Colin Thackery Cadogan Hall

Love Changes Everything with Colin Thackeray

Sergeant Major Colin Thackery won the nation’s hearts as he won Britain’s Got Talent 2019 – for one night only, he’ll perform at Cadogan Hall.

When the 89-year-‘young’ Chelsea Pensioner started to sing he brought tears to much of the audience’s eyes. In his scarlet attire, with a row of war medals across his chest, he mesmerised the audience as he sung in memory of his beloved wife, Joan. Since the show, he has become the oldest person to sign a record deal.

This concert will see him sing his much loved BGT-winning songs and from his debut album, Love Changes Everything.

Tickets range from £22.50 to £39.50 – book yours here.
