Start the new year with music, laughs and fun at the Cheese and Grain

COMEDIAN Ed Byrne, a Prince tribute act, Walter Trout and much more adds up to quite a line-up at the Cheese and Grain in the new year. 

Coming up are… 

The first post-Covid Wessex Model Railway exhibition on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th January, 10am to 4pm. General admission is £6 for adults, children go free. 

Absolute Bowie on Friday 14th January. 

There will only ever be one David Bowie, he was unique in every way and an inspiration to millions. Winners of the ‘Best Bowie Tribute’ and ‘Best Band in the UK’ at the National Tribute Awards 2018, Absolute Bowie continue to celebrate the life and music of the Starman with a spectacular greatest hits show uniting Bowie fans across the UK. 

The show is presented with incredible attention to detail, costume changes galore, excellent musicianship and an electrifying frontman.  

Don’t just take our word for it, the band provide a “Loving crafted Bowie show” (NME) that wows audiences across the UK. The band is, without doubt, the most popular David Bowie tribute in Europe and now in their 12th year. 

Prepare to be taken from A to Z (Absolute Beginners to Ziggy!) with Stations to Station in between. 

Walter Trout with support from the Danielle Nicole Band, will be at the venue on Friday 21st January. 

Walter Trout’s backstory is a page-turner you won’t want to put down. Five decades in the making; it is equal parts thriller, romance, suspense and horror.  

There are musical fireworks, critical acclaim and fists-aloft triumph, offset by wilderness years and brushes with the jaws of narcotic oblivion.  

There are feted early stints as gunslinger in bands from John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers to Canned Heat, and the solo career that’s still blazing a quarter-century later. The veteran bluesman has seen and done it all – plays earth shattering blues rock music. 

Rescheduled from May 2021, SAS leader and sniper, Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham, will be at the Cheese and Grain on Wednesday 26th January. 

Mark ‘Billy’ Billingham is TV’s most experienced, highest ranking and most decorated SAS leader and sniper. 

Billy is a former SAS Sergeant Major Class 1 and bodyguard to the stars including Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Russell Crowe, Sir Michael Caine, Tom Cruise and many others. 

The evening is hosted and produced by Endurance (Running) World Record Breaker Mark Llewhellin. There will also be a Q & A and a chance to meet Billy. 

On Friday 28th January, definitive Prince tribute band, New Purple Celebration, will be performing. 

Celebrating the music, life and legacy of a true musical legend, New Purple Celebration deliver a non-stop, high-energy show spanning more than two hours. Described as “nothing short of a huge party”! 

Prepare to be immersed in the music, as Jimi and the band take you on a journey through hits and hidden gems from deeper into the songbook of one of the most prolific artists of all time! 

1999, Little Red Corvette, Purple Rain, Kiss, Nothing Compares 2 U, I Wanna Be Your Lover, Musicology and so many more. 

This is a ‘tribute’ show like no other! Focussing on the power of Prince’s music and the atmosphere of his concerts, it is the show all the Prince ‘fans’ want to see! With such a wealth of songs to choose from, no two shows are the same. 

A full nine-piece band, New Purple Celebration have been together since 2004 and toured extensively throughout the UK and Europe and are made up of a group of experienced musicians, performing together because of their mutual respect and love for the music of Prince. 

Comedian Ed Byrne brings his show ‘If I’m Honest…’ to the Cheese and Grain on Tuesday 1st February. 

Join Ed as he takes a long hard look at himself and tries to decide if he has ANY traits that are worth passing on to his children. 

Ed Byrne presents his brand-new masterclass in observational comedy hot on the heels of his 2017/18 touring hit, Spoiler Alert! 

A TV household name, in the past year Ed has appeared on Live At The Apollo (host, BBC), Mock The Week (BBC), The Pilgrimage (BBC), Top Gear (BBC) and QI (BBC).
