Thursday 24 May

Folk Train: Steve Turner

CANCELLED


We were disappointed last year when Steve was unable to come (due to a cricketing injury!), so we are glad that he is now coming (we hope!).

***We hoped, but it was not to be! Due to the rail strike, it has to be cancelled. The Club will be open as usual, so come and celebrate Bob's birthday.

Steve is a pioneer in accompanying his singing with the English concertina, stretching the boundaries of what can be achieved with this instrument. He also accompanies himself on the cittern (if you don't know what that is, come and find out).

Leaving Piccadilly at 18.46, arriving at the Club about 19.30. Returning to Manchester on the 21.38 train.

June 28: The Hayes Sisters

Sunday 3 June

Red Film Club

City of God


This electrifying picture, made in 2002, is part tender coming-of-age film and part gang-warfare epic from the Brazilian slum, or favela, told from the viewpoint of the children who manage to be both its underclass and its criminal overlords.
The intense focus on the favela stresses the connection between the oppressive confines of the community and the chaotic, individualistic lives of the gun-toting gangsters.

This film will be shown with subtitles.


The bar will be open from 7 pm, and the programme starts at 7.30.

Admission free; donations welcome.

Members only, but you can join at the door.
