It’s been a fantastic start of the year here at Arlington Arts with 2 sell out shows in the same number of weeks; Kast Off Kinks and Livewire: The AC/DC Show. These two electric shows are becoming mandatory for our Winter/Spring seasons and we will endeavour to get both acts back again next year as we know a lot of you unfortunately missed out. Either side of these shows we also had Alvin Youngblood Hart’s Muscle Theory and one of Arlingtons most popular performers; Mandolinquents.
Currently we are preparing for BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions? which is very exciting for Arlington Arts and for you as an audience to ask your questions on the issues that face the country at the moment. Overall we’re very proud of the season we’ve got prepared for you – all of which you can see in the online brochure below:
Some of the other highlights for Arlington Arts this season are:

People of the Eye by The DH Ensemble – Monday 26 March £10, £8 concessions
This is a provocative piece that examines the realities of the people affected by deafness, and celebrates the beauty of sign language and Deaf culture while not shying away from the complex idea of culture verses disability.

This show is SOLD OUT. One of our quickest sellers ever, we can’t wait to welcome The Dead South to Arlington Arts on their first UK headline tour.
Oye Santana – Saturday 05 May £18
And every Oye Santana performance is a show, a visual feast of lights and action that will have you singing along, smiling along and dancing along from the first chink of a tambourine to the explosive finale. You’re going to love Oye Santana.
Blackbeard’s Tea Party – Saturday 02 June £13
Now we’re happy to welcome Blackbeard’s Tea Party back to Arlington Arts with their brand of gutsy folk rock. Traditional songs and tunes are given a heavy rock edge with playful arrangements and driving dance rhythms. This is all mixed up in an engaging, high-octane stage show that frequently leaves audiences cheering for more.
And that’s just the first half of the year! We hope you’re looking forward to 2018 at Arlington Arts as much as we are. If you’re unsure then just check out our Youtube playlist of our upcoming events.
