NOEL AND GERTIE
The Key Theatre, The Embankment

Matthew Townshend Productions Presents Noel and Gertie. Tickets for this performance are £16 Full Price, £13 Concessions (including booking fee) This is a telegram exchange between Noel Coward and Gertrude Lawrence sent in 1930: Gertie: Play opens tomorrow. Bring a friend. If you have one. Noël: Cannot make opening night. Will come second night. If you have one. Noel & Gertie is a warm and witty musical comedy based on the legendary friendship and professional collaboration of actor, playwright and songwriter Noel and the alluring and charismatic actress Gertie. A major revival of Sheridan Morley’s hit play that originally ran in the West End for nine years, it is affectionately crafted from diaries and letters between a pair who epitomised an era of sophistication and elegance. Featuring songs, sketches and snippets of scenes the production has the entrancing effect of accurately portraying the relationship of this extraordinary duo, inseparable until Gertrude’s premature death of cancer, which left a large void in ‘the Master’s’ life. Matthew Townshend’s production company mtp is the creative drive behind this version of the hit show which was first seen in 1985. His production featured as part of Frinton Summer Theatre’s 2014 75th Anniversary season and met with rave reviews. With minute attention to detail, it takes a perfectly-orchestrated trip down memory lane and features scenes from Private Lives, Tonight at 8.30 (including ‘Red Peppers’ and ‘Still Life’) and Blithe Spirit. These are offset with many of the best-loved songs: Mrs Worthington, Dance Little Lady, Sail Away and, of course, I’ll See You Again. Intimate and fascinating, Noel & Gertie is set to entrance its audience with every smirk, every sharp rejoinder and every subtly raised eyebrow.

Since then his career has spanned cultures, audiences, art forms and continents. Today, JCC is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on today’s pop culture. Aside from his trademark ‘look’ continuing to resonate with fashionistas young and old, and his poetry included on national curriculum syllabus, his effect on modern music is huge. His influence can be heard within the keen social observations of the Arctic Monkeys and Plan B. These collaborations mean that John has been involved in 2 global number 1 albums in the last 2 years - with The Arctic Monkeys putting one of John's best loved poems, I Wanna Be Yours, to music on their critically acclaimed A:M Album His latest show, touring across the UK and Europe this year, is a mix of classic verse, extraordinary new material, hilarious ponderings on modern life, good honest gags, riffs and chat - a chance to witness a living legend at the top of this game.

FLEETINGWOOD MAC
Stamford Corn Exchange , Stamford

Introducing Fleetingwood Mac, a young and exciting new tribute to the legendary band Fleetwood Mac. They didn’t want to be just another tribute band, with tacky wigs and fancy dress outfits. Instead they wanted to bring across the live sound of Fleetwood Mac, with just one guitar, a keyboard, a drum kit, a man on the bass and of course, the vocals! They stick true to the classic Fleetwood Mac sound but can’t help but give it a modern edge, it’s just the way they play. How else are five people supposed to play tribute to a band that have lasted nearly 50 years? A band who have over time have featured eight different Guitarists & Vocalists. A band that tour arenas all over the world, with six extra touring musicians. A band that started out as part of the sixties British Blues Invasion and ended up as one of the biggest mainstream groups of the eighties. Let’s not even get into the scandals, relationships and excesses…… They also want to introduce the songs to a new generation of Fleetwood Mac fans, who just like themselves, weren’t even born when the band were in their prime. They do not go on stage pretending to be Fleetwood Mac, instead go on as who they are, five young musicians who love the music, and want to share the music of one of the worlds greatest bands to a wider audience.

LIZA FERSCHTMAN AND MARTIN ROSCOE
Stamford Arts Centre, Stamford

Liza Ferschtman is well known on the Continent as a concerto soloist and chamber musician. As a soloist she has played with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Rotterdam Philharmonic and many other orchestras in Europe, and as a chamber musician, she has played the complete Beethoven Violin Sonatas in the Concertgebouw. We also welcome back the acclaimed pianist, Martin Roscoe, famed as a concerto soloist, recitalist and chamber musician. He needs no introduction to a Stamford audience! The evening will begin with a set of four short marches arranged for violin and piano from opera, ballet and a play, ending with Kreisler’s delightful and amusing Viennese march. Beethoven’s Sonata Op. 30 No. 2 begins in a mood of defiance against fate but works through to periods of stunning beauty and tranquility. Britten’s Suite Op. 6 is one of his early compositions, begun at the age of 21 during a spell in Vienna, and reflects that Viennese influence. Strauss’s Violin Sonata is also an early piece; in it he expresses his love for Pauline de Ahna whom he was eventually to marry six years later. The show begins at 7.30pm and tickets are £16 per person. For further information call the box office on 01780 763203

HIDDEN HERITAGE TOUR
Peterborough Museum, Priestgate

If you’re looking for an escape from shopping, a fun way to spend a weekend afternoon or are simply curious about the history of our city, why not join in on a Hidden Heritage tour? The Hidden Heritage Tour is the essential guide to Peterborough’s past, and runs every Saturday afternoon at 2pm. Find out more about the fascinating and often undiscovered history of Peterborough, from the foundation of the Saxon abbey to the modern city. Discover the secrets of the Cathedral precincts, find out why the river is important as the heart of the city and hear about the many enthralling stories and personalities connected to our past. Learn why some of our earliest history is in the floors of the Queensgate shopping centre, who buried two Queens in the cathedral, and how Dickens and Shakespeare have both immortalised people from the city. Discover why we had a radio station called Hereward and why French prisoners were kept in the area. A must for visitors to the city or local residents alike! All tours last about 100 minutes and take place whatever the weather, starting from outside the Museum on Priestgate. Walkers can turn up and pay on the day although places can be pre-booked from Peterborough Museum 01733 864663, emailing museum@vivacity-peterborough.com or from the Visitor Information Centre 01733 452336.

MACBETH - 6FOOT STORIES
THE ANGLES THEATRE , Wisbech

A riotous and playful reinvention of Macbeth that puts the witches at the centre of this dark and bloody tragedy. Three gnarly fortune tellers live amongst the rats in an old junk yard, apart from decent society. Eager to teach the selfish world of man a lesson, they prepare a fortune reading that will destroy a throne and everything around it. Performed by just 3 actors with a junk yard set full of props, the major roles are swapped between them as they hurtle through the witches’ prophecy using storytelling, live music and physical theatre. Joyfully theatrical and inventive, this is Macbeth as you’ve never seen it before. “An intelligent, exhilaratingly blasphemous sprint through a revered Shakespearean tragedy” – Everything Theatre “madcap, bohemian and all together brilliant” – The Theatre Tourist Telephone: 01945 47 44 47 Email: office@anglestheatre.co.uk Early Tickets are £10

They offer a full hour of entertainment of a selection of songs from their extensive repertoire.

We are incredibly excited to welcome one of the rising talents in house and techno to Mixology. We welcome the brilliant Mall Grab! To be voted in the Resident Advisor top 100 DJs is some feat and Mall Grab has achieved this breaking all kinds of musical moulds on his rapid rise to recognition on the world stage in 2016. Previously working from the confines of his studio in his decidedly un-electronic hometown of Newcastle, Australia - now based in London - he is a clear example of the connective power of the Internet; proof that the web does have the ability get real talent noticed. His music has been described as “mildly celestial ‘hella stoned’ introspections that pay homage to old Three 6 Mafia mixtapes as much as more recent astral experiences in house and techno.” and 'a surefire purveyor of leg-stretching, dusty house material,” and we think there’s only more exciting things to come. Stripped back yet emotional, his love for music and fun is obvious - whether it's in his own productions, or one of his energy-filled dj sets. Get ready to hear some of the finest house and techno reverberate around Red Room. You'd be a fool to miss out on this Mixology!
