TALES OF BEATRIX POTTER – FILM/BALLET Thursday 23rd


August @ 7.30pm


Created by Frederick Ashton in 1971, Tales of Beatrix Potter brings alive, with rich characterisation and invention, the famous images and stories of Beatrix Potter. John Lanchbery’s music is utterly captivating, inspiring spirited playing from the Royal Ballet Sinfonia conducted by Paul Murphy. Christine Edzard’s designs conjure up a lost England of field mice and Berkshire black pigs, of foxgloves and shady groves. The entire cast delivers outstanding portrayals of such colourful figures as Jemima Puddle- Duck, Jeremy Fisher, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and the irrepressible Peter Rabbit in a ballet of charm and grace for all ages. Recorded at the Royal Opera House, London in 2007. Approximate running time excluding interval 72 minutes


KEL ELLIOT BAND – MUSIC Friday 24th


August @ 8pm


Kel is a double-bass playing jazz singer who takes her life experiences and views and hammers them out on stage with humour, irony and a touch of mischief. Stylistically, the sound is richly produced bluesy cafe-jazz and lyrically optimistic, Kel’s upbeat tales of life and lost love are light hearted and musically infectious. With her four piece band, Kel and the boys are currently touring their recently released studio album ‘Lies and Hoes’ throughout the UK and Europe. Through their love of performing and approachable ‘have a chat with the audience’ ethos they will be having fun!


A CURIOUS INCIDENT OF A DOG IN THE NIGHT TIME -


NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE Thursday 6th


Saturday 8th


September @ 7pm, Encore September @ 2.30pm &


Monday 10th September @ 7pm. Mark Haddon’s celebrated, multi- award-winning novel is beautifully and imaginatively adapted into a stage play for the first time. Christopher, fifteen years old, stands beside Mrs Shears’ dead dog, Wellington. It has been speared with a garden fork, it is seven minutes after midnight and Christopher is under suspicion. He records each fact in his book to solve the mystery. He has an extraordinary brain, exceptional at maths but ill-equipped to interpret everyday life. He has never ventured alone


beyond the end of his road, he detests being touched and he distrusts strangers. But his detective work, forbidden by his father, takes him on a frightening journey that upturns his world… Cast includes Matthew Barker, Niamh Cusack and Una Stubbs. Director Marianne Elliott


RIVER DART SCREENING – September @ 7.30pm


FILM/TALK Thursday 13th


Over a decade ago, poet Alice Oswald began recording conversations with the people who live on the river Dart. In her subsequent poem, ‘Dart’ (2002), these records formed the life-models for characters in a sound-map of the river, a songline from the source to the sea. The book-length poem went on to win the prestigious T. S. Eliot Prize and become a national favourite. Now, director Marc Tiley has made a film version of ‘Dart’. By combining the words of the poem with actual observations of real people. The film creates a rare and unforgettable portrait of a community, and follows the varying character of the river itself, from its mysterious source on high Dartmoor, to the sea at Dartmouth, and beyond.


After the screening Alice Oswald will read from the poem, and director, Marc Tiley, will discuss the project. Presented by The Flavel Cinema and AONB (South Devon).
