Wishbone Ash @ Tivoli Theatre

PLEASE NOTE: THIS SHOW BEGINS AT 7.30PM, NOT 8PM AS PREVIOUSLY LISTED

Plus support: Steve Hill

The legendary Wishbone Ash – pioneers of the twin-guitar rock that influenced groups from Thin Lizzy to Iron Maiden – return to the Tivoli in October 2017!

Hear rock classics such as The King Will Come, Throw Down The Sword & Blowin’ Free alongside their latest work. As one of the busiest bands in rock, we suggest you book early to avoid disappointment!

Wishbone Ash embarked on the nascent Progressive Rock scene in 1969, taking full advantage of a fertile musical environment where they produced a distinctive brand of melodic rock. Inspired equally by British folk traditions and American jazz and R&B, the group played to public and critical acclaim.
More than 45 years later, having pioneered the use of twin lead guitars, Wishbone Ash has gained worldwide recognition, based firmly on a regime of relentless touring. And their latest studio release, “Blue Horizon,” continues to solidify their reputation as a musical force to be reckoned with.

Whole Lotta Led performing the classic album Led Zeppelin IV

On 19th November 1971 Led Zeppelin released what was to become one of the greatest albums of all time – Led Zeppelin IV. Over the next few months Whole Lotta Led will be performing a few of their special Led Zeppelin IV shows to celebrate this incredible album.

Led Zeppelin IV is unquestionably one of the greatest albums of all time, containing an astonishing range of musical styles, from the dirty blues of ‘When The Levee Breaks’, to the sublime ‘Going To California’ and not forgetting the all time classic ‘Stairway To Heaven’.

The first half of this special show will consist of a selection of songs from Led Zeppelin’s vast back catalogue. The second half features the whole of Led Zeppelin IV played in the same sequence as the original LP.

It is three years since the band last performed any Led Zeppelin IV shows and they always prove hugely successful and incredibly popular, for this reason we suggest you book tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

VINYL SURVIVALISTS returns to Wimborne for an autumn session where we are sure our avid contributors to “The People’s Juke Box” will have gathered more precious vinyl as sales of this ancient art form continue to rise across the land.

This will be the fifth session hosted by DJ Dapper Dan & The Maccassa Man where people are invited to come and bring their own vinyl records to be played on their biffing sound system creating “The People’s Juke Box”.   This always results in an eclectic mix and is thoroughly entertaining.

David Starkey presents – Henry VIII: The First Brexiteer?

Henry VIII is the only king whose shape you remember. He bestrides our history like a colossus and the decisions he took still reverberate today. The Reformation is the first Brexit; his ministers devised the doctrine of parliamentary sovereignty and his tumultuous personal life pitted religion against politics as brutally as in our
own age of Isis. In this lecture David Starkey draws on his unique knowledge of Henry’s reign on the one hand, and his insights as a leading commentator on modern politics on the other, to illuminate both the Tudor age and our own.
