Hannah Scott Posted: 1, 2015 07: 1 | Edit
Under the Edge Arts are pleased to present Hannah Scott at the Chipping Hall, W-u-E, GL12 7AD at 8pm.

Pairing with long-standing collaborator and multi-instrumentalist Stefano Della Casa, Hannah will be performing the songs from her recent release ‘The Space In Between’ to venues and festivals across the country.

Much of the inspiration behind Hannah Scott’s music can be found in her affinity with Italy following a year living and working there in her late teens. Her arresting live performances have earned her support slots for the likes of 10cc and Seth Lakeman. She has been The Guardian’s New Band Of The Day and has featured regularly in MOJO Magazine.

Electric Picture House - Love Labour's Lost (Live Broadcast) Posted: 9, 2014 12: 2 | Edit
Showing Live on Wednesday 11th February at 7pm.

Summer 1914. In order to dedicate themselves to a life of study, the King and his friends take an oath to avoid the company of women for three years. No sooner have they made their idealistic pledge than the Princess of France and her ladies-in-waiting arrive, presenting the men with a severe test of their high-minded resolve.

Shakespeare's sparkling comedy delights in championing and then unravelling an unrealistic vow, and mischievously suggesting that the study of the opposite sex is in fact the highest of all academic endeavours. Only at the end of the play is the merriment curtailed as the lovers agree to submit to a period apart, unaware that the world around them is about to be utterly transformed by the war to end all wars.

Christopher Luscombe directs one acting company in both Love's Labour's Lost and Love's Labour's Won (usually known as Much Ado About Nothing). Christopher's directing credits include The Comedy of Errors and The Merry Wives of Windsor for Shakespeare's Globe as well as The Madness of George III and Spamalot in the West End.

The Songs of Leonard Cohen Posted: 1, 2015 07: 1 | Edit
Don't miss Keith James in concert at The Chipping Hall, W-u-E, GL12 7AD at 8pm
Each song stripped back - desolate, naked and sensual
Enigmatic, mysterious and sub textural, songwriter Leonard Cohen is an unflinching character, with an exact sense of prose, a wry humour and courage to wrestle with the unspoken, forgiving human frailty with the brush of each line.

His recent spectacular world tour of stadium venues has been successful beyond belief but has not, with regret, exposed the solitary inner strength of his greatest songs in their original perfect form.
Keith James; with a lifetime reputation of performing in this exact way and an undying love of the pure song gives you a concert of this amazing material in the most intimate and sensitive way imaginable.
