Edie (12A)
Dec 11 @ 7:45 pm – 9:30 pm

British actress Sheila Hancock gives an authentic, career-best performance as Edith ‘Edie’ Muir, a gruff, bitter woman in her eighties. After the death of her controlling husband George, Edie’s determination to retain her independence strains an already fraught relationship with her daughter Nancy. Edie decides to fulfil a lifelong dream of climbing a Scottish mountain, employing Jonny to help train her. As the pair bicker, talk and have fun, they reveal more about their lives to each other against the sublime landscape of the Scottish Highlands. It’s a touching, tender portrait of late-life adventure and self-discovery.

An Inconvenient Sequel (PG)
Dec 12 @ 7:45 pm – 9:30 pm

Coming 10 years after the ground breaking film An Inconvenient Truth, this sequel addresses the progress made to tackle the problem of climate change and Al Gore’s global efforts to persuade governmental leaders to invest in renewable energy, culminating in the landmark signing of 2016’s Paris Climate Agreement. It also addresses the effort to counter spoiling tactics by the denial industry, achieved largely by Gore’s army of climate activists and the actions of countless individuals and organisations who just ignored governments to get on with implementing the renewable energy and other essential projects needed to address the problem.  Inspirational.

“In a summer movie landscape with Spider-Man, a simian army waging further battle for the planet and … a sexy Cold War-era superspy, it says something that one of the most compelling characters is Al Gore.”  The New York Times, 2017

UK 2017 98 min

There will be a Fairtrade stall in the bar before the start of the film.

The Dylan Project
Dec 13 @ 8:00 pm


Take four of Britain’s most talented folk-rock musicians and a unique singer, add the repertoire of a genius, and you’ve got the recipe for a dream band.

The musicians in question are PJ Wright (slide and electric guitars, pedal steel) Gerry Conway (drums and percussion) Phil Bond (keys) Dave Pegg (bass) and the singer is Steve Gibbons. As The Dylan Project, they present an exhilarating tribute to the work of arguably the greatest postwar songwriter in the English language.

The Dylan Project’s repertoire spans the whole of Dylan’s oeuvre – everything from Highway 61 to Mississippi – and new material is frequently brought into the setlist. Whether you are a diehard Dylan fan or just enjoy great songs performed with flair and brio, The Dylan Project will take your breath away. Go and see them or buy one of the albums – you won’t be disappointed.


£20  …….doors 8.00pm for 8.30pm.

Ferocious Dog 4 Piece Acoustic
Dec 21 @ 8:00 pm

Really pleased to get this band again……….

Off the back of a busy summer of festivals, sold-out shows and excursions into Europe, Ferocious Dog are hitting the road with a run of stripped back4-piece shows. Bringing deeply personal lyrics, infused with folk, rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations to the masses, Ken Bonsall, Dan Booth, Alex Smithand John Leonard will be whipping up a musical maelstrom in a slightly more personal setting than their recent sold-out shows or main-stage festival slots have allowed. It is certainly not a show to be missed!Ferocious Dog are the new noise on the block –and are surprising everyone with their rapid ascent. There is no way they’re following any hipster templates –fronted by a big burly man with a mohican who sings impassioned political songs of broken Britain whilst his bandseethes like a punky Levellers –they are the music business’s worst nightmare –a great band who are going to make it without anyone’s permission”. (John Robb, Louder Than War, Glastonbury, 5th July 2016).2016 was a defining year for Ferocious Dog. From playing Billy Bragg’s Left Field stage at Glastonbury in front of a massive crowd, to sharing the stage with The Levellers on their sold out European and UK tour in November and December and many sold out shows in-between. Ferocious Dog left the audienceunder no doubt that they had witnessed a band that has the talent and passion to go on to dominate the folk/punk music scene.“Without doubt Ferocious Dog are one of the best bands on the UK folk punk circuit as they brought Rock City to life with their stomping, energetic sound. Not only are they one of the most hardworking bands around, but as their fans will testify, they are also one of the most approachable”.Nottingham Post. Kevin Cooper

Limehouse Lizzy
Jan 17 @ 7:30 pm

Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide. The band have also added a tribute into their show to ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist (and world renowned solo artist) Gary Moore.
From various T.V. appearances to actually being recruited to record and tour by members of the original Thin Lizzy, Limehouse Lizzy enter their 21st year with their most explosive show and critically-acclaimed line-up yet.


A Hundred Different Words for Love
Jan 24 @ 7:30 pm

After the huge success here of last year’s “Team Viking”, James Rowland returns with this hilarious, heart-lifting story of romance, despair and friendship. This new show features live music, original songs (and unoriginal emotions) and is set to break hearts and put them back together across the country.

Looking back on a devastating breakup, master storyteller James Rowland shares his quest to survive in a way that every member of the audience can understand.  It has been said that the Eskimo language has some improbably large number of words for ‘snow’; how is it then that we struggle to find the right words to make sense of love?

Both hilarious and heart-lifting, this very personal story of romance, despair and friendship is told with great charm and wit, live music, original songs (and unoriginal emotions) and above all, heartfelt honesty.
