Tuesday 20th November 2018 - Market Day Matinee - THE BOOKSHOP at The Alexander Centre


2:30 pm    £3.60
England, 1959. Free-spirited widow Florence Green (Emily Mortimer) risks everything to open a bookshop in a conservative East Anglian coastal town.

While bringing about a surprising cultural awakening through works by Ray Bradbury and Vladimir Nabokov, she earns the polite but ruthless opposition of a local grand dame (Patricia Clarkson) and the support and affection of a reclusive book loving widower (Bill Nighy).

As Florence's obstacles amass and bear suspicious signs of a local power struggle, she is forced to ask: is there a place for a bookshop in a town that may not want one? Based on Penelope Fitzgerald's acclaimed novel and directed by Isabel Coixet (Learning to Drive), The Bookshop is an elegant yet incisive rendering of personal resolve, tested in the battle for the soul of a community.


Tickets available on the door or in advance from The Alexander Centre - call 01795 591691 or email bookings@thealexandercentre.com

Brilliance - a production by Farnham Maltings


2:30 pm     £7.50

1948 and 1963. Everyone is gathering in the village hall.
Lightning has struck the hall roof. Mrs Atkinson has called the repairman – a man who can fix a creaking door, chimneys that smoke. And in he comes with his daughter, bright blue eyes full of brilliance, like an animal in from the woods.

Long after its arrival in the city, the slow process of rural electrification is starting to illuminate every corner and crevice of village life. As the dark evenings hold us in, 240 volts of alternating current and the humble electric light bulb allow us to gather and sing long into the night.

Brillianceis a 90-minute theatrical event that celebrates progress and change in a brightnew world. It is at heart a love story.

Brilliance is, at heart, a lovestory combined with eclectic live music (5 musicians) made especially forvillage halls. A show that is bound tolight a spark from the inside out.

From the company that brought you It’s A Wonderful Life, The Iranian Feast andYørgjin Oxo, we now bring you Brilliancemade especially for village halls.

Suitablefor all the family 10yrs+

Getting the party started since 1992!

The band have a huge repertoire, and play a perfect balance of music to dance the night away. Everything from soul, pop, rock 'n' roll, rhythm 'n' blues, funk, disco, ska, plus a few slow romantic songs for good measure!
Rubber Biscuit has earned its reputation as one of the most professional wedding / function / party bands in Kent. It has an excellent working relationship with venues and wedding and event organisers.
Now in their 25th year of entertaining Kent audiences, these local legends are still doing what they have always done best: playing great music and, more importantly, giving audiences a great time.

Wednesday 28th November 2018 - LYNNE HERAUD & PAT TURNER - at Faversham Folk Club, The Limes

FAVERSHAM FOLK CLUB
Lynne Heraud & Pat Turner
7.30      Ticket Price £7 / £8

Individually, and in combination with a variety of well-known singers and bands, Lynne Heraud and Pat Turner have both served long apprenticeships on the shop-floor of folk music. 

Lynne sang in a duo with Sue Ashby; performed with John Lambert and Frank Lee as Tom, Dick and Harriet; and has made a CD, 'Stars in My Crown' with Keith Kendrick. She was, for many years, the organiser and MC for the Hoddesdon Folk Club.

Pat toured for six years with the folk band Filigree, making an album and also releasing a single! She was co-founder and MC of the City Folk Club in London.

Together they later joined Pete Cunningham (ex-English Tapestry and Heritage) to form Brandis, making several radio appearances. They finally settled into a permanent duo and made their first CD, 'Parallel', in 2003, and have since made three more on the Wildgoose label.

Between them they play guitar, recorder, English concertina and a variety of whistles (including swanee, policeman's and referee's), list a spoons workshop in their hall of fame, and are not in the least averse to dressing up or dancing when a song requires it. They both agree, however, that their voices are their most important instruments. Their resulting style is a unique blend of stunning song and harmony, and a humour which takes their audience on a roller-coaster ride - "everything from high tragedy to ingenious smut in glorious vocal harmony!"

In addition to appearing at folk clubs and festivals, Lynne and Pat also organise and perform themed shows and workshops, music hall evenings (awash with sauce and innuendo), and a special show called 'A Birds' Eye View', which presents songs particularly from a woman's perspective (but which men are invited to attend as well — and learn from!) Audiences need to be robust as their humour has been known to cause side-splitting injuries. They both, however, include emergency first aid amongst their many qualifications.
