Show of Hands - 'Best One Yet'

Show of Hands - 'Best One Yet'

Autumn Tour 2021 -


Music legends Phil Beer and Steve Knightley will return as Show of Hands to captivate audiences with live renditions of their award-winning hits and festival favourites, two years since their concerts were cancelled due to Covid-19. The evening will feature a set of iconic signature tracks from the last 25 years, encapsulated on their soon to be released new album Singled Out, whilst the second set will bring together new material and classic Show of Hands tracks.


Announcement to fans from their management:

Over the years you may be aware that Steve and Phil have never worked for set fees but for a percentage of the total ticket sales - this has been their business model from the village hall to the Albert Hall and has enabled many of you to promote risk-free ’Show of Hands’ concerts yourselves.


However, with less than a month to go it seems that lots of people are still understandably hesitant about returning to live music venues and it is with heavy hearts that we realise that the projected income simply cannot sustain the larger four-piece line up featuring Miranda and Cormac.


So rather than cancel or postpone shows the evening will now feature Steve and Phil in their original duo format, with the first set focusing on songs from the forthcoming album ’Singled Out' with the second set being a mix of new material and classic 'Show of Hands' anthems.


We do hope that you understand the situation. Times are hard for everyone in entertainment at present and we haven’t taken this decision lightly, but with your support and goodwill we hope that this will still be a popular and successful tour and Steve and Phil look forward to seeing you out there.

All Is Mended

All Is Mended

Living Room Theatre presents 'All is Mended'


'All Is Mended' is a comedy with a serious side. A repurposing of A Midsummer Night’s Dream telling a new story of life in a care home about magic and remembering, resilience and forgetting, old age and young dreams. It's a shape-shifting drama, funny and sad, real and dreamlike, a tale of life and death and of course love.


The show is interwoven with extracts from our collected conversations, wisdom and memories with local elders from Devon’s care homes, their families and the staff. With just two actors playing all the parts, come and be away with the fairies (and Puck, Bottom & Co) for an hour or so.


Prior to the show (18th October - 1st November) there will be a linked free art exhibition “Old Hands @ Art”, with works created by our elders working with our 'All Is Mended' artist. And our book “Care Home Stories” collecting extracts from our work in Devon’s care homes communities: conversations, poems, photos, paintings, and a sprinkling of Shakespeare’s sonnets will be available to look at and buy at the exhibition and the show.


Sweet dreams 'til sunbeams find you,

Sweet dreams that leave all worries behind you

But in your dreams, whatever they be

Dream a little dream of me.”

Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong – Dream a Little Dream


“Let me be that I am,

seek not to alter me

Let me play the fool:

With mirth and laughter

let old wrinkles come.”

William Shakespeare

Police Dog Hogan.

Police Dog Hogan.

We can't wait to welcome back one of our favourite bands here at the Beehive.


Police Dog Hogan are a high-energy and eclectic seven-piece, combining fiddle, trumpet, mandolin, drums and guitars with four-part harmonies in an exuberant and genre-defying fusing of country, pop, folk, and rocking urban bluegrass. Much-loved Guardian columnist Tim Dowling adds his banjo to the musical mix.


The Sunday Times has described them as “wonderful”; the Telegraph named them one of its ‘favourite new bands”; Mark Radcliffe on Radio 2 said a “great night out was guaranteed” at their joyful shows; and veteran DJ Johnnie Walker praises their gigs as “a really good, fun time”.


Eliot James (of Kaiser Chiefs, Bloc Party, Noah and the Whale, and Two Door Cinema Club fame) produced the band’s second CD, and Al Scott (Seth Lakeman, Oysterband, The Levellers, Asian Dub Foundation) oversaw the new album, ‘Wild By the Side of the Road’, which spent several weeks in the official UK Americana charts.


Police Dog Hogan were one of only three UK bands invited to Nashville to perform at the prestigious Americana Music Association Awards, where DJ Bob Harris – in town for the awards – snapped them up for a recording that has become one of the most-watched YouTube videos on his “Under the Apple Tree Sessions” channel.


They’ve played at festivals from Port Eliot and Bestival to Kendal Calling and Larmer Tree as well as Glastonbury and the Cornbury Festival. Most shows on their last tour, from London, Bristol, Liverpool and Exeter to Salisbury’s City Hall were sold out and were rapturously received.

Nostalgic Cinema: Funny Face (U)

Nostalgic Cinema: Funny Face

Directed by Stanley Donen

Starring Audrey Hepburn & Fred Astaire

Music & Lyrics by George & Ira Gershwin

Duration 103 minutes


'You're going to have a Marvelous time!'


Sent on an assignment, New York City based fashion photographer Dick Avery (Fred Astaire) is struck by the beauty of Jo Stockton (Audrey Hepburn), a shy bookstore employee he's photographed by accident. He believes she has the potential to become a successful model. He gets Jo to go with him to France, where he snaps more pictures of her against iconic Parisian backdrops. In the process (of course) they fall for one another, only to find hurdles in their way.



'A timeless musical treat and the most fun you can have with really elegant clothes on.' -Empire Magazine


'The film fairly bursts with charm, the Gershwin songs are lively, Paris is as photogenic as ever and the existentialists are grubby to the life.' - The Spectator



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.


All Nostalgic Cinema performances have subtitles to assist full enjoyment of the film by any members of the audience who are hard of hearing.


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

Shylock

Shylock

Explore the tragic, funny and often unbelievable life of fiction’s most famous Jew in this acclaimed theatre production that has toured over 50 countries.


Written and performed by Gareth Armstrong, and directed by Frank Barrie and running at just 80 minutes, this is a play which explores the world of Shakespeare’s most controversial character, Shylock from the Merchant of Venice. The play examines religious and racial intolerance, the history of plays in performance and celebrates the richness of Shakespeare’s language.


Gareth, who has played leading roles with the Royal Shakespeare Company in the West End and at Shakespeare’s Globe, first performed Shylock at the 1997 Edinburgh Fringe, receiving astonishing reviews in the national press and 5 Stars from the Festival critics. Over the following 10 years Shylock won awards touring all over the world from Stratford-upon-Avon to off-Broadway.


“Armstrong is nothing short of incredible...It is an exceptional piece of theatre. Everyone should see it.” - The Independent on Sunday


“This is as good as theatre gets...It was undiluted joy and a privilege to watch.”  - Liverpool Daily Post.


“It’s all fascinating, a nimble analysis of the thorny, much-abused character and the great, troublesome play.”  - The Washington Post.


“It delights, enlightens and dazzles. With a leer, a wink, a shrug, he expresses more than words can say. In a word, brilliant.” - Jewish Bulletin of Northern California.


Shakespeare fans will kneel in homage and raise their arms to shout ‘Hallelujah’.” - The Dominion, Wellington NZ.


 “This is a performance which deserves to be sold out. It is theatre for thinking men and women, it is theatre of the imagination, of liberating emotions and, also, of bold thinking.” -  Kurier, Vienna.


“Gareth Armstrong is magnetic throughout...You need not be Jewish nor and Eng Lit expert to appreciate this: you need only be human.” - The List, Edinburgh (5 Stars).


The show is suitable for age 15 and above.


This show is brought to The Beehive through Devon’s Rural touring scheme ‘Villages in Action’ and we thank them for their support.

The Last Duel (18)

The Last Duel

Director - Ridley Scott

Cast includes Matt Damon, Jodie Comer, Adam Driver

Duration - 163 mins.


The Last Duel is a cinematic and thought-provoking drama set in the midst of the Hundred Years War that explores the power of men, the frailty of justice and the strength and courage of one woman willing to stand alone in the service of truth. Based on actual events, the film tells the story of France's last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon) and Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver), two friends turned bitter rivals. Carrouges is a respected knight known for his bravery and skill on the battlefield. Le Gris is a Norman squire whose intelligence and eloquence make him one of the most admired nobles in court. When Carrouges' wife, Marguerite (Jodie Comer), is viciously assaulted by Le Gris, a charge he denies, she refuses to stay silent, stepping forward to accuse her attacker, an act of bravery and defiance that puts her life in jeopardy. The ensuing trial by combat, a grueling duel to the death, places the fate of all three in God's hands.


Who else but Scott has the required vision and nerve, never mind the resources, to keep making films like this these days? A historical epic that even those usually wary of the genre should enjoy.**** - The Telegraph


It is as ambitious and memorable ... a storytelling experiment as major-studio films come these days. - Globe & Mail


It all leads up to the title duel which, even by the high standards set by Scott's Gladiator, is what you'd call a humdinger. - RogerEbert.com

From the ashes rises a Phoenix…or at the very least a couple of birds with tremendous style.


A shamelessly festive show celebrating all that is Christmassy.  From Michael Bublé and Tiny Tim to Frozen mashups and the return of the small and ever-popular Eskimo. Mad-capped, joyous and at times preposterous, this is an evening of festive frivolity with a tiny sparkle of magic that will delight the unhinged and charm the pants of everyone else.


Charlie Bicknell became a household name playing 'Delilah' in BBC2's This Life and subsequently starred as 'Scout' in Ben Elton's West End hit Popcorn. Continuing to work as an actress for the National Theatre and rep around the UK, Charlie then moved into cabaret and circus, performing all over the world.


Louise Innes is a versatile operatic mezzo soprano, who has sung at Covent Garden Opera House, Scottish Opera, La Scala, Festival Hall, and 10 Downing Street to name but a few.  She has recently been performing with Charlie in Londons’ Crazy Coq, Chelsea Arts Club, St James Theatre and all over the South West.

Nostalgic Cinema: White Christmas.

Directed by Michael Curtiz

Starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, Vera-Ellen

Music composed by Irving Berlin

Duration 119 mins.


Having left the Army following W.W.II, Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) and Phil Davis (Danny Kaye) team up to become a top song-and-dance act. Davis plays matchmaker and introduces Wallace to a pair of beautiful sisters (Betty and Judy - played by Rosemary Clooney & Vera-Ellen) who also have a song-and-dance act. When Betty and Judy travel to a Vermont lodge to perform a Christmas show, Wallace and Davis follow, only to find their former commander, General Waverly, as the lodge owner. A series of romantic mix-ups ensue as the performers try to help the General. The first movie to be filmed in VistaVision!

Kathryn Roberts & Sean Lakeman.

The 'On Reflection' Tour


2020 marked 25 years of making music together for this popular wife and husband duo.


Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have long established themselves as one of the UK folk scene’s most rewardingly enduring partnerships. To celebrate and acknowledge this milestone, the couple will revisit and reinterpret songs which span their career. From the early days of folk supergroup 'Equation' through to the current release 'Personae' with a nod or two along the way to their extra-curricular musical adventures, the evening promises a whistle-stop tour through their artistic journey to date.


Bonded by an unseen alchemy, Kathryn Roberts and Sean Lakeman have entwined their professional and personal relationship into an enviable class act of imaginative songwriting and musicianship.


Over two decades of performance they have never been trapped in a groove – always bold and innovative, mixing traditional song arrangements with their self-penned material which reels from the bitter to the sweet, the wry to the sad, the political to the passive.

Noble Jacks + Support

Noble Jacks + Support

With the fiddle leading the charge, Noble Jacks are out to take no prisoners with their high-energy footstompin’ rhythms, which have taken crowds by storm across the UK.


The Noble Jacks have been touring relentlessly, with sold out shows across the UK on their headline tours, as well as shows at major festivals including Glastonbury, Isle of Wight and Bestival, plus major European festivals. With their second album, Stay Awake, released Spring 2019, the Jacks went straight into the top 10 Official UK Americana Album Charts – with a sold out concert and launch party at the renowned Concorde2, Brighton to a capacity crowd of over 600 fans.


2017 saw the release of Noble Jacks’ debut album What the Hammer to much acclaim. A fiddle driven thrill ride, the band set out to capture the raw energy of their notoriously hectic live shows. Achieving radio play internationally, including support from BBC Introducing and Radio Caroline, the riotous album has become a firm fan favourite.


Hailed as the finest purveyors of folk-influenced Americana, the band were invited to showcase at last years Americana Fest in Nashville where they went down a storm!
