Ben Montague


Ben Montague, one of the UK’s most talented singer song writer’s, has just been announced as the main support for ex Westlife front man Shane Filan, on his highly anticipated ‘You and Me’ Tour.

The much awaited 18 date ‘You And Me Tour’ kicks off in Liverpool on 20th February 2014 and is almost sold out across all dates.

Ben, who has supported The Wanted, Lawson and the Stereophonics amongst others, first began making waves in late 2010, when he burst onto the scenes with his single ‘Cant Hold me Down’ (taken from his debut album ‘Overcome’) which was play-listed for an incredible 5 weeks. Following the success of this first single, Ben continued to mesmerize listeners with his stunning second single ‘Haunted’, which beat off label backed competition to achieve the coveted BBC Radio 2 Record of The Week slot.

His second studio album ‘Tales of Flying and Falling’ was released in early 2013 and following on from where he left off, ‘Tales of Flying and Falling’ became BBC Radio 2’s “Album of the Week”.

2014 is another exciting year for Ben, who, in addition to supporting Shane Filan on tour, will also be releasing his next single. Teaming up with hit song producer Dan Gautreau (Alicia Keys, Ben Howard, Loveable Rouges), Ben has created an incredible selection of new material and his latest single release ‘The Truth’ – was out March 2014.

Julian Trevelyan: Etchings


This remarkable exhibition spans the full fifty years of Julian Trevelyan's print making career and highlights the extraordinary diversity and technical ability of this master printmaker.

Recognised as one of the most prominent and influential printmakers of the twentieth century, Royal Academician Julian Trevelyan (1910 - 1988) was an important innovator of modern printing techniques.

By the late 1950s he was Head of the Etching Department at the Royal College of Art where he taught and inspired, amongst others Norman Ackroyd, David Hockney and RB Kitaj.
