Bat Outta Hell


The fascinating and immensely talented Craig Halford is appearing as Meatloaf at The Earl of Doncaster Hotel this summer. The show, which takes place in our art deco Ballroom on Friday 19th May 2017 from 7:30pm, will be the very first time the artist has performed at the Hotel.

Craig Halford has built a robust reputation for his impeccable Meatloaf appearances having been on tour in the Midlands for the last twenty years. The singer, with years of practice and experience, has fine tuned the humour and exhilaration expected from Meatloaf himself.

In 2005 Craig Halford came to national attention through the nation’s television screens, appearing as Meatloaf on the Stars In Their Eyes show.  On stage the artist gave a breathtaking rendition of ‘I would do anything for love (but I won’t do that)’ which set the benchmark as to why he is revered as one of the United Kingdom’s top Meatloaf impersonators. You can see the full video, courtesy of Adrian Marx, on Youtube by clicking here.

Guests who come along are in for a rock and roll journey spanning the highlights of Meatloaf’s discography. From ‘Bat outta hell’ to ‘Dead ringer for love’, this show will have something for every Meatloaf fan. Craig will also be appropriately dressed in the iconic clothing and accessories similar to those of the rock legend.

Don’t just take our word for it. The official website of the full band Craig Halford is the frontman for is full of fabulous reviews. Take a look on the website here. The show at The Earl of Doncaster Hotel however will be a unique and intimate duo performance, as Craig Halford is joined by a female vocalist on stage throughout the evening.

As well as the show itself attendees will be indulging in a 3 course meal before the live entertainment. Our Chef’s have pieced together a delicious menu for the evening.
