Hundred Watt Club - A Halloween Evening of Burlesque and Vaudeville

Hundred Watt Club invite you to peek inside their cabinet of curiosities and celebrate Halloween with an evening of bizarre burlesque, queer cabaret and sublime circus entertainment.

Hosted by our lewd and loveable strumpet Aunty Mae, with spine-tingling striptease from showgirl Velvet Jones and gravity defying circus stunts from Jamie Double. Meet burlesque clown Giddy Heights and her puppies, and dare to step into the madcap world of Griffin and Jones...You'll never be the same after a glimpse into this topsy turvy world!

Not for the fainthearted, this show employs and embraces adult themes, strong language and partial nudity with gusto. No refunds if it's simply 'not to your taste'! Glamorous, vintage attire is encouraged (we love it when you dress up!) but not enforced; wear what you're comfy in.

There’s no dress code: Hundred Watt Club love it when their audiences dress in their vintage finery and red-carpet glamour, but if you're more comfy in jeans and sneakers - wear them!

There'll be a bottle of prosecco and a pair of coveted Hundred Watt Club tassels up-for-grabs on the night for the person awarded Best Dressed. What better excuse to get dressed up to the nines?!

Age guidance 18+ years.

The Velvet Underground (15)

Dir: Todd Haynes 2021 | 121 mins

The Velvet Underground created a new sound that changed the world of music, cementing its place as one of rock ’n’ roll’s most revered bands. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Todd Haynes, the film shows just how the group became a cultural touchstone representing a range of contradictions: the band is both of their time, yet timeless; literary yet realistic; rooted in high art and street culture.

Featuring in-depth interviews with the key players of that time combined with a treasure trove of never-before-seen performances and a rich collection of recordings, Warhol films, and other experimental art that creates an immersive experience into what founding member John Cale describes as the band's creative ethos: 'how to be elegant and how to be brutal.'

Geoff Norcott: I Blame the Parents

The fourth national tour for Geoff Norcott, following on the back of Conswervative, Traditionalism and Taking Liberties.

This time Geoff talks less politics (alright, there will probably be a bit), but this brand-new show will mostly explore personal responsibility, parenting and who should take the blame when things go wrong.

Whatever happened to the idea of personal responsibility? In the age of victimhood, it seems like whatever’s wrong with your life it can be blamed on someone else. Governments, employers… some bigot from four hundred years ago.

Where did it go wrong? It has to be the parents. Every generation there’s an opportunity for a new set of mums and dads to set their kids straight and make a stand against whatever trendy nonsense is currently doing the rounds. But do we? Or is it easier to give into fear and the pursuit of a quiet life?

Geoff has realised he’s also a bag of contradictions. Raised on a south London council estate by two maverick parents, there’s plenty he has to sift through. His Dad was a trade union man who obsessed over stocks and shares. His mum was a closet chauvinist and far too frank on the subject of sex.

With a child of his own, Geoff spies a one-off chance for his family to finally get it right and produce a balanced human being, but can he filter out his own bollocks before it gets to his son?

Notan: Thinking in black and white

Notan is the balance of dark and light in a composition, deriving from the Chinese, Nóng Dàn, which refers to Nóng meaning thick or concentrated (dark ink) and Dàn meaning weak (watery ink). We will make notan studies using two, and three tonal values and discuss how these relate to painting in colour and printmaking.

References will be supplied or you are welcome to bring a couple of still life objects and/or any photos with strong contrasts to form the basis of your studies. You will need to paint in opaque grey and black on a white support. White and black gouache or acrylic would be suitable as detailed on the information sheet.

The Alpinist (12A)

Dir: Peter Mortimer, Nick Rosen 2021 | 92 mins

As the sport of climbing turns from a niche pursuit to mainstream media event, Marc-André Leclerc climbs alone, far from the limelight. On remote alpine faces, the free-spirited 23 year old makes some of the boldest solo ascents in history. Yet, he draws scant attention. With no cameras, no rope, and no margin for error, Marc-André’s approach is the essence of solo adventure.

Intrigued by these quiet accomplishments, veteran filmmaker Peter Mortimer sets out to make a film about Marc-André. But the Canadian soloist is an elusive subject: nomadic and publicity shy, he doesn’t own a phone or car, and is reluctant to let the film crew in on his pure vision of climbing. As Peter struggles to keep up, Marc-Andrés climbs grow bigger and more daring.

Elite climbers are amazed by his accomplishments, while others worry that he is risking too much. Then, Marc-André embarks on a historic adventure in Patagonia that will redefine what is possible in solo climbing. The Alpinist is an intimate documentary of a visionary climber who follows the path of his own passion, despite the heaviest of possible consequences.

Juan Martin

The guitarist/composer plays and introduces his compositions within the forms of the great tradition of flamenco.

His exquisite style is enhanced through minimal amplification to capture his very pure flamenco sound. He has recorded 20 albums, appeared in a Spanish film at 17 and has since made three films with his dance company.

Voted into the top three flamenco guitarists in the world by Guitar Player USA, Juan Martín has toured the world playing concerts from Shanghai and Melbourne to New York as well as in the Montreux Jazz Festival. Critics have compared his compositional talent to that of Albéniz, Turina and Tárrega. He played for Picasso’s 90th birthday celebrations and his books for learning the guitar are now translated into many languages with his original book being referred to as ‘The Bible’ of flamenco guitar.

The Alex Hutton Quartet – Featuring Josh Kemp (sax)

Magna Carta Suite

Alex Hutton (piano)
Josh Kemp (tenor/soprano sax, bass clarinet)
Mikele Montolli (bass)
Andy Ball (drums)

The Magna Carta Suite was composed by Hutton in 2015 to commemorate the 800 year anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta.

It offers a musical journey of ideas exploring the layers of history and landscapes from 1215 to 2015. The suite highlights the influence of Magna Carta as a founding document of the western traditions of liberty and democracy in this the 800th anniversary of its signing and its influence in the creation of the American constitution. The Music begins with a nod to early music (Palestrina) and moves through developments in harmony and rhythm as the ages move forward. There’s musical references to Bach, Chopin, Scriabin and more contemporary influences.

‘The form of each brief movement reveals itself as it unfolds, in the classical manner, with much attention to tone and texture. But at the same time there’s an impetus and looseness to the performance that is pure jazz... A distinguished example of combining jazz with classical music’ ★★★★ Dave Gelly Observer

The Dolly Project

A sneaky first peak at Take the Space’s work in progress with film, zoom, country music, classical music and two angels on guitar and harmonica!

A dyslexic woman, aged 60, realises, after months of hell working in a care home, that she can face anything now - even her demons of literacy. Niamh is ready for her first challenge - the words and chords in her Dolly Parton songbook. The iconic star is her hero and she’d like to sing Dolly’s songs at The Country Music Festival in Blackpool but she’ll need a lot of help which is why she asks the local choir master for music lessons. To her surprise, Norman agrees to coach her but on condition she joins his choir. Niamh has never sung posh music before and she’s scared that they’ll all find out about her.

This is the story of a woman, who with grit and courage, resolves to grab a bigger life before it’s too late; a journey of transformation, inspired by Dolly Parton’s own narrative. This is also the story of an unlikely friendship; a woman and a man, both lonely and isolated, learning how to live with grief.

We’re inviting our audience to be part of the creative process and contribute to a post show discussion, chaired by Jane Corry, artistic director of The Farm who with her team are supporting us in testing out this workshop pilot #dyslexia, #DollyParton #C21stPygmalion #newplays #ArtsCouncilEngland #NationalLotteryAward

Anything Goes - The Musical

Encore screenings from the Barbican.

Don’t miss Anything Goes, ‘the show of the year’ (★★★★★ The Telegraph) and a ‘fizzing tonic for our times’ (★★★★★ The Guardian) when it sails into cinemas nationwide.

Filmed live at the Barbican in London, this major new 5-star production of the classic musical comedy features an all-star cast led by renowned Broadway royalty Sutton Foster reprising her Tony Award-winning performance as Reno Sweeney, alongside three-time Olivier Award and Tony Award winner Robert Lindsay (My Family), Evening Standard Theatre Award winner Felicity Kendal (The Good Life) and beloved West End Legend Gary Wilmot (Chicago).

A heart-warming romance spectacular dance routines and some of theatre’s most memorable songs, Anything Goes is ‘a joyously shipshape revival’ (★★★★★ The Observer).

When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love... proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, a comical disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail.

This hilarious musical romp across the Atlantic, directed by the multi-award-winning Broadway director and choreographer Kathleen Marshall, features Cole Porter’s joyful score, including I Get A Kick Out of You, You’re the Top and the show stopping Anything Goes. The ‘musical equivalent of sipping one glass of champagne after another’ (★★★★★ The Times), Anything Goes will take you back to the Golden Age of high society on the seas from the comfort of your cinema seat.

Keith James in concert: The Songs of Leonard Cohen

‘There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in’ Cohen’s most memorable and visionary line from his song ANTHEM.

If ever there was a sentence in modern poetry to reflect on and give hope and understanding to us all, it is this line. This Concert begins with ANTHEM.

Enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural, songwriter Leonard Cohen was an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose, wry humour and the courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty with the stroke of each word.

The chilling announcement of Leonard's death marked the end of an era. His music befriended an entire generation. Within every line of his writing, he has been challenging us to listen more carefully, speak more thoughtfully, think more deeply and recognize our own fragility. Our World misses him very much.

With a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way and an undying love of the ‘pure song’ Keith James gives you a concert of Cohen’s amazing material in the most intimate and sensitive way imaginable, exposing the solitary inner strength of his greatest songs in their original perfect form. Keith has performed an extensive tour of this concert in Theatres and Arts Centres across the UK, giving almost 500 concerts – close to 150,000 people. This has proved to be one of the greatest honours in Keith James’ 40 year career. Keith lives in Powys, Wales and sometimes in Andalusia, Spain.

Included in the concert are Cohen’s well-known songs: Famous Blue Raincoat, Sisters of Mercy, Suzanne, and Hallelujah alongside his rarer and profound writing such as Who by Fire, Joan of Arc and Secret Life. Also included are songs from his posthumous album Thanks for the Dance such as What happens to the Heart and Keith’s dramatic performances based on the work of Federico Garcia Lorca – Cohen’s greatest influence. Keith has also transcribed into song one of Leonard’s poems from his collection ‘Book of longing’ written whilst on retreat during the 1990s.

‘Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear’ The Independent

‘Good work! Glad you are keeping Leonard’s songs alive’ Sylvie Simmons, Biographer – The Life of Leonard Cohen

‘Keith James has become a pillar of trust. A sublimely intimate and engaging voice’ Sunday Times

Luke Kempner: Macho Macho Man

Star of Spitting Image, Steph’s Packed Lunch and with over 10 million views of his online videos, Luke Kempner is one of the UK’s hottest mimics and stand-up comics.

With a hilariously razor sharp roster of contemporary impressions ranging from Piers Morgan and Bojo to Ru Paul, Luke has become a household name and is bringing his highly anticipated brand new show, Macho Macho Man on the road.

Luke is a Macho Macho Man. He came up with the title whilst listening to his Les Mis album for the 28,000th time. Luke tries to work out what masculinity really means with the help of Louis Theroux, the cast of Downton Abbey and even Jürgen Klopp. Luke struggles to fit in, between turning up to a dance audition in football boots to falling in love with a 'cool guy' that sits in the row in front of him at the football. Will Luke ever become the Macho Macho Man he dreams of?

Don’t miss this remarkable one-man show from one of Britain’s most exciting, new comedy talents. Macho Macho Man follows Luke’s previous show House of Faces, which sold out at the Edinburgh Fringe and toured nationwide in 2019.

Simon Brodkin – Troublemaker

World-famous prankster and creator of the hugely popular Lee Nelson, is back on stage with TROUBLEMAKER, his sensational new stand-up show.

After showering Sepp Blatter with banknotes, upstaging Kanye West at Glastonbury, and handing Theresa May her P45, the critically acclaimed comedian explores why trouble has followed him from primary school through medical school to lockdown homeschool. And what it’s like to be chased by Donald Trump’s bodyguards, how to make the police laugh while they’re arresting you, and what to do when you’re outed as a Jew by the Ku Klux Klan.

Simon is one of Britain’s most loved comedians following his smash hit BBC shows Lee Nelson’s Well Good Show & Well Funny People, Channel 4’s award-nominated Britain’s Biggest Hoaxer and multiple TV appearances (Live at the Apollo, Sunday Night at the Palladium, The John Bishop Christmas Show, Children In Need, & Channel 4’s Comedy Gala).

Mike Bubbins: Throwback

Mike Bubbins, star of hit podcast The Socially Distant Sports Bar, and of BBC television comedies Mammoth, Tourist Trap and The Unexplainers, unleashes THROWBACK, his first ever solo UK stand-up tour. And things may never be the same again.

THROWBACK is a powerful, thought-provoking, visceral hour of stand-up comedy, that pushes boundaries, defies neat descriptions and challenges the audience...

AS IF IT IS!

It’s actually an hour and a half of really funny stories, pretty impressive characterisations, possibly a song (he said he’ll see how that goes), a bit of nostalgia about the good old days, a bit of optimism about the good new days, and Mike generally having a laugh about life and not taking himself, or anything else, too seriously. Having said that, he may, at some point in the show, get very annoyed at berks, whether in the past, the present, or the future. Very annoyed.

So basically THROWBACK is a comedy show about Bubbins sharing, and bringing to life, the stuff that he finds funny. As comedy concepts go, it’s a pretty straightforward one, really.

‘They asked me to do a UK comedy tour, called THROWBACK...and so I did.’  Mike Bubbins

Disraeli - Queen Victoria’s Favourite Prime Minister

A play written and performed by Jeff Rozelaar

“We are all dreadfully disgusted at the prospect of a Jew for our Prime Minister.”
So declared Lady Palmerston when Benjamin Disraeli was given the keys to No.10 Downing Street.

This controversial characters 'intrusion' into the heart of the Victorian 'Establishment' is related imaginatively in this one-man play.

It includes references to Hughenden Manor which Disraeli acquired and lived in. The property is a very popular National Trust venue in the South East of England.
