Due to popular demand, we are pleased to announce an additional performance on Saturday 14th November 2015.

A rare opportunity to experience a full performance of Mike Oldfield’s debut album which launched Virgin Records in 1973 and a collection of other instrumental and chart hits.

This one-off concert features a band of over 20 professional musicians led by Colchester Institute’s own Head of Digital Media, Phil Toms, and is a must for fans across the country and beyond!

Guest performers include film composer Roger Eno as the Master of Ceremonies, West End star Nicole Faraday (The Eva Cassidy Story, Bad Girls) on vocals and lead guitarist Jay Stapley, who performed with Mike Oldfield at the premiere of Tubular Bells II in Edinburgh in 1992.

We are very pleased to announce that special guests at the performance will include Tom Newman, producer of the original Tubular Bells album, and Phil Spalding on bass, who performed on 'Moonlight Shadow' and the 1980s tours.

Programme to include:

Tubular Bells Part 1 and 2
Sentinel from Tubular Bells II
The Songs of Distant Earth medley
Moonlight Shadow

and more!
