Formed in 1986, The Christians are one of the UK’s favourite soul/pop bands with hits including ‘Ideal World’ and ‘Harvest For The World’.

Blues Festival Date. Sat 11th October Time. 7pm

The legendary Cornish comic returns with another bout of heavyweight belly crunching comedy. He’s slightly politically incorrect, but rated by many as the funniest man in the land. If you don’t laugh at this show, you need psychological help!! *Contains adult material.

The album has secured their fourth consecutive 9/10 review in the NME (a unique feat not achieved by any other band in the history of the magazine) and scores of glowing reviews including a declaration from The Times that ‘The Seldom Seen Kid’ is ‘surely one of the year’s best records’. Expect ‘a show of delicate finesse and brutal booming beauty’ Daily Telegraph, containing ‘a spellbinding set of songs that keep them stratospheres above the majority of modern British rock groups’ NME. / Box Office 01872 262466

Their debut album entered the UK charts in 1987 at number 2, selling over a million copies and their second album ‘Colour’ reached UK number 1. The Christians are looking forward to performing their hot songs along with new ones to their fans on their 2008 UK tour.

Now in their 37th year, Wishbone Ash are one of the most influential bands around; no one does twin guitar better. The Hamsters tore the place apart last year, Bob Harris called them ‘one of Britain’s best live bands’. Carvin Jones ‘The Phoenix Thunderbolt’ brings his Hendrix/Stevie Ray Vaughan inspired blues/rock... a guaranteed showman. A must for all guitar fans.

Bath Philharmonia presents a rare treat – a double-bill of two of composer Howard Blake’s most popular pieces - The Bear and the iconic The Snowman. Originally composed as orchestral scores for the Raymond Briggs cartoons, these highly evocative compositions are married with a vivid narration, given by actor Russell Boulter, and featuring the seasonal anthem ‘Walking in The Air’, performed by a young soprano. Bath Philharmonia is a leading professional orchestra and its players are some of the finest and most experienced orchestral musicians in Britain.

Hofesh Shechter Company In your rooms and Uprising Date. Tues 2nd December Time. 8pm Tickets. £16, £14, £10 (RV) Concessions. £14, £12 Schools / college groups (15 or more). £6 Rising star of the contemporary dance world, Hofesh Shechter is hotly tipped as dance’s next big thing his work was recently seen by millions of viewers when he was commissioned to choreograph the opening dance sequence for E4’s hit TV series Skins. In your rooms brims with gritty physicality and is at times provocative, political and deeply personal. 12

dancers present a society that is scarily alienating and yet shockingly familiar. The work features a hauntingly beautiful original score, created by Shechter in collaboration with Nell Catchpole (The Gogmagogs), performed live on stage by five musicians. In Uprising seven men emerge from the shadows to bombard the stage with furious energy, bonding and sparring, making up and falling out. This highly charged work, set to a throbbing percussive score also composed by Shechter, leaves audiences buzzing. ‘Probably the most important new dance work to be created in Britain since the millennium’ The Observer Presented by Dance Touring Partnership

Cold hearts seek comfort and poor souls look for love. A woman nurses her dying father and waits in the dark for relief to come; a cleaner greedily devours her open university course in the fight for a better life; a career woman seeks the path that her life never took, and the loyal friend, always in the shadows, fears he will disappear one day and no-one will notice.

We are in the lonely hearts column of life. ‘Save me’ is the silent call that drifts from their aching bodies. But wait. Has someone heard their cry? Will they be saved from the dark? Yes! He’s here! Don John is here! Dangerous, naughty and irresistible, Don John enters lives and leaves them changed. Oh yes, he leaves, for Don John belongs to nobody but himself and The Devil! Cornwall’s Kneehigh return with a new production inspired by the Don Juan, Casanova and Don Giovanni stories. Don John is the latest re-telling in this genre. With a sensational score of specially commissioned music, Kneehigh bring their storytelling magic to this seductive tale with a visually stunning new production. age 11+
