Little Women (2019)U

Writer-director Greta Gerwig has crafted a LITTLE WOMEN that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters – four young women each determined to live life on their own terms – is both timeless and timely.

Winter Festival - Friday Evening
Whalebone with Jean Atkin followed by Oli Wilson-Dickson & Dylan Fowler

Arts Alive present a Winter Festival of stories and songs – featuring artists from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Friday evening 7.00 to 9.30pm. English Folk duo Whalebone are joined by poet Jean Atkin to perform 'Understories'. ‘Understories’ is a brush with the new folklore of Shropshire. Here are urban, and rural, myths and tales just out of living memory. They are the common uncommon. Discover Shropshire’s last wolves and cloggers, its haunted roundabouts, pigs, railway lines and oak trees, not to mention the boy who burrowed under a church. ‘Understories' is a delightful, grounded and musical collection of poems that reminds us - through its brightly singing stories - how history is ravelled around memory, community and habitation: that ‘this is living, this is.’ Following 'Understories', reknowned Welsh Folk group ALAW will perform. "welsh musicians don’t come more sensitive, accomplished and exploratory than this crew” fROOTS ALAW are musicians who bring a wealth of experience to a shared passion - the traditional music of Wales. From stirring songs to driving jigs - they communicate their music with relaxed humour and a genuine affection that is truly infectious.
