    Kit & McConnel - Musical Cabaret (Maidment Auditorium)

    Kit and McConnel have become firm favourites at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and throughout the UK, where their brand of sharply honed, observant and times wickedly funny song writing sets them apart from the ordinary.

    They are simply one of the most entertaining and hilarious duos currently on the UK comedy circuit. Come and enjoy the brilliance of Kit Hesketh Harvey's lyrics and rapier wit and also the wonderful piano playing and creativity of James McConnel.

    Their latest Festival show promises to be a treat to enjoy at Shrewsbury. Not to be missed!

    Suitable for ages 14+

    "Achingly funny" – The Times
    "Cabaret royalty" – Time Out
    "A national treasure" – The Telegraph
    "witty, topical, subversive and musically accomplished" - Evening Standard

    Tickets £15.00 each from www.ticketsource.co.uk /shrewsburyschool or Juliet Young on 01743 280812

    All the King's Men (Alington Hall)

    A multi-award-winning a cappella group based at King's College London, All The King’s Men combine tight vocal harmonies with mesmerising choreography presenting a highly entertaining show for any occasion.

    They are the voices that are defining a genre, and as we go to press have just risen to fame on BBC1’s Pitch Battle, making it through to the final of the show which is currently putting a cappella music back in the spotlight in Britain.

    With 5 stars and official sell-outs, their all-vocal covers from Bowie to Beyoncé are a must-see!

    The United States, Moscow, Milan, Cannes, Seoul and many more have enjoyed this slick 9-piece live on tour. Their albums and videos have received recognition as far as the Los Angeles A Capella Festival, making AtKM the most nominated British group in a cappella award history!

    "A cappella heavyweights" (The Telegraph)

    "Slick, charming, professional… fun!" ★★★★★ (BroadwayBaby.com)

    "You'll love this!" (BBC Radio 2)

    We are really excited to welcome the boys back; All the Kings Men have a very special connection with Shrewsbury School as they were founded by OS Henry Southern and at the moment feature two more Old Salopians; George Fowler and Alfred Mitchell.

    This concert follows their sell-out performance in 2015 – early booking is advised!

    Tickets £15.00 each from www.ticketsource.co.uk/shrewsburyschool or Juliet Young on 01743 280812
