Rob Newman’s Total Eclipse Of Descartes

Go Now! The Music Of The Moody Blues

Stacey Kent

In a world gone crazy, can philosophy help? This sparklingly brilliant new show tries to give you the answer. Rob Newman (stand up legend, best-selling novelist, Radio 4 Sony Award Winner) attempts to piece together a philosophy for our troubled times by sifting through 3000 years of thought: from Pythagoras to Artificial Intelligence by way of Pavlov’s dogs, Jane Goodall’s chimpanzees and Frankie Howerd’s trousers.

This show is an opportunity to experience all the classic hits, including Nights in White Satin, Go Now, Tuesday Afternoon, plus Forever Autumn and a show-stealing rendition of Eve of the War from Jeff Wayne’s The War of the Worlds.

“He is the funniest comedian I have ever seen… A passionate, chaotically brilliant comedian.” Sunday Times The Roses’ comedy programme is sponsored by

Drummer Gordy Marshall played with The Moody Blues for over 25 years. He is joined by Mick Wilson (10cc), Tim Maple (Leona Lewis), Malcolm Moore (James Blunt), Patrick Duffin (Jersey Boys) and Lindsay Goodhand (Rod Stewart). Relive classic, million-selling albums Days of Future Passed, To Our Children’s Children and much more in an intimate evening of sensational musicianship and iconic songs that define a generation. The Moody Blues were inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in April this year.

The internationally acclaimed, Grammy-nominated vocalist returns to the UK for a very select number of 2018 dates, featuring music from her latest album ‘I Know I Dream’ (Sony Music/Okeh). This beautiful collection of songs includes American Standards, Bossa Nova classics and Chansons, as well as original songs, and reprises of some of Stacey’s most loved repertoire including numbers co-written by Nobel prizewinner Kazuo Ishiguro, whose songwriting partnership with Stacey has formed an essential plank of her repertoire. With career sales approaching 2 million albums, Stacey’s 11th studio album, ‘I Know I Dream’, is a highlight not only for its breathtaking beauty but also for its assured expressiveness. “Devastatingly stylish” The Observer

Black Is The Color Of My Voice Written and performed by Apphia Campbell Direct from sell-out performances in Shanghai, New York and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Apphia Campbell embarks on her debut UK tour.


The Counterfeit Stones: Street Fighting Sham Why pay a fortune to see ants in a stadium when for a fraction of the price you can get up close and smell the faking brilliance of the Counterfeit Stones - described as Rolling Stones’ hooky masterpiece.

Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Black Is The Color Of My Voice follows a successful jazz singer and civil rights activist seeking redemption after the untimely death of her father. She reflects on the journey that took her from a young piano prodigy destined for a life in the service of the church, to a renowned jazz vocalist at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement. “Campbell may wear Simone’s trademark head wrap but her performance goes beyond impersonation” The Times “Apphia Campbell is nothing short of sensational… she will make you cheer for her, smile with her and then sting your eyes with tears” Broadway Baby

Led by Lindsay Martin, the choir meet weekly at The Roses and fill the building with their infectious harmonies. See page 25 for details.

Tewkesbury Town Band

Tom Allen: Absolutely

Join Tewkesbury Town Band for their hugely popular annual Christmas concerts. Come in out of the cold and enjoy a great family Christmas concert with a selection of new and classic festive tunes and a few sing-along items too. Our ever popular Town Band is busy throughout the year with concerts, parades and festivals in the town and beyond. Finish off the year with some festive fun.

Tom Allen’s unique style of sharp, acerbic wit and camp, riotous storytelling has seen him sell out shows all over the country.

Jeremy Hardy is in his 4th decade as a stand-up this year. That’s a more dramatic way of saying he started 34 years ago and, without a lottery win, probably has at least another 34 years to go. Jeremy’s television credits include: Jack Dee’s Election Helpdesk, QI, Mock The Week, Grumpy Old Men, Back In The Day and Not Tonight With John Sergeant. “In an ideal world, Jeremy Hardy would be extremely famous, but an ideal world would leave him without most of his best material” The Guardian

“Riotous stuff, perfectly delivered” Scotsman “Gives the tradition of camp comedy a firmly 21st century twist” The Guardian

She has now been painting professionally for over 20. Bliss is the radio, a mug of coffee, and a paintbrush in her hand, experimenting with different colour combinations and textures. Penny loves painting imaginary country scenes and trees with a story to tell.

Sal Parker Sal, 47 years old, did not pick up a pencil or an art package until she was 40! Her work varies from pencil sketches that are painted in photoshop to photography, some pure and some used as inspiration. For Sal, art is pure escapism; it is the only thing that removes her from the world. If someone else enjoys it too then that is a bonus.

The Darkest Minds (12A) A

The Big Bad Fox & Other Tales (U)

This thought provoking sci-fi based on Alexandra Bracken’s young adult novel takes place in a world ravaged by a plague that has killed near all of America’s children, with the ones left acquiring special abilities. 16-year-old Ruby escapes from a government internment camp with a group of teenagers who plot to start a rebellion and exact revenge upon those who have tortured their generation.

Reminiscent of classic Loony Tunes cartoons, this series of zany, fast-paced hand-drawn animations introduces us to a farmyard full of animal misfits. A Fox thinks it’s a chicken, a Rabbit acts like a stork, and a Duck wants to replace Father Christmas! Underneath all the gags and slapstick humour, the three stories offer a sensitive and beautiful portrayal of family, and the anxieties of modern life.

Citizen Kane (U) Frequently hailed to as the best film ever made, Welles’ début was acclaimed for its visual and narrative innovation on release and still stands today up as a landmark in the history of cinema. Loosely based on the life of US businessman William Randolph Hearst, it charts the rise and fall of millionaire newspaper tycoon Charles Foster Kane, and the mystery behind his final utterance “Rosebud”.

Falstaff: Chimes At Midnight (PG) For many Welles aficionados, this was his best film, a view shared by Welles himself. Channelling several Shakespeare plays, it gives centre stage to Falstaff, turning him from comic relief to roguish anti-hero, a role Welles was born to play. Henry IV, Richard II, Henry V and The Merry Wives of Windsor are all thrown into the mix to chart Falstaff ‘s friendship with Prince Hal, and his rejection when the Prince becomes King.

Live Screenings Julie by Polly Stenham after Strindberg Vanessa Kirby (The Crown) and Eric Kofi Abrefa (The Amen Corner) feature in the cast of this brand new production. Wild and newly single, Julie throws a late night party. In the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them. Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean – which rapidly descends into a savage fight for survival. This new version of August Strindberg’s play Miss Julie remains shocking and fiercely relevant in its new setting of contemporary London.

Thursday 6 September 7pm

King Lear by William Shakespeare Jonathan Munby directs Ian McKellen in this contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and shocking play. Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle. “Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production” Daily Telegraph

Thursday 27 September 7pm

The Madness of George III by Alan Bennett Written by one of Britain’s best-loved playwrights, this epic play is National Theatre Live’s first ever broadcast from Nottingham Playhouse. It’s 1786 and King George III is the most powerful man in the world. But his behaviour is becoming increasingly erratic as he succumbs to fits of lunacy. With the King’s mind unravelling at a dramatic pace, ambitious politicians and the scheming Prince of Wales threaten to undermine the power of the Crown, and expose the fine line between a King and a man.

Sunday 2 December 7pm (pre-recorded)

Antony & Cleopatra by William Shakespeare Ralph Fiennes and Sophie Okonedo play Shakespeare’s famous fated couple in his great tragedy of politics, passion and power. Caesar and his assassins are dead. General Mark Antony now rules alongside his fellow defenders of Rome. But at the fringes of a war-torn empire the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra and Mark Antony have fallen fiercely in love. In a tragic fight between devotion and duty, obsession becomes a catalyst for war.
