The Vinyl Frontier: Screamadelica by Primal Scream

Hosted by Jeff Lloyd.

The winner of the first Mercury prize in 1992 this LP was a defining moment in early 90s rave/baggy culture. Berkshire was the epicenter of the early 90s Balearic scene and this record was its beating heart.

WHY? Hear a classic album as it was intended – in full and on vinyl

Mary Alexander - Meet Me at the Waldorf

Popular lecturer Mary Alexander presents the extraordinary story of two iconic hotels built on Astor feuds, fortunes and art patronage. Mary will take the audience on a journey back to the glamour and intrigue of the Jazz Age.

WHY? This is a free taster event, presented by The Arts Society, who are hoping to launch permanently in Maidenhead later this year.

The Arts Society is a leading arts education charity. They have a global network of local Societies which connects people to the arts and to each other. Their Societies arrange programmes of lectures given by world-class lecturers all of whom are experts in their fields. In addition, the Societies organise study days, visits and take part in a broad variety of heritage and arts based volunteer projects enabling our members to make a practical contribution to ensure the future of our artistic heritage.

Kathy Lette's Girls' Night Out

'Women are each other’s human wonder bras – uplifting, supportive and making each other look bigger and better.'

So says Kathy Lette, funny, feminist author, who invites you to her new show, Girls’ Night Out.

It’s a psychological strip tease taking us from Puberty Blues to Menopause Blues, with tales of love, lust, men, marriage, pregnancy, childbirth, mastitis, sexist bosses, teenage-daughter-wrangling, ageing, toy boys, making the Queen laugh, hiding Julian Assange in her attic and Close Encounters of the George Clooney Kind, en route.

So, grab your girlfriends and come along. Wit, warmth and full frontal frankness, guaranteed. (Men, attend at your own risqué!)


The Story of the MGM Musical

Award winning singer Robert Habermann tells the story and sings the songs from the magical MGM musicals.

The studio produced some of the greatest film musicals ever made including Singing in The Rain, An American in Paris, Kiss Me Kate and High Society.

WHY? Featuring over forty iconic songs from Over the Rainbow to The Trolley Song, and Show Business to Stranger in Paradise
