Theatre

Team Viking is a wonderful one man show that blends heart-lifting, heartbreaking and laugh-out-loud moments as it tells the true story of when James’s best friend Tom was diagnosed with heart cancer and given three months to live. His last wish was to be given a full viking burial. Ever since its debut at the Fringe this performance has got rave reviews, as this year proves no different. Andrew Haydon from Postcards from the Gods wrote “…it’s worth saying at the outset: team viking is one of the best things i’ve ever seen. period.

We also have Factory Girls, adapted by the Yangson Project and produced by the Maltings, which is a charming, beautiful and thoughtfully crafted physical-theatre production created by one of South Korea’s rising stars. It follows the story of factory girl Oksun who, when ordered by a foreman to spy on her friend suspected of rallying the workers, decides the time has come to find her voice. Combining spoken word (in Korean with English surtitles), movement and sound, an ensemble cast of four performers bring Oksun’s story to life. A unique opportunity to see this exciting company’s first UK performance!

Film

We have a great line-up for you this season that showcases the variety that cinema has to offer, from blockbusters that really need to be seen on the big screen to smaller independent productions you may never have found yourself. Come and relax after a long day at our 8pm showings. You can even pre-order a homemade pizza for just £8.50 at the Riverside Café so you don’t have to worry about cooking.

We want to make sure that as many people as possible can come and enjoy our films so we are now subtitling selected screenings. To find out more and to book any of our films click here.

Churchill covers the 96 hours before the WWII invasion of Normandy with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill struggling with his reservations with Operation Overlord and his increasingly marginalized role in the war effort. Brian Cox, in the titular role, has been widely praised for his performance as Churchill with the telegraph calling it a ‘restlessly smart interrogation of the statesman’s image’.

Brendon Gleeson plays a grumpy person on a mission in Hampstead, a film based on the true story of of Harry Hallowes, a reclusive man who claimed squatters rights to a patch of land in Hampstead Heath and was determined to see off property developers trying to get rid of him.

 

Music

We have a special performance this month by Keith James as he gives today’s music audience a chance to hear the music of Nick Drake played live. Drake, who sadly died at the age of 26, only garnered fame posthumously in the 1980s and all three of his albums have now been included on the Rolling Stones magazine’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All time.
