Alive and Brel – March 2023
A bit of French flair is coming to Bosbury, featuring the music of the iconic singer-songwriter Jacques Brel, whose songs are famed for their emotional power and ironic wit.
Featuring well-known hits such as Ne Me Quitte Pas/If You Go Away and Amsterdam, the cabaret troupe ‘Alive and Brel’ offer an evening of stirring songs that have been likened to miniature films, laced with dark and passionate observations which paint a tableau of imperfect humanity. Brel’s songs have been recorded by stars ranging from Scott Walker to David Bowie and Marc Almond.
‘Alive and Brel’ have performed in theatres across the region, where Stage Talk magazine said “the blending of the three voices was particularly pleasing and gave the performance originality” while the Hereford Times call ‘Alive and Brel’ “a charming way to end the evening”. The songs of Jacques Brel are guaranteed to bring a smile to your lips or a tear to your eye.

Each garment is larger than life and all who visit the Exhibition cannot fail to be moved and impressed.
Each garment speaks to people differently. ”
