Spokeswoman Jill Elsworthy said: “Many of you will have seen one of the world’s most gifted improvisers before, as he is a firm Music Circle favourite.

“Not just the Circle either. Those of you who came to see Alexander Armstrong or the Sinatra Jukebox show with Gary Williams at the Capitol will remember the musical director and astounding pianist in both shows.

“Harry returns to the Capitol with a brand-new version of the show that was born in this theatre in 1996, launching the Horsham Music Circle’s 75th anniversary season and celebrating 20 years of a happy musical relationship.

“Since those early days Harry’s extraordinary talent has taken him worldwide with solo cabaret shows in the Albert Hall, Moulin Rouge, Birmingham Symphony Hall and the Manasterly Palace, Cairo.

“He has headlined at dozens of festivals from Barbados to Adelaide and has become the go-to improviser for the BBC on In Tune and many other shows on Radio 3.

“His ability to play any tune in any style on request has led to more than three million hits on YouTube and appearances with everyone from Simply Red to David Bowie and Andrea Bocelli to Charlotte Church. Expect an evening of exceptional entertainment, formidable technique and superb musicianship. Come prepared with requests for any tune in any style.”
