‘An animated and fascinating frontman…’
Classic Rock Magazine

With special guests Lenny Beige, Tracie Bennett, Jessie Wallace and Ray Gelato.

DJ Bob Morris will be opening the evening’s entertainment with ‘Big Bob’s Soul Night Out’ (50s & 60s R&B & Soul).

Soho is Tim Arnold, and Tim Arnold is Soho.

Singer, songwriter, Soho storyteller and entertainer; Tim’s Soho roots stretch back to before he was born: his grandfather was actor manager for the legendary Paul Raymond in the 1950′s, and his mother made history by being the youngest nude to perform the fan-dance at the Windmill Theatre in the 1960′s. Now, Tim is at the forefront of the W1 music scene, with an act that celebrates the grit and the glamour of London’s sinful square mile in story and song.

Tim’s show comprises of a new album of original songs, compered by actor Jud Charlton. The album features many star guests from the worlds of TV, music and theatre, including Gary Kemp, Phil Daniels and Jessie Wallace. This show will feature an original Windmill Theatre ’nude’ fan dance from 1964, re-enacted by burlesque performer Miss Giddy Heights.

Expect a performance bustling with incident, pulsing with glamour and positively pullulating with myth and mayhem and songs so strong neither the milkmen nor the strippers can resist whistling them as they wend their way home at dawn.

‘The mixture of searing power pop, swooning serenades and swelling string sections is magnificent.’
Q Magazine

‘Possessing a beautiful voice and if you’re looking for references then try Muse, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley and The Beatles – such is the strength of the material here.’
Rocksound Magazine

‘Like all the best heart-flayed-open records, it’s a delicate yet powerful affair. String quartets lifting from the grooves like a flock of pigeons rising over Soho Square.’
