ARE BACK AT THE CITY VARIETIES
Singer-songwriter, Mike Batt, and all-round entertainer, Bernie Clifton, top the bill this March in The Good Old Days at City Varieties Music Hall.
Best known as the founding member of The Wombles – Britain’s biggest selling singles group of 1975 – Batt is a singer-songwriter, arranger, record producer, director, conductor and author, working across a wide range of art-forms and genres.
