Review of Amanda Rheaume

Overall rating: 4.5 Verified review

Not having been to The Convent before we were amazed at what an unusual venue it was and impressed at what Matt, the owner, is managing to create from the building. We were given a very friendly welcome by another Matt on arrival who told us a lot about the building and what they were trying to do in the future. The concert in The Chapel, despite being somewhat cold, was wonderful and we really enjoyed watching and listening to Amanda and her accompanists, both who were excellent. Amanda herself had a brilliant voice and was full of energy and fun and her little stories preceding each song were lovely. The only criticism would be that we couldn't hear all the words to her songs, maybe because of the backing music being just a little loud, otherwise an extremely different and enjoyable evening. We will certainly visit again.

The Convent venue information

The Convent, situated in South Woodchester near Stroud and the former home of Poor Clares Convent, is a spectacular grade II listed venue currently undergoing an extensive 3.5m redevelopment.

The first part of the exciting development launched at the end of 2013; a brand new private members' club giving members the chance to enjoy exclusive access to a completely renovated lounge and bar area, with live jazz from international calibre performers on Friday and Saturday nights.

Previous acts to have already graced The Convent include Lisa Simone, Ed Harcourt, Sarah Jane Morris, Boo Hewerdine and more; theatre productions and other special events will be staged on an ongoing basis; and visitors can also expect to see specialist exhibitions running along the cloister walls.

Boasting extensive gardens, an orchard and grazing land, original architecture and period features around every corner, The Convent is a truly unique setting and one of Gloucestershire’s most exciting live music hubs.
Access to the bar, lounge and chapel events are free for members, or from 10 for the public.
