Following sell-out seasons at the Sydney Fringe Festival, the New Zealand International Arts Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Tubular Bells For Two comes to Northampton’s Royal & Derngate on Friday.

In this show, two multi-talented musicians recreate the iconic album on stage.

Rather than simply mimicking Oldfield’s multi-tracked arrangements, the show captures the soul and emotional journey of the remarkable folk-rock epic.

Among the instruments onstage are keyboards, guitars, bass, mandolin, glockenspiel and loop pedals and of course tubular bells.

Tubular Bells For Two started as an idea conjured up over a bottle of wine by old school friends Daniel Holdsworth and Aidan Roberts.

Doors open at 8pm and tickets cost £21.
