Winter 2017/18

Details of some of the concerts and films in winter 2017/8 are now posted below - scroll down to reveal.  All films will be £5 entry (one price) and all will have subtitles in English as a policy for this season – even those shot in English. This is to give access to those with some hearing loss and to a sizeable minority in our audience who have English as a second language. But of course we encourage those of you with normal hearing to attend and support this inclusive plan. If you have feedback about this experiment let us know uhallpromo@gmail.com  More details will appear soon of the 2018 season of concerts and public events which start in February 2018. Details of the highly recommended Rich Hall gig are already listed.

Indigenous People (music and dance) Fri. 1st Sept, 8pm

Friday, September 1, 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Indigenous People is the collective name for the Kakatsitsi Master Drummers from the Ga tribe of Southern Ghana and The !Gubi Family of San ‘Bushmen’ from the Namibian Kalahari. Fresh from a main stage appearance at WOMAD this is a rare opportunity to see authentic Dance, Drumming and Song performed. The traditional drumming dance grooves from one of Africa’s leading percussion ensembles are combined with acoustic instruments and chants from the San people of the Kalahari desert in their healing trance dance ceremonies. These accompany a dance performance which fuses elements from the two participating traditions. Entrancing and enlightening… The Friday performance is not participatory and will focus on watching the drummers, dancers and singers perform, with narration, to explain the social and cultural context of the music, song and dance.

£14/£12 concs/£10 U16s
