But 2017 sees Steve Knightley, Phil Beer and Miranda Sykes bring their talents to Ely Cathedral.

Steve said: “There’s something about the ambience, sanctity and rich history of a cathedral that lends itself perfectly to what we do. It’s going to be a really special tour.

“We’ll be bringing out some of the classics of course, but we’re also excited to be able to showcase brand-new material in truly unique settings.”

Having sold out the Royal Albert Hall five times, the trio will be joined by singer-songwriter Kirsty Merryn as the special guest. Performing just days before releasing her debut album ‘She & I’, prepare to hear a collection of original songs about inspirational women.
