  • ‘The Rest of Our Lives’ - Saturday 13th November 7.30pm - SOLD OUT

    The Rest of Our Lives

    THIS SHOW IS NOW SOLD OUT!

    Jo Wong and George Orange present a night of dance, circus and games. 

    In this cabaret of life and near death and armed with a soundtrack of floor-fillers, a book of raffle tickets and a sprinkling of eco-friendly glitter, Jo and George negotiate middle-life together with humour, tenderness and outlandish optimism.

    It's very funny. Life affirming with great dance tunes and... table tennis.

  • ‘Aufwiedersehen, Me Duck!’ Saturday 4th December 7.30pm

    Aufwiedersehen Me Duck

    Paul Walker and Karen Pfeiffer are an Anglo-German husband and wife folk songwriter duo. 

    Their varied repertoire combines beautifully written original songs and a fine choice of folk favourites delivered with marvellous, melodic vocal harmonies, skilful guitar accompaniment, the subtle use of flute and recorder, a charming onstage chemistry and commendable audience rapport.

    Their different cultural heritage is a substantial and entertaining part of their show, with amiable, self-deprecating banter playfully drawing on and celebrating both the German and Brit stereotypes.

  • ‘Dudley - The Jazz of Dudley Moore’ - Saturday 12th February 7.30pm

    Dudley - The Jazz of Dudley Moore

    Well known as a beloved comic actor perhaps fewer know about Dudley Moore, pianist and composer - appearing in late night sessions at Peter Cook's Establishment Club in 1960s Soho, on TV appearances, on recordings, and with big bands.

    'I can't imagine not having music in my life, playing for myself or for other people. If I was asked, 'Which would you give up?', I'd have to say acting.' Dudley Moore

    In this vibrant, sophisticated and moving homage, the Chris Ingham Trio honour this prematurely lost and sadly missed jazz hero with delightful music, spiced with gentle anecdote and insight, this is an evening of intimate and heartfelt pleasure.

    Some pieces are quintessential expressions of the bright, optimistic, swinging 60s, others are deeply poignant, personal expressions of a darker, more complex world. Sometimes there is a unique and bittersweet mix of the two.

  • ‘Ma Bessies Prohibition Party’ - Saturday 19th March 7.30pm

    Ma Bessies Prohibition Party

    Take a trip back to Prohibition-era America with Ma Bessie & The Pigfoot Band. This show is an incredible time capsule and brings the very best of 20s/30s blues and jazz to the present day, focusing on the life and musical canon of the late, great Empress of Blues herself, Bessie Smith. All bootleggers, gangsters and molls are most welcome.

    Led by Julia Titus and her impressive vocal range, the troupe offer a potted history of sorts, chronicling the life of Bessie Smith.

    As the performance is set around the prohibition era and beyond, every player in the group sounds and looks the part and audience members are more than welcome to join in by dressing up.

  • ‘Bonfire Radicals in Concert ’ - Saturday 30th April 7.30pm

    Bonfire Radicals

    'Quite staggeringly special. On this evidence, Bonfire Radicals are quite a discovery - grab the chance to go see them live.' Fatea Magazine

    Birmingham-based Bonfire Radicals have emerged from the folk/ world scene with a fresh musical approach and a host of engaging traditional and original material.

    Probably unlike anything you've heard before, they draw on many eclectic influences for their sound - a fusion of medieval melodies, jazz-tinged swing, folk-rock, klezmer and all points in between - and go from pyrotechnic folk-rock to delicate unaccompanied singing.

    Plentifully melodic and richly rhythmic, they weave together emotive vocals and free-ranging classical recorder, clarinet and fiddle over a pulsating rhythm mix of guitar, bass and drums.

    Known for their highly spirited stage presence, the Bonfire Radicals' own enthusiasm for their music is undeniable.

  • Call Australia! with Bush Gothic

    Bush Gothic

    In other news, despite the inability to have live events in recent months we did team up with the Live and Local organisation to involve the community in a long distance initiative!

    This was a ‘Living Room’ project which paired up some local groups and individuals, particularly the Junior School and the Day Care Centre, with Bush Gothic, an Australian folk band!

    The stories that were told, via phone calls, and shared about life in the community were turned into a song and CD.

    You can hear the amazing result here https://www.bushgothic.com/call-australia.html

Comealong! Monthly Music Session

Comealong! Monthly Music Session

Fri Dec 10 14:00:00 2021

Monthly Music Sessions: Comealong!

We are delighted to say that the music sessions that used to be held monthly, on the second Friday of every month, at the Wesleyan Chapel, Chapel Lane, Crich DE4 5BU have restarted. These sesions are organised jointly by the Wesleyan Chapel and Crich Area Dementia Friends. They are open to all.

With the restart, there is a new name. It has been decided to call the sessions “Comealong”. This reflects the inclusive nature of the sessions and also that, although, they are frequently, musical sessions, other fun activities can be included.

As always the sessions will start at 2.00pm and after the entertainment there will be a cup of tea, some cake and a chance for a chat.

So please “come along” and share this information with anyone you think might be interested.

Ladder World - new musical for children and adults

Sat Dec 11 19:00:00 2021

Ladderworld is a new musical for children and adults by JKB Productions, with 18 original songs and a live band.

It tells the story of the adventures of Jack after a Golden Ladder appears in the sky. The rungs slide down to touch the grass and he feels compelled to climb it. At the top he finds himself in Ladderworld where he meets Santa Claus, Mrs Santa and Jill, who has also climbed the Golden Ladder. They find out that only children from Realworld can use the Magic which is needed to rescue Rudolf the Reindeer and Bushey the Chief Elf who invented the Magic Toy Machine. They have been kidnapped by the evil Goblins, led by Hobnoblin!

So, will they be able to use Magic? Will they rescue Rudolf and Bushey? Will they get the Magic Toy Machine back in time for Christmas Eve? Will children on Realworld get their toys at Christmas?

Come along and enjoy Jack and Jill’s adventure; be prepared to laugh and sing and leave feeling uplifted by the story and its music!
