Cost: £12.00 / £11.00

Butterfly KissFair Pley present Butterfly Kiss, written and directed by Dave Anderson.

A Punch and Judy stall on a Scottish seaside front.

An older guy, who might be a Punch and Judy exponent, or just somebody reminiscing about a time in his life when you could see such things on a Scottish seafront?

We don't know. What we do know is that this Punch and Judy stall is a magic box, full of characters from the old guy's childhood, and perhaps from his story between then and now.

He's remembering a particular summer, 1960, when he was 15 years old. He's still a child, but is going through the kind of boy-to-man stuff we all recognise; he's already disillusioned with Elvis, for betraying his Poor-White-Trash roots, his Girl-Back-Home is going off him for an older (16-year-old) guy, and his parents have dragged him off on holiday. In 1960 the old guy remembers, all things American were cool. Eisenhower was the President ("I Like Ike!"), and luckily, in light of the Elvis disappointment, there was Ray Charles and Chuck Berry and Bobby Darin...

A message in a bottle is washed up on the beach. People have jobs, making things. There’s only one TV channel, to which only some people have access.

A look at life in the 1960s and a chance to reminisce about all that has changed over the decades.

"The show as a whole is extraordinarily moving and powerful..." ****The Scotsman

Nick Walker was born and brought up in Morecambe, Lancashire. He studied Fine Art at Lancashire Poly and Staffordshire University.

Figuration / Abstraction, Object / Image, revealing / concealing.

David McRae was born in Dumbarton. However, he now works from his studio at home in Troon. David is self-taught in his art and, although he paints, his love is drawing and using pencil in order to create moods and detail within his work. His other passion is listening to music which he constantly undertakes when painting / drawing; the lyrics of songs present influences within his work as the majority of his works are based on the images which the song lyrics present.

He now paints full-time, after teaching in South Ayrshire.

Brassed OffYou’ve all heard of Sing-Along movies screenings (we’ve done some here already!) - so to mark the 30th anniversary of the end of the miner’s strike in 1985, we’re staging our first ‘Play-Along’ movie with a special screening of Brassed Off.

Staring Tara Fitzgerald and Ewan McGregor, the film tracks the troubles faced by a colliery brass band, through the miner’s strike and the subsequent closure of their pit. The soundtrack for the original film was provided by the famous Grimethorpe Colliery Band, and the plot is indeed based on Grimethorpe's own struggles against pit closures.

The film was very positively received for its role in promoting brass bands and their music so we’re calling out to all brass players to come along and join members of one of Scotland’s top brass bands, The Kirkintilloch Band and local heroes, The Coalburn Silver Band to come along on the day and “Play Along” with some of the great music along with the film.

Tickets can either be booked for players to join in the play-along or for audience members who simply wish to come along and see the classic film on the big screen together with live music.

(Please state whether you are a player or audience member when booking)

Date: 19 September 2015
Location: Lanark Memorial Hall

Cost: £20.00

The Manfreds60s group Manfred Mann are now considered, more than ever, one of the finest and most respected bands from that era. Their numerous pop hits were R&B based with an undercurrent of jazz - a very unusual but winning combination of playing style and substance! As a result, their records have a timeless quality and, some 53 years on, The Manfreds, with original ‘front man’ Paul Jones, will be performing their hits live at Lanark Memorial Hall! The evening will include a mix of Jazz and Blues songs as well as popular songs from their best-known albums.

Paul Jones, with his unique harmonica sound, will be joined by Mike Hugg on keyboards, Tom McGuinness on lead guitar, Rob Townsend on drums, Marcus Cliffe on bass guitar and Simon Currie on saxophone/ flute. Each member is an excellent musician in their own right and will provide a full evening of entertainment...with some solo work, and a few surprise renditions of The Manfreds classic songs!
