Matt Dawson is perhaps best known for his glittering International rugby career. He won 77 caps for his country in total, including nine as captain.
Matt has latterly become a regular on our TV screens, winning Celebrity Masterchef in 2006, claiming the runners up prize in the fourth series of Strictly Come Dancing, and entertaining audiences as team captain on the BBC’s A Question of Sport.

British soprano Kate Royal’s numerous awards include the 2004 Kathleen Ferrier Award, the 2004 John Christie Award, and the 2007 Royal Philharmonic Society Young Artist Award. She has since gone on to become one of the country’s finest opera and recital singers –with appearances in Europe’s major opera houses. Recitals have taken her across the world and we are delight to welcome her with the UK’s most well respected art song pianist Joseph Middleton for a programme of Lieder, and art song, as well as operatic arias from some of the many roles that Kate has played over the years.
