    Corn Exchange Newbury, Market Place, Newbury, Berks RG14 5BD. United Kingdom

    Carmen

    West Berkshire Villagers | Events | What’s On | Things to Do

    Carmen will always be free… she is a gypsy, a Romany, a traveler, an untamed spirit, captivating and elusive, yet earthy and fiercely alive.

    Jose Agudo draws upon his unique palette of Flamenco and contemporary dance to create this dramatic adaptation of Prosper Merimée’s classic novella. The company delivers a rich tapestry of human motives and emotions, unravelling the complex exchange between conformity and freedom; the tension unleashed by obsessive human behaviour, the desire for self-disclosure, and upholding the right to be free.

    Set to an original Flamenco infused score by Bernhard Schimpelsberger and an additional track by Kefaya, Carmen is a story about individuality, freedom, love and pleasure, and the belief that our journey of twists and turns we call life is always valuable.

    Please note that there will be a 1 seat gap left between each booking. Find out more about your visit to us in the autumn

    The Barn North Sydmonton House, North Sydmonton, Newbury, Hampshire RG20 4UL

    Willow Weaving – Frame Basket Workshop

    Whether you are keen to learn a new skill or rekindle an old one our waving course is for you. Join Erica, our expert tutor in the ancient art of willow weaving.  She says it is repetitive and so relaxing. People go away calmer and with a sense of achievement.

    A frame basket is perfect as a first foray into basket weaving, being both relaxing to produce and allowing for some creativity in the use of materials. As an open design, a frame basket has endless uses, perfect in a practical sense and for display. Erica will provide the willow, both with and without bark, along with other tried and tested hedgerow material which can be added for visual effect.

    During the day you will learn how to prepare and use the materials to make a frame. Emphasis will be on good technique and material choice to ensure a functional and attractive basket that will last a lifetime.

    All materials and equipment will be provided. If you have a favourite pair of secateurs please feel free to bring them but make sure they are clearly marked.

    The day will be punctuated with delicious refreshments provided by Honesty Bakers and Makers, including a lunch of freshly produced soup and breads.

    All abilities welcome. Maximum 8 people on a course.

  • Hockney and Hollywood

    Hockney and Hollywood

    10:00 -17:00
    22/10/2021
    Communications Road, Greenham Business Park, Greenham, RG19 6HN

    Hockney and Hollywood | The Base Greenham

    West Berkshire Villagers | Events | Things to Do | What’s On. The picture called Nude, 17th June 1984 was commissioned by his friend the Hollywood film director Nicolas Roeg to create an extraordinary life sized nude photographic study of Theresa Russell for the movie Insignificance, which starred his then wife, Theresa Russell, as Marilyn Monroe. It took Hockney four attempts with a Pentax camera to capture the images he wanted to create the stunning image. The collage shows both Theresa’s front and back as Hockney explores the use of lines and edges in his photography. The actress’s pose, together with the pink satin sheets, her blonde wig and licking of her lips is reminiscent of a centrefold pin up.

    Nicolas Roeg, best known for directing Don’t Look Now, The Man Who Fell to Earth and The Witches, documented Hockney at work on the piece, photographing the artist as he prepared the scene, the assistants as they applied make up and Hockney taking the posed shots. These photographs give a unique and intimate never before seen ‘behind the scenes’ look at Hockney that make up an integral part of the exhibition, as one artist observes another.

    Hockney and Hollywood is on loan from The Bowes Museum in Barnard Castle (thebowesmuseum.org.uk).

    20:00 -23:00
    23/10/2021
    Arlington Arts Mary Hare, Newbury RG14 3BQ

    Nerina | Arlington Arts

    West Berkshire Villagers | Events | What’s On | Things to Do.  Brit and Ivor Novello nominated singer-songwriter Pallot has always remained very much her own woman.

    Now six albums and numerous EPs into her career, she has announced a UK tour to celebrate the release of her seventh album, and to do what she does best – wow audiences with her flawless voice, musicianship and critically acclaimed song-craft.

    But who even is Nerina Pallot? Why should you even care? Is this not the fifty hundredth press release you have seen today about something in which you have no personal investment but are obliged to do something with in order to satisfy the rapacious hunger of the people for content, content and more content?

    Absolutely. Life is busy. Life is hell. Hell is other people. Other people at gigs, especially that ten foot tall knob who insists on standing in front of you and only you. You have better things to do. Hopefully those things involve videos of cats or booking a holiday to Lisbon. Everybody’s going to Lisbon these days and posting photos of pastel coloured townhouses and pastries on Insta like you’ve never seen a house or a tart before and you are well within your rights to feel like you’re missing out.

    Anyway, Nerina Pallot last had a hit in 2006 but amazingly she has managed to carve out a career as a cult artist with a loyal fanbase and has made six albums and countless EPs that get brilliant reviews but no radio and definitely no telly. She is about to release another album you’ve never heard of but enough people will want to exit their cosy homes around the country to see her live and need you to let them know about it, because she’s very good at the singing thing and is on occasion quite funny also.

    Row A may have a restricted view. To find out more please see our booking information.

    West Berkshire Villagers | Events | What’s On | Things to Do. A dustbin, a homeless lady and an extra-ordinary tale of courage

    In a makeshift cardboard home-made home

    Lives a kind old lady with a heart of gold.

    Rescuing creatures great and small,

    Dustbin Doris will amaze us all.

    It’s bin collection day and our two heroic waste collectors Max and Ola are racing to make up lost time. But what’s this? A dustbin that refuses to release its contents! What could be attached? It’s Doris, the dotty old lady who lives in the park. A struggle ensues as she clings onto her possessions.  But every bin has a silver liner. So, when the pair of refuse loaders realise that ‘one man’s trash is another woman’s treasure’, an amazing trove of wonderous tales recycle their way out of the rubbish.

    Rhubarb Theatre, known for their imaginative styles of storytelling, perform their latest bin-full of fantasy for all the family. Prepare for joy and sadness, laughter and tears & surprises around every corner. Dustbin Doris is waste-deep in theatrical play, puppetry, mask, dance, song and lots of laughter.

    Arlington Arts Mary Hare, Newbury RG14 3BQ

    Elles Bailey

    2019 has been a hell of a year for the super-smoky-voiced, hard-working, far-touring chanteuse Elles Bailey. On 8th March, she dropped her eagerly-anticipated second album ‘Road I Call Home’ to rave reviews, with the album charting in the Official UK Country Charts & Americana charts, gaining over 1.3 million streams since its release and reaching No.1 on the Amazon Blues Bestseller chart.

    Like its chart-topping predecessor, ‘Road I Call Home’ features co-writing contributions from high-calibre collaborators, including British hit-making legend and Ivor Novello Award winner Roger Cook, storied Memphis and Nashville giant Bobby Wood, as well as Dan Auerbach (of Akron, Ohio powerhouses The Black Keys) on the infectious  ‘Little Piece of Heaven’

    As a self-confessed ‘rolling stone’ – Elles genuinely does call ‘the road’ home. She’s continued her wide-ranging headline touring throughout the UK and Europe and was also special guest support for Grammy Award winner Mike Farris, Martin Harley, The Kris Barras Band and King King.

    2018/19 has also seen Elles Bailey move up the festival listings becoming a featured artist at key festivals including Black Deer, Swing Wesplaar, Ramblin’ Man Fair, & The GB R&B Festival. She also headed stateside for the International House Of Songs Summit in Arkansas and played Nashville’s Americana Fest.

    2020 sees Elles touring the UK in March, Germany in April and playing many more international stages including taking to the high seas for the Joe Bonamassa ‘Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea’ cruise alongside the man himself, Joe Bonamassa, King King, Samantha Fish,Walter Trout and many more.

    As well as being an international touring artist, playing sold out shows all over the world, Elles is a self confessed DIY artist and If ever there was a fine example of the Do It Yourself nature of the music business then Elles Bailey is it. From rather humble beginnings Elles has by dint of hard work and talent smashed through and past much bigger artists and bigger industry players – not least major record labels – by taking time and effort to really understand the brave new world that is today’s landscape, being brave, breaking rules, making a few mistakes (always part of the learning process) and just powering through obstacles and doing whatever it takes. Her work ethic, both on the road, at shows, and in front of her spreadsheets is nothing short of phenomenal.

    No surprise but 2020 is full of tour dates for Miss Bailey on he road that she really does call home. When she arrives near you, don’t think twice, get there.  A great evening and a long musical friendship will be waiting.

    Marc Bolan, with his band T.Rex, was one of the most flamboyant and charismatic stars of the original glam rock era. With Bolan’s special ingredient of Rock-a-Boogie songs, the band had a string of huge hits throughout the 1970s including Love to Boogie, Telegram Sam, Jeepster and 20th Century Boy.

    T.Rextasy have been performing around the world for over 25 years, a career that ironically out lives Marc’s very own T.Rex. The band is now accepted as the world’s only official live tribute band dedicated to Marc Bolan & T.Rex, and the only band endorsed and approved by Marc Bolan’s family, estate, original ex-members of T.Rex, and Bolan’s catalogue management. The band has been described by many as ‘beyond the boundaries of tribute’.

    Truly a rock’n’roll concert for all ages – If you would like to know exactly what a Marc Bolan concert was like in the 1970s, this show is for you.
