Welcome to the Mackenzie Hall Brockweir

Coming Events:


BADS presents -

 

 

Friday 19th October, 7.00 for 7.30pm

 

BLITHE SPIRIT, written by Noel Coward and directed by Alison Macklin, marks Brockweir Amateur Dramatic Society's first venture away from their hilarious pantomimes.

 

Coward's wit was at its peak when he wrote this comedy of manners and the cast have thrown themselves into this seasonal production with ghosts, a séance and things that go bump in the night.

 

To research his next novel Charles hires Madame Arcati to conduct a séance, which has unexpected results. A ghost appears and all of a sudden Charles has two wives with which to contend, his present wife Ruth and a ghostly Elvira, his former wife, neither of whom are happy with their present circumstances. Hilarity ensues in this classic comedy.

 

Tickets are £8.00 and are available at the The Brockweir and Hewelsfield Village Shop or can be reserved by emailing alisoninbrockweir@yahoo.co.uk or calling 01291 689995. Tickets are also available at the door.

Profits will be going to SARA (Severnside Area Rescue Association)

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).

BORJGHALI GEORGIAN CHOIR AND FEAST

Saturday 10th November, 7.00 for 7.30pm

 

 

Friday 19th October, 7.00 for 7.30pm

 

An evening of music, feasting, good company, heart stirring songs and sacred chants from the Republic of Georgia, with ‘Borjghali’ Georgian choir (pronounced “borch-kha-lee”).

 

This will be the sixth year the choir has visited Brockweir and the evening has become a bit of an annual pre-Christmas tradition. The evening will open with a short concert, followed by a meal in the style of a Georgian feast or ‘Supra’. Tickets will include your meal and entertainment, please bring your own wine.

 

The ‘Tamada’ or toastmaster will be the choir’s director Anthony Johnston who has visited the country on many occasions and who has been inspired by this ritual meal that, for the evening at least, will connect us with another time, culture and another part of the world.

 Adults - £22, Concessions - £18, Under 14 - £4, Under 8 - free

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!

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

Advance tickets are £10 and will be available from the Brockweir and Hewelsfield Village shop about 4 weeks before each event or from Adrian Birch, brockweirevent@gmail.com, 01291 689812.

£12 on the door. Refreshments available but BYO alcohol.
