Introducing P&O Cruises new brand ambassador Gary Barlow

Singer, songwriter, producer and performer...Gary Barlow’s many talents speak for themselves. And now, P&O Cruises is delighted to announce he has taken on the exciting role of brand ambassador. This pioneering partnership will fuse music with amazing travel experiences to deliver spine-tingling moments on board, with Gary’s debut role as musical director of The 710 Club on Iona.

As musical director of The 710 Club, Gary is set to make Iona’s intimate music bar the most exciting live music venue at sea. Showcasing an eclectic range of performances, curated to appeal to British music lovers, this atmospheric late-night music venue will offer an opportunity for up-and-coming musicians to get their break. This collaboration highlights P&O Cruises commitment to providing world-class entertainment on Iona that places music firmly at its heart.

What’s more, Gary will be stepping on board two Iona holidays in 2020, bringing P&O Cruises guests two exclusive performances on each cruise.  

Welcome to The 710 Club

Curated and crafted by Gary Barlow on Iona

“It’s all about the music.”

A place to immerse yourself in the seductive sounds of an array of musical genres that have inspired Gary over the years, The 710 Club on P&O Cruises newest ship, Iona, is a sophisticated bar that is being crafted to Gary’s creative vision.

Atmospheric and low-lit, the club will serve up live music with an unmistakably vintage vibe, stylish cocktails and the most important ingredient of all; a little escapism, to ensure the good times continue long into the night.

Gary is bringing his vision and personality to The 710 Club, exclusively on Iona. Exclusively for adults, its stage will light up to the sounds of its talented resident band; a group guided by Gary. Yet his involvement runs far deeper; to choosing music for the club, guiding future performers and playlists and even shaping the interiors and signature cocktails.

Having performed at countless pubs and clubs at the start of his career, Gary loves to see up-and-coming talent catch that all-important break and this is exactly what The 710 Club is all about. The club will showcase a new guest performer every month, giving new talent the chance to shine, while the resident band will weave their own spell with numbers inspired by Gary’s life, loves and musical style, creating atmospheric sets that have been crafted for the true music lover.
