Free Fire (15)

Dir: Ben Wheatley 2016

1978, Boston. Justine has brokered a meeting between two Irishmen and a gang selling them a stash of guns. But when shots are fired, a heart stopping game of survival ensues. An electrifying comedy-thriller about an arms deal that goes spectacularly and explosively wrong.

WHY? Starring Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy and Oscar winner Brie Larson

'Wheatley continues an unbroken run of quality, helped by a great cast and a startlingly effective premise' ★★★★ Empire

Neel Bakhle: I Hear You're Here

Tuesday 16 May – Sunday 11 June

Neel Bakhle's second show at Norden Farm continues his exploration of the ‘evaporated form’ or illusional space. In his new work Bakhle returns to the substance of mixed materials, using a sculptural flatness to elude somehow to a screen of lost physical space, isolated in each of its discoveries, more like an awoken thought, than depiction of the place itself.

Belshazzar's Feast

Paul Sartin (Bellowhead) on oboe, violin, vocals and Paul Hutchinson (Hoover the Dog) on accordion are Belshazzar’s Feast.

The duo start with traditional folk music, add a touch of classical and jazz, throw in a bit of pop and music hall, and top it off with wry humour for a unique live experience. They are breathtaking and wickedly inventive!
