Interview: Leo Sayer excited to be coming to the Harlow Playhouse

IT may be a little bit lost in the mist of time but Leo Sayer wrote some fine songs. And what is more they had some wonderful stories attached to them.

Review: Beverley Craven at the Harlow Playhouse

THIS was a classic case of not really knowing what to expect. This reviewer was only aware of the massive 1991 hit “Promise Me” and a couple of other minor songs such as “Holding On”.

Review: Ultimate Bowie at the Harlow Playhouse

ON April 20th, 1972, a “one hit wonder” stepped onto the stage of the Harlow Playhouse. His new album “The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and th eSpiders From Mars” had just been released.

Review: Giselle by the Harlow Ballet Association

Review: Jonny and The Baptists: Swans and Gold Lame

GUSTO. That is the word we were looking for. Jonny and the Baptists have such enthusiasm and gusto that they sat in the audience for the first part of this double bill (In Tents and Purposes) and laughed loudly and heartedly.

Review: Words and music raise spirits at Harlow Playhouse

TO be honest, this reviewer was not that keen on attending this concert. Nothing against You Win Again but the events in Westminster had cast a huge shadow on the day.
