The Strand is now taking bookings for January 2018 onwards.

Upcoming Public Events

With our 2017 calendar filling at record speed, if you are thinking of booking The Strand for your event, please get in touch via our contacts page as soon as possible. Or, better still, come along to one of the our public events:

Tickets solld out fast again and another £1200 was raised for the Joe Glove Trust cancer appeal. Thanks to everyone.

Last year the event raised a similar amount for the Trust. Many thanks to Rob our famous MC and also once again to Shannon Chilvers who stepped in with only a few days notice to give a wonderful performance. It was also lovely to see former Strand musicians including Eddie Chilvers, Twig and Tony Wardle.

Three Choirs Vineyard Wedding: "Thank you and the rest of the band for the wedding music. It was a fantastic night and we had many comments suggesting it was the best wedding people had been to. Thanks once again for a fantastic performance." Mark & Vicky, 18th Aug '17
