 Sept). Also performing in the L3 Lounge is Cardiff’s own Capital City Jazz Orchestra (Tues 26 Sept), who return with a helping hand from the supremely talented trombonist Gordon Campbell. Elsewhere, the autumn and winter Lunchtime Concerts series begins with violin and piano duo Francina Moll Salord & Anna Szałucka (Tues 26 Sept), which comes with a ‘Pay What You Will’ price-tag.
For another dose of nostalgia, why not try Oz with Orchestra (Sun 10 Sept)? The 65-strong Welsh National Opera Orchestra perform a stunning accompaniment to the magical movie The Wizard of Oz complete with original vocals from the legendary Judy Garland. Don’t miss a host of free family-friendly pre-concert activities too as the National Concert Hall of Wales is transformed into the Emerald City!
Similarly fun for all ages is the Superstars of Welsh Wrestling (Sat 2 Sept), who storm the Hall for another awe-inspiring, death-defying night of piledrivers and powerslams! Equally muscle-bound are the best bodybuilders around in the UKBFF Paul Grant Welsh Championships (Sun 3 Sept) and The Dreamboys (Thurs 21 Sept) with their hottest show yet.
And talking of sultry, don’t miss the opportunity to get a rare glimpse of the real lady behind the showbiz headlines in An Audience with Katie Price (Fri 8 Sept)!
Whatever you choose, you can’t lose at St David’s Hall!
