Niyo Uthuba-Hatari

More info

I’m a singer/songwriter who grew up in love with music, it’s the only thing that’s been consistent throughout my life. I previously played the drums and took guitar lessons but now focus on Grades for Piano and Singing, recently passing my Grade 5 Singing Exam and Grade 4 for Piano. I hope to have a job within the Music Industry when I’m older, preferably as a performer, but I also enjoy the production side of music and, therefore, decided to take both Music Performance and Music Tech at college. In terms of my music, I enjoy singing and composing pop songs, as well as R’n’B, causing me to listen to artists such as Usher, Alicia Keys and Musiq Soulchild.

Dannydangerously

More info

Dannydangerously is singer/songwriter Daniel Martins. Like all good stage names this was bestowed on him sometime in late 90s when he was doing open mics and hosts started introducing him as Dangerous Dan or DannyDangerous, because nobody knew what he was going to do next. Dan's had many highs and lows over the years and is not desperate to prove anything any more. Dan is a great performer and his music speaks for itself. The music he recorded 20 years ago could still come out today and sound as fresh. From thought provoking hip hop to full-on Oi punk to electronic, experimental, to grunge to soul and rock, Dan's had a dabbled in all of it. He recently won Horsham battle of the bands three years in a row in three different categories: originals, covers, and acoustic. He is looking forward to performing at Reigate summer festival with his son Ayden on keys and beats.

The Reigate & Redhill Society Exhibition: Celebrating Local Arts, Performance and Talent – past and present

More info

The Reigate and Redhill Society was formed in 1952 as a direct response to the threat of extensive tree felling in the local area and the unknown future for Reigate Priory and the park surrounding it. At one point this was all planned to be built on. The society helped steer the decision to use the building as a school and to maintain the grounds as a community asset.

The Society continues to fight to preserve the old and to steer the new towards bringing out the best in town planning and community development across Reigate and Redhill. 

Over the festival weekend, the Reigate and Redhill Society (RRS) will be hosting an exhibition celebrating local arts, performance and talent - both past and present  -  in the upstairs space at Caffè Nero.

The exhibition will be up all weekend, so please head up and take a look.
