Romantics won’t want to miss out on these musical events for Valentine’s Day next week.

The Bull and Willow Room, in Great Totham, is all set to host two events to celebrate the romance-filled special day.

Next Thursday the 16th-century coaching inn is holding a Luther Vandross Soul Cabaret with acclaimed singer Matthew Winchester.

As well as a special candle-lit, four-course dinner, guests will be entertained by this great tribute act’s smooth, romantic soul.

A spokesman said: “Matthew was raised on many different genres of music, but soul and R&B are close to his heart and one of his idols of that genre is Luther Vandross.

“Matthew brings the spirit of Luther Vandross to the stage in his Luther show and has taken the show on tour all over the world.

“Audiences are always amazed by the way he delivers these classic songs in his own unique style and charisma while still channelling the great man through his amazing voice.”

He added: “Luther’s music is loved by millions and his music will live on ‘Forever, For Always, For Love’.”

Tickets cost £47.95 per person which includes complimentary bubbles on arrival.

Next Friday, there will be an evening of romantic harp music to accompany diners.

Hugely talented harpist Louise Binks will be in the Willow Room, at the Maldon Road venue, and guests can enjoy complimentary music with food from the a la carte menu.

Advance booking is essential for both events.
