Adults £16.00 | Concessions £14.00  SOLD OUT

A solo performance by the songwriting force behind the mighty Show of Hands. Steve is renowned for his strong narrative songs reflecting life in his native West Country, while he also pulls no punches in writing highly literate numbers about bigger national and global issues. A charismatic performer with a great voice, he plays guitar, mandocello and a host of other instruments. Not to be missed!
'Knightley dares to tackle subjects other songwriters leave well alone – his best songs are bleak, witty and finely observed' The Guardian
'One of England's greatest singer songwriters' Mike Harding, BBC Radio 2
