Ian McMillan & Luke Carver Goss- Between You and Me

About the event


Poet, broadcaster & comedian Ian McMillan and Olympic composer Luke Carver Goss present a hilarious night of words, music & breath-taking comedy, featuring songs, stories and a musical created out of thin air!

Bard of Barnsley Ian McMillan hosts weekly hit radio show The Verb. He’s Poet-in-Residence for Barnsley FC, The Academy of Urbanism and, until recently, English National Opera. He’s a regular on BBC Breakfast, Pointless Celebrities, Coast, Countryfile, Pick of the Week, Last Word, The Yorkshire Dales and The Lakes (C4) … He was featured on The South Bank Show and cast away on Desert Island Discs. His rip-roaring poetry shows are legendary. Cats make him sneeze.

Luke Carver Goss has recorded & performed with his own group, the acclaimed Carver Trio, as well as The Ian McMillan Orchestra, the Balkan singer Tea Hodzic jazz singer Tina May and story-teller Daniel Morden in the group The Devil's Violin. Recent works with Ian include Snappy Opera The Magical Music Tree for Mahogany Opera Group, Looking for a Stable for Scunthorpe Rotary and local choirs, Tiger Tales for Holmfirth Arts Festival, a new carol A Single Snowflake Falls for Chester Music Society and soon a new piece for Chapel-en-le-Frith Male Voice Choir’s Centenary. ‘Luke Carver Goss is a composer who creates big worlds of sound...
