The Assembly in Leamington will host a rare UK show by the singer of a band which made its name which found fame in the 1970s.

Renaissance, originally lead by singer Annie Haslam and the masterful songwriting skills of Michael Dunford, were first acknowledged for blending progressive rock with classical influences and symphonic arrangements.

In 1978 they had a top ten hit in the UK with Northern Lights, which has become a classic radio favourite, still demanding regular airplay to this day..

Renaissance disbanded in the 1980s but Haslam and Dunford formed a new touring band under the same name in 2009 before the latter died in 2012.

The gig takes place on Sunday April 19 from 7pm.

Tickets cost £21.50.
