Saturday 23 March

The Greyhounds

8 pm. Doors open 7.30 pm

Tickets £8; £6 advance booking

Fragile and fluid, The Greyhounds recharge the youthful immediacy of traditional music, lending much renewal to the narrative content of folk songs as to the melodies themselves.

John Ellis on piano, Sarah Dale on cello and Ian Fletcher on guitar bring seasoned calibre and unexpected texture to the mix, whilst maintaining an intuitive balance with Sonya Moorhead’s honest and expressive vocals.

The Greyhounds original setlist explores Anne Briggs’ original and iconic recordings and endeavours to honour the impact of this momentous catalogue and the traditional songs she revived during her early career.

(I saw this group a few months ago in Todmorden, and knew straight away that we must have them at the Labour Club! If you like folk songs - indeed if you like good songs of any sort - you will enjoy this. To find out more, visit Sonya's website


Sunday 7 April

Red Film Club

Walkabout (1971)

A British-Australian New Wave film directed by Nicolas Roeg. Two young white children stumble upon an adolescent Aborigine who is performing a "walkabout." In this ritualistic six-month journey, the boy must learn to survive by himself in the imposing desert. Communication is a problem, although more for the girl than for her little brother, who still has a child's ability to communicate simply and directly. ‘Best Australian movie ever’; ‘haunting classic of cultural dislocation’, ‘A work of striking atmospheric contrasts’.

The film lasts 95 minutes, and will be shown with subtitles.

Admission is free; donations welcome. Members only, but you can join at the door.

The bar will open at 7 pm, and the film starts at 7.30.

Future Programme:

May 5: Gentleman's Agreement (1947)
June 2: PadMan (2018)
