Update 1 November: After yesterday’s government announcement, this concert will not now happen as advertised. We have rescheduled for a date in December. Existing ticket holders for the original date will be offered a refund or the chance to move their booking to the new date.

In March of this year when we couldn’t meet each other, Rick Thorpe started painting East African animals in the Torquay landscape. Hugh Nankivell dreamt that he was walking with Rick seeing these wonderful beasts and wrote songs about these perambulations. They inspired each other to create a dozen new visual and sonic landscapes.

Live and pre-recorded songs, improvisations and minimalist impressions for keyboards, violin and saxes.

Music by Hugh Nankivell
Paintings by Rick Thorpe
Films by Bob Lockwood
Live performance by Hugh Nankivell with Emma Welton, Bob Lockwood and Andy Williamson
