Welcome to the October edition of our email newsletter!

This week, we will enjoy some fringe comedy, as the Just Us League squeeze (almost) all the MARVEL movies into an action-packed evening of laughs on Friday 1 October.
Look out for more comedy later in the month from the Mock Tudor Comedy Club, and Tom Binns, Psychic Comedium!

This month is also full of music with several classical concerts, jazz & beer gigs, the first Walton Folk concert of the year, and a musical poetry performance. Plenty of options for a cosy autumn evening out!

At the end of the month, we have some perfectly spooky theatre as the Bart Lee Theatre Company presents Candlelit Macbeth! They will bring the Shakespearean classic to life with poetry, sound-scapes, shadows, and movement on Friday 29 and Saturday 30 October.

Read on for details of these events and of our gallery exhibitions, and check our website for more - we look forward to seeing you soon!

MARVELus: All the MARVEL Movies…
Kind Of

The Just Us League presents:
MARVELus: All the MARVEL Movies…Kind Of
Squeezing (almost) all the MARVEL movies into an action-packed evening of laughs, their short punchy sketches and high-energy style will delight the whole spectrum of MARVEL fans; from those that have seen just one movie to mega-aficionados who know the franchise inside out.
It’s weapons-free comedy that takes no prisoners!

Simon Watterton - Beethoven Cycle

'Read The Tempest' was Beethoven's advice to those seeking further nourishment from his D Minor sonata, op.31 no.2. But there's more to it than the stormy darkness of the first movement - the slow movement catches him at his most reflective and profound.

Also in the programme, the C Minor sonata op.10 no.1 and the gorgeous, Schubert-like late sonata op.78. And to finish, the great op.110, one of the trilogy of final sonatas as we near the end of the cycle.

Dan Walsh - Walton Folk

Describing what Dan does is no easy task, but at the heart of it, it is British, Irish and American folk music delivered with a healthy dose of funky grooves – all performed with his unique and dazzling take on clawhammer style banjo - helping to challenge all preconceptions about the instrument.

Exhibition - Moments in Time

The feeling of continuation and the subtle changes that occur over moments in time is the basis of this recent body of work from Sarah Simonds-Gooding.

It could be the more obvious moments in time like the continual, subtle changes of the movement of water ebbing and flowing, the changes to a skyline at different times throughout a day, or the patterns created as you walk through a wood.
