Thea Gilmore Invites Martin To Play at Nantwich Words & Music Festival

Nantwich’s own Words And Music Festival - the event which has quickly established itself in the South Cheshire market town as a celebration of all things quality from the worlds of music, literature and poetry - is back in style, and gearing up for its third year. Singer-songwriter, Thea Gilmore and husband, Nigel Stonier, who co-organise the festival, have invited Martin to be a part of this great event and perform at the studio theatre at Malbank Sixth Form Centre, in a speclal Saturday night concert on October 9th. "I'm really pleased to be invited to this festival", Martin said. "I'll have just got back from a tour of Canada, full of new ideas and influences and it will be great to kick off my UK Autumn dates at a great event that's not too far from home!"
Words And Music press officer Dayve Dean said “The way that the town has embraced the festival in its first two years has been inspiring to us. We’ve presented national and internationally acclaimed acts, all of whom have spoken warmly about the festival,the town and the welcome they were given in Nantwich. We now believe our third year will feature our best line-up of acts ever.”
Tickets for the main performances are now on sale at Grapevine, Pepper Street (Contact 01270 610751) and can also be found - along with all festival inormation and showtimes - at the festival website
