Friday 21 February Huntley Archive Film : World War 1

2014 is the centenary of the outbreak of World War 1. This was the first war where the public demanded to know what was happening to the men and film was one way the story came home.

Saturday 15 March Northanger Abbey by Box Tale Soup

This version of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey has been created and adapted en�rely by the company. With the appearance of beau�ful paper puppets and handmade costumes and props, this produc�on stretches the imagina�on and brings out every last drop of Austen’s wit, playfulness and humour. You could have heard a pin drop: the audience was hanging on every word and character, and the strange thing about the puppets is how completely real they become -Joanna Lumley Assembly Rooms, Presteigne 8pm Tickets £8 from No. 46 Wine Bar, Presteigne and on the door

An excellent and highly intriguing banjo-playing singer/songwriter, based in New York City, Cur�s Eller has successfully brought a variety of influences to his unorthodox folk-rock vision. His work has an old�me feel, drawing on influences from the ‘20s, ‘30s, and ‘40s plus a modern perspec�ve and a healthy dose of rock & roll energy. Many of the lyrics deal with American poli�cs.
