Clive's Guest Performance on the New SETI Album!
Clive has recorded guest solo keyboard parts for the forthcoming album of the Chilean band, SETI. The band's third album, 'Bold Travels' is now available for pre-order! SETI is one of several progressive rock projects of Claudio Momberg. This versatile keyboard player is known from bands like Taurus, Subterra and Quarks as well as his long-term involvement in Clive's Caamora Theatre Company. Momberg took part in numerous Nolan-related concerts and theatre shows around Europe and South America.
'Bold Travels' is scheduled for release this August! The album will feature Chilean musicians: Jaime Scalpello (vocals), Paula Vilches (vocals), José Luis Ramos (bass), Juan Ricardo Weiler (drums), Gabriel Hidalgo (guitars) and Claudio Momberg (keyboards, bass, guitar, backing vocals), with special guest performances from renowned prog celebrities: Clive Nolan (keyboard solos), Steve Rothery (Marillion) (guitars) and Damian Wilson (vocals). The album cover was designed by another Caamora Company artist, Ron Milsom.
Clive: "Another great SETI album from Claudio Momberg, and I had the pleasure of playing on this one! Good luck with the album Claudio!"
'She' Returns to Cheltenham this September!
This autumn the Caamora Theatre Company will return to Cheltenham with Clive's first musical 'She'. This will be the third production of 'She' performed at the Cheltenham Playhouse and with only a few weeks left, the rehearsals are in full swing now. The shows will take place during the weekend (September 2nd and 3rd): Friday evening, Saturday evening and a Saturday matinee. Tickets are available at the theatre or online HERE. Special weekend deals allow you to buy tickets for two shows and get the third one free.
Clive: "There are the Cheltenham Playhouse performances of 'She' coming up in only a few weeks. How quickly they have arrived! Rehearsals are now underway, and I am looking forward to our latest venture with this particular musical. I must say this may well be the last time we perform 'She' for a while, so try not to miss it." ;)
'King's Ransom' Cast Announced!
It is our great pleasure to announce the cast of Clive's new musical, 'King's Ransom'.

‘Beyond the Veil’ Acoustic Show DVD Pre Sale!
We are going to release an ‘official bootleg’ DVD of the acoustic show recorded during the ‘Fire and the Quest’ weekend in September 2015, celebrating 10 years of Clive Nolan Musicals. This show features a wide variety of Clive’s material performed by a stellar cast of singers and musicians. Clive plays piano, sings and entertains alongside artists including Christina Booth, Alan Reed, Paul Manzi, Chris Lewis, Paul Scott, Agnieszka Swita, Victoria Bolley, Gemma Louise Edwards, Verity Smith, as well as the instrumental talents of Mark Westwood, Scott Higham and Kylan Amos.
The cost of the DVD package (full colour cover and 2 DVDs) is £15 and it is now available for pre-order in our ONLINE SHOP! The profits raised from this project will go towards the making of Clive’s new musical ‘King’s Ransom’. ‘Beyond the Veil’ will be dispatched in August (at the latest).
Clive: “I hope this DVD will provide a wonderful memento of that terrific Saturday afternoon concert. I have compiled and edited the show in its entirety, ‘warts and all’, so please be aware there is a lot of chatting and story telling (you can get straight to the songs with the chapter selections). It also needs to be remembered that, sadly, the sound quality is limited because we only had the audio recorded on camera. It was a lot of fun doing this gig, and I really enjoyed working with all these excellent performers. With the challenges I now face to record the new musical, ‘King’s Ransom’, every sale of this DVD will be a welcome contribution to the cause… Enjoy the show, and thanks in advance!”
'King's Ransom' is Written!
Clive: "Well, that's it! My new musical 'King's Ransom' is now written!! I managed to write this one in less than two years (despite the eye problems), which is excellent. This show is epic on all sorts of levels and features some great new characters as well as some old favourites! There's political intrigue, love, hate, action, despair, hope and a little magic all thrown into the mix.
I will spend a month or so adjusting and developing the instrumentation and orchestrations, and if all goes well, recording can begin in September.
Stand fast, and set your compass straight... King is coming back!"
