Royal Ballet: Swan Lake (12A)

Royal Ballet: Swan Lake

This classic fairytale represents the battle between good and evil, and the attempt of love to conquer all. The magic of the lakes, forests and palaces is brought to life with glittering designs by John Macfarlane and a sublime score by Tchaikovsky. The Royal Ballet’s sumptuous production of Swan Lake returns to the Royal Opera House stage after its 2020 revival was interrupted by the pandemic’s closure of theatres. This classic of the repertory is testament to the late choreographer Liam Scarlett’s abiding love of classicism and innate musicality, which shine through this production.

The Outfit (15)

The Outfit

Director Graham Moore

Cast includes Mark Rylance, Simon Russell Beale, Johnny Flynn, Zoey Deutch, Dylan O'Brien

Duration 115m


From the Academy Award-winning writer of The Imitation Game (Graham Moore) comes The Outfit, a gripping and masterful thriller in which an expert tailor (Academy Award winner Mark Rylance) must outwit a dangerous group of mobsters in order to survive a fateful night.



The Outfit follows a pattern set by countless gangster flicks of the past, but its freshness is in the intelligence and surprise of the script. Like a well-made suit, it’s not old-fashioned — it’s classic.. - Empire Magazine


Movies rarely come as chic as The Outfit, a thrifty, continually unpredictable whodunit, fashioned with the same meticulousness found in the bones of a deceptively simple suit...- RogerEbert.com


Rylance’s heart may belong to the theatre, but the camera adores him. The old faker... he’s in a class of his own. - Evening Standard

NT Live: Straight Line Crazy (12A)

NT Live: Straight Line Crazy

Straight Line Crazy

a new play by David Hare

directed by Nicholas Hytner


Ralph Fiennes (Antony & Cleopatra) leads the cast in David Hare’s (Skylight) blazing account of the most powerful man in New York, a master manipulator whose legacy changed the city forever.


For forty uninterrupted years, Robert Moses exploited those in office through a mix of charm and intimidation. Motivated at first by a determination to improve the lives of New York City’s workers, he created parks, bridges and 627 miles of expressway to connect the people to the great outdoors.


Faced with resistance by protest groups campaigning for a very different idea of what the city should become, will the weakness of democracy be exposed in the face of his charismatic conviction?


Broadcast live from the Bridge Theatre in London, Nicholas Hytner directs this exhilarating new play.



Show running time is approximate at the moment, will be confirmed nearer the time.

It's 1943. The Allies are determined to break Hitler's grip on occupied Europe, and plan an all-out assault on Sicily; but they face an impossible challenge - how to protect a massive invasion force from potential massacre. It falls to two remarkable intelligence officers, Ewen Montagu (Colin Firth) and Charles Cholmondeley (Matthew Macfadyen) to dream the most inspired and improbable disinformation strategy of the war - centred on the most unlikely of secret agents: a dead man. Operation Mincemeat is the extraordinary and true story of an idea that hoped to alter the course of the war - defying logic, risking countless thousands of lives, and testing the nerves of its creators to breaking point.

The Producers

The Producers

Following the enforced 2 year hiatus of live music The Producers, one of the UKs top blues bands, resume their touring schedule with an appearance at The Beehive.

 

Over more than 25 years they have had various members on drums, guitars, harmonica and keyboards - all accomplished musicians always supporting The Producers central core of band founders guitarist/vocalist Harry Skinner and bassist Dave Saunders. They have released 11 albums, the first Ain't no Love in the World winning the Blues Album of the Year award, with the last London Blues being on both CD and double vinyl LP and a brand new CD 25 Years' being recently released.


They have featured in session live on the Paul Jones show on BBC Radio 2 as well as the Johnny Walker and Bob Harris shows, received airplay around the world especially California where they seem to have a big radio following and Macedonia where they once shut down the phone lines to a radio station after it played a Producers track and was inundated with requests for more!


Their exciting stage show covers all aspects of Blues from pounding slide reminiscent of early Fleetwood Mac, easy listening Country blues reminding one of Leon Redbone to the smokin' Delta blues of Muddy Waters or Howling Wolf as well as their own self written repertoire - the show pleases all dedicated blues aficionados. They've had many guests appearing with them both live and in the studio including Jethro Tulls Martin Barre, the Blues Bands Dave Kelly, Ben Waters, The Groundhogs Tony McPhee, Andy Fairweather Low and the brass section of the Ray Charles Orchestra including the Raelets!


They have travelled to Australia, New Zealand, the USA, the Bahamas and all over the UK and most of Europe, played at or headlined most of the major blues festivals in the UK, Ireland and Europe plus the Tauranga Jazz and Blues Festival in New Zealand, Freeport Blues Festival in the Bahamas and the Atlanta Blues Festival USA.


 As well as Harry and Dave the present band also feature popular sessioneer Ray Drury on Keyboards and 'Biff' Smith on Drums. With this line - up The Producers are still out there playing the freshest live blues in Britain today. Concerned with feel and attitude rather than slavishly copying 'hand me down' American music, The Producers move effortlessly between their own well crafted material and seriously reinvigorated classics stamped with their own characteristic identity, having developed an impressive reputation over 25 years that no one can ignore.

Andy Fairweather Low & The Low Riders.

Andy Fairweather Low & The Low Riders.

Andy Fairweather Low came to prominence as the lead singer in Amen Corner. The 60s saw them clock up hit after pop hit. Songs such as 'Bend Me Shape Me', 'Hello Suzy', '(If Paradise is) Half As Nice' are internationally remembered to this day. But if you were paying close attention you might have picked up a clue in the magnificent ‘Gin House’ to Andy’s future musical collaborations.


Since the early days Andy has gone on to work with Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, David Crosby, The Band, Elton John, Roger Waters, Dave Gilmour, The Who, BB King, Joe Cocker, Steve Winwood, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck, The Impressions, Lonnie Donegan, Mary J. Blige, Georgie Fame, Bonnie Raitt, Otis Rush, Van Morrison, Chris Barber, Jackson Browne, Bill Wyman, Sheryl Crow, Pete Townshend... and hundreds more.


Now following a solo path, his first solo album in 24 years 'Sweet Soulful Music' was released late in 2007 followed by 'The Very Best Of Andy Fairweather Low' which was released in the UK in June 2008 and the Live DVD followed hot on it’s heels. In fact Andy has been touring and releasing CD Albums since then and is building a strong following having now released four CD Albums, One Live DVD and a Three disc Box Set DVD / Double Live CD which debuted in the Amazon Box Set Top 50 in it’s very first week of release.


2013 saw Andy & The band opening the shows on Eric Clapton's European tour, headline The Americana Festival and complete their first tour in Japan with 8 shows in Tokyo. Their UK Autumn 2013 tour in support of the Zone O Tone was so well received that further early Spring dates in 2014 were added in the UK and Germany whist 2014 started with the band on Bob Harris’ rock show playing in session and continued with two UK tours, Festival appearances, a second tour of Japan and further German touring and a landmark appearance at Bluesfest held at The Royal Albert Hall which was broadcast live on Paul Jones Radio 2 Blues show and the next night they played a show at The New Theatre in Cardiff which was both filmed and recorded and was released as a DVD / Double live CD in Autumn 2015.


2015 itself was a year of consolidation as it started with an appearance in January at Celtic Connections Festival, contained two long UK tours, two tours of Germany, another Japan stint, a tour of Ireland and several UK summer festivals and one in Estonia but many people will remember that in May 2015 Andy and the band were the opening act for Eric Clapton’s 70th Birthday tour starting at Madison Square Garden, NYC and ending with a run of seven shows at The Royal Albert Hall.


2016 & 2017 saw more Japanese trips and European tours and also saw a few shows with an extended line up, The Hi Riders Soul Revue, with extra brass and Hammond organ players.


2018 saw a 41 date UK tour with this extended line up with remarkable festival appearances  including two drummers and in 2019 Andy was recognised as being among the top echelon of the world’s guitar layers when Eric Clapton invited him as a named guest to play at the Crossroads Guitar Festival, and Andy with the band completed another hugely successful 43 date UK tour.


A remarkable band, A remarkable Front Man ………….. Follow them into 2022 !

Fairport Convention

Fairport Convention

Fairport Convention have been entertaining music lovers for over half a century, with 2022 being their 55th anniversary! During that time the band that launched British folk-rock has seen many changes, but one thing has remained the same - Fairport’s passion for performance.


This year’s Autumn Tour will present a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and some surprises from albums old and new including their latest album, Shuffle & Go, which was released just before ‘lockdown’ in 2020.

 

Fairport Convention have won a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award and Radio 2

listeners voted their ground-breaking album Liege & Lief  'The Most Influential Folk Album of All Time'. Their story has been celebrated with television documentaries on BBC Four and Sky Arts.


The band features founding member Simon Nicol on guitar and vocals, Dave Pegg on bass guitar, Ric Sanders on violin, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, and Gerry Conway on percussion.


'Stuffing their set with a surprising amount of new material for a vintage act, Fairport are still clearly having fun and brought the house down.' - The Guardian


'Fairport is an institution, a festival, purveyors of memories, and keepers of the folk flame. But most of all they are a brilliant live band.' - Folk & Tumble

Cable Street Collective

Cable Street Collective

London-based seven-piece Cable Street Collective have spent the last year writing and recording new material whilst they get ready for festival season to return. Recent releases showcase the direction of the new album. Their first new release, Speaking in Tongues, features friend of the band Gregg Kofi Brown, of the legendary Afro-rock group Osibisa.


In 2019, building on the critical hype and radio play (on the likes of BBC Radio 6 Music, Radio X and Amazing Radio, among others) generated by their second EP, they toured extensively - playing at Glastonbury, and Shambala as well as a whole host of smaller festivals and venues up and down the country.


Cable Street Collective initially broke through onto the festival circuit with the release of their first EP, The Best of Times, in 2014, and have since built up a stellar reputation as a live band. Their latest recordings are songs that have been road-tested extensively, with back-to-back summers tearing up the likes of Boomtown, Bestival, Secret Garden Party, The Isle of Wight Festival, and the Lake of Stars Festival (Malawi), as well as those mentioned above.


Their sound mixes African-influenced guitars and beats with soulful female vocals, socially conscious lyrics and western melodies, creating an idiosyncratic alt-pop sound that’s all their own. Their sets are guaranteed to get everyone to their feet


Their music grooves like a bastard.” – Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music & BBC Introducing)


"Such a great live band." – John Kennedy (RadioX Xposure)


Music that makes you want to dance your ‘beep’ off”- Amy Lamé (BBC 6 Music)


Spicy indie pop with a tropical feel.” – CLASH Magazine

St. Agnes Fountain

St. Agnes Fountain

Christmas, as they say, starts with St. Agnes Fountain. Carols with a curve.


Since their first get together, to record the eponymous St Agnes Fountain album in 2001, the quartet; David Hughes, Fairport Convention's Chris Leslie and multi award winning duo Chris While and Julie Matthews, have brought musical invention and laughter to the star-dust atmosphere of the season.


In 2020, David decided to leave the band to concentrate on solo pursuits and whilst his presence will be missed, Chris, Chris and Julie will be keeping the Christmas Aggie spirit alive and touring as a trio celebrating 21 years together with a tour of the new material and reworking those old Aggie classics.


'The Aggie's' latest album, Night Of A Million Stars was released in time for the December 2021 tour with 9 brand new songs from the band.


Although the albums accompany the putting up of a thousand Christmas trees throughout Britain and around the globe as their reputation reaches further afield, it is, without question, their magical live performances that have endeared them to an ever-growing audience (tickets were again being sold for this year's tour as the curtain fell last year).


Chris While and Julie Matthews

Chris While vocals, guitar, bodhran, dulcimer, banjo, darbuka and percussion.

Julie Matthews vocals, piano, guitar, acordion and gazouki

The duo have been nominated ten times in the BBC Folk Awards in the 'Best Song' 'Best Duo' and 'Best Live Act' categories and won Best Duo in 2009.  In 2019 they celebrated 25 years of making music together. As the longest lasting female duo in the country there was a brand new album and an extensive tour of the UK to celebrate as well as numerous summer festival performances including the Pengwern Stage 'While and Matthews Take Over' where they curated that stage in August of that year to celebrate their anniversary.

Chris and Julie are more powerful and popular than ever in their 27th year as a duo and remain at the very top of their game.
