Due to factors beyond our control, we regret to announce that this show has unfortunately been cancelled. We are looking to reschedule for the Autumn.


Acclaimed Manchester singer-songwriter Kirty Almeida returns following her triumphant concert at this year’s Hungry Pigeon festival.

Musical dresses, circular doors, chirping toy birds, sonic hallucinations: in Kirsty Almeida we’ve the return, at last, of the enigmatic true eccentric. Her music (like her life) is magical, the kind of radiant soul-revue sophistication that’s been gone so long it suddenly feels brand new; crystalline vocals untouched by meddling sheen, live instrumentation tinkling across your synapses, the glowing warmth of classic song-writing pulsing like amber jewels. Expect a truly magical performance tonight at Band on the Wall.

This concert will begin at 7.30pm.
