Sunday 11th June 2017 at 3.30pm Michael Law - 'Travels with Sheridan Morley'

Sheridan Morley wrote a monumental biography of Noel Coward. Singer-pianist Michael was Morley’s cabaret partner and this show is a celebration of the wit and music of Noel Coward and the anecdotes of the late and much celebrated Sheridan Morley.
“…marvelously understated, Michael’s own performance displays .. impeccable taste and an infallible sense of what an .. audience is hungry for – fine music brilliantly but not aggressively, performed. He truly excels in Coward’s deceptively simple love songs. When he sings, we are suddenly aware that each song has a heart as well as a soul. …Make no mistake …Michael is quite simply unique.”

Friday 16th June 2017 at 7.30pm The PDO in concert

Returning to The Barn for their 21st or 22nd annual concert (no-one can remember exactly!), Michael Law's Piccadilly Dance Orchestra bring a programme of popular music from the 1920s Gatsby era through the beautiful classic songs of the 1930s, to swing and jazz hits. Elegant, musically immaculate and infused with toe-tapping rhythm, the PDO’s recordings have recently been chosen for film and television soundtracks…and two of the PDO’s recordings (Happy Feet and Dance Little Lady) have been heard by more than two and a half million people on YouTube.
