The Standing Waves + Sadie Horler and her band

The Standing Waves Released their Debut Album “early reflectionsʼ in JUNE 2017.


Recorded in the South West with a line up of musicians from Bristol Brighton and Exeter, the record brought to life material written by singer Will Odgers, Producer Jolyon Holroyd and Guitarist Andrew Claridge. The album was completed with the additional contributions of drummer Damo Waters (British Sea Power) and importantly Debbie Brown who delivered the perfect elegant counterpoint to Odgersʼs vocal.


Q Magazine gave the record a four star review saying ‘ From Muscular and melancholy to slow country grace, this is a band that touch a lot of bases but never stay on them for too long. A remarkable, assured and gorgeous collection.ʼ


RNR Magazine also awarded four stars and said ‘Pounding…Haunting…Elegant.Sometimes a record is worth persevering with. This is just such a record.'


Americana UK said ‘These ten songs are a tidal wave of pleasure, polished and charming examples of a subtle mix of Americana genres, Theres Intensity, theres bravery too while maintaining a contemporary feel and universal appeal. Like a feverish dream you might never have had.ʼ


Spurred by this success, the band recruited musicians Jonny Cook and Miranda Sykes (bass) and Bruce Whiteley (drums) to play a sold out debut/album launch show in Exeter, and then a rapturously received set on the bill between Kate Rusby and Laura Marling at Moseley Folk Festival 2017, this was followed a capacity show at The Dart Music Festival.


The Standing Waves are currently midway through recording their second album which is expected to be ready sometime next year.


The band will be supported on the 14th December at The Beehive by the excitingly original West Country siren Sadie Horler in a rare show with her full band. Expect a spell binding evening.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (PG)

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms

Disney brings to life the iconic nutcracker tale.


All Clara (Mackenzie Foy) wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother.


A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s (Morgan Freeman) annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key—which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip (Jayden Fowora-Knight), a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers and Land of Sweets.


Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger (Helen Mirren), to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.


Starring Keira Knightley as the Sugar Plum Fairy and featuring a special performance by Misty Copeland, Disney’s new feature film “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” is directed by Lasse Hallström and inspired by E.T.A. Hoffmann’s classic tale.

‘Leaves you bobbing on a wave of happiness’ The Independent


Alan Bennett’s sharp and hilarious new play is ‘just what the doctor ordered’ (Daily Telegraph). Filmed live at London’s Bridge Theatre during its limited run, don’t miss this ‘rousing chorus line for the NHS’ (Observer) in your local cinema.


The Beth, an old fashioned cradle-to-grave hospital serving a town on the edge of the Pennines, is threatened with closure as part of an efficiency drive. A documentary crew, eager to capture its fight for survival, follows the daily struggle to find beds on the Dusty Springfield Geriatric Ward, and the triumphs of the old people’s choir.


Alan Bennett’s celebrated plays include The History Boys, The Lady in the Van and The Madness of George III, all of which were also seen on film. Allelujah! is his tenth collaboration with award-winning director Nicholas Hytner.

The Madness of George III

by Alan Bennett

Director: Mark Gatiss


Multi-award-winning drama The Madness of George III will be broadcast live to cinemas, in National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse.


Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights Alan Bennett (The History Boys, The Lady in the Van), this epic play was also adapted into a BAFTA Award-winning film following its premiere on stage in 1991.

The Peterloo Massacre was a defining moment in British democracy which also played a significant role in the founding of The Guardian newspaper.

Director: Stefan Herheim

Conductor: Antonio Pappano

Gherman: Aleksandrs Antonenko

Prince: Yeletsky Vladimir Stoyanov

In Tchaikovsky’s intense opera of obsession and the supernatural, Gherman is caught between the woman he loves and a destructive fixation. The Queen of Spades is based on a short story by Pushkin, and comes to the Royal Opera House in a new production that has already garnered five star reviews in Amsterdam. The production is set in 1890, the year of the opera’s premiere. In his study, Tchaikovsky imagines the opera into life as his own story, its characters giving voice to his unfulfilled desires.

ROH Live: La Traviata

This is a delayed screening of live performance from The Royal Opera House. Richard Eyre's stunning production of Verdi's best-loved opera returns with star sopranos Ermonela Jaho and Angel Blue as Violetta; the casts also include Plácido Domingo and Charles Castronovo.



Music: Giuseppe Verdi

Libretto: Francesco Maria Piave

Director: Richard Eyre

Designer: Bob Crowley

Lighting designer: Jean Kalman

Director of movement: Jane Gibson


From the thrill of unexpected romance to a heart-breaking reconciliation that comes too late – Verdi’s La Traviata is one of the most popular of all operas. Alfredo falls in love in with the courtesan Violetta in glamorous Paris society, but underneath the surface run darker undercurrents, leading to a tragic ending. The opera’s wealth of melodies includes the famous Brindisi and the exuberant ‘Sempre libera’ – both showing the lyricism of Italian opera at

its most immediately appealing. Richard Eyre’s production for The Royal Opera brings out all the emotional colour, from the giddy discovery of love, through painful confrontation to the inevitable conclusion. Lavish period sets and costumes enhance the reality of a moving story based on true life.

Chris Woods Groove

Chris Woods Groove

When Google book an artist for their event, someone described as ‘changing the perceived boundaries of the acoustic guitar’, you know you aren’t talking about your average musician.


A UK based instrumental phenomenon – guitarist Chris Woods, recording as ‘Chris Woods Groove’ and ‘The Chris Woods Groove Orchestra’.

Chris began his career as a solo guitarist, originally catching the eye of the music industry for his creative approach to playing; using revolutionary techniques and a hugely individual approach to composition. Endorsed by the most acclaimed brands he honed his skills performing at prestigious guitar festivals across the globe. Approached by Hal Leonard to write a comprehensive guide on the percussive style, which quickly became the standard ‘how to play’ percussive guitar publication, Chris’ reputation became international and highly regarded.

Since then his focus on creative playing has led him to branching out his compositional style to orchestra’s of all shapes and sizes. Recent projects for his ‘groove orchestra’ include Guitar Revolution (a national tour creating pop-up guitar orchestras) or Orchestral Evolution (a recent commission to create a contemporary and evolved orchestra for young people). A spontaneous creator and an emotive player...

Headliner magazine described a recent performance at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios: ‘tremendous – to say Chris Woods feels this music is a wild understatement, and it’s a genuine privilege to witness them perform’

Tonight Chris will be performing a collection of solo pieces ranging from spacey improvisational solos to explosive percussion-driven grooves.



Also....


Creative Acoustic Guitar Workshop with Chris Woods 4.30pm - 6pm (max. participants 20)

A workshop for all abilities and style of guitarists. A relaxed and inspiring workshop, offering new and fresh approaches in playing and thinking for all. The focus is to breathe new life into your acoustic playing whatever level you play at. Participants will leave having learned a range of exciting percussive techniques, enjoyed being part of a guitar orchestra and a whole lot more...


Chris Woods is one of our countries finest players and just so happens to be a world class educator; his book percussive acoustic guitar, published by Hal Leonard is sold internationally and is the 'go to' guide for percussive playing. He writes for various guitar magazines including Guitar Techniques and is regularly invited to the likes of the London College of Music to talk Creative Guitar. He's a friendly, supportive and inspirational tutor and this is an amazing opportunity to work with him before the concert.

Through The Decades: Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly

Through The Decades: Roy Orbison & Buddy Holly

Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly both grew up in the same part of Texas. They recorded their earlier work in the Norman Petty Studios in Clovis, New Mexico, even at one point recording the same songs ‘An empty cup’ (and a broken date) as well as ‘You’ve Got Love’ both written by Roy Orbison.


The two Artists brought a unique Texas influence into their music and through their creative writing for both an individual sound was born. Roy Orbison went on to write so many songs including ‘Only the Lonely’ & ‘Crying’. Buddy Holly in his short Career showed his writing talents, which earned him 13th place in ‘The Rolling Stone’ ‘100 Greatest Artist of all Time’, an amazing achievement given his tragically short career.


Darren Page teams up with Marc Robinson who both have careers dedicated to Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly, performing all over Great Britain and around the world. They have come together to create a spell-binding two hour show, that will entertain and uplift you with pure nostalgia. The authentic show, backed by a live band, is packed full of all the massive hits of both artists, with the addition of a few early tracks and rarities for good measure!

In 2019, Steve once again takes to England’s highways and byways to present ‘Roadworks’ – a show which builds on the success of his sell-out 2018 solo tour ‘Songs and Stories’. This is a stripped-back, one-man show that’s infused with wit, warmth and alchemy, beautifully illustrated by his trenchant songs of history, love and conscience. Anyone who’s ever wondered what it’s like to be a touring musician will love this rare insight into life on the road.


Steve says, “A life on the road certainly has its challenges, but I can’t say I’d do it differently if I had to start all over again. The format of ‘Songs and Stories’, and now ‘Roadworks’ allows me to share the stories I’ve collected over the years, along with plenty of observations along the way. It’s just me, a radio mic and a couple of guitars which is daunting and liberating in equal measures, and it’s enabled me to build elements into my shows which I’ve never been able to before. The reception from the 2018 tour was fantastic – it really seemed to strike a chord with people – so I’m looking forward to 2019’s tour.”



2018’s tour was a sell-out, so early booking is advisable.

The Phil Beer Band

The Phil Beer Band

The Phil Beer Band performs a unique blend of folk and roll trawled from Phil’s treasure trove of traditional tunes and American country rock.


The highly popular line up comprises Gareth Turner, Steve Crickett, Emily Slade, Greg McDonald, Olivia Dunn and of course, Phil Beer and promises to deliver a lively cocktail of folk, rock, country and blues.


The Phil Beer Band evolved organically in the early to mid 90s at Maisemore in Gloucesteshire. It was a loose federation consisting of Phil Beer (Show of Hands), Nick Quarmby and Steve Crickett, all of whom lived close to each other, and melodeon player Gareth Turner from Northamptonshire. There was a need in the community for a band to play local events and ceilidhs and, following in the tradition set by the Albion Band (of which both Gareth and Phil were former members) the band always interspersed the dances with the odd song. Over a long period of time, it has evolved into a ‘Folk n Roll’ band with country rock overtones. It is the vehicle for Phil to return to the electric guitar and to have a good time with his mates.


“An evening with The Phil Beer Band is fast, frenetic, feel-good and leavened with a good helping of humour!” fRoots Magazine


“Always worth a trip to see musicians of this quality - but it is the repertoire that makes a Phil Beer Band gig extra special!” Folk Radio UK

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.

ROH Live: Faust (12A)

ROH Live: Faust

A delayed live cinema screening from The Royal Opera. Experience the decadence and elegance of 1870s Paris in David McVicar’s spectacular production of Gounod’s best-loved opera.


Director: David McVicar

Set designs: Charles Edwards

Costume designs: Brigitte Reiffenstuel

Lighting design: Paule Constable

Choreography: Michael Keegan-Dolan


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 recognizable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus.



Approximate running time: 3 hours 45 minutes, including one interval. Sung in French with English subtitles.

Tickets: Adult £15.30, Student/Child £12.30, Family of four £46.30

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.



Tickets: Adult £15.30, Student/Child £12.30, Family of four £46.30
