Welcome to our latest programme, designed to entertain you and yours through the long dark evenings ahead. I’m personally delighted to be hosting and playing in a full-on Jazz extravaganza over a single October weekend, featuring some of my favourite musicians and people I’m so proud to be working with in Berwick – taking us all on a very cool journey from early Jazz to full blown R&B, with some sumptuous Soul Food on the menu too. We’re also fully immersed in Berwick Festival Opera, with two new productions ahead – a wickedly funny Arthur Sullivan double bill, followed up by Donizetti’s Rita in the New Year. And for children, we have full scale stage versions of Judith Kerr’s legendary The Tiger Who Came to Tea, and Nick Sharratt’s Shark in the Park, with every favourite scene brought magically to life. We’ve got an especially strong line up for the Christmas season this year. Our fabulous team of professionals are hard at work on another glorious Berwick Panto – this year with a swashbuckling twist in The Adventures of Sinbad. But we’ve also got Dickens, live music, family films, comedy, a live performance of The Nutcracker by the Russian National Ballet, and Handel’s Messiah (at Paxton House) as well as a show-stopping cookery demonstration with Berwick’s very own MasterChef finalist Lorna Robertson. This rich mix of high quality professional work and showcasing the finest regional talent is the backbone of our programme. So please support the companies and The Maltings by sharing the programme with friends, family and colleagues and joining us for as many of these events as you can – and be sure to check the website regularly to keep up to speed with our film programme. We look forward to seeing you at The Maltings again soon.

JAZZ WEEKEND FRIDAY 13 OCTOBER

THE DON PATERSON SITUATION 8pm Henry Travers Studio £12.50/£10

Though better known as one of the UK’s leading poets, Don Paterson has had a parallel career as a guitarist. He moved to London in the mid 80s to join the free-improv scene, taking lessons with the great guitar maverick Derek Bailey. For twelve years he co-led the Celtic-Jazz ensemble Lammas with saxophonist Tim Garland - sharing stages and studios with a long list of jazz luminaries, including Kenny Wheeler, Joe Locke, and Jason Rebello. For his new project, he’s turned his unusual fingerstyle technique to electric as well as acoustic guitar, and is playing a mix of new and old compositions influenced by his long-term engagement with Jazz, electronic, classical and Celtic music. His band, described as “a Scottish-accented Pat Metheny Group” features regular collaborator Steve Hamilton on keyboards (formerly of Bill Bruford’s Earthworks, currently touring with drumming legend Billy Cobham), Euan Burton (Salt House), on bass, and the Scottish National Jazz Orchestra’s drumming dynamo Alyn Cosker.

JAZZ 1

SATURDAY 14 OCTOBER

JAZZ GUITAR WORKSHOP Fred Thelonious Baker 11.30am Stage Door Bar £8

This renowned bass player and inspirational teacher has given masterclasses and toured all over the world with the likes of Courtney Pine, Robert Wyatt, John Etheridge, Martin Simpson, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and Fairport Convention. “I will be demonstrating at least one of my solo guitar pieces from the Life Suite album and talking about its construction. For the practical part of the workshop, I’ll be looking at least one of Pat Metheney’s early compositions i.e. Phase Dance and look at the harmonic construction and modal aspects of improvisation.” Intermediate to advanced level, observers welcome.

“IF YOU LOVE JAZZ AND JAZZ CULTURE I PROMISE YOU WILL LOVE THIS WEEKEND”


SATURDAY 14 OCTOBER

THE HISTORY OF JAZZ PIANO Geoff Eales

2pm Henry Travers Studio £11 For this labour of love, pianist Geoff Eales takes the audience on a breathtaking journey through the entire history of Jazz piano. Beginning with the sedate ragtime of Scott Joplin and culminating in the spontaneous improvisations of Eales himself, Geoff pays homage to, amongst others, Jelly Roll Morton, Fats Waller, Art Tatum, Oscar Peterson, Dave Brubeck, Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, McCoy Tyner, Chick Corea and Keith Jarrett. “Eales has never disguised his respectful devotion to masters such as Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock and his glossy technique as a straight swinger is formidable.” John Fordham (The Guardian)

JAZZ 2

SATURDAY 14 OCTOBER

AMERICAN DREAMS: THE MUSIC OF PAT METHENY 8pm Henry Travers Studio £15

All our Jazz fusion ambitions for this weekend come together for a must-see concert! Featuring guitar, keyboard and Bass in the smoothest of tributes to the original Pat Matheny Group, Fred Thelonius Baker will be focussing on their early years including American Garage and Offramp, playing a classic Gibson 175, an acoustic guitar and guitar synth to produce the typical sounds of the period.

Friday 17 November 8pm & Saturday 18 November 2pm & 8pm

COX AND BOX

Libretto by F C Burnand,music by Arthur Sullivan. Berwick Festival Opera’s latest joyful foray into Victorian comic opera is a slight detour from our previous full scale outings (Pirates of Penzance, The Mikado and Iolanthe). A mini opera based on a popular 1847 farce, and a youthful Sullivan’s first comic opera, this one act musical masterpiece pre-dates his stellar 25 year partnership with W S Gilbert (which started in 1871) by 5 years. F C Burnand was a well know librettist of the time and sometime editor of Punch. This frivolous yet charming tale, full of sparkling tunes and musical humour, is about a landlord (Sergeant Bouncer) who double lets a room to two lodgers, one working nights and one working days. All is well until one of the men has the day off, they meet each other in a way that ’s far too close for comfort, and tempers flare...

plus “...AND SULLIVAN!”

A new one act companion play Arthur Sullivan was a publicly performed composer by the age of 8, acclaimed as the saviour of English music when barely into his twenties, and wealthy, knighted and dead at the age of 58. This bitter-sweet one-act musical play by Matthew Rooke explores the tensions that defined Sullivan’s professional standing and his self-image - the more the public loved him, the more the critics hated him, and the more he hated himself. Age guidance 8+. 2h20m approx. £20 (£18 concs), accompanied under 16s go FREE (two free tickets per adult)

The Archive of Smith, Berwick: From Photo-News Service to Photo Centre The Granary Gallery 28 January 2017 - May 2018 Wednesday - Sunday | 11am - 4pm When David Smith began his photo news agency in Berwick in 1951, demand for his work came thick and fast at a local and national level. An experienced journalist with a keen eye for a story, he captured a wide range of subjects, from a visiting celebrity to a runaway circus elephant, not to mention a host of wedding and portrait commissions. As the business expanded, Smith opened the Photo Centre on Bridge Street and was joined by his son Ian and a team of staff photographers. On Ian Smith’s retirement in 2012, the company archive represented a remarkable record of the town and its people and was acquired by Berwick Record Office. Drawing on this unique collection, the exhibition will tell the story of this family-run press agency and photo studio, and place it in the context of broader developments in photography.

Opera dei Lumi brings together some of the UK’s finest young singers and musicians to explore the hope, drama and joy of this towering masterpiece – and an essential part of the Festive Season at concert halls the world over. This performance will be a rare chance to hear Messiah in its original version, exactly as it was heard during its first performances in Dublin in 1742. Featuring many of the composer ’s most famous choruses (notably the Hallelujah), interspersed with arias of unparalleled virtuosity and beautiful lyricism, join us to revel in the effervescent splendour of this magnificent choral work. All ages. 2h30m approx. £15 (£13 concs)

The Transports

A tale of exile and migration

Tuesday 23 January 7.30pm

Join some of Britain’s leading folk musicians for a truly 5 star event – a timely retelling of Peter Bellamy’s legendary folk ballads in a new production that’s had rave reviews across the UK. The Transports combines incredible music with spell-binding storytelling as it reveals the powerful tale of an impoverished family’s exile to the Australian colonies in search of a new life. A rare chance to see such stellar musicians together live on stage, the show features musical arrangements by PAUL SARTIN of Bellowhead and Faustus. Two-time BBC Folk Award winners THE YOUNG’UNS bring their trademark dynamism. Further musical excellence comes from NANCY KERR, Bellowhead’s RACHAEL MCSHANE, Faustus’ BENJI KIRKPATRICK and SAUL ROSE, and GREG RUSSELL. Storyteller Matthew Crampton has created fresh narration for the show, amplifying its central tale into a broader exploration of exile and migration. After a sell-out UK tour across the UK in 2017, The Transports is delighted to be touring once more in 2018.

“Stunning....truly a transport of delight” The Guardian “An ensemble success....ten voices uniting in magnificently lusty, rousing chorus” The Herald THE MALTINGS FR IE N DS

Gaetano Donizetti

Friday 23 February 7.30pm & Saturday 24 February 2pm & 7.30pm Stage Door Bar With a truly fabulous central character, irresistibly charming music, and our definitively authentic setting in The Maltings Stage Door Bar, this one act comic opera is guaranteed to warm up the last days of winter. Our ‘heroine’ is a larger-than-life and twice as fierce landlady, who dominates her timid second husband. A riot of confusion ensues when her long-thought-to-be-dead first husband returns to find proof of a rumour he’d heard that Rita has died in a fire. Both ‘husbands’ end up competing with each other to see who’ll have the pleasure of leaving Rita once and for all… A domestic comedy consisting of eight musical episodes connected by spoken dialogue, it was completed in 1841 under its original title Deux hommes et une femme (Two Men and a Woman) but never performed in Donizetti’s lifetime. Rita premiered posthumously at the Opera Comique in Paris in 1860 where it had originally been scheduled to open many years before. Although only sporadically performed in the 100 years following its premiere, it has since become one of Donizetti’s most frequently performed operas.

She brought workplace exploitation and racism to the fore, stood up for workers’ rights, and turned the dispute into a national movement for human rights that’s inspired subsequent generations.
