In 2023 Boy on a Dolphin celebrate the 30 year anniversary of the release of their first album ‘Words Inside’ and they are delighted to include Doncaster Little Theatre in their schedule.

The original four band members, John Reilly, Andy Needham, Pete Hiley and Darren Ford will be joined by new member Anthony Lomas, so expect a surprise or two, but of course they will be playing all of their greatest songs, including ‘Words Inside, ‘Walking Home, ‘Trapeze’, ‘Life’s a Blast’ and of course ‘Fire’ …
