Nerve (15)

Vee is just your average teenager: she goes to school, hangs out with her friends and enjoys draining her free time away in front of her computer.

When the latest internet trend takes over everyone’s newsfeeds, Vee is a little sceptical. In an interactive, online game of truth or dare, the players film themselves doing crazy stunts and the watchers fuel the frenzy, setting challenges for those who dare to take part.

The prize? Popularity. And money. At first, Vee is content to sit behind the screen. But when her friends provoke her to break free from her boring routine and join the game, she turns into a player.

The Royal Ballet Live: Anastasia (12A)

The Royal Ballet Live: Anastasia
Part of The Royal Opera House live cinema season.

An identity in crisis; a country in revolution. Anastasia is a ballet about one of the great historical mysteries of the 20th century, only recently solved. At the height of the Russian Revolution the royal family were executed, but afterwards a young woman appeared – apparently a surviving royal princess, the Grand Duchess Anastasia.

One of Kenneth MacMillan's first creations on becoming Director of The Royal Ballet in 1970, Anastasia is a dramatic and haunting exploration of Anna's nightmare of memory and identity. To music by Tchaikovsky and Martinu, we follow the events leading to the murder of a family, and Anna's confused dreams – or memories.

A powerful, psychological challenge for the principal ballerina, this is a rare opportunity to see a landmark ballet by a major choreographer.

Set in the 1930s, Woody Allen’s bittersweet romance CAFE SOCIETY follows Bronx-born Bobby Dorfman (Jesse Eisenberg) to Hollywood, where he falls in love, and back to New York, where he is swept up in the vibrant world of high society nightclub life.

Centering on events in the lives of Bobby’s colorful Bronx family, the film is a glittering valentine to the movie stars, socialites, playboys, debutantes, politicians, and gangsters who epitomized the excitement and glamour of the age.

Poignant, and often hilarious, CAFE SOCIETY, a film with a novel’s sweep, takes us on a journey from pastel-clad dealmakers in plush Hollywood mansions, to the quarrels and tribulations of a humble Bronx family, to the rough-and-tumble violence of New York gangsters, to the sparkling surfaces and secret scandals of Manhattan high life.

With CAFE SOCIETY, Woody Allen conjures up a 1930s world that has passed to tell a deeply romantic tale of dreams that never die.

Peter Knight's Gigspanner

Peter Knight's Gigspanner
"Magnificent…a feast of imaginative music" 5 ***** The Telegraph

"With his trio, Peter Knight breaks new ground and is second to absolutely nobody...ground-breaking, engaging, frequently astonishing, Gigspanner deliver a quite simply superb set" Maverick Magazine

"Gigspanner has taken traditional tunes as a starting point and rearranged, orchestrated and improvised around them to create fascinating new works. Their increasingly impressive sound is like no other" Folk Radio UK

Since his departure from folk-rock pioneers Steeleye Span at the end of 2013, legendary fiddle player Peter Knight has turned his full attention to his trio Gigspanner, and in the process has firmly established their burgeoning reputation as one of the most innovative acts on the folk/roots scene, garnering along the way a reputation for dismantling traditional music and song and reassembling it in an intriguing, imaginative and beautiful way.

Whilst traditional music forms the bedrock of the trio's repertoire, it is the approach that sets it apart...leaving enough space within the arrangements to spread and stretch the music in the moment.

The stretching of the music to embrace other influences is what makes it appealing not only to lovers of folk music, but to anyone who has an appreciation of beautiful and inspiring music.

Peter is joined by Roger Flack on guitar and Vincent Salzfaas on Percussion, both of whom are powerful and intelligent musicians in their own right.

2016 has been a fantastic year for the trio, with Peter receiving Fatea Magazine's 'Instrumentalist of the Year' Award and also the 'Best Musician' in the inaugural Awards as voted for by the concert going public.
