The first major female star of the 80’s, award winning singer-songwriter Hazel O’Connor rose to fame in 1980 starring in the film Breaking Glass. There were hits and eye-catching Top of The Pops appearances aplenty along the way. 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. Accompanied here by virtuoso saxophonist Clare Hirst (The Belle Stars, Communards, David Bowie) on sax and vocals and Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics) on keyboards and vocals, this powerful blend of voices and musicianship brings a classy touch of energy, passion and fire to Hazel’s vibrant performance.

Music: Giuseppe Verdi, Director: Christof Loy, Conductor: Antonio Pappano Running time: 4 hours, 15 mins inc. 2 intervals, Sung in Italian with English Subtitles.
Leonora falls in love with Don Alvaro, but when her father forbids their marriage, a
fatal accident triggers a drama of obsession, vengeance and tragedy. Jonas Kaufmann and
Anna Netrebko star in Verdi’s epic La forza del destino (The Force of Destiny) an opera which demands the very best of singers for its powerful music and the fullest theatrical treatment for its story of bitter revenge pursued across miles and years.

Hugh Jackman leads an all-star cast in this bold and original musical filled with infectious show stopping performances that will bring you to your feet time and time again. Inspired by the story of P.T. Barnum (Jackman) and celebrating the birth of show business, the film follows the visionary who rose from nothing to create a mesmerising spectacle. It isn’t hard to see how the film’s feelgood factor can give audiences a much-needed sense of escape or respite…the film offers a genuine rush of spectacle and wonder, which still counts for something on a big screen, perhaps more so in an era of standardised CGI. To quote the film, “it’s fire, it’s freedom, it’s flooding open”. Feel free to dress-up and the Fisher will offer some fitting food and drink.
Directed By: Wash Westmoreland, Starring: Keira Knightley, Dominic West & Denise Gough, Run time: 111 minutes

Spend a Saturday night paying homage to the much loved and remembered band, including tracks from all Fleetwood Mac’s greatest albums, from ‘Rumours’ and ‘Mirage’ to ‘Tusk’ and ‘Tango in the Night’.
Fleetwood Mac’s formula can be summed up as soft rock with an edge, the slight spaciness to their musical texture and the never replicated song-writing source that comes from having had three talented singer-songwriters in the same band, and you’ve got the recipe for multi-platinum success and some of pops most enduring classics. Accompanied by video projections and lighting, Songbird plays tribute to one of music’s all-time greats. Sing and dance along to tracks such as ‘The Chain’, ‘Dreams’ and ‘Go your own Way’ with this charismatic and musical band.
BlacKkKlansman is based on the extraordinary but true story of Ron Stallworth, the first African-American to serve as a detective in the Colorado Police Department. In the early 70s, Stallworth undertook an implausible mission: to infiltrate and expose the Klu Klux Klan. BlacKkKlansman blends comic irony and brutal fact, but still works very effectively as a crime drama. It’s funny, fast-paced and never loses its dramatic tension.
A double-bill comprising a cocktail of the best of British Comedy sketches and The Real Inspector Hound by Tom Stoppard for a night at the theatre that will make you chuckle, guffaw, and belly laugh uncontrollably. Hound is Stoppard’s comment on theatre critics and boy does he have it in for them.

Above all, the music includes several of popular opera’s most recognizable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus.

A musical play about East Anglia’s very own Dick Turpin
Little is known of Thomas Easter except that he was born in Aylsham in Norfolk in 1715 and was hung at Tyburn 24 years later. However, his life was packed with adventure and intrigue. From North Norfolk to Putney Heath Easter plied his trade as a Gentleman of the Road, ‘raising contributions upon the public’ and, from the little that is known, he was a dashing and charming rogue. ’I rob the rich to give to the poor’. Ultimately betrayed by an accomplice and comrade, he danced the hangman’s jig.
