Red Hippo is -
Individually, they have paid their dues in the worlds of jazz, folk, world music and ska. Together they explore a musical world influenced by traditional English, Irish and
Scandinavian folk melodies and original tunes often underpinned with “posh jazz chords”.
It's exciting music to get you moving. It's going to be a great fun night.
Presented by Hyde Festival Theatre Company

Two people, a man and a woman, meet on a bench in a park near the sea. It could be anywhere. The man sells the most humiliating item of uselessness that he could find to foist on to the public . . . space. He sells space in one of those cheap magazines that nobody has ever heard of. He tries to give himself to the woman, who quickly realises the void within him but not altogether void. It's filled with the debris of expected performance, vanity, shallowness and sexual exploitation.
Through their mutual catharsis the man learns how easy it is to be honest and reveal himself.
Directed by Peter Wright and starring Adam Urey & Susie Milne

The inaugural meeting of The Village Cinema will be a screening of the first episode (or three!) of Queer as Folk. I know, it's not strictly speaking a film but it seemed so perfect!
There will be a one-off membership fee of £1, and we're asking for a donation of between £1 - £3 for the film.
Much of Barry Stockton’s earlier paintings were inspired by the 9 years he spent living in the Scottish Highlands and by the dramatic landscapes and unique magical light found there. Even today his work frequently reflects some of those elements of wild windswept places. Most of his paintings have a story behind them.... although sometimes they are just inspired by life itself....
In his exhibition ‘Men & Mountains’ held in Bury Art gallery in 1995 the male figures were referred to as landscapes of the nude with titles such as ‘Hope‘, ‘Another Scream’, ‘Despair’ and ‘Grief’, being a personal response to his work with people affected by HIV.
That particular exhibition was comprised of 65 paintings of landscapes and figures and was deemed by the then curator as the most successful exhibition to be held there in a ten year period.
His work has sold continuously over the last 40 years and can be seen in collections world wide ranging from Australia to Florida, South Africa to British Columbia, France, Spain and throughout the British Isles.
Although Barry had no formal art training he has painted since he was old enough to hold a paintbrush.... roughly from the age of 4... The paintings on show here are a small example of the vast range of hundreds of pictures created over a lifetime of passionate expression.
We hope you enjoy looking at them.
