Finding Joy

The funny and fearless sell-out mask production from the UK’s leading full mask company. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll find joy!

Joy is 83 today: she’s feisty, loves to dance, and is losing her memory. Her grandson Danny is rebellious, bright and always getting into trouble. When Danny decides to look after Joy, they discover a shared playfulness and growing love. But is that enough to face the challenges ahead?

Approaching the subject of dementia with humour and humanity, award-winning Finding Joy has performed to audiences across Europe and the UK, including a successful
run at Assembly for Edinburgh Fringe 2016. Praised by press and public alike for its consummate full mask skills, engaging storytelling, physical dexterity and emotional insight, the company continues to involve and engage audiences across borders and boundaries with its wordless theatre.

Suitable for 12 years and upwards, Finding Joy is accessible to hearing and d/Deaf audiences alike. It is supported by Arts Council England and Worcestershire County Council, and was developed in association with The Hereford Courtyard, with inspiration from movement-play specialists JABADAO.

This event will be held in Oscars. Tickets: £14.50

Wurlitza - 'A Cottage on Dartmoor'

wesite-poster.jpg

Wurlitza are a five part band specialising in adding live soundtracks to the best silent movies of the late 1920s.

Wurlitza's wide ranging repertoire includes original, pop, contemporary, classical, jazz and klezmer music. Expect the unexpected! Wurlitza add a modern twist to silent film accompaniment by adding music that will be familiar, but arranged in a way that is novel and fresh. The soundtrack to A Cottage in Dartmoor includes classical pieces by Mozart, Chopin and Villa Lobos, alongside jazz and pop songs from Serge Gainsbourgh, Blondie, Buddy Holly and Coldplay.

Wurlitza have performed their unique live silent film soundtracks to critical acclaim throughout the South West and beyond, wowing audiences at Glastonbury Festival in 2016 and Blackpool Film Festival in 2017.

A Cottage on Dartmoor is a thriller of love, jealousy and hairdressing. Made in 1929 by the young Anthony Asquith, this film explores the latest craze to have been hitting the cinemas; the talkies. One of the last silent films to be made, this is early British cinema at its best.

“I loved Wurlitza’s Pop to Classical mix.” – Baudade, The Guardian.

This event is held in Oscars and spaces are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Ventoux

7:30 PM19:30

Ventoux

Ventoux is a restaging of the dramatic battle between Lance Armstrong and Marco Pantani in the Tour de France 2000 on Mont Ventoux.  Once regarded as the greatest race in the history of cycling, we now know that both Armstrong and Pantani doped during their careers. At the time both were champions in their own right - Pantani winning the Tour de France in 1998, and Armstrong winning in 1999.

VENTOUX-web.jpg

In 2000 they went head to head on Mont Ventoux. They crossed the line together but their careers spiralled in wildly opposite directions. Armstrong won seven consecutive Tour de France titles; Pantani died of a cocaine overdose alone in a hotel room. Armstrong denied, lied and cheated where Pantani was caught. 

Ventoux restages this race, knowing everything that we now know in 2015. 

With a pair of road bikes, stunning footage of Mont Ventoux and actual race commentary, 2Magpies bring the excitement of the Tour de France to the theatre.

A Spanish Hour by Mid Wales Opera

web-spanish-hour-poster.jpg

Autumn 2018 sees MWO back on the road with the company’s second SmallStages tour, Ravel’s exhilarating one-act bedroom farce, A Spanish Hour (L’heure espagnole). We’re returning to some favourite spots from our tour of Walton’s The Bear in 2017, as well as a host of new places we’re longing to explore.  

First performed in Paris in 1911, L’heure espagnole is set in a clock shop in Toledo, central Spain. It follows the fortunes of Torquemada, the hardworking clockmaker, as, during the course of one hot afternoon, his young wife Concepción negotiates her way through her collection of ridiculous lovers. Ravel’s music is bursting with hummable melodies, lively habanera dances and other Spanish folk song elements to get audiences buzzing. 

This is opera for everyone - featuring an outstanding cast of five young singers as well as four brilliant musicians, performing a new English translation by our Artistic Director Richard Studer and a new arrangement of Ravel’s exotic score created by our Music Director Jonathan Lyness.

This live event is held at St.Laurence's Church and has reserved seating.

Limehouse Lizzy

web-PromoPic2015.jpg

Limehouse Lizzy continue to keep the spirit of Celtic rock icon Philip Lynott and his band Thin Lizzy alive, well and dominating stages worldwide. The band have also added a tribute into their show to ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist (and world renowned solo artist) Gary Moore.
 
From their Official PRS award, performing for Virgin Atlantic in Barbados, T.V. appearances (BBC 2’s ‘Arena’ amongst others), and to actually being recruited to record and tour by members of the original Thin Lizzy, Limehouse Lizzy enter their 25th year with their most explosive show and critically-acclaimed line-up yet.
 
Despite international tours (UAE, Germany and previously USA, Scandinavia, Caribbean etc.), corporate clients (Mitsubishi, NatWest) and even book appearances (The Rocker, Send In The Clones), they’ve shoehorned a co-headline tour with tribute giants Livewire into 2018, along with their own stand-alone tour, in what will be an exhausting year-long schedule. The boys are back!

This event is standing only in Oscars.

LISTENING WITH YOUR EYES WORKSHOP by VAMOS THEATRE

Guiding-hand-LWYE-workshop-Mask-Theatre-GP.jpg

About the workshop
Listening with your Eyes helps develop skills of empathy, insight, listening and trust-building, particularly in the arena of Health and Care.

Suitable for all experiences, Listening with your Eyes explores practically the many ways in which we make connections, with the emphasis on the non-verbal. It looks at the impact of body language, mood, eye-contact, touch, and gesture, and shows how tone of voice can change the meaning of the words we say. The workshop offers an opportunity for participants to see the powerful effect of non-verbal techniques, and their benefit in helping us make real and honest connections – particularly with those living with dementia.

The workshop is led in a supportive and playful way. Our aim is for everyone to learn through their own discovery; to feel for themselves, to see with their own eyes and so to empathise with others more easily.

Who is it for?
Listening with your Eyes has proved invaluable to a wide range of professions for whom connection with the public is central, in particular those working in the Health and Care sector: past participants include care home staff, GPs, nurses, police, family support workers, bereavement counsellors, occupational therapists, CAB advisors, teachers, receptionists and transport drivers.

Benefits and learning outcomes
As England develops Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) across Health and Social Care, person-centred care is a uniting thread amongst the sectors. Listening with your Eyes enables individuals and organisations to develop sustainable habits of person-centred care through experience, education, engagement and entertainment. It offers a range of tools and techniques not ordinarily gained in short workshops that support the implementation of good practice in person-centred care, providing practical and effective training tools to develop caring habits and increase wisdom.

•  Teaches empathy, deep listening, insight, and trust, which feed into the Compassion in Practice 6Cs - care, compassion, courage, communication, commitment and competence.
•  Encourages positive communication without words that is physical, honest, clear and caring.
•  Teaches confidence in reaching and connecting with people living with dementia~
•  Enables the development of sustainable, good practice habits of person-centred care
•  Shares ways of creating a calm and caring atmosphere in the workplace
•  Links with Care of Older Adults Section 3.05 of the RCGP Curriculum Module, and the MRCGP syllabus for trainee GPs.
•  Encourages a caring culture and increasing the person-centred capacity of an organisation

This workshop is £25 and held in Oscars

Local History Lectures and Walks with Alfred Jenkins MBE

Alf-Jenkins-2_web.jpg

Walks and Talks - Alf Jenkins MBE is a Shropshire ‘Lad’, born on the Titterstone Clee Hills in the 1930s. His home was Dhu Stone Inn situated near and built for miners, railway and stone quarry workers. His father was an undertaker, wheelwright, smallholder and publican. The area was a remote, hive of industry with its own brand of farming and dialect. 

At the age of eleven Alf travelled the great distance of five miles each day to the foreign land of Ludlow and its Grammar School. Army life, teacher training and work in Birmingham followed before he returned to Ludlow to teach in the 1960s. Those interim years saw Clee Hill dialect diluted, two quarries close and the Dhu Stone incline became obsolete. There was a population influx and considerable commuting to work. Clee Hill life changed beyond all recognition, giving much urgency for Alf’s books and DVDs to be produced. What was written for local people has, due to detail of dialect, industrial history, crafts, stone quarrying, rural life, quarry railways and coalmining acquired not only national but international appeal.

Enjoy a little nostalgia from his lectures and tours at the Ludlow Fringe Festival about this unique area and encapsulate Alf’s infectious enthusiasm for the area. 

19 June 2018 - Lecture 1 – DVD Presentation “A stroll around the Clee Hills’. With discussion on the industrial and social history of Clee Hill. 

26 June 2018 - Lecture 2 – The Development of Clee Hill’s unique Dialect. A conversation by Ann and Alf Jenkins with a fun quiz to end. 

30 June & 2 July 2018 - Walking Tours of Clee Hill’s Industrial and Social History Sites – 10am meet in Victoria Car Park at Clee Hill village – on the A4117 for a leisurely stroll around the hill. Warm weatherproof clothing, packed lunch and strong shoes needed).

Makin’ Tracks Tour 2018

The '60s group Manfred Mann is now considered, more than ever, one of the finest and most respected bands from that era. Their numerous hits were R&B based with an undercurrent of jazz - a very unusual but winning combination of playing style and substance. 

As a result, their records have a timeless quality and, some 55 years on, The Manfreds, with original front man, Paul Jones, will be performing many of their hits, including ‘Do Wah Diddy Diddy’, one of the most popular and instantly recognisable songs of the ‘60’s, and still the biggest audience pleaser at their concerts, along with a mix of Jazz and Blues covers from their new album ‘Makin’ Tracks’

Paul Jones, with his unique harmonica sound, will be joined by Mike Hugg on keyboards, Tom McGuinness on guitar, Rob Townsend on drums, Marcus Cliffe on bass, and Simon Currie on saxophone/ flute. 

Kindly sponsored by South Shropshire Roofing

This event will be held in the Main Auditorium. We have dedicated wheelchair spaces in the stalls.  If you require a wheelchair space, please call box office on 01584 878 141

Tickets: £25

Local History Lectures and Walks with Alfred Jenkins MBE

Alf-Jenkins-2_web.jpg

Walks and Talks - Alf Jenkins MBE is a Shropshire ‘Lad’, born on the Titterstone Clee Hills in the 1930s. His home was Dhu Stone Inn situated near and built for miners, railway and stone quarry workers. His father was an undertaker, wheelwright, smallholder and publican. The area was a remote, hive of industry with its own brand of farming and dialect. 

At the age of eleven Alf travelled the great distance of five miles each day to the foreign land of Ludlow and its Grammar School. Army life, teacher training and work in Birmingham followed before he returned to Ludlow to teach in the 1960s. Those interim years saw Clee Hill dialect diluted, two quarries close and the Dhu Stone incline became obsolete. There was a population influx and considerable commuting to work. Clee Hill life changed beyond all recognition, giving much urgency for Alf’s books and DVDs to be produced. What was written for local people has, due to detail of dialect, industrial history, crafts, stone quarrying, rural life, quarry railways and coalmining acquired not only national but international appeal.

Enjoy a little nostalgia from his lectures and tours at the Ludlow Fringe Festival about this unique area and encapsulate Alf’s infectious enthusiasm for the area. 

19 June 2018 - Lecture 1 – DVD Presentation “A stroll around the Clee Hills’. With discussion on the industrial and social history of Clee Hill. 

26 June 2018 - Lecture 2 – The Development of Clee Hill’s unique Dialect. A conversation by Ann and Alf Jenkins with a fun quiz to end. 

30 June & 2 July 2018 - Walking Tours of Clee Hill’s Industrial and Social History Sites – 10am meet in Victoria Car Park at Clee Hill village – on the A4117 for a leisurely stroll around the hill. Warm weatherproof clothing, packed lunch and strong shoes needed).

As You Like It - Shakespeare in the Castle - Here to There Productions

It's the Swinging 60’s and life at the court of the usurping Duke Frederick is lived on the edge - overflowing with tension, intrigue and brotherly hate.

As-You-LIke-It-(Ludlow-Castle)-low-res.jpg

Meanwhile in the Forest of Arden, peace and love reigns where the Duke’s exiled brother Duke Senior has taken refuge. The hippie lifestyle here is much slower and more gentle - until it is disturbed by runaways and four sets of lovers, including a cross dressing woman. Add a comedy duo and all the world’s a stage.
Come play your part at this open air production of Shakespeare’s comedy As You Like It in the beautiful setting of Ludlow Castle. 

Bring a blanket, chairs and maybe a picnic and join us for an evening of comedy, drama and live music.

This is an outdoor production – bring waterproofs! If it rains, the show must go on so please come prepared.

This event is held at Ludlow Castle.  Tickets are £15/£13 Concessions.
