Seby Ntege & Band ‘Five Notes’ UK Tour with Biddulph Ukulele Group
Nov 17 @ 7:00 pm

Seby Ntege is an internationally recognised multi-instrumentalist, from eastern Uganda; Seby is a UK ambassador for Ugandan folk music, now based in London.

Seby’s globetrotting outlook and sense of adventure are clear in his exuberant live performance, supported by ‘the band’ – a truly inspirational line-up of musicians.

The band’s danceable sound is a musical marriage between Uganda, the UK and West Africa – ‘Ugandan afro/soul.’

Earlier in 2018, BBC Radio 3 selected a track from the debut album ‘Five Notes’ as BBC Introducing track of the week.

This year, Seby Ntege & Band will perform at WOMAD, Drum Camp UK and at The Bayimba Festival, Uganda and have just announced a UK tour funded by the Arts Council of England.

Performing with local performers Biddulph Ukulele Group…..

Custody (15)
Nov 20 @ 7:45 pm – 9:15 pm

Myriam has recently left her husband Antoine and is unwilling to allow her youngest son, Julien, to see a father she claims is violent. But when a judge rules otherwise, awarding joint custody, the boy becomes a pawn in a bitter parental conflict. As gripping and unbearably tense as anything you’re likely to see this year, Custody is carefully and sensitively directed by Xavier Legrand with terrific performances throughout, a powerful reminder of the horrors of the home.

Hayley Ferns, Domestic Violence Outreach Team Leader from Arch North Staffordshire will lead a discussion after the film about the issues raised.  A collection for the work of Arch will be held.
