The biggest selling UK country act of all time, The Shires, first entered the history books in 2015, when their debut album Brave became the first ever British country album to enter the UK Top Ten. Their second album My Universe also broke new ground by becoming the fastest-selling British country album of all time and reached the top three in the UK chart.
After an incredible four years, Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes – hailing from Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire – have fast become a firm favourite in the UK country music scene. And now they’re making their mark in Nashville too.
With two gold certified albums under their belt and 9 playlisted tracks across BBC Music, The Shires are back and they’re raring to go.
The Princess Theatre first opened its doors on Wednesday 7 June 1961. Top of the bill on the opening night were the late, great Tommy Cooper and the legendary Morecombe & Wise. In 1963 The Beatles appeared live on stage singing the then newly released single “She Loves You” causing some hysteria in the town!
The Princess Theatre is South Devon’s largest theatre with a seating capacity of 1,491. Big musical productions that have thrilled our audiences include Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Chicago, Starlight Express, Rocky Horror, Cats, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Icons of the stage and screen Sir Roger Moore, Elaine Page, Joan Collins and the beloved Joan Rivers, have also graced our stage. Comedians Jimmy Carr, Alan Carr and Dawn French have performed here too and chart toppers Mumford & Sons, Jamie Cullum and Ronan Keating have included the theatre on their UK tours.
