‘Moonraker’ in Concert at the Wycombe Swan

Moonraker To coincide with the 40th Anniversary of ‘Moonraker’, Q The Music Show, accompanied by a one hundred piece orchestra and choir, will lovingly bring one of John Barry’s most beautiful scores to life.

The score of ‘Moonraker’ has never been performed live before, and the show will not be recorded. This is a unique opportunity for Bond fans, and should it be a success, Q The Music plan to perform a different John Barry James Bond score each year.

Due to the nature of the concert, and the significant cost(s) involved, the event is being crowd funded via IndieGoGo.

For the show to go ahead as planned on Saturday, 26 January, 2019, tickets must be purchased by Sunday, 6 May, 2018. Should the target not be met, an backers will be automatically refunded.

The reader Joanna Lumley had a small, unnamed role in the 1969 film of ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’, being simply referred to as ‘The English Girl’.

Toby Stephens returns as James Bond in the new radio adaptation of ‘Moonraker‘, which will air on BBC Radio 4 on Saturday, 31 March, 2018.

Official Synopsis:

Martin Jarvis directs this surprisingly up-to-date, all-star guided missile drama.

It’s 1954 and British patriot Sir Hugo Drax (Samuel West) has built an atomic rocket, Moonraker, vital to Britain’s defences. It’s ready for a trial launch. But after a double-murder, James Bond (Toby Stephens) goes undercover at Moonraker’s secret base. He and agent Gala Brand (Katherine Kingsley) discover possible treachery. Can they prevent a catastrophe?

Archie Scottney’s compelling dramatization of Ian Fleming’s novel is Jarvis and Ayres’ seventh Bond on Radio 4. Janie Dee, John Standing and Julian Sands return as Moneypenny, M and Q. Jared Harris is Head of Special Branch, Patricia Hodge a hearty missile expert, Ian Ogilvy a BBC man, and Nigel Anthony is a Peter Lorre-inspired Krebs.
