May 2021

Summerland (film) Fri 21st May, 7.30pm

Friday, May 21, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

As World War II rages across the channel, a reclusive Englishwoman opens her heart to a young evacuee after initially resolving to be rid of him. A moving journey of womanhood, love and friendship. Written and directed by Jessica Swale and starring Gemma Arterton, this is a real gem of understated poignancy; about summers as lovely as they are fraught. A tale of love lost and found, told with wit and charm, it maintains an impressive balance between realist and romantic as it slips back and forth in time. Rating: PG  Runtime: 99 mins

£7/£5 U16’s (tickets must be booked in advance online). To buy click here

Covid prevention measures will include the auditorium being set up for social distancing with a one way system.  Regarding face coverings we will follow the Scottish government guidance namely – it is mandatory to wear face coverings in cinemas, although there are exemptions for certain people and it is a reasonable excuse to remove a face covering when you need to eat and drink. If you wear a face visor/shield you are asked to also wear a face covering as a visor is not considered to offer sufficient protection. In our auditorium we don’t allow food and drink other than water so please only remove a mask if you are sipping water. If you are coming as separate bubbles please book your tickets separately. For example if you have 4 tickets in one booking we will sit you all together. Please let us know (via uhallpromo@gmail.com) if you have access issues. If necessary we can seat people on the floor area without having to negotiate steps.

October 2021

Peatbog Faeries (music) Thu 21st Oct, 2021 8pm

Thursday, October 21, 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Based on the Isle of Skye, the Peatbog Faeries bring Celtic Dance music into the 21st century by incorporating many influences which take them from traditional jigs and reels through jazz, hip hop, reggae and more. From the moment they take to the stage, the mood is set for a no-nonsense feel-good atmosphere – each number sounding like an encore itself. The Peatbogs have released seven studio albums, have played to audiences all over the world, and won the award for ‘Best Live Act’ at the prestigious Scottish Traditional Music Awards. Please note: we intend to have dancing at this event and it is quite likely to be loud. However we will follow the government Covid guidelines at that time.

Elephant Sessions (music) Thu 16th Dec 2021, 7.30pm

Thursday, December 16, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

This show has been rescheduled from June this year

Please note that the band will be playing straight-through with no interval, and at this time we do not yet know if there will be a support act. Please keep your eye on our website and we will update as and when we have the information.

Hailing from the Highlands of Scotland, Elephant Sessions exploded onto the indie folk scene to unparalleled effect with their last album “All We Have Is Now.” The band have since gone on to be finalists as Best Group at the BBC Radio 2 awards and are already winners of the 2018 Scots Trad Live Act of the Year. A truly great band to see live in an intimate venue like the Universal Hall.
