The Little Theatre in the scenic gardens of Holders Plantation House is the venue for a programme bursting with energy, featuring 9 shows of diverse music; jazz, classical, pop, world and folk, outrageous comedy, artful theatre and our wildly popular Dinner Shows on the classic Holders House Gallery.
Saturday 7th & Monday 9th March Cabaret Dinner
Two nights of music, magic and variety in the intimate setting of the Holders gallery. Over a three course dinner on the atmospheric Holders Gallery, enjoy at close quarters the talents of three internationally acclaimed artists all of whom need to be seen to be believed….

Wednesday 11th March The Music of Hollywood – Songs on Film
Award-winning pianist, singer, songwriter and film buff Joe Stilgoe pays tribute to 100 years of Hollywood cinema and the film music that shaped his own musical life. Beginning with The Jungle Book and charting a course through the most memorable moments of music in film, Joe and his remarkable band will give you the perfect afternoon at the movies. With Joe’s famous improvisational skills this cinematic show will be unique each time. Joe is joined by the massively talented Ben Reynolds (drums) and Thomas Farmer (bass).
Thursday 12th March Cajun Night with The Savoy Family
An evening of infectious traditional music from Louisiana and with some great tastes to match! The Savoys are without any question the first family of Cajun music, but fame and fancy titles aren’t their thing. Despite having played on some of the biggest stages in the world, they know that Cajun’s true spirit is more likely to be found at the jam sessions back at their famous Savoy Music Center near Eunice, Louisiana. The Savoys bring their musical joy to the Holders stage together with their spicy cuisine…
Saturday 14th March Cuban Night - Roberto Fonseca
Holders is thrilled to welcome one of the giants of the international jazz scene, Cuban maestro Roberto Fonseca. Instrumental in the global renaissance of Cuban music, Roberto is a world-renowned pianist famous for fusing Latin jazz, urban music, and African rhythms with the sounds of his heritage. Born in Havana in 1975, he first began playing the piano at age eight and since graduating with a Master’s degree in composition, he has taken the world by storm both with his solo and ensemble tours.
Monday 16th March Theatre Night – Black is the Color of my Voice
A play with music, inspired by the life of singer Nina Simone. Written and performed by African American actor Apphia Campbell.
Tuesday 17th March Classical Night - American
Soul and the City
A fantastically eclectic programme performed by two magnificent young artists, who capture the essence of the American Dream: freedom, hope, innovation and boundless possibilities. Pianist Christina McMaster and Violinist Lizzie Ball perform music from the Soulful South to City Sidewalks…with colourful splashes of Latin America. Music by Philip Glass, Meredith Monk, Gershwin, Piazzolla, Debussy and more!
