Saturday July 6




Natasha Greenham, Singing for Pleasure and Lord Gawain Douglas


11.00am St Saviour’s Church, The Strand, Walmer

Natasha and Gawain will take us on a journey through Deal’s Naval and more recent Royal Marine history, capturing and re-telling humorous, tragic and moving folk songs and tales from the Napoleonic times, Waterloo and Trafalgar through to the time of the Royal Marines School of Music in Deal.

The stories, poems and songs they have selected tell of the struggles and beauty of life in the Navy and Marines but also connect this to Deal people and life and the impact of this history on the culture of Deal today.

A universal truth indeed. This Gustav is Good Stuff! (LONDON JAZZ NEWS)

For the last two years Pete Long and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra have enraptured sell out audiences in Deal.  These are the UK’s very best jazz musicians coming together at full steam!  They perform a homage to ‘the Duke’, with Ellington’s own celebrated versions of Grieg’s Peer Gynt and Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite together with a stunning brand-new jazz version of Gustav Holst’s The Planets, recreated in the style of Duke Ellington by Pete Long.
