Wednesday 24th July 2019 - SING-A-LONG - THE GREATEST SHOWMAN - at The Alexander Centre

7pm
Adults £6.0    Children £4.50

“If you want a really good sing along and a dance this an experience not to be missed” (Manchester Review)

Singalonga Productions, producers of Singalonga Sound of Music and Singalonga Grease bring you their newest show, the smash hit film musical that everyone can’t stop singing – The Greatest Showman!

Cheer on Hugh Jackman as you experience The Greatest Showman in the greatest way possible – with lyrics on the screen so you can join in as loud as you want.

Fancy dress is strongly encouraged and full audience participation essential.

Running time: 2 hours 20 minutes including interval.

Please note this is a screening of the movie not a live stage show.

Suitability for children: The Greatest Showman is a PG certificate film in the UK and is suitable for all. Children are very welcome, although evening performances can sometimes get a little lively and so may be more suitable for older children (plus the late finishing time may mean that younger ones get tired).

Tickets available in advance or on the door - contact The Alexander Centre - 01795 591691 / bookings@thealexandercentre.com

"Wax Collector are three members of the infamous Cenet Rox comprising of Keith Seddon on Bass , Nick Hughes and Faversham drummerman 'Jonno' (John Punt) who have got back together after far far too many years. We play a mixture of self penned songs written by Nick and a few covers sprinkled on top . The name derives from an old Cenet Rox song based on the horror fillum House Of Wax.
The songlets cover a wide range of subjects from French chaperones in 'Mamer' to the dubious joys of one way passion in a car 'This Loving Man' played in a wide range of styles from Jazz Waltz to Rumba Rock Folk Twist !.. The songs are delivered by Nicks quirky distinctive vocals which have been likened to a cross between Sparks vocalist Russell Mael and Marc Bolan... So if you're after quirk strangeness and charm Wax Collector are worth checking out."

AXEL JANSSON FUNDRAISING GIG
Hop Festival Friday
Tickets £6 - Eventbrite

Saxon Shore have teamed up with Creekside Vinyl to put on a very special charity gig to kick off the Faversham Hop Festival on Friday 30th August.

We are delighted to announce that we have booked Swedish singer-songwriter Axel Janssonand his band for a one off performance at The Alexander Centre. Axel, described as 'An enviable pop-rock songwriter’ by ​Songwriting Magazine spent much of last summer touring the festivals including two appearances at Glastonbury.

Axel has kindly agreed to perform and help raise funds for our three charities, The Faversham Creek Trust, Faversham Community Christmas Lightsand the bereavement charity, Holding On Letting Go.

"Liz Jeffery, who runs Saxon Shore with her brother Richard, says: "We are very proud to support a number of local charities and we sincerely hope Axel Jannsson's gig will raise a great deal of money for some very worthwhile causes. Saxon Shore is a Faversham family business and it was a family connection that helped Axel agree to perform - Richard's son (and a committed Saxon Shorelet!) appears in Axel's latest music video."

Simon Tyler who owns Creekside Vinyl says: "It means a lot to me that Creekside Vinyl is able to play a role in the Hop Festival which celebrates music and also the amazing town which is Faversham. So we're delighted to be working with Saxon Shore to bring this very talented artist to Faversham for everyone to hear and enjoy."

"Axel Jansson’s song writing is heartfelt and honest"​ ​Indie Week

“It’s exactly the sort of well-crafted acoustic-driven pop that deserves to find a large and welcoming audience here in the UK and beyond.”​ ​Record Of The Day

Previous singles have attracted attention from The Metro, The Mirror, The Sun & Huffington Post and led to GigSlutz declaring him “a hugely exciting artist" – His 2nd single ‘Two Of A Kind’ – received Record Of The Week on Tim Cocker’s Virgin Radio show and tipped by Record Of The Day.

Check out Axel Jansson's latest single and music video (with a star performance from one young Shorelet).
