Jim Diamond

Jim Diamond

Jim is best loved for his million selling hits "I Won’t Let You Down", "I Should Have Known Better", "Hi Ho Silver" and his beautifully haunting voice. Born in Glasgow’s East End, Jim came to the attention of the Godfather of British Blues, Alexis Korner, who invited him to work with him on his "Just Easy" album. Taken from his 1984 solo album "Double Crossed" the single "I Should Have Known Better" went straight to No.1 and went on to be nominated for an Ivor Novello award. The song’s success became synonymous with the Band Aid single released at the same time when Jim urged the public to buy the charity single and not his own.

The Pantaloons

Charles Dickens’ Bleak House

Join The Pantaloons Theatre Company for a fog-filled adventure in Victorian London. When a dead body is discovered in Mr Krook’s Rag-and-Bone shop, a web of mysteries starts to untangle, with far-reaching consequences. Hilarious, tragic and romantic by turns, Dickens’ darkly comic masterpiece is retold by The Pantaloons in their own inimitable style. A company of five actor-musicians bring the novel’s cast of over 50 characters to life in a thrilling tale of love, skulduggery and spontaneous combustion...

The Oh What A Lovely War exhibition of local artefacts and memorabilia will be a backdrop to the performances which will shed light on life in our farms, villages and parishes 100 years ago through the greatest conflict the world had ever known. Also featuring performances by the Devon Teachers Rock Choir and Chulmleigh Belles.

An Afternoon of Village Dances from The Balkans & Beyond

with Balamouk

Can you count to four?  Do you know your left foot from your right foot?  If both answers are "Yes" (and even if not!) you can join in these clearly led dances.  And you don’t need a partner.  Now village dances really need to be danced to live music...not an easy task as few folk know the music.  But here in North Devon you’re lucky enough to have Balamouk with bouzouki, guitar, fiddle, santouri, clarinet, saz, whistles and drums, vocals ..........the list goes on! A gig to warm your feet, your hands and your heart on a cold November afternoon.  Don’t miss it!

Macbeth

Share Share this!

Traffic of the Stage present

Macbeth

by William Shakespeare

William Shakespeare's Macbeth is the original `Game of Thrones` - a disturbing tale of treachery and murder set in the savage landscape of medieval Scotland. With its compelling mixture of historical fact and supernatural invention, the play is an incisive psychological study on the corrosive effects of mad ambition. Harry Meacher plays the driven tyrant, and Judi Bowker is Lady Macbeth in Traffic of the Stage’s atmospheric production which focuses on the raw and earthy emotions of those living in dangerous times.

Comedy Night

Seann Walsh: 28

The Lie-in King is Back!

Seann Walsh has managed to search deep inside himself to find the inner strength to get out of bed and all the way into his support act’s car, parked just outside his flat JUST FOR YOU. In his last show ’The Lie-In King’, 2013 Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, Seann was living alone and trying to sort himself out. At 28 years of age he returns with his aptly named new show ’28’ where he is now living with his girlfriend, and she is trying to sort him out. Star of all the TV comedy shows, Seann is a charming and charismatic natural born observational storyteller, and one of the most frighteningly precocious talents to emerge from the UK comedy circuit in years.

Hockney: Live From L.A.

Hockney: Live From L.A.

An exclusive gala screening of the highly anticipated new feature HOCKNEY, followed by an in-depth conversation with David Hockney from his Los Angeles studio, broadcast live.

Hockney is the definitive exploration of one of the most significant artists of his generation. For the first time, David Hockney has given access to his personal archive of photographs and film, resulting in an unparalleled visual diary of a long life. The film chronicles Hockney’s vast career, from his early life in working-class Bradford, where his love for pictures was developed through his admiration for cinema, to his relocation to Hollywood where his life long struggle to escape labels (‘queer’, ‘working class’, figurative artist’) was fully realised. Paradoxically, this escape to live the American Dream did not break the ties to the childhood that formed him. We see his upbringing and life experiences give him the willpower to survive relationship problems, and later the AIDS epidemic, but also allow him to create some of the most renowned works of the past century. Acclaimed filmmaker Randall Wright offers a unique view of this unconventional artist who is now reaching new peaks of popularity worldwide, as charismatic as ever, and at seventy seven still working in the studio seven days a week.
