With Celtic and eastern influences, the 3 Daft Monkeys’ dynamic style of world folk music reflects the
global village in which we now live. Their infectious dancing rhythms lead you through a musical journey
of the senses and emotions, and will leave you breathless, enthralled and exhilarated.
After experiencing the band’s notoriously energetic live performance at Glastonbury Festival last
summer, Mark Radcliffe declared them as one of his “Highlights of the Festival” on BBC TV coverage,
and subsequently invited them to play a session on his BBC Radio 2 Folk Show. The band have also
performed a live session with Whispering Bob Harris on Radio 2.
With a brand new 4-piece line-up, the band weave enchanting melodies with catchy choruses, virtuoso
vibrant fiddle, rhythmic 12-string guitar, 6-string bass, bespoke hand-percussion and 4-part vocal
harmonies. Fascinating lyrics of personal and whimsical observations on life, and folk tales both ancient
and modern, are told within the swirling layers of their music, all with the essential catchy sing-along
chorus.

A brother condemned to walk forever in the shadow of death.

A family teetering on the brink of catastrophe.

A world where one girl dares to take a stand.

This blistering new adaptation sees Sophocles’ tragedy re-imagined in a dystopian landscape, where fate is written in code and where drones flock across the skies. Brought to life by innovative theatre company Actors of Dionysus, this production combines bold ideas with passionate and visceral physical theatre.

“Let nothing stop you from seeing them” The Times

Reviews of Helen 2016:

Originally formed as an opportunity to play their shared passion of the Border, Tex-Mex and Americana music that the members of the band love, they started as a practice band playing when other musical commitments allowed- top musicians just playing for fun. Word got around as word does and soon the band started playing gigs.

At least one member of this highly respected group will be very familiar. Los Pacaminos is fronted by one of the UK’s finest and best loved vocalists – Paul Young. However, Paul is not the only luminary in this seven piece band. Some of the best musicians in the business have teamed up to present an incendiary mix of classics and original material.

Paul says – “Los Pacaminos started out just for fun, playing simply for the pleasure of it, and it just took off from there. What’s really nice is that everyone else in the band can sing too, and they do, all in their own different styles. It’s real bar room stuff, foot stompers, not too many slow songs – a real party atmosphere.”

Tex-Mex music is somewhere between the Mariachi and Norteno styles of Mexico and the Country/Blues sounds of South-West America. The band empathises with Ry Cooder, Flaco Jimenez, The Texas Tornados and Los Lobos. Mix that together with blues, rock ‘n’ roll and a hint of South American music and you have Los Pacaminos. Their set includes songs like ‘Wooly Bully’, ‘La Bamba’ and sometimes, if enough tequila is flowing, even ‘Speedy Gonzales’.

The Band members are some of the best known names in the music industry, from a variety of backgrounds. They’ve covered all kinds of music, but the unifying factor is that they all have played in Paul Young’s bands through the 80’s and 90’s. Their friendships stretch back 20 to 30 years, and it’s these long term connections that underpin the very special atmosphere generated at a Los Pacaminos show. Members of the audience are often invited onstage to join the guys in a slug of Tequila.

You’ll be in good company, so put your blues on cruise and come join the Tex-Mex party…

Back on the road again and this time celebrating the 50th anniversary, Bournemouth based Arena Theatre presents Tom Stoppard’s seminal work.  Absurd and existential, funny and plain weird, the play expands upon the exploits of the titular two minor characters from Shakespeare’s Hamlet.  

The action takes place mainly ‘in the wings’ of the Bard’s greatest work, with brief appearances of major characters from Hamlet who enact fragments of the original’s scenes.  Always willing to explore the more challenging plays, Arena Theatre boasts Sir Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies, Wolf Hall) and playwright, Jez Butterworth  (Jerusalem, The Ferryman, Mojo) as two of their Patrons.
