Before she becomes Cruella de Vil, teenaged Estella has a dream. She wishes to become a fashion designer, having been gifted with talent, innovation, and ambition all in equal measures. But life seems intent on making sure her dreams never come true. Having wound up penniless and orphaned in London at 12, 4 years later Estella runs wild through the city streets with her best friends and partners-in-(petty)-crime, Horace and Jasper, two amateur thieves. When a chance encounter vaults Estella into the world of the young rich and famous, however, she begins to question the existence she's built for herself in London and wonders whether she might, indeed, be destined for more after all. When an up-and-coming rock star commissions Estella to design him a signature piece, she begins to feel as though she has truly arrived. But what is the cost of keeping up with the fast crowd- and is it a price Estella is willing to pay?

Escher: Journey to Infinity (PG)

The life and work of M.C. Escher is presented primarily through his own words in the form of his writings being read against a backdrop of images associated to him, including archival footage of himself and images of his drawings. Many further details are provided by surviving family members. Escher himself considered what he did being caught between the worlds of art and mathematics - he not very good at either - his drawings always having an element of geometry. He made a conscious decision to work in monochromatic black and white realizing that he would be missing being able to convey ideas that are inherent with colour. The evolution to two of his later periods is discussed, namely his series of drawings of the human eye, and what would become his ultimate fascination, that of the concept of infinity, whether it be real, as in the circle or the study of a man viewing a picture of himself viewing a picture of himself and so on, or perceived through illusions.

Folk at the Flavel are proud to welcome to the Flavel the band credited with launching folk rock in the UK and one of the most iconic bands of any genre, Fairport Convention.


Fairport have been entertaining music lovers for over half a century but one thing has remained the same - Fairport’s passion for performance. This is reflected in a busy touring schedule and of course the famous annual Fairport Convention Cropredy Festival which has just celebrated its 40th year. Their performance will present a mix of long-established Fairport favourites and some surprises from albums old and new including their latest album ‘Shuffle & Go’ which will be released in February 2020.

Flook (All ages)

Folk at the Flavel welcomes back for a second visit Flook, one of the legendary folk bands of the late 1990's and early 2000's.


After forming in 1997, Flook had a remarkably successful performing and recording career. The sheer enjoyment of playing together shone through their albums but was also a key factor in their very successful live shows. Three studio albums, "Flatfish" released in 1999, "Rubai" in 2002 and "Haven" in 2005 were all critically acclaimed and they won the accolade of Best Group at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2006, having previously been nominated for Best Album. After a long hiatus they reformed a few years ago and in 2019 released a new album, “Ancora”. This was brilliantly received and was nominated in the best album category at the BBC Radio 2 folk awards. Flook are: flautists Brian Finnegan and Sarah Allen, guitarist Ed Boyd and bodhran maestro, John Joe Kelly. They weave and spin traditionally rooted tunes into an enthralling sound, with agile but tight rhythms and virtuoso improvisation.


Flook possesses a rare blend of fiery technical brilliance, delicate ensemble interaction and a bold, adventurous musical imagination. The rapport between these four musicians, and the sheer enjoyment they developed in playing together, is second to none. There is no shortage of virtuosity amongst the members of Flook, but the unique impact of this sensational Anglo-Irish group stems from the wholly intuitive, almost symbiotic, exchange between the musicians.

Keith James:Music of Cat Stevens (All ages)

Proceeds and audience donations from this tour of concerts will go to the UNICEF UK Syrian Children’s appeal.



 

This Concert is performed as a gesture of belief in the possibility that harmony and understanding between us all may be interwoven into today’s World.


Keith James


Presents an honest and loving reflection of the timeless and insightful music of


Yusuf - Cat Stevens


It is hardly surprising that, to mark its 50th anniversary, Yusuf has entirely re-recorded and re-released his remarkable Album Tea for the Tillerman, with each of the unforgettable 11 songs re-conceptualized and re-imagined and gifted back to us among all the uncertainties of 2020, 2021 and beyond.


During the early 1970s, amassed body of music from this hugely popular and sincerely loved singer/songwriter made for a collection of 'must have' records across a whole generation. Tea for the Tillerman and Teaser and the Firecat were on everyone's turntables and on every radio station, live versions are played in concerts, bars and on the world's beaches to this day. Songs such as Wild World, Father and Son, Moonshadow and Where do the Children Play have been covered by hundreds of Artists worldwide.


Keith James is a long standing, well-respected and inventive concert performer who specialises in playing intimate, carefully researched biographic style concerts of those he has studied and revered as writers over the years.


He weaves the story of Cat Stevens’ life from his early pop career, life threatening illness and spiritual journey around a performance of his beautifully-crafted and memorable songs.

This concert will give you far more than just the music itself...


There is a huge amount of insight into the history and the spirit of Cat Stevens; his early pop career, his illness that changed him existentially and spiritually into an incredibly thoughtful and loving singer songwriter; such that his songs are remembered instantly for their uplifting sense of vision, truth and human fragility.

Much to talk about the background and embryo of each song; some of which will be performed as all of us remember and some, carefully and intuitively re-voiced; respectfully re-interpreted with rich, balanced guitar arrangements and a more personal vocal approach.

Yusuf campaigns on many educational and humanitarian issues, he was awarded the 'Man of Peace' award by the Nobel Peace Laureates.

In 2015 and he received the Lifetime achievement award from BBC Radio 2 and the Ivor Novello Award for outstanding song collection.

He has received two honorary doctorates and awards for promoting peace from two organisations founded by Mikhail Gorbachev.


‘Some of the most atmospheric and emotive music you will ever hear’ The Independent


‘Keith James has become a pillar of trust. A sublimely intimate and engaging voice’ Sunday Times

‘certainly the UK’s most celebrated and evocative interpreter of golden music’ The Guardian


‘a sensitive and pleasingly understated delivery, all the better that the songs might speak for themselves’ Acoustic Magazine

Martin is known as a guitarist of formidable talent equally at home playing English traditional folk, American folk and blues and his own compositions. He is universally acclaimed as one of the finest ever acoustic and slide guitar players. He is also a fine banjo-picker to boot and his solo shows bear witness to an artist at the very top of his game. Whether interpreting material from traditional sources or singing his own potent self-penned songs, Martin is a remarkable storyteller.


Martin continues to collaborate with a dazzling array of people from across the musical spectrum: Jackson Browne, Martin Taylor, June Tabor, Richard Hawley, Bonnie Raitt, Danny Thompson, Richard Thompson and Dom Flemons are among the great musicians he has worked with. In recent years, he has been a lynchpin in the award-winning group, Full English and has recorded and toured with Andy Cutting and Nancy Kerr.


He has had the most nominations of any performer in the 18 years of the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards winning the accolade of musician of the year twice. A virtuoso player without question, above all Martin Simpson conveys his diverse treasure trove of material from the heart, performing with rare subtlety, intensity and honesty. A true master of his art.

Join us for a boppy evening you won't forget, with guaranteed hip gyration, possibly even full blown dad dancing...... and no Rick Astley!
