Nostalgic Cinema: High Noon

Director: Fred Zinnemann

Stars: Gary Cooper, Grace Kelly, Thomas Mitchell, Lloyd Bridges, Katy Jurado


One of the greatest Westerns ever made. Former marshal Will Kane (Gary Cooper) is preparing to leave the small town of Hadleyville, New Mexico, with his new bride, Amy (Grace Kelly), when he learns that local criminal Frank Miller has been set free and is coming to seek revenge on the marshal who turned him in. He arrives on the noon train.


Dementia Friendly Cinemas have proven to be very therapeutic for people with memory problems and their families. Besides engaging the brain and stimulating emotions, being part of an audience enjoying a film helps people with dementia and their carers to feel less isolated and also challenges the stigma associated with the condition.


Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.

Coco and the Butterfields + Support

Coco and the Butterfields + Support

“folk-hewn pop, with gliding guitars and a strident vocal” Clash Music


If anyone ever doubted the ability of music to re-route people’s lives, a page from the formative days of Coco and the Butterfields will soon turn that around.


It’s 2012 in the historic city of Canterbury, where Songwriter Tom Twyman has a plane ticket in his hand, for the journey to a new life he’s mapped out for himself in Australia. Singer and multi-instrumentalist Dulcima Showan, meanwhile, has just left sixth form and is all set for art school in Dublin. Neither of them ever makes it though, because by now they’re in the early stages of a band that has very different plans for them.


The decision to stay was difficult at the time and yet so simple in hindsight, it saw the pair lead Coco and the Butterfields on a steady and unmistakable upward incline, developing an enviable reputation for their exhilarating live shows as their inclusive, acoustic-based sound has ripened to maturity. During the ride, they’ve played to enthusiastic audiences all over the UK and Europe, selling out thousand capacity venues, touring the island’s o2 Academy’s and appearing at some of the world’s most prestigious music festivals such as Glastonbury, Isle of Wight and Bestival! On top of this, the band have played numerous support shows for the likes of Bastille, King Charles, Scouting for Girls and Wheatus to name a few.


In recent years Coco have literally lived in their recording studio, taking the time to create a collection of songs that offer an honest and intriguing insight into their lives both together and personally. Starting with an exclusive premiere on Clash Music for their brand new single Monsters, within that description lies a tangible sense of triumph over adversity, and how a negative can be deftly orchestrated into a positive, in the story of Twyman’s tumultuous upbringing.


Constantly touring, constantly writing and never quitting, Coco and the Butterfields will be making music for a long, long time.



Support: Gentlemen of Few

Gentlemen of Few play an eclectic blend of old-time bluegrass and classic rock with skilful vocal harmonies and powerful lyrics.

Adapted and directed for the stage by Ivo van Hove


Gillian Anderson (X-Files, NT Live: A Streetcar Named Desire) and Lily James (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again) lead in All About Eve, broadcast live to cinemas from the West End in London.


All About Eve tells the story of Margo Channing. Legend. True star of the theatre. The spotlight is hers, always has been. But now there’s Eve. Her biggest fan. Young, beautiful Eve. The golden girl, the girl next door. But you know all about Eve…don’t you…?


Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production, from one of the world's most innovative theatre directors, Ivo van Hove (Network, NT Live: A View from the Bridge), asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old.


All About Eve is adapted by Ivo van Hove from the 1950 Twentieth Century Fox film by Joseph L Mankiewicz and the play “The Wisdom of Eve” by Mary Orr.

WISHBONE GOLD - Spring Tour 2019

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the formation of the original Wishbone Ash,

one of the most enduring and best-loved British rock acts.

Featuring full performance of Wishbone Ash’s classic 1976 album “New England”


Martin Turner and his band return to the concert stages to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the formation of the original Wishbone Ash.


The Spring 2019 Wishbone Gold tour will see Martin and his band performing 1976’s iconic New England album – as well as other favourites from the classic era of Wishbone Ash, including Argus highlights.


New England was written and recorded in the loose environment of a basement rehearsal facility set up at Martin Turner’s Connecticut home, resulting in an album that was brimming with live energy. With a mix of powerful rock numbers such as “Runaway” and “Mother of Pearl”, alongside melodic cuts like “Lorelei” and “You Rescue Me”, the album was an instant crowd-pleaser. The band’s twin-guitar hallmark had never sounded so vibrant as on the album’s instrumental showcase “Outward Bound” and New England highlighted all that was great about Wishbone Ash.


Martin Turner’s Spring 2019 shows will mark the very first time New England has been performed in its entirety on stage and this tour is an event that no Wishbone Ash aficionado will want to miss.

Cold War

Written and Directed by Pawel Pawlikowski ('Ida')

Starring Joanna Kulig and Tomasz Kot

Duration: 88 mins.

Polish and French with English Subtitles


Winner at Cannes for Best Director, European Film Award for Best Film, Director, Actress, Editor and Screenwriter and New York Film Critics Award for Best Foreign Language Film.


Paweł Pawlikowski follows his Oscar-winning 'Ida' with the stunning 'Cold War', an epic romance set against the backdrop of Europe after World War II. Sumptuously shot in luminous black and white, it spans decades and nations to tell a love story that is as tragic as it is moving, and as transportive as it is honest.


Pawlikowski melds the personal with the political to exquisite effect. Set to a soundtrack that takes you from the rustic folk songs of rural Poland to the sultry jazz of a Paris basement bar, it’s a wistful and dreamlike journey through a divided continent - and a heartbreaking portrait of ill-fated love.


'..a near-perfect film, an artfully crafted, flawlessly acted meditation on love, memory and invented history that is both deeply personal and politically attuned'.Washington Post


'..a glorious throwback – a film made with a verve and lyricism which rekindles memories of the glory days of European New Wave cinema'. Independent

Director: Nadine Labaki

Duration: 126 mins.

Lebanese with English Subtitles


Cannes Jury Prize Winner when it received a 15 minute standing ovation. Nominated for BAFTA, Oscar and Golden Globe Awards.


From acclaimed director Nadine Labaki comes a stunning and unforgettable new film.


In a courtroom, a young boy named Zain stands before a judge. He asks to sue his own parents for giving him life. The circumstances that have brought him to this point take us on a journey through his poverty-stricken upbringing in Beirut where he lives with his family.


Forced to live by his wits in order to survive, Zain’s life reaches a turning point and young Zain takes to the road. While looking for work at a fairground, he meets Cockroach Man and befriends a young woman who is working illegally as a cleaner and struggling to care for her baby, Jonas. Zain and Jonas form a touching bond but things get much more complicated when circumstances force Zain to make choices that will have huge ramifications.


'Capernaum' is a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit – a battle cry for the forgotten, the unwanted and the lost that offers hope in the most unexpected of places.


'Capernaum', a sprawling tale wrenched from real life, goes beyond the conventions of documentary or realism into a mode of representation that doesn’t quite have a name. It’s a fairy tale and an opera, a potboiler and a news bulletin, a howl of protest and an anthem of resistance. New York Times

Royal Opera Live Screening: Faust

Experience the decadence and elegance of 1870s Paris in David McVicar’s spectacular production of Gounod’s best-loved opera.


There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod’s opera remains one of the most constantly enthralling.


Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Méphistophélès. Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle – the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870s Paris. Above all, the music includes several of popular opera’s most recognisable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus.

White Wedding (featuring Bootleg Blondie)

By John Gregory

Presented by Harley's Aunt Productions

Directed by Katie Jones


“The outrageous, time bendingly funny play by John Gregory”


Featuring live music from top tribute act Bootleg Blondie.


Lead vocalist Debbie Harris (yes - her real name!) was picked out of 15,000 applicants to represent Debbie Harry on two shows of “Even Better than the Real Thing” on BBC1. She has the looks, the voice and the attitude of the original Blondie bombshell and, like her heroine, is typically outrageous on stage.


The show “White Wedding” tells the story of a group of accidental time travellers from the present day who find themselves transported back to the darkness of World War II. Apparently even the most expensive iPhone is of little use in such circumstances!


Only true love can overcome such danger. But who is in love with whom? And where to find a white wedding dress in the middle of a world war?

Edgelarks (Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin)

Edgelarks (Phillip Henry & Hannah Martin)

Edgelarks launch their new album, Feather, with a UK tour.


In April 2018, Edgelarks (Phillip Henry and Hannah Martin) retreated to a remote cottage in Ulpha, western Cumbria. They breathed in the mountain view, banked up the fire, and took their instruments out of their cases. Then they sat down, and wrote. In escaping the everyday chaos of busy lives, they realised how caught up in the misery of the 24 hour news cycle they were; absorbed in the heartbreak of the world, they had lost sight of its beauty. Tired of the navel-gazing tendencies of sad song writing, and the terrible events frequently depicted in the folk ballad tradition, they decided to turn their attention to an oft overlooked but vital facet of our lives: hope.


Swiftly, a set of songs and tunes emerged. Stories of wonder from the natural world; tales of rejoicing and long lost returns; and simple thanksgiving for their own surroundings and place in the landscape. Informed by world rhythms, British folk roots, and the duo's penchant for making as much noise as possible with only two people, the album is an upbeat celebration, an incitement to hope.


"Edgelarks continue to soar and fly on their voyage of innovation" Bright Young Folk


"A confident pair of artists who are able to conjure up slickly atmospheric sound-worlds" Folk Radio UK


“Keen, curious and concerned intellects are at work here. Hannah Martin is an enthralling singer; Phillip Henry plays all manner of guitars and the harmonica, terrifically“ Julian May, Songlines ★★★★★

Royal Ballet Live: Romeo & Juliet (12A)

Royal Ballet Live: Romeo & Juliet

Live cinema screening from the Royal Ballet. Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers encounter passion and tragedy in Kenneth MacMillan's 20th-century ballet masterpiece.


Choreography: Kenneth MacMillan

Music: Sergey Prokofiev

Designer: Nicholas Georgiadis

Lighting designer: John B. Read

Performed by: The Royal Ballet


Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end. Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.


The performance lasts about 3 hours, including two intervals.

The Canterbury Tales - Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

The Canterbury Tales - Bristol Old Vic Theatre School

Presented by Bristol Old Vic Theatre School


By Geoffrey Chaucer

Adapted by John Hartoch

Directed by Kirstie Davis

Designed by Alex Berry

WEST COUNTRY TOUR 2019


Following on from their wonderful dramatisation of 'The Mill on the Floss' last year we are delighted to be welcoming back the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School as part of their West Country Tour 2019.


This year they will be presenting their production of 'The Canterbury Tales'. There aren't many shows still delighting audiences after over 600 years but this is one. 'The Canterbury Tales' is a touchstone of English literature, credited as an important moment in the popularisation of the English language in mainstream literature.


A colourful cast of characters set off on a pilgrimage to Canterbury. On the way they start a story-telling contest and compete to tell their tales of love, lust, adventure and chivalry. Brimming with verve and energy, Chaucer’s well-loved stories are brought beautifully and vividly alive by the students from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.


All of medieval life is here, with the wide range of social strata rubbing shoulders as the Miller, the Steward and the Wife of Bath (among others) all have their tales to tell.


Opened in 1946 by Laurence Olivier, the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School has grown a reputation for attracting the very best in young acting talent and has some notable alumni to its name including Daniel Day Lewis, Greta Scacchi, Peter O’Toole, Olivia Colman and many more. The annual West Country tour gives you a chance to see the stars of tomorrow, on stage today!
