Alex Hutton Trio plays Latin Jazz

With special guest Graeme Flowers (trumpet).

The band was formed in late 2019 and quickly began to work as the resident band in a prestigious Brazilian Club in Berkeley Square Mayfair. 

Taking the core rhythms from Brazil but also Cuba and the Dominican Republic, the trio plays many of the precise rhythms from these rich sources. From Sambas and Rumbas, to Salsas and Afro-Cuban the trio combines the more familiar repertoire of Puente, Palmieri, Jobin with more obscure composers Mendez and Ruben Bladez.

However the band's strength and originality come from their approach to more familiar American Songbook classics - and to revitalise these standards through this colourful, happy and rhythmic lens shows how versatile the piano trio format is.

Live stream and encore tickets are also available for this event - so that you can enjoy from the comfort of your home.

Uncle Vanya

Filmed at the Harold Pinter Theatre, London in August 2020.

Sonya (Aimee Lou Wood) and her Uncle Vanya (Toby Jones) while away their time on an isolated estate, visited occasionally only by the local doctor Astrov (Richard Armitage). However, when Sonya’s father Professor Serebryakov (Roger Allam) suddenly returns with his restless, alluring, new wife Yelena (Rosalind Eleazar), polite facades crumble and long repressed feelings start to emerge. As the conflicted family are forced to confront their despair, loneliness and each other, can the beauty of life help them find new hope?

Following its critically acclaimed opening in London in 2020, Sonia Friedman Productions’ stunning 5-star production Uncle Vanya, a new adaptation of the Anton Chekhov masterpiece by Conor McPherson directed by Ian Rickson, was abruptly halted as the world went into lockdown.

As many theatres across the world remained in darkness, Uncle Vanya’s exquisite ensemble overcame the considerable challenges of working in a global pandemic, returning to the Harold Pinter Theatre to film the ‘perfect’ (★★★★★ The Guardian) production.

WHY? Full of tumultuous frustration and hidden passions, but brimming with hope and optimism for the future, Uncle Vanya is a must-see event for our times

‘An exquisite production. Perfection’ ★★★★★ The Guardian

‘Toby Jones is superb in Chekhov’s great tragicomedy’ ★★★★★ Financial Times

‘A superlative company achievement – most of us will be lucky if we see a better cast in our lifetimes’ ★★★★ The I

‘This is a Vanya for our times’ Evening Standard

‘Ian Rickson’s striking revival. Such compassion, such life’ ★★★★ The Times

Jonny & The Baptists: Dance Like It Never Happened

This is a show about grief. This is a show about loss. Just not how you’d expect. Dance Like It Never Happened is the funniest, most joyful and uplifting show you will ever see about feeling totally bereaved.

At the end of 2019 we lost another election and our place in Europe. But worst of all for us, we lost a friend we loved more than life.

This followed by the year that was 2020, and our decades-long system of dealing with grief - ignoring it, drinking heavily and making jokes - we finally broke. Totally.

In their most honest and personal show yet, Jonny & The Baptists learn to accept and engage with their grief, telling the story of denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance through their trademark blend of silly, joyful songs, deadpan stand-up and riotous storytelling. Finding meaning, humour and beauty in the hardest part of life.

'Hilarious and moving throughout... Jonny & the Baptists will make you laugh until you cry and probably cry until you laugh, too. A must-see' ★★★★★ Sunday Post

'Wickedly funny' ★★★★ The Times

'Excellent, irresistible and winningly random' ★★★★ The Guardian

'You'll mainly leave feeling warm and fuzzy.... note perfect' ★★★★ Metro

Ajay Srivastav

Following the release of his critically acclaimed debut album Karmic Blues Ajay Srivastav returns this year with his follow up album Powerless.

Ajay Srivastav is a London based singer songwriter who plays a genre-bending mix of Indian Folk, Blues and Americana with lyrics that explore issues of identity, loss and spirituality. His performances have been described as passionate, healing and uplifting.

Ajay’s laid-back style transcends musical borders with a sound that flows from the banks of Delta Blues which influenced him as a child to the sacred river of the Ganges where he learnt raags from the Gurus in his father’s hometown of Varanasi – the holy city of India. Blending these influences, he came back with what he calls Karmic Blues.

As a musician Ajay has worked with artists as diverse as Jamiroqua, Gregory Isaacs, Zakir Hussain and Bollywood legend Shah Rukh Khan. Ajay has performed internationally from live venues such as the Jazz Cafe and the Queen Elizabeth Hall to festivals like Roskilde Dam Square and WOMAD.

Mark Watson: This Can't Be It

We've all had some pondering to do about the fragility of life recently, but don't worry, skinny national treasure Mark Watson has it covered.

At 41, he's halfway through his days on earth, according to the life expectancy calculator app he paid £1.49 for. That life is in the best shape in living memory... but one problem remains, and it really is a huge one.

Spiritual enquiry meets high-octane observational comedy as the 'Taskmaster' survivor, multi-award-winner and “No More Jockeys” cult leader attempts to cram a couple of years of pathological overthinking into an evening of stand-up. Maybe we'll even solve the huge problem. Doubt it, though.

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).

After the success of his stand-up show 100% Simon Brodkin, selected by The Guardian and The Evening Standard as one of their ‘Best Comedy Shows’ at the Edinburgh Festival, TROUBLEMAKER is the must-see comedy show of 2021.

Catch of the Day

Ireland, 1966. An ordinary skipper sails into the sleepy town of Dingle with a very unusual catch… 

Chaos immediately ensues and a ridiculous series of events are put into motion, involving the head of the Irish government, a publican who happens to be an amateur marine biologist, a magical dolphin, the actual Queen of England, and a whole bunch of really confused nuns. 

An unbelievable true story, Catch of the Day is a riotous romp of a play, all set in a West of Ireland pub. Built from the testimonies of those who remember, this ‘side-splittingly funny’ (The Irish Post ★★★★★) and ‘utterly joyous’ (Within Her Words ★★★★★) mash-up of live music, comedy, and theatre, is the ‘ideal show for a night out with friends and family’ (London Theatre 1 ★★★★★).

Following an award-nominated run at Edinburgh Fringe (shortlisted for Best Musical), critically acclaimed, sell-out shows in London and Oxford, and fresh from its home-coming Irish tour, Catch of the Day visits Maidenhead for the first time.

Bring your mates and your mammy, grab a pint with the lads from Dingle, and get ready for one craic-ing night out. 

One fish can make a big splash. 

Presented by Red Fox Theatre. Award nominated theatre company, Red Fox Theatre was formed in 2018. They make children's theatre for grown-ups, unashamedly silly, experimental and a little bit educational.

Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horrors (PG)

Nosferatu (1922) is arguably the film that gave birth to the horror genre.

Notable as the first cinematic interpretation of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, its combination of expressionistic acting and unforgettable images render it just as powerful and unsettling today as when it first thrilled cinema goers nearly 100 years ago.

Chris Green’s new score was commissioned by English Heritage for a live outdoor screening of the film at Dracula’s spiritual home of Whitby Abbey. The music is a haunting blend of electronic and acoustic instruments performed live by the composer and, combined with FW Murnau’s iconic images, makes for a genuinely remarkable and unique cinematic experience.

Chris has worked in a variety of musical genres including folk, theatre and early music. He’s a regular musician at Shakespeare’s Globe and was also one of the musicians on BBC’s Poldark, appearing in series 1 and 2. He also writes and composes.

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?
