Coming up at the Assembly Hall…

MELKSHAM Assembly Hall has released details of its autumn schedule, and it’s packed with a quality line-up of music, comedy and entertainment.

On Tuesday 4th October, the Assembly Hall welcomes psychic medium Tony Stockwell. Tony  has been working as a medium for almost 30 years. In that time he has had umpteen television programmes including Psychic Academy, Psychic Detectives, Street Psychic and has shared the stage all round the world with international mediums such as Colin Fry, James Van Praagh and Lisa Williams.

Pre-show information explains, “He has written four highly acclaimed books and taught at some of the most respected schools for mediumistic development. Tony receives messages from the spirit world in the form of names, descriptions of character and physical appearance and relays the evidence with tact and feeling.

“Recent legislative guidelines suggest that any Evening of Clairvoyance should be billed ‘for entertainment purposes’ Tony certainly uses his natural wit, showmanship and cockney charisma to entertain but, more importantly, mediumship has the potential to change someone’s life and instil in them a sense of peace, comfort and purpose.”

Tickets £20 first five rows – £18.50 all other seats..

The popular Comedy Showcase is back on Friday 7th October. Comedians for the show are yet to be announced, so keep an eye on Facebook for updates. Tickets are £8 in advance, £10 on the door.

On Tuesday 11th October, the Assembly Hall welcomes The Lindisfarne Story. Tyneside group Lindisfarne, Alan Hull, Rod Clements, Ray Jackson, Simon Cowe and Ray Laidlaw, exploded onto the UK music scene in 1970 with a string of unforgettable songs.

The likes of Lady Eleanor, Meet Me on the Corner, Fog on the Tyne and Run For Home quickly established the band as the standard-bearers for acoustic-based rock.

Their sparkling songwriting cut through the prevailing pop and glam sounds of the 70s – international success followed, and Lindisfarne’s music continues to be heard on the radio today. In this entertaining show, former members Billy Mitchell and Ray Laidlaw tell The Lindisfarne Story from the very beginning.

As a duo, hear them perform acoustic versions of the band’s classic songs, and relive moments from the band’s history as they share ‘behind the scenes’ stories illustrated with archive video and stills. Tickets cost £18.

Then on Thursday 27th October, award-winning American comedian Rich Hall brings his nationwide tour to Melksham.

Rich’s critically acclaimed grouchy, deadpan style has established him as a master of absurdist irony and the king of rapid-fire wit. Tickets cost £16

All tickets are available from the Assembly Hall itself on 709887, Melksham Tourist Information Centre in Church Street or visit www.melkshamassemblyhall.co.uk
