Welcome to Revelation, Ashford’s own unique arts venue. This year we celebrate our 5th birthday and are delighted to launch our Autumn/Winter programme, offering a wide range of events for all the family.  From soul to folk, drama to film, we aim to offer something to appeal to all and we look forward to seeing you.

Season highlights include gigs by Jon Boden of Bellowhead fame on his first solo tour since Bellowhead split; Multi-instrumentalist Seth Lakeman will be launching his new album as part of his tour and for both artists, these are their only Kent shows.

We commemorate World War One with an amazing multi media event, Black Dog – Dreams of Paul Nash. This new graphic novel and multimedia performance by iconic illustrator, comic artist, filmmaker and musician Dave McKean explores the work of Paul Nash, one of the most important British artists of the twentieth century.

Also on offer is A Day’s Work, featuring folk song, music and storytelling; a tale of hope and courage, as on the eve of The Great War a group of lifelong friends gather to discuss the impending conflict.

Come along to an evening with Gerald Dickens, great-great-grandson of Charles Dickens as he thrills us with his retelling of two of Dickens’ most harrowing tales, ‘Sikes and Nancy’ and the eerie story of ‘The Signalman’.

Half-term treats are here with performances from The Wheels on Debussy and a special film screening, Frozen Sing-Along or if a quirky talk is more your thing come along to our very own Curiosity Club hosted by BBC Radio’s David Bramwell with special guest Kevin Barry, talking about Postal Pranks + Sun Spots, Moon Shadows and Human Behaviour.

These are just a few of the fantastic events coming up to find out more, join our mailing list to get the latest news and offers.
