“Unseen Wings” – A World Premiere

Ian Page

On 9th July 2022 at The SPACE (Sevenoaks Performing Arts Centre), we were proud to perform the World Premiere of ‘”Unseen Wings”: A Churchill Portrait’.

‘Unseen Wings’ celebrates the life and times of Winston Churchill and was written for us by the renowned composer (and our Honorary Patron) Dr Jack Stamp in honour of our 50th anniversary.

Jack has been fascinated by the life of Winston Churchill for many years and, after reading “Never Give In” by Dr Stephen Mansfield, was inspired to write this new piece. The piece includes narrated passages especially written by Stephen Mansfield himself.  

We were delighted that both Jack and Stephen could join us from the US for the premiere performance.

With fabulous narration from Vivienne Astall and Graham Stone as Churchill, it is an 18 minute walk through the life and times of the great man in both words and music ..so grab a cup of tea, sit down and we hope you enjoy it.
