This cult Australian band are masters of long-form improvisation – in each show The Necks step onto the stage with no preconceived ideas of what they will play. Every Necks’ performance is a singular event, entirely improvised and working with the acoustics of the room. After 30 years on the road together they make their first ever appearance at the Festival in Cheltenham’s resonant Town Hall.

One of the most extraordinary groups on the planet… a sonic experience that has few parallels or rivals.

Cheltenham Town Hall, Main Hall

The Town Hall, situated on Imperial Gardens in the centre of Cheltenham comprises of a Grand Main Hall, distinguished by its Corinthian styles columns and coved ceiling. The Main Hall is accompanied by dining and drawing rooms, as well as the Pillar Room bar.

The venue’s early 20th century Edwardian elegance makes it the classic ‘shoebox’ concert hall. With a seating capacity of 900, the Town Hall is perfectly suited to grand symphony orchestra performances with a thrilling impact.
