Cinderella

Cinderella

The Sparkling Family Pantomime


Honiton Community Theatre Company return to The Beehive following Snow White; last year’s sell-out pantomime success. This year, Cinderella is the sparkling pantomime for all the family.


Cinderella lives with her evil stepmother and ugly step sisters, but dreams of a life free from their horrid clutches. When Prince Charming announces he’ll be holding a ball to find a suitable girl to marry, Cinderella signs up to attend along with her ugly sisters.


The evil stepmother forbids Cinderella from attending the ball, but she has a bit of help from her good friend Buttons and her Fairy Godmother who do their best to turn her fortunes around. Can Cinderella dance with the prince after all? Can Buttons save the day? Will the ugly sisters ever learn the meaning of true beauty?


Join us for rip-roaring routines, outrageous costumes, stunning sets and chart-topping hits. Cinderella is the perfect family adventure this February Half Term. Last year we sold out before the show even opened, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Steve Knightley: Roadworks

Steve Knightley: Roadworks

As a long-serving troubadour of the folk and acoustic music scene, master songwriter and storyteller Steve Knightley has spent much of his life on the road, collecting songs, stories, anecdotes and observations – with the odd disaster along the way.


Best known for his work with the award-winning acoustic roots group Show of Hands, Steve has performed in venues from the Albert Hole in Bristol to the Albert Hall in London. His impressive back catalogue of songs are modern classics, still filling the folk clubs and festival fields, and forever influencing the next generation of folk artists.


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 Favourite (15)

The Favourite

Director: Yorgos Lanthimos

Stars: Olivia Colman, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Nicholas Hoult, Joe Alwyn, James Smith, Mark Gatiss


Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper.


When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.



Metro ★★★★★ "This is The Crown like you’ve never seen it before."


The Independent ★★★★★ "Consistently, relentlessly hilarious, Olivia Colman, Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone are on top form in this deranged court comedy"


The Guardian ★★★★ "Yorgos Lanthimos brings scabrous energy to this dark comedy of 18th-century court intrigue and Colman excels herself."

Colette (15)

Colette

Director: Wash Westmoreland

Stars: Keira Knightley, Dominic West, Denise Gough, Fiona Shaw, Eleanor Tomlinson


Unconventional country girl Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette has married a charismatic egomaniacal man of letters, 14 years her senior, known by the single name, Willy. Through his auspices, Colette is introduced into the artistic world of Paris where her creative appetite is sparked.


Ever quick to capitalise on talent, Willy permits Colette to write her novels only if she does so in his name. The phenomenal success of her Claudine series makes Willy a famous writer and Colette and Willy the first modern celebrity couple. Although they are the toast of the town, lack of recognition for her work begins to gnaw on Colette.


Set at the dawn of the modern age, COLETTE is the story of a woman who has been denied her voice by an overbearing man, and who goes to extraordinary lengths to find it; a battle of the sexes at the very beginning of the modern age, when seismic shifts were taking place in the roles of men and women.


More than a century after the publication of her first novel, Colette is still one of the best-selling, and beloved, French authors.

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

Mary Queen of Scots (15)

Mary Queen of Scots

Director: Josie Rourke

Stars: Saoirse Ronan, Margot Robbie, Jack Lowden, David Tennant, Martin Compston, Joe Alwyn, Brendan Coyle, Guy Pearce


Mary, Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart. Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I.


Each young Queen beholds her 'sister' in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence.


Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth's sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones - and change the course of history.

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.

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.

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.


Sung in French with English subtitles. A delayed live screening from The Royal Opera House.

White Wedding (featuring Bootleg Blondie)

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?


Love Comedy? Love Blondie? You have to see this!

Nostalgic Cinema: Born Free (PG)

Nostalgic Cinema: Born Free

Director: James Hill

Starring:  Virginia McKenna, Bill Travers


Born Free is a 1966 British drama film starring Virginia McKenna and Bill Travers as Joy and George Adamson, a real-life couple who raised Elsa the Lioness, an orphaned lion cub, to adulthood, and released her into the wilderness of Kenya.  The screenplay, written by blacklisted Hollywood writer Lester Cole, was based upon Joy Adamson's 1960 non-fiction book Born Free. Born Free, and its musical score by John Barry, won numerous awards.


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.


TRIP community transport can provide a lift to and from the film within Honiton. Please book a place with them on 01404 46529

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.
