Admission: £8 | BOOK HERE

Kate Bush’s music and lyrics embrace silliness alongside seriousness, channelling literary allusions as diverse as Emily Brontë, Hans Christian Andersen and James Joyce, to pop-culture icons like Elvis and Houdini. In this celebratory event, marking 40 years from the release of The Kick Inside, the debut album that introduced the remarkable ‘Wuthering Heights’ to the world, writers and musicians offer personal responses to the influences that pepper Bush’s music. A tribute to the extraordinary and revolutionary musical icon, by artists and fans alike.

Cellist and singer Alana Henderson weaves pop, folk and classical elements to craft a sound which is strikingly unique. A two-year stint moonlighting as Hozier’s touring cellist saw Alana travelling the world, with a homecoming bringing the release of a single ‘Let This Remain’ in 2017. 2019 sees Alana back with a new EP, her trademark cello bolstered with shimmering electronics and slide guitar.

LARKS is the new project from Fiona O’Kane. She draws influences from rhythmic Electronic based beats, infused with Indie & Alternative sensibilities, all the while keeping her sincere, heartfelt lyrics as strong as ever. In February 2019 LARKS released a cover of the Kate Bush classic Running Up That Hill in her second collaboration with Arvo Party.
