Event:         RNLI Benefit: "Tales of Time and Tide"
Venue:         Main Hall, Town Hall, Richmond

"Tom Bliss is a musical Peter Ustinov!"

"Astonishlngly moving and inspirational" Joe Grint, Tykes News

Tom specialises in story-songs based on real events (from the Middle Ages to just last year) - some gripping, some very funny, and some simply heartrending.

This 'natural-born raconteur' has developed his song-intros into a unique style of reportage, which is as much part of the show as the songs themselves, with 'magic lantern' slides and short documentary clips to bring the songs' back-stories vividly to life.

But the screen always goes dark for the music - because Tom's poetic lyrics paint pictures in the mind's eye that no camera could ever capture..

Tom plays guitar, mandola, mandocello, dulcimer, concertina and whistle during the show.

"Never have I heard tales told and sung with such humour and skill. A spellbinding couple of hours." Terry Ferdinand - Bishop FM

NB: This is not a pantomime or specifically a kids show, though older children are welcome.

Tickets: 01748 850808

Please support the RNLI if you can (and I'd love it if you came, too!) - thanks, Tom
