Adam Beattie and the Consultants bring their new harder jazz-edged sound to The Gladstone Sunday Sessions. Beattie ploughs a similar furrow to Tom Waits and Nick Cave’s downtempo work, noir folk blues with a dark edge and a big heart that never fails to move an audience. You’ll hear influences from old-time jazz, swing and parlour songs in his sound, now abstracted to a sharper, darker and more modern setting

East London singer-songwriter Lorraine Wood sings songs of love, loss and disappointment, the three pillars of all good country music. Blessed with a beautifully emotive voice and a superb songwriting craft, she’s a fantastic new addition to the Glad Sunday Session stage.

Our Sundays can be busy, so we offer the chance to book a seat. Booking times available for this Sunday are 7.00 pm pm til 7.30 pm, we’ll happily hold a seat in your name between these times (we can’t hold you a full table unless the numbers correspond, as all seats must be filled).
