Book this event

Following an overwhelmingly positive audience reaction to the Autumn tour, this May, ‘Show of Hands’ are returning with a special Spring preview to four of the most iconic and atmospheric venues on the touring circuit.

From the Granite, clifftop amphitheatre of Cornwall’s Minack theatre to the haunting Gothic and neo-Gothic splendours of Exeter, Wells and Salisbury Cathedrals, the four piece line-up will be presenting specially arranged, stripped back or reworked versions of many of the bands classic tracks such as ‘Country Life’, ‘Crow on the Cradle’ and ‘The Blue Cockade’.

Steve, Phil, Miranda and Cormac will also feature material from the critically acclaimed album ’Battlefield Dancefloor’ as well as the famous ‘Duos’ opening set.
