Coming Events:


BROCKWEIR EVENTS at the Mac Hall 2018

--------------------------------------------------------------

JIMMY ALDRIDGE and SID GOLDSMITH

Saturday 20th October, 7.30 for 8.00pm

jimmyandsidduo.com

 

 

Jimmy Aldridge & Sid Goldsmith are one of the finest duos to have emerged onto the British folk and acoustic scene in recent years. Their combination of outstanding vocal work, sensitive instrumentation, and a powerful social conscience has brought them widespread critical acclaim.

 

The songs themselves are always given centre stage but they are brought to life with stunning musical arrangements and vocals. There is an integrity that shines through their performances and a common thread of political struggle, resistance, and justice.

 

"To be a great folk singer, you have to be a great storyteller, as Jimmy Aldridge and Sid Goldsmith are clearly aware. The duo are both fine singers and multi-instrumentalists." (The Guardian).

INSTANT WIT

Friday 2nd November, 7.30 for 8.00pm

instantwit.co.uk

 

 

Welcome to a quick-fire comedy improvisation show, packed full of sketches, gags, songs, surreal situations and general silliness. Be prepared to receive flying packets of Instant Whip!

 

Completely improvised and directed by the audience the show is highly addictive, interactive, engaging and fun. Participate as much or as little as you like: shout out during the show or write down suggestions in the interval to win prizes.

 

This well-developed and successful format has an established and loyal following. For audiences aged 12+.

 

“These are conspicuously skilful performers-everyone is exhilarated-on stage and off!”(The Guardian). “This superlative comedy troupe continue to amaze packed houses with extraordinary skills… Instant Wit are a joy to behold, a dream topping of an evening!” (Venue Magazine Bristol).

MOSCOW DRUG CLUB

Friday 23rd November, 7.30 for 8.00pm

moscowdrugclub.com

 

 

Moscow Drug Club is a curious place where certain elements of 1930s Berlin Cabaret, Hot Club de France, Nuevo Tango and Gypsy Campfire meet, have a few to drink and stagger arm in arm into the darkness of some eastern European cobbled street on a mission to find a bar where Django Reinhardt and Tom Waits are having a jam with the local Tziganes.

 

Combining their original material with songs by the likes of Jacques Brel, Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits and Bertholt Brecht, Moscow Drug Club provide an intoxicating and intimate musical experience.

 

You are cordially invited to share a wry smile with us as you enter the darkly comic world of Moscow Drug Club…this way please and mind the stairs!
