Bob Fox - An Evening with the War Horse Songman
When? Friday 22nd January

Currently on a gap year, Bob is performing a number of solo dates, which offer viewers the chance to experience his rich voice and virtuoso guitar style in a more intimate surrounding. Performing all of the songs from War Horse, alongside newly written material used in the BBC Radio production Ballad of the Great War, this is a must see for lovers of the theatre!
