White Riot (2019)


Rubika Shah charts a vital London protest movement. Rock Against Racism (RAR) was formed in 1976, prompted by 'music's biggest colonialist' Eric Clapton and his support of MP Enoch Powell. As neo-Nazis recruited the nation's youth, RAR's multicultural punk and reggae gigs provided rallying points for resistance.

With subtitles. 80 minutes

Bar opens 7.00; film starts at 7.30

Saturday June 11
Geoff Lakeman
8 pm (doors open 7.30)
£8 (advance); £10 on the door

Geoff Lakeman has been described as “a stalwart of the west country folk scene and the father of a virtual folk dynasty.” He is the dad of Seth, Sean and Sam Lakeman, all internationally renowned performers. They began playing as children in a family band with Geoff and their violinist mum, Joy, which inspired their sons’ passion for music.

 

Geoff is a leading exponent of the rare Crane Duet concertina. He performs self-written and west country songs, English, Irish and Scottish folk, and a variety of other music, including playing 20s and 30s jazz on an authentic 1920s instrument.
