The ever-popular Rick Wakeman returns to the Festival for a one-off show on the second part of his Piano Odyssey UK tour.

In 2017, keyboard player, songwriter, broadcaster and raconteur Rick made chart history when his 'Piano Portraits' record became the first solo piano instrumental album to enter the UK’s Top 10 on release – a feat he repeated with the release of the follow-up 'Piano Odyssey' last October.

Both albums feature music that has been important to Rick on his own personal musical journey, drawn from contemporary pop and rock, as well as classical repertoire, and including arrangements of David Bowie’s 'Life On Mars', Cat Stevens' 'Morning Has Broken', The Beatles’ 'Eleanor Rigby', YES’ 'Wonderous Stories' and Tchaikovsky’s 'Swan Lake'.

Come and join Rick for an evening of superb musicianship with a selection of music from both albums plus much more, interspersed with insightful anecdotes and much knockabout humour!
