Beginners/Gentle Yoga

Led by Julie Potter

This class is particularly suited to beginners, those returning to yoga having had a break, those with specific injuries or conditions or even those that consider themselves to be of a ‘certain age’ that might need a less challenging approach. We will cover general breathing practises, the basic and gentler postures, together with general information and possible discussion around movement and the potential difficulties we might come up against.

The aim will be to relax and enjoy.

The yoga I teach is an evolution of nearly 30 years of practice and study, with a broad experience of many styles and teachers. In recent years I have been moving away from ‘external’ evaluation of the postures and moving towards an ‘internal’ sense of the postures, moving away from the more used traditional approach of systemised yoga to a more experiential and ‘felt’ approach, influenced by teachers who have been inspired by the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli.

Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde

Presented by Isoceles Theatre.

First performed in 2006, this is a fast-paced adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel. It has enthralled audiences throughout Britain and Ireland and played to packed houses everywhere.

An experiment to separate virtue from wickedness in his own nature results in the respectable Dr Jekyll releasing the demon within. It is a malevolent force which will eventually possess him body and soul.

All human beings are commingled out of good and evil….
Edward Hyde alone, in the ranks of mankind, was pure evil

'Done in fine style… A good, vivid, popular version of a great story, told with notable passion' The Scotsman

'Every emotional nuance is wrung out of it, and a packed audience sit rapt at such conversely dark materials' Glasgow Herald

Intermediate Yoga

Led by Julie Potter

This class is suited to those who have been practising for at least 6. My intention for this class is to move our practise forward, explore different avenues and approaches to the traditional postures. We will be aiming to be going deeper into ‘awareness’ and ‘noticing’.

The yoga I teach is an evolution of over 20 years of practice and study, perhaps moving away from ‘external’ evaluation of the postures and moving towards an ‘internal’ sense of the postures, moving away from the more used traditional approach of systemised yoga to a more experiential approach. Whilst looking at traditional Hatha Yoga postures and pranayamas, I will be encouraging fun and freedom within the traditional structure, whilst taking into our awareness fundamental anatomical and functional aspects required by our bodies for maximum wellbeing benefits.

Dir: Damien Chazelle 2022 | 189 mins

A tale of outsized ambition and outrageous excess.

With a cast led by Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie and Diego Calva.

Nominated for 3 Academy Awards.

Roald Dahl's Matilda The Musical (Sing-along) (PG)

Dir: Matthew Wachus | 117 mins

Matilda Wormwood is a little girl with big curiosity, a sharp mind and a vivid imagination - and the worst parents in the world.

While her parents content themselves with trashy TV and dodgy money-making schemes, she loves to lose herself in the pages of her beloved books. Where they are loud, selfish and unkind she is a quiet observer, thinking up small and cheeky acts of rebellion and revenge.

On meeting her inspirational teacher Miss Honey, Matilda is encouraged and begins conjuring her own fantastical tales. Excited to attend Crunchem Hall, Matilda is surprised to find the school is an ominous and oppressive place led by the huge and villainous Miss Trunchbull.

Filled with an overwhelming sense of justice, Matilda dares to take a stand for what is right and teach Trunchbull a lesson she won't forget.

‘We are revolting children, living in revolting times! Tim Minchin’s genius lyrics make this a smash hit, with Alisha Weir, for all ages. See you at the singalong version’ Metro

Zoe Lyons: Bald Ambition Tour

Zoe Lyons has kept herself busy in the last couple of years by having what can best be described as a monumental midlife crisis. It involved buying a sports car, having a brief marital separation and running a 100k ultra marathon which really didn’t end well. Along the way her hair decided the best thing to do was abandon ship. It ain’t easy being a middle aged woman: try doing it with a combover. Thankfully Zoe has been able to explore the funny side of all these twists and turns. It's time to sell the silly car and try and put the wheels back on her life.

Zoe is the host of BBC2’s Lightning. She's known as a star of Live at the Apollo and a regular on BBC1's Have I Got News for You, BBC2's QI and Mock the Week.

Other credits include Celebrity Antiques Road Trip (BBC2), Stand Up and Deliver (C4), House of Games (BBC2). Zoe is an immediately recognisable voice on Radio 4 as a regular on The News Quiz, Just a Minute, The Unbelievable Truth and The Now Show, and also co-hosts Frank Skinner’s show on Absolute Radio.

Age guidance 14+ years.

Nic Meier (guitar)

An evening inspired by the music of American jazz guitarist Pat Metheny.

Nicolas Meier – acoustic and steel string acoustic guitar.
Alex Hutton – piano and keyboards
Bass - Tom Mason
Eric Ford – Drums

UK-based guitarist Nicolas Meier has carved a reputation out as one of the world's most original and uniquely talented guitarists.

Drawing from a love of Turkish, Eastern and Middle Eastern music, Flamenco, Tango and other genres, all mixed with jazz , Meier's versatility and musical fluency extends well beyond that.

Nic’s considerable talents drew the attention of rock guitar legend, Jeff Beck, who made Nicolas a mainstay in The Jeff Beck Group carrying him on two world tours during the course of the last several years.

Meier originally hails from Switzerland; born in 1973, to parents who are great lovers of the arts. Never short on ambition, Meier founded his own record label, MGP Records, in 2009. To date, he's produced twelve albums: as a solo artist; in various group formats (The Nicolas Meier Group; Nicolas Meier Trio; Eclectica!; Nicolas Meier World Group); with his heavy metal band, Seven7, and; in a duo format, with long-time partner, fellow guitarist and collaborator, the fabulous UK master, Pete Oxley. (Their 2015 release, "Chasing Tales," was a masterful, benchmark album, in the dual-guitar format.)

Meier’s sound is rooted in his love of playing jazz on acoustic guitar, especially his Godin nylon-string guitar. It’s a sound that lends itself especially well to flamenco and middle-eastern music.

These influences, and more, are brilliantly fused in his unique multi-lingual style. He also plays fretless acoustic guitar, the Saz (a traditional Turkish stringed instrument), electric guitar, steel-string acoustic guitar, glissentar (an 11-stringed fretless insturment) and a baglama. By 2022 a new World Group studio album called "Magnificent" came out. A 3 CD package including "Live" and "Stories" to promote this release, lots of UK concerts and a European tour of 11 dates opening for rock guitar legend Steve Vai.

This show will be a nod towards the influence of Pat Metheny and will be a colourful blend of jazz; rock and European folk influenced Jazz.

The Fabelmans (12A)

Dir: Steven Spielberg 2022 | 151 mins

In post WWII America, young Sammy Fabelman falls in love with movies and starts to make his own. When he discovers a shattering family secret, film making becomes his solace.

This deeply personal portrait of 20th century American childhood is inspired by Steven Spielberg’s own upbringing. It’s a coming-of-age story and exploration of the power of movies to help us see the truth about each other and ourselves.

Nominated for 7 Academy Awards including Best Actress, Best Director and Best Picture.

‘This moving portrait of the celebrated filmmaker is more inquisitive than it is celebratory’ ★★★★ Independent

‘Spielberg's period drama evokes wonder’ ★★★★★ Total Film

‘It’s a beautiful, tender and emotionally complex film, one which pays tribute to Spielberg's parents but also ensures their humanity through their flaws and failings’ ★★★★ news.com

Drawing on Coloured Papers

Led by Jo Hall

Choosing a different coloured paper for each session we explore how paper colour can be exploited as part of the composition. Within this we will look at line, tone, form, mark making, texture and pattern using a variety of drawing media. Initially working from still life objects, the first week from natural forms e.g. a sea shell or fruit, later in the course there will be an opportunity to draw a landscape in colour or make a portrait study using the three-crayon technique.

Some objects will be supplied for the first session or bring a natural form you would like to draw.

Please bring your own materials and scroll down for detailed info on what you will need.

Some papers will be available from the tutor at cost.

Tues 28 Feb - 4 Apr
12.30pm - 3.30pm

£120 per 6-week course

Suitable for 18+ years

Materials Info

We will experiment with coloured pastel papers and some smoother coloured drawing papers suitable for other drawing media. A small sample pack of papers for the first session (cost about £2.00) will be available from the tutor for the first session. Other coloured papers will also be available at cost.

Please bring: drawing board and clips or tape to hold your paper, putty eraser, plastic eraser, paper towel, spray fixative for chalky media (to be used outside only), craft knife or pencil sharpener, small piece of sandpaper, water pots if using pen and ink (plus brush for brush drawing with ink)

Drawing media: you will only need black and white for the first week

Choose from the following suggestions;

Dry media: charcoal and white chalk pastel, pastel pencil, conté crayon in black white and sanguine, any coloured pencil, or graphite pencil or block

Wet media: e.g. pen/stick/brush and ink, paint pen, black fine liner and brush pens

It would be good to have something from each list above. The different kinds of drawing media will be discussed at the first session. Don’t bring large tins and boxes of colour as we will be working in an almost monochrome way first of all gradually introducing more colour in the following weeks.
