Tickets £10 on the door or £8 / £10 + booking fee if booked online

Charlie Dore is best known as a respected songwriter, but has been performing in her own right since the 1970s. She made her first album in Nashville and London and released a single, Pilot of the Airwaves, which became a hit in the US.

She became one of a handful of UK songwriters to have success across diverse genres with songs covered by George Harrison, Tina Turner, Lisa Stansfied, Ricky Ross, Sheena Easton (US No 4), Celine Dion, Black, UB40, Status Quo, Paul Carrack and a UK No 1, ‘Ain’t No Doubt’ for Jimmy Nail.

“Taking part in a singaround isn’t at all like an open mike session or performing on stage. There won’t be a microphone.
