Clive and Friends Back to France in June!
Clive: “I’m really looking forward to our next little gig in France. I haven’t done one of these for a while and it’s always a lot of fun. It should be an interesting combination with myself, Gemma, Robbie and Sebastien. Who knows perhaps a few surprises as well!”

Caamora Norway “King’s Ransom” Rehearsals!
The rehearsals for the Caamora Norway production of Clive’s musical “King’s Ransom” have begun. In February the cast of over 35 artists gathered to rehearse in costumes for what will be a semi-theatrical show featuring the live band, soloists and the chorus. The shows will take place in Autumn 2020 in Norway. Tickets are available NOW!
Clive: “Three cheers for the 'Viking work ethic'! Having just got back from the “winter camp rehearsal weekend' in Norway, I can say we are definitely in good shape for the shows later in the year. These guys worked long and hard, and the results were clear to see. Brilliant - Well done everyone! That was fun.”
"Election Night" Soundtrack!
Clive has been commissioned to write the soundtrack for a new horror film by the director Neil Monaghan. Nolan and Monaghan are currently also working together on the film versions of Clive’s musicals “Alchemy” and “King’s Ransom” under the title of "The Professor King chronicles".
Clive: "I'm very excited to announce that I will be writing the music for a new film, ‘Election Night’. This film is directed by Neil Monaghan and hopefully will give him and the ‘Suspicious Character Films’ company a good run up towards making 'Alchemy’ and 'King's Ransom' into movies.
Will this film score be anything like the musicals? No... not in any way!"
“Salvation Has A Name” Video!
In September 2018, Clive Nolan together with the director Neil Monaghan, and “King’s Ransom” cast members: Chris Lewis (Edwin Deeks) and Gemma Ashley (Eva Bonaduce), travelled to Norway to film one of the musical’s anthems, “Salvation Has A Name”. The group was joined by an extensive number of the Caamora Norway artists, as well as the Norwegian film crew: Dag W. Grundseth and Olav Urdahl. The filming took place over two days at the Høytorp fort in Mysen and marked the beginning of “The Professor King’s Chronicles” location test filming.
Neil Monaghan: “This is the fourth test film we have shot ahead of going into full production. This number, taken from “King's Ransom”, allowed us to test the viability of shooting in Norway as well as experimenting with some 3D computer generated shots. Our Norwegian partners were fantastic as ever and made the whole shoot an absolute pleasure. Thanks also to Chris Lewis who excels as Edwin Deeks.”
