Welcome to the Mackenzie Hall Brockweir

Coming Events:








Saturday 17th February, 7.30 for 8.00

Written and performed by Alison Neil




This short play is the life story of Edith Nesbit, best known as the author of The Railway Children and many other childrens’ books. As part of the Bohemian set in London around the end of the 19th Century she was a founder of the Fabian Society, and friend of famous literary figures from George Bernard Shaw to Noel Coward. Come and meet her in award-winning Alison Neil’s fast-moving and entertaining account of her life, larks and enduring magic. After the interval there will be a Q&A session with Alison who has written and performed many one-woman shows about extraordinary women. Advance tickets £5 or £6 on the door




Friday 23rd February, 7.30 for 8.00




Drawing upon the British folk tradition’s natural backdrops whilst weaving in their own distinct and eclectic flavours, self-penned songs sit comfortably alongside traditional ballads to provide a hugely entertaining and varied evening of music and song.

Kathryn and Sean have long established themselves as one of the UK folk scene’s enduring partnerships. The couple’s intimacy and strength of passion- Kathryn’s voice and Sean’s musicianship- have won them many fans. Supported by Air in G.




Friday 9th March, 7.30 for 8.00




A welcome return for Carmina, the well-established international celtic folk/jazz fusion trio headed by Pippa Marland (vocals, pipes clarinet and saxophone) and Rob King (vocals, guitar, mandolin, bodhran, mandola) who have created a unique blend of traditional and self- penned songs with a distinctively celtic flavour that morph into free form jazz before bringing the listener back to earth. They are joined on this gig by Paul Bradley, virtuoso guitarist and vocalist. This will be a showcase for Pippa’s pure vocal style and the intricate musical support from Rob and Paul.




Friday 13th April, 7.30 for 8.00




Ninebarrow (Jon Whitley and Jay Labouchardiere) are a duo who are certainly attracting attention, as a host of nominations including the 2017 Horizon Award will testify. With an easy manner and beautifully balanced harmonies they produce music that is gentle of the ear and soothes the soul, even if the topics of their songs, inspired by the landscape and history of the British Isles, can explore the darker and sadder sides of human nature. Jon and Jay play keyboard, mandola, harmonium and ukulele. Supported by Air in G
