Sea Stories

  • Thu 13 Jul, 1.30pm, 7.30pm

A triple bill of music theatre works inspired by the sea:

The Upside Down Sailor, by Roxana Panufrik and Richarg Stilgoe, is a music theatre production based on the story of Tony Bullimore, the solo, round-the-world yachtsman whose boat capsized. It took for days for the Royal Australian Navy to rescue him.

The Golden Vanity is a short opera for boys voices by Benjamin Britten.

Sinbad the Sailor is a new and very silly jazz oratorio by David Nield and Jeremy James Taylor, who directs, performed by over 100 local children.


Sea Stories features more than 140 local children, a wind ensemble from the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music, students from Kingston University, the Tiffin Boys Choir and a celebrity guest actor and narrator.

A limited number of exclusive Gala tickets are available for the evening performance of Sea Stories. These tickets include:
Pre-show champagne reception with canapés in our VIP bar, amongst celebrity guests and patrons.
