  • David C Clements Concert – 23rd November,8pm

    David C Clementshas been grabbing the attention of music lovers through his exceptional live performances for quite some time. He is an epic and heavenly alternative folk singer with swelling melodies and vocals touched with the ache of experience, retelling tales that feel at once both insightful and familiar.

    Clements is a well-respected musician, having cut his teeth performing with former band, SixStarHotel, yet it is his solo material that demands most attention, notably with Ed Sheeran and Passenger, as well as in collaboration with Gary Lightbody (Snow Patrol).

    The live concert will take place within a heated marquee in C.S. Lewis Square and feature a fully licensed bar from Horatio Todd’s.
