Welcome to 2017 and a year of exceptional gigs at ACE Space. We kick off the year with an exceptional line-up of Steve Knightley (of Show of Hands fame) supported by Megan Henwood. Steve’s last appearance at ACE Space was to a full house and tickets for this gig are selling strongly. Don’t delay buying your ticket
The flyer covering events from January to June 2017 can be seen here. Printed version will be distributed soon.
Early Bird price for this gig (£16) only available for a limited number of tickets and not many of them left. Once sold tickets will still be available but at full price (£18).
Very few tickets left. Table reservations can be made by an email to email@example.com or text/call 078911 76940
The rather fabulous duo of Gilmore & Roberts gig in October has been brought forward a couple of weeks and has now been rescheduled for 8th October. When it emerged that the Corn Exchange had scheduled Steeleye Span on the same night we (ACE Space and Katriona Gilmore) thought it prudent to avoid a clash. Fortunately G&R were able to find an alternative date in their busy autumn tour – phew! Anyone with tickets and unable to make the new date should contact Stephen at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 078911 76940
Our tickets are no longer available from the Newbury Visitor Information Centre as due to the cuts it (and the public toilets and many other important services) have been closed. We will miss the staff of the VIC who did such an excellent job promoting Newbury and helping folks who used their services. They were great supporters of ACE Space with a great show of posters with our gigs, including the A-frame in the Market Square.
Hopefully the staff will be able to find jobs where that make the most of their considerable talents.
Happening all around Newbury this weekend (4th to 6th March) the Big Guitar Festival
Slight change to our next gig (Saturday 20th February). Chris Jagger will be playing with The Kronies rather than Atcha.
‘phone call this morning from a croaky and coughing Stu Hanna this morning regrettably informing us that he has picked up a virus which means he will be in no fit state to perform tonight. Apparently this is the first gig he has ever had to cancel due to his health.
Past displays in his studio have been mainly of work from his journeys through France and Italy. Over the past year there has been a local emphasis to his paintings, notably a series of tree studies, in particular the twisted contortions of the branches of aged oaks standing in neglected meadows towards Hampstead Marshall and West Woodhay.
