HUNTINGDON Arts has lined up a packed programme for music-lovers and theatre-goers Worcester bound in March.

The group runs Huntingdon Hall and The Swan Theatre and its new spring programme contains the usual mix of events audiences have come to expect.

In March, music fans will be flocking to the Huntingdon Hall for dates with Colosseum (March 1) singer/ songwriter Tom Paxton (2), The Phil Beer Band of folk rockers (4), Mike Piggott's Hot Club Trio with Grappelli - A Celebration (10), June Tabor (11), the Conservatoire Folk Ensemble (12) and the ever-popular King Pleasure and the Biscuit Boys (17).

Singer Christine Collister comes on March 18, Steve Knightley and Martyn Josph take the stage the next night (19) and then comes Jan Ackermann from Focus (22), Martins 4 (Martin Carthy, Juan Martin, Martin Simpson and Martin Taylor) (March 23) and rounding off the month are Jimmy Carl Black and the Muffin Men playing tribute to Frank Zappa (30).

In The Swan Theatre, the Theatre Royal, from Bury St Edmunds pays a visit with Old Herbaceous, a play described as 'the story of a man who was just a gardener - but what a story and what a gardener!'. The play shows on March 1.

Resistance comes on March 15, a play from the Extant Theatre Company - Britain's first blind theatre company. It tells the true story of a blind teenage leader within the resistance movement in German occupied Paris.

Another big event in March is one of the most popular ballets of all time - Swan Lake - which is being performed by Swansea's Ballet Russe. Book up for one of three performances on March 18 and 19.

Then on March 31, it's time for a bit of nostalgia with Denim Blues, Platform Shoes, Hotpants, Flares - Where Were You? - the all-encompassing title of a 'seventies story' show by Brotherhood of Man.

Add this to a couple of interesting evenings with George Baker, aka Chief Inspector Wexford, on March 12, and Mo Mowlan, on March 25 and there's bound to be something for all.
