£20 - £125 (£125 tickets include a drinks and canapé reception)
Wilton’s favourite storytelling show returns with a knockout lineup of six of the biggest names in Music, Comedy, Film and Theatre: David Suchet, Deborah Frances-White, Katie Melua, Tim McInnerny, Helen Lederer and Mark Dolan.
This event launches The Beautiful Word, a new capital campaign to enrich audience comfort, enhancing acoustics and seating at Wilton’s.
All proceeds from tickets for the event will go directly towards supporting The Beautiful Word campaign.
Mixing the best elements of Desert Island Discs, The Moth and TED Talks, OneTrackMinds asks six guests to share a story about a particular song or piece of music that has - in some way - changed their life. It might be a song that has inspired their greatest work or made them fall in love. It might be a song that soundtracked their biggest achievement, or gave them solace in their darkest hour. It might be a song they love, or a song they hate. And once they’ve told their story, we all listen to their chosen track.
To reflect the history of this amazing venue, this special one-off edition of OneTrackMinds will reflect the history – and future – of Music Hall with a lineup of national treasures from the worlds of Music, Theatre and Comedy.
Light bites and drinks will be available from 3pm.
Running time: 1 hour and 50 minutes, including a 20 minute interval.
If you have booked for the drinks and canapé reception this will be held in the Cocktail Bar on the first floor of the theatre during the interval.
