IF YOU’RE looking for a great night out look no further than St David’s Hall throughout February. As usual we’ve got a healthy helping of captivating classical concerts, cracking comedy and dazzling dance to keep you entertained.
The month starts in style with a sold-out show from heavy rockers Thunder (Fri 1 Feb), whilst there’s very limited availability for both performances of Sing-a-Long-a The Greatest Showman (Sat 2 Feb). However, it’s always worth calling the Box Office and checking our social media for any late seat releases. Fear not if you missed your chance to sing your heart out with Hugh Jackman et al as there’s a further two shows on Saturday 13 April!
Charismatic singer-songwriter John Grant (Mon 11 Feb) comes to the Hall for the first time ever in support of his brilliant album Love is Magic, whilst ELO Again (Fri 8 Feb) celebrates all the huge hits of Jeff Lynne’s Brummie band. Vampires Rock (Weds 13 Feb) is back too with the amps cranked up to 11 for all your favourite guitar anthems. Plus, this year’s fangtastic show features 2013 X Factor winner Sam Bailey as the Vampire Queen!

Plus, there’s an opportunity to revel in a free afternoon of live music or get involved yourself in the One Day Scratch Orchestral & Choral Event (Sun 3 Feb) in aid of Cancer Research UK.
Names don’t come much bigger in the folk world than legendary New Yorker Joan Baez (Sat 23 Feb) on her farewell tour, whilst Jim Moray (Tues 19 Feb) is at the forefront of a new movement in English traditional music. In addition to Jim, nightmusic returns to the L3 Lounge for another exciting evening of cocktails and contemporary classical with a dynamic double-bill of Duo Bayanello & Trio Anima (Tues 26 Feb).
