By popular demand the sell-out multi-media show about Hull rock legend Mick Ronson is back with some new additions for 2021. Featuring a live rock band, a classical string quartet, film projection and storytelling ‘Turn and Face the Strange’ will take you on a moving joyous journey through the life and music of Mick Ronson.

The stellar line-up of talent includes rock musicians who played with Mick Ronson and David Bowie, with Keith ‘Ched’ Cheesman (The Rats) John Cambridge (The Rats & The Hype), John Bentley (Squeeze), alongside Kristian Eastwood, Bobby Joyce, Rachael Jarvis & Phil Keech. With a string quartet of classically trained musicians ‘Turn and Face the Strange’ tells the real story of the local lad who rocked the music world.
