Clive Nolan: “In 2015 our special ‘Beyond the Veil’ acoustic show had a ‘ten year anniversary’ theme to it. Well, this year we are going ‘international’! We have a wonderful line up of singers from across the globe, and I am fascinated to see how various combinations will sound. I will also be welcoming back our musicians, Mark, Scott and Kylan to join me for some added dynamics. This will be a great show. Two years is also plenty of time to have gathered a whole new bag on anecdotes!"

'The Fire and the Quest 2': Cheltenham 2017!

FQ cast AlchemyClive Nolan and the Caamora Theatre Company will return to the Cheltenham Playhouse for the second edition of “The Fire and the Quest”! During the mini festival the audience will be able to see two of Clive’s musicals: ‘Alchemy’ and ‘King’s Ransom’, being the next adventure of Professor King and his companions.

Clive Nolan: “After the success of the Fire and the Quest 2015, I am happy to announce that the Fire and the Quest will return in 2017. This time round we will be performing ‘Alchemy’ followed by the debut production of ‘King’s Ransom’, which I hope we will also be recording for an official DVD release. Don’t wait to long to book your tickets!”

The 'Fire and the Quest 2’ will take place at the Cheltenham Playhouse at the very start of September 2017, and will be a similar format to the one we did in 2015.

Here is the schedule...
Friday 1st September - 'Alchemy' (directed by Ian Baldwin)
Saturday Afternoon 2nd September - 'Beyond the Veil' (the acoustic show)
Saturday evening 2nd September - debut of 'King's Ransom' (directed by Ian Baldwin)

There will also be some 'extra features' including 'The Victorian Seance' which will take place later on the Friday (where Ross Andrews will be taking us through some of the tricks of the trade that mediums used to use to 'perform' their communications with the spirit world (£15)). This should a lot of fun!

Also for some there will be an option to attend the final dress rehearsal (on Thursday August 31st) of 'King's Ransom' introduced by Clive - This will be a limited number. Please be aware that this rehearsal may consist of stops and starts, as well as the more noticeable presence of cameras and crew. Then there is of course the much enjoyed 'after-party' to round off the weekend.

‘BEYOND THE VEIL’ ACOUSTIC SHOW DVD PRE SALE!

Beyond the veil small for fbWe are going to release an ‘official bootleg’ DVD of the acoustic show recorded during the ‘Fire and the Quest’ weekend in September 2015, celebrating 10 years of Clive Nolan Musicals. This show features a wide variety of Clive’s material performed by a stellar cast of singers and musicians. Clive plays piano, sings and entertains alongside artists including Christina Booth, Alan Reed, Paul Manzi, Chris Lewis, Paul Scott, Agnieszka Swita, Victoria Bolley, Gemma Louise Edwards, Verity Smith, as well as the instrumental talents of Mark Westwood, Scott Higham and Kylan Amos.

The cost of the DVD package (full colour cover and 2 DVDs) is £15 and it is now available for pre-order in our ONLINE SHOP! The profits raised from this project will go towards the making of Clive’s new musical ‘King’s Ransom’. ‘Beyond the Veil’ will be dispatched in August (at the latest).

Clive Nolan: “I hope this DVD will provide a wonderful memento of that terrific Saturday afternoon concert. I have compiled and edited the show in its entirety, ‘warts and all’, so please be aware there is a lot of chatting and story telling (you can get straight to the songs with the chapter selections). It also needs to be remembered that, sadly, the sound quality is limited because we only had the audio recorded on camera. It was a lot of fun doing this gig, and I really enjoyed working with all these excellent performers. With the challenges I now face to record the new musical, ‘King’s Ransom’, every sale of this DVD will be a welcome contribution to the cause… Enjoy the show, and thanks in advance!”
