Coming up at the Assembly Hall

THERE’S non-stop entertainment at Melksham Assembly Hall with enthralling new shows and live music coming up over the next month.

Performing on 9th September, after many years fronting firstly The Rollin Clones and then The Rolling Zones, along with solo work, Mick Jogger has come back to stretch the boundaries with ‘Mick Jogger and the Stones Experience’.

This is no run-of-the- mill tribute outfit but a group of top class musicians, playing fantastic Rolling Stones classic songs, backing Mick as he struts his stuff.

All the band are involved in a performance of great feel, high energy and a touch of humour !

If you want to sing along, dance or just tap your feet to some of the world’s greatest rock tunes then Mick Jogger and the band will give you a real ‘Stones Experience’. Tickets are £15.

On 14th September, experience Carmen like never before with Carmen On The Lake – recorded live on the floating stage during the Bregenz Festival. As with their previous spectacular productions, you can expect the staging of this classic tale to have an extravagantly original and innovative design, with the waters of the lake being used as an extension of the stage.

George Bizet’s Carmen is a story of passion, destiny and obsession. The French composer’s opera is most famous for its Spanish melodies, including the Flower Song, Habanera and the Toreador Song.

This production of Carmen will be directed by Kasper Holten, director of opera at the Royal Opera House in London, with the set designed by the British artist Es Devlin. Her past work includes sets for such stars as Adele, Take That, U2, Pet Shop Boys and Kanye West. Tickets £12, conc. £10.
