Cable Street Collective

London-based seven-piece Cable Street Collective have spent the last year writing and recording new material whilst they get ready for festival season to return. Recent releases showcase the direction of the new album. Their first new release, Speaking in Tongues, features friend of the band Gregg Kofi Brown, of the legendary Afro-rock group Osibisa.

In 2019, building on the critical hype and radio play (on the likes of BBC Radio 6 Music, Radio X and Amazing Radio, among others) generated by their second EP, they toured extensively - playing at Glastonbury, and Shambala as well as a whole host of smaller festivals and venues up and down the country.

Cable Street Collective initially broke through onto the festival circuit with the release of their first EP, The Best of Times, in 2014, and have since built up a stellar reputation as a live band. Their latest recordings are songs that have been road-tested extensively, with back-to-back summers tearing up the likes of Boomtown, Bestival, Secret Garden Party, The Isle of Wight Festival, and the Lake of Stars Festival (Malawi), as well as those mentioned above.

Their sound mixes African-influenced guitars and beats with soulful female vocals, socially conscious lyrics and western melodies, creating an idiosyncratic alt-pop sound that’s all their own. Their sets are guaranteed to get everyone to their feet

“Their music grooves like a bastard.” – Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music & BBC Introducing)

"Such a great live band." – John Kennedy (RadioX Xposure)

“They were absolutely fantastic, bringing the entire audience roaring to its feet.” Telegraph

The first major female star of the 80’s, award-winning singer-songwriter Hazel O’Connor rose to fame exactly forty years ago in 1980 starring in the film 'Breaking Glass'.

Hazel's ageless songs include 'Eighth Day', 'Will You', 'Big Brother', 'Monsters in Disguise', 'Calls The Tune', 'If Only', 'Give Me An Inch', 'Blackman' and 'Hanging Around' - all of which seem even more relevant in our present times.

Celebrating the Hallelujah Moments of a stunning and illustrious live career Hazel is accompanied here by virtuoso saxophonist Clare Hirst (The Belle Stars, Communards, David Bowie), Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics)  keyboards and Tony Qunta (Odyssey/Edgar Winter) on guitar. This powerful blend of voices and musicianship brings a classy touch of energy, passion and fire to Hazel’s vibrant performance. With a special meet and greet immediately after the show you're in for a treat.

Jim Causley: Songs of Devon

A proud Devonian, Jim Causley has dedicated much of his career to researching and reviving the forgotten gems of songs from his native western peninsula.

Drawing from the collections of Victorian folksong collectors such as Sabine Baring-Gould and Cecil Sharp as well as more modern collectors and writers including Cyril Tawney and Tony Rose, living singers as well as a few of his own self-penned hits, Jim presents an evening jam-packed with Devonshire delights that richly bring to life the distinct flavour of music-making from this unique corner of the British Isles.

From Arscott of Tetcott to Widecombe Fair and everything in between, this show is a thoroughly enjoyable introduction to Devon’s rich musical culture.

More than simply a folk-singer, multi award winning singer-songwriter and musician Jim Causley is an all-round entertainer and during the past decade Causley has been nominated no less than six times for a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award.

He won the Spiral Earth Singer of the Year award in 2014 and presented his own folk music show on BBC Radio Devon. In 2015 he worked with BBC TV historian Dr Sam Willis to create the music for his show 'Highwaymen, Outlaws and Villains' and was asked to perform his song about Dartmoor tin mining 'Pride of the Moor' on BBC TV's Countryfile - Dartmoor Special. 2017 was the centenary of Jim’s relative; the celebrated Cornish poet Charles Causley and a biographical film about the poet aired on BBC4 TV. The soundtrack was composed entirely by Jim and featured music from his 2013 album ‘Cyprus Well’ of musical settings of Charles’ work.

One of the most well-loved and respected figures of today’s contemporary roots and folk scene who has played, toured and recorded alongside Waterson:Carthy, John McCusker, Eddie Reader, Graham Coxson, Shirley Collins, Michael Morpurgo, Show of Hands, Kate Rusby, David Rotheray of Beautiful South fame and many more.

"Screenwriter Alice Birch (Normal People, Lady Macbeth) and director Eva Husson (Bang Gang, Girls of the Sun) prove the perfect creative duo bringing rich sensuality to this film starting Olivia Colman, Josh O’Connor and Colin Firth.

Henley, in the mid-1920s, young maid Jane (Young) works for the Nivens, one of several local ‘grand’ families who have been devastated by the loss of sons in the First World War. Jane is having a secret, passionate affair with Paul (Josh O’Connor), the sole surviving son of the Nivens’ neighbours, and on Mothering Sunday, Jane has plans to bicycle over to Paul’s house while his parents and servants are away, for a secret rendezvous. But Paul is engaged to be married to someone else and Jane has ambitions to be a writer.

Eva Husson and director of photography Jamie Ramsay bring a vibrant physicality to this period setting, creating a substantial tenderness and sense of place."

The Book of Dust - La Belle Sauvage

By Philip Pullman, adapted by Bryony Lavery. Directed by Nicholas Hytner.

Set twelve years before the epic His Dark Materials trilogy, this gripping adaptation revisits Philip Pullman's fantastical world in which waters are rising and storms are brewing.

Two young people and their dæmons, with everything at stake, find themselves at the centre of a terrifying manhunt. In their care is a tiny child called Lyra Belacqua, and in that child lies the fate of the future. And as the waters rise around them, powerful adversaries conspire for mastery of Dust: salvation to some, the source of infinite corruption to others.

Eighteen years after his ground breaking production of His Dark Materials at the National Theatre, director Nicholas Hytner returns to Pullman's parallel universe. Broadcast live from London's Bridge Theatre.

Nostalgic Cinema: White Christmas.

Directed by Michael Curtiz

Starring Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney, Vera-Ellen

Music composed by Irving Berlin

Duration 119 mins.

Having left the Army following W.W.II, Bob Wallace (Bing Crosby) and Phil Davis (Danny Kaye) team up to become a top song-and-dance act. Davis plays matchmaker and introduces Wallace to a pair of beautiful sisters (Betty and Judy - played by Rosemary Clooney & Vera-Ellen) who also have a song-and-dance act. When Betty and Judy travel to a Vermont lodge to perform a Christmas show, Wallace and Davis follow, only to find their former commander, General Waverly, as the lodge owner. A series of romantic mix-ups ensue as the performers try to help the General. The first movie to be filmed in VistaVision!

'White Christmas is the cinema equivalent of an inappropriate festive snog under the mistletoe – you know you probably shouldn't enjoy it but you just can't help yourself.' -The Times

Dementia Friendly Cinemas have proven to be very therapeutic for people with memory problems and their families. Besides engaging the brain and stimulating emotions, being part of an audience enjoying a film helps people with dementia and their carers to feel less isolated and also challenges the stigma associated with the condition.

All Nostalgic Cinema performances have subtitles to assist full enjoyment of the film by any members of the audience who are hard of hearing.

Whilst promoted as a dementia friendly screening, we hope anyone who loves the old films will come along for an afternoon of fond memories.

Elena Stikina, Bryan Hymel and Alexey Markov bring to life one of the best loved operas in The Royal Opera repertory: Puccini’s Tosca. From the demonic chords with which it famously begins to the violent twist of the opera’s shock ending, the tension never lets up for a moment. Love and evil come – thrillingly – face to face in Jonathan Kent’s intense production.

Snow Angel Cabaret

From the ashes rises a Phoenix…or at the very least a couple of birds with tremendous style.

A shamelessly festive show celebrating all that is Christmassy.  From Michael Bublé and Tiny Tim to Frozen mashups and the return of the small and ever-popular Eskimo. Mad-capped, joyous and at times preposterous, this is an evening of festive frivolity with a tiny sparkle of magic that will delight the unhinged and charm the pants of everyone else.

Charlie Bicknell became a household name playing 'Delilah' in BBC2's This Life and subsequently starred as 'Scout' in Ben Elton's West End hit Popcorn. Continuing to work as an actress for the National Theatre and rep around the UK, Charlie then moved into cabaret and circus, performing all over the world.

Louise Innes is a versatile operatic mezzo soprano, who has sung at Covent Garden Opera House, Scottish Opera, La Scala, Festival Hall, and 10 Downing Street to name but a few.  She has recently been performing with Charlie in Londons’ Crazy Coq, Chelsea Arts Club, St James Theatre and all over the South West.

Songwriters

Songwriters

Having appeared here at the Beehive twice before in the sell-out Simon & Garfunkel - Through the Years show, we are delighted to welcome Dan back in a solo show celebrating great songwriters.

Whether it’s in a cosy folk club still lost in the sixties, or a modern-day arena pulsing with energy, a great song never fails to capture and transport an audience. Yet whilst some artists merely manage the magic a handful of times, there are others who strike gold time and time again.  

In this long-awaited, debut show Songwriters, Dan Haynes pays tribute to a host of song-writer legends that have managed the magic time and time again. From the epic George Harrison, Paul Simon and Don Mclean to the contemporary icons Ben Howard, Laura Marling and Bon Iver, Dan recreates and reimagines hit songs in this stunning concert. It is a must-see for all lovers of acoustic music.

Interwoven with his original music, this ‘’acoustic guitar masterclass’’ (Media Luchs, Germany) received five-star reviews at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2019.

  • 1h 51min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Pablo Larraín
  • Cast: Kristen Stewart, Timothy Spall, Jack Farthing, Sean Harris, Sally Hawkins

Pablo Larraín’s sublime ‘fable from a true story’ imagines a Christmas weekend at Sandringham in the early 1990s, as an unhappy Princess Diana contemplates saying ‘no’.

As played with intoxicating perfection by Kristen Stewart, who dominates almost every scene of Spencer, Diana is dying on the vine, showing only flashes of her former effervescence. Hers is the world’s most scrutinised persona since she began living the fairy-tale life of a girl who grew up to marry a prince; in reality, her husband rather publicly loves someone else. She’s also suffocating under the expectations of total subservience to Royal protocol. Working from a beautiful script by Steven Knight, Larraín (Jackie) ingeniously depicts a world in which every polished spoon and heavy curtain, every steely stare from staff, even a seemingly ‘jolly’ Christmas tradition, expresses Her Majesty’s disapproval of the young princess. The exquisite craft of Spencer makes you want to freeze every moment. director of photography Claire Mathon (Portrait of a Lady on Fire) shoots in 4:3 ratio with a micro-universe of colour emerging from the muted environments designed by Guy Hendrix Dyas. And Jonny Greenwood illuminates Diana’s internal tussle with solo piano and strings. It’s oppressive, until it isn’t anymore. Stewart and Larraín deliver a finale that will break your heart and make it skip all at once.
