Thank you to everyone who voted in the first ever National Rural Touring Awards. Quatt Village Hall were worthy winners of the ‘Most Welcoming Village Hall’, our trustee Hannah Prior claimed the ‘Best Newcomer to Rural Touring’ and Arts Alive was runner up in the ‘Most Supportive Touring Scheme’ category – all in all a great night for Arts Alive. Arts Alive and Flicks in the Sticks is a charity, and to keep the show on the road we need to raise funds. This September we launch our Catalyst Fundraising campaign. The good news is thanks to an award from the Arts Council we can now DOUBLE every £1 we are given, and with Gift Aid we can add another 25% on top of that. If you value arts on your doorstep please drop a donation in our boxes at events, add £1 when you buy tickets online, or sign up to support us through Easy Fundraising. Thank you Sian, Ian, Terri, Mary and Hazel – the Arts Alive/Flicks organisers

LIVE PERFORMANCES LIVING SPIT THE SIX WIVES OF HENRY VIII www.livingspit.co.uk

Howard Coggins looks like Henry VIII. There’s no escaping that. Stu McLoughlin doesn’t look like any of the wives, but he’s going to give it a go. After their previous historical drama is savaged in the press, Howard and Stu are at their wits end. Then they hit upon an idea that could change everything… With original music, embroidery and historical hysteria, this show is an ill-researched lesson in Tudor history that you’ll never forget. Suitable for age 16+ “A hugely enjoyable evening of daft comedy” (Venue) “Hysterically funny…left me with aching cheeks from laughing so much” (StageWon) Fri 29 Sep 7.30pm Steiner Academy Hereford HR2 8DL T  ickets: 01981 540221 £10/6/30 Also on Wed 11 Oct 7.30pm The Talbot Theatre, Whitchurch SY13 2BY  Tickets: 01948 660660/07506 724572 £11/5/30

CLYDEBUILT PUPPET THEATRE DINOSAUR DETECTIVES www.clydebuiltpuppet.co.uk

Dinosaur Detectives follows a fascinating journey surrounding the first fossil finds of Mary Anning, William Buckland and Gideon Mantell. Their finds changed the face of history when they discovered bones of creatures that became known in Victorian times as Dinosaurs. A performance with rod puppets, shadow play and large-scale projections shows the fascination, fun and the conflict that surrounds the search for ‘Dinosaurs’. Informative, entertaining and captivating, this will appeal to children over 5 and adults, with a bonus ‘fossil table’ at the end.

THEIR FINEST 12A Director: Lone Scherfig

Gemma Arterton, Sam Claflin, Bill Nighy 114 mins; British Comedy/Drama/Romance

The year is 1940, London. With the nation bowed down by war, the British ministry turns to propaganda films to boost morale at home. Realising their films could use ‘a woman's touch’, the ministry hires Catrin Cole as a scriptwriter in charge of writing the female dialogue. Catrin’s natural flair quickly gets her noticed by cynical, witty lead scriptwriter Buckley, and they set out to make an epic feature film based on the Dunkirk rescue, starring the gloriously vain, former matinee idol Ambrose Hilliard. As bombs are dropping all around them, they work furiously to make a film that will warm the hearts of the nation.

1963, winter. Daisy places her hand on the switch, presses it down, and life is never the same again. 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 allows us to gather and sing long into the night. A wonderful theatre treat for adults and older children from this popular company. Wed 22 Nov 7.30pm Talbot Theatre, Whitchurch SY13 2BY  Tickets: 01948 660660/07506 724572 £11/5/30
