Something About Always

With a career spanning from Play School to the London Palladium, Simon Burke is a national treasure. Be charmed by his irrepressible talent as he joins us at MELT.

With musical direction by Daniel Edmonds (Strictly Ballroom The Musical) this is Simon at his most intimate and accomplished.

This event is part of MELT: A Celebration of Queer Arts and Culture 2016.


…a beautiful voice and a presence that reiterates why he is a West End leading man...you start to wonder if there is anything Burke doesn’t do
