Due to the government recommendations surrounding coronavirus for people not to attend theatres and events we sadly will have to cancel Touki at The Wardrobe Theatre on Tuesday 24th March.
In this case we are unable to advise on a reschedule date but will email you if one is arranged.
If you would like a refund for this then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will issue a refund from the ticket supplier which will take around 10 days to clear.
The music and arts industry is currently experiencing a grave level of hardship surrounding the current crisis and we are asking ticket holders if they would like to waiver a refund to help with the ongoing hardships. We will divide this money equally between the artists, the venue and the promoter to try and ensure they can continue what they are doing beyond this crisis.
Many thanks for all your ongoing support and buying tickets to live music.

Who would have guessed that a chance encounter between buskers in the streets of Bath, England in 2007 would lead to a new musical adventure in 2020? Amadou Diagne from Senegal and French-American Cory Seznec hit it off that Spring day years ago, planting the seeds of a future collaboration in their minds. In the meantime, life embarked them on different touki (journey in Wolof). Amadou put down roots in Bath, got married, had a daughter, recorded solo albums and continued to collaborate with other musicians from Africa and beyond. Cory released a handful of albums with various projects, moved to Ethiopia for several years and traveled extensively before moving to Paris and settling down for a spell with his family.
With the recent support of an Arts Council of England grant, Amadou and Cory have been able to see their seedling shoot up into the light. Rehearsals in Paris led to a recording at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios in Somerset. A tour in the UK is planned for March 2020, followed by shows in France late May. And from there? The touki brought them together, the touki took them apart. Now the voyagers are reunited with the richness of their various experiences. Who knows what’s in store?
