U14’s to be accompanied
Written by Tom, produced by Matt Hales (Aqualung, Lianne La Havas) and driven by his unmistakeable voice, ‘The Wave’ is a powerful album that has had the critics raving. The Sunday Times Culture gave it Album Of The Week saying it is “incredibly beautiful and affecting”, The Telegraph, “the most gorgeous, anthemic, uplifting music of Chaplin’s career”, and the Standard, the Sun, Q and Mojo all awarding it 4* in their reviews.
As seen on Later with Jools Holland, Tom and his band (Sebastian Sternberg, Rosie Langley, Tobie Tripp and Beau Holland) effortlessly swap instruments to recreate the album’s lush sound and poignant atmosphere.
This event is for fans only and the following rules are in place to ensure that tickets do not get sold on ensuring fans do not pay a higher price for their tickets.
Tickets are limited to 4 per person and photo ID will be required to be presented by the lead booker upon arrival at the venue on the night of the show. The name of the lead booker will be printed on each ticket. The name cannot be changed once the booking has been made.
The lead booker will be asked to present ID to gain entry into the venue.

Failure to do so will result in the guests being turned away. Failure to adhere to the terms and conditions may result in the customer’s order being void. There are no exceptions to this rule.
The resale of tickets is only permitted via the artist’s official resale platform Twickets. Transferal of tickets is not permitted under any other circumstances. If the promoter reasonably believes that a ticket has been resold through resale platforms not endorsed by the artist then the barcode on the ticket will be voided, prohibiting entry to the concert.
All multiple bookings will be subject to a per transaction handling fee, please note that all but one of these will be automatically refunded.
