Admittedly the 80s were responsible for some truly awful stuff. Neon. Shoulder pads. Mullets! But, despite the questionable fashion choices and horrendous hair, there was some great music.

Riviera Dogs are a well-known, polished and very popular 5 piece band based in Torquay delivering fantastic music from the decades that taste forgot.

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

Exhibition on Screen is thrilled to bring back one of its most successful films ever, offering a unique and fascinating exploration of the life and times of Paul Cézanne.

Paul Cézanne.

Fairport Convention (15)

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. Fairport Convention have won a BBC Lifetime Achievement Award and Radio 2 listeners voted their ground-breaking album Liege & Lief 'The Most Influential Folk Album of All Time'. The band, which launched the careers of Richard Thompson and the late Sandy Denny, features the long established line up of founding member Simon Nicol on guitar and vocals, Dave Pegg on bass guitar (celebrating his fiftieth year in Fairport), Ric Sanders on violin, Chris Leslie on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, and Gerry Conway on percussion.

"Stuffing their set with a surprising amount of new material, Fairport are still clearly having fun and brought the house down." The Guardian

Flook (15)

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.

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami (15)

Electrifying concert performances and intimate, personal footage showcase the life and talent of singer and actress Grace Jones.

Larger than life, wild, scary and androgynous - Grace Jones plays all these parts. Yet here we also discover her as a lover, daughter, mother, sister and even grandmother, as she submits herself to our gaze and allows us to understand what constitutes her mask.

The stage is where her most extreme embodiments are realised and her theatrical imagination lets loose: this is where the musical of her life is played out. The film includes Grace's unique performances singing iconic hits such as Slave To The Rhythm, Pull Up To The Bumper, as well as the more recent autobiographical tracks Williams' Bloods and Hurricane. These personal songs also link to Grace's family life, as the film takes us on a holiday road trip across Jamaica, where her family roots and the story of her traumatic childhood are uncovered. In Jamaican patois, 'Bloodlight' is the red light that illuminates when an artist is recording and 'Bami' means bread, the substance of daily life.

Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami weaves together the layers of Grace Jones' public and private life, as she moves effortlessly between different facets: she is gypsy, artist and partying hedonist, warm and funny but also a fierce and tenacious businesswoman. The performance continues to move thematically though the film, with Love Is The Drug acting like an aria, bringing the film to its final and most touching scenes. This is a Grace we have not seen before, someone who reminds us of what it is to dare to be truly alive.

All tickets: £12.00

I am Woman (15)

In 1966, Helen Reddy arrives in New York with her three-year-old daughter, a suitcase, and $230 in her pocket. She had been told she'd won a recording contract, but the record company promptly dashes her hopes by telling her it has enough female stars and suggests that she have fun in New York before returning home to Australia. Helen, without a visa, decides to stay in New York anyway and pursue a singing career, struggling to make ends meet and provide for her daughter. She befriends legendary rock journalist Lillian Roxon, who becomes her closest confidante. Lillian inspires her to write and sing the iconic song "I Am Woman" which becomes the anthem for the second-wave feminist movement and galvanizes a generation of women to fight for change. She also meets Jeff Wald, a young aspiring talent manager who becomes her agent and husband. Jeff helps her get to the top, but he also suffers from a drug addiction that gradually turns their relationship toxic.

Martin Simpson (15)

One of the true greats of the folk world, renowned guitarist Martin Simpson, will be performing at the Flavel Arts Centre in Dartmouth on 17th September 2021.

This will be Martins' fourth visit to the Flavel and the concert will no doubt be a fantastic evening of superb musicianship if the previous three are anything to go by. 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.

Sunflowers (PG)

Sunflowers - The Mystery of Van Gogh's Greatest Masterpiece

Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers are among his most famous works, and are some of the most iconic paintings in the world. In an extraordinary exhibition, the Van Gogh Museum took a new and revealing look at the five publicly-owned versions of sunflowers in a vase. And once again, the Van Gogh museum opened its doors exclusively to Exhibition on Screen.

They are immediately recognisable, but our film goes beyond the surface to explore the many questions and mysteries that surround these works. Why, for example, did Van Gogh choose the exotic sunflower with its long stem and golden crown? Indeed, when did the flower itself arrive in Europe and how had previous artists reacted to it? What was Van Gogh trying to say with his works and how does that differ from version to version? And what secrets did scientists discover when they analysed the work in detail? All is revealed in this fascinating film, which travelled beyond Amsterdam to Tokyo, Philadelphia, London and Munich to film, in incredible high-definition detail, all five of the works.

Each painting is different and has its own unique story, spanning one of the most famous and turbulent periods in art history. All five paintings are also now considered to be in such a delicate state that there will never be a show with all five alongside one another ever again. Only in this film will you have a chance to see that on the screen – in our virtual exhibition. In doing so, the film brings to audiences many new levels of understanding both about the paintings and about Vincent van Gogh.

A unique opportunity to see, as never before, this series of spectacular paintings.

Features five of the famous Arles Sunflowers from collections in London, Philadelphia, Tokyo, Munich and Amsterdam
