Canterbury’s Marlowe Theatre hosts four very different music nights in August.

The voices of Ladysmith Black Mambazo come to the Canterbury venue on Monday August 7.

Referred to by Nelson Mandela as “South Africa’s cultural ambassadors”, they sing rhythms and harmonies of their Zulu traditions to gospel music.

UK chart-topper Tony Christie brings together his catalogue of hits on Tuesday, August 8.

After his breakthrough in 1971, Tony has sold more then ten million records around the world.

Songs include Is This The Way To Amarillo?, I Did What I Did For Maria, Avenues And Alleyways, Kiss In The Night, and Walk Like A Panther.

There are limited tickets left for That’ll Be The Day, featuring hits from the 1950s to the 1980s, on Wednesday, August 9.

Islands In The Stream, on Thursday, August 10, celebrates Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers, the queen and king of country music.

Country music’s greatest hits, including Jolene, Ruby, 9 To 5, Lucille, Here You Come Again, The Gambler, I Will Always Love You, Coward Of The County, Love Is Like A Butterfly, and Lady, will be performed on stage.

All shows start at 7.30pm; for ticket prices and to book, go to marlowetheatre.com, or call the box office on 01227 787787.
