Quinque: Five Show Off at the Foxlowe

We are a group of five local artists living in South Cheshire/North Staffordshire. We formed in 2009, naming ourselves QuinQue, derived from the Latin word for five.

When we first began to create art as a group, we set group tasks and worked on the same subject matter, but over time, as we developed, we found our own pathways, each drawn towards different subject matter and different mediums.

Patricia started specialising in botanical drawings and became a member of the Royal Society of Botanical artists.

Maggie and Barbara became interested in various forms of printmaking but especially reduction linocutting and are founder members of Linocut Friends on Facebook. It now has over twenty two thousand members globally.

Jackie and Barbara have a passion for watercolour and continue to wrestle with this very difficult medium, experiencing great joy when work goes well.

Sue, Maggie and Jackie had chosen acrylic as a preferred medium until more recently when they became very interested in pursuing oils.

Through personal growth, our work has become quite varied, but our story as a group gives us a cohesion, a unity and a unique story. We have become increasingly aware of how personal art is, how tastes differ dramatically between individuals and we feel that, collectively, we can offer something of interest to everyone.

A beautifully polished ballet of chaos, costume and drama presenting lyrics that echoes the angst and vulnerability of growing up in 21st century Britain.” Northern Exposure. 2017 was a busy year for Hands Off Gretel in which the band played over 60 shows, performed at major festivals, including Download, Isle of Wight, Rebellion, Camden Rocks Festival and headlined Loud Women Festival in London. The band also played their first European dates on a six-day tour of Germany and did 5 headline Camden Rocks shows.Described as “One of the most exciting new bands” in the ‘Bands To Watch’ feature by the US giant Alternative Press, who premiered the band’s ‘My Size’ video and ‘the best Alternative Rock band to come out of the UK in years’ – Louder Than War. Tracks from the bands debut album in 2016 were played on Kerrang Radio, Team Rock Radio and BBC Introducing Sheffield. 2018 is an exciting new chapter for the band having just finished recording their second album at Monnow Valley Studio in Wales, which is planned for release later in the year.

Hightown Parade –
Flamboyant and musically diverse, Infectious melodies, stomping rhythms, and a vigorous dialogue between guitar and piano. Hotly tipped for big things in 2018 by both Planet Rock and Kerrang.

The Howling Tides –
Four-piece Rock band from Staffordshire, playing hard hitting original material. “That’s more like it! Tight musicianship and well-constructed songs.” – Paul Anthony, Planet Rock

Jeremy Hardy Live – 2018
Oct 12 @ 8:00 pm

Jeremy Hardy is in his 4th decade as a stand up this year. That’s a more dramatic way of saying he started 34 years ago and, without a lottery win, has another 34 years to go.

In 2014 the tenth series of Jeremy Hardy Speaks to the Nation was broadcast on Radio 4 and more recently his brand new series Jeremy Feels It. He is well-known for his appearances on The News Quiz and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue. Indeed Alan Bennet recently said ‘he likes him ..but he’s only on the radio’.

However, Jeremy isn’t only on the radio, his television credits include, Jack Dee’s Election Helpdesk (BBC2), QI (BBC1), Mock the Week (BBC2), Grumpy Old Men (BBC1), Back in the Day (BBC2) and Not Tonight, with John Sargent (BBC2).
He’s also been on the road all year round and has never stopped doing live shows since 1984. He’s continuing his tour this autumn.

“In an ideal world he would be famous, but an ideal world would leave him without his best material.” The Guardian.
“Hugely Enjoyable.” The News Hub.

Stephen James Smith – My Ireland Tour
Oct 26 @ 7:30 pm

Stephen James Smith is a Dublin poet and playwright central to the rise of the vibrant spoken word scene in Ireland today. To date, his poetry videos have amassed over 1 million views online.

In 2017 he was commissioned by St. Patrick’s Festival to write a new poem as a “celebratory narrative” of Ireland. The resultant piece ‘My Ireland’ is accompanied by a short film by Director Myles O’Reilly, arranged and mixed by Conor O’Brien (Villagers), with music by Colm Mac Con Iomaire, Loah, Saint Sister, Eithne Ní Chatháin (aka Inni-K) and Ye Vagabonds. It has been viewed over 300,000 times online and was screened at London Film Festival in Trafalgar Square on March 17th. The poem was in many ways a follow on from Smith’s previous poetry video Dublin You Are, which itself clocked up in excess of 250k views.

Stephen has performed at high profile events and festivals such as the Electric Picnic, Other Voices, the National Concert Hall, the Abbey Theatre (Noble Call) and Vicar Street (alongside Oscar winner Glen Hansard and Colm Mac Ionmaire); and further afield at the London Palladium, the Oscar Wilde Awards in LA, Glastonbury, George Town Literary Festival (ML) and other events in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Iowa, Montreal, Ottawa, Bangkok, Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Utrecht, Ljubljana and Warsaw. In 2012 he was invited to perform for the Irish Olympic team in London.

Stephen has been conducting poetry workshops in secondary schools around Ireland for a number of years and was recently announced as an Artist in Residence with Dunamaise Arts Centre and Laois Arts Office, where he will develop the first ever Laois Spoken Word Project for young people in the county. His poetry is included on the syllabus at Western Connecticut State University and his work has been translated into Irish, Spanish, Slovenian, Polish, Dutch and Italian.

Stephen’s debut collection, Fear Not, is published by Arlen House with a launch due in Spring 2018.
