The Hayes Sisters

8 pm

Doors open at 7.30

£8 on the door

£6 advance (from Glossop Labour Club)


A welcome return, by popular request,  for the Hayes Sisters, following their acclaimed visit with the Folk Train last year.

The Hayes Sisters, Cathryn, Angela and Jennifer, after a promising start as a teenage trio, performing in local pubs and clubs. grew up, pursuing careers in different cities, in different fields; in teaching, nursing, and acting (you may have seen Jen (Stage name Jennifer Hennessy) in The Office, Coronation Street, Doctor Who, and lots more; in fact, she appears soon as Mrs Cratchit in the BBC’s new epic serial, “Dickensian”). Now they’re back together on stage; appearing at festivals and gigs across the North West. Their songs come from personal experiences and emotions, influenced by the traditional music of England and Ireland. Each tends to write individually, and they arrange collaboratively; and, as they are musically untrained; intuitively. Naturally, The Hayes Sisters seem to be in harmony about most things in life…

Bea and Nancy's 2-part harmony singing always goes down very well.

Sunday 6 May

Red Film Club

Mustang


When five orphan girls are seen innocently playing with boys on a beach, their scandalized conservative guardians confine them while forced marriages are arranged. Set in a village in northern Turkey, Mustang wrestles with many issues - friendship, expressions of love, family obligation and cultural ties. It is a beautiful, poignant, and very powerful film.


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.


Further films:


June 3: City of God (2002)
