Steve Knightley

Thursday Aug 22 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Town Hall, Wadebridge, The Platt
Wadebridge, Cornwall PL27 7AQ
£12.5

Steve once again takes to England’s highways and byways to present ‘Roadworks’ – a show which builds on the success of his sell-out 2018 solo tour ‘Songs and Stories’. This is a stripped-back, one-man show that’s infused with wit, warmth and alchemy, beautifully illustrated by his trenchant songs of history, love and conscience.
