No sleep till Bearwood

We’re exhausted just looking at Thimblemill Library’s November calendars. There's a calendar for adults and a calendar for children.

So much happening! What we want to know is where do they find the time to sleep!

Our highlights over November and the start of December have to be Swing Café and Radio Soop.

Get in the swing on the evening of Saturday 16th November for Thimblemill Library’s Jazz Night.

Swing Café is a stylish swing/jazz band, playing well known and well loved jazz standards from
the 1920s to the 1950s. Led by female vocalist Billie, the band is made up of talented young musicians from Birmingham’s Conservatoire Music College. Their authentic style and love of the music they play shines through every unique performance. They have played at numerous venues across the Midlands and beyond including jazz festivals.

Bearwood’s swingsters Amelia Wallace and Joe and Kim are also on the bill.

Finding themselves plunged into a live radio broadcast with acute staff shortages, a radio repertory company are forced to come up with the sound effects for three one-act plays. Can they vocalise a death-defying car chase round the coastal paths of Cornwall? Will they pull off an alien invasion using just the contents of a handbag? Can the sound of a few sandwiches conjure up a terrifying tale of terror? As off-air mishaps collide with on-air drama, you can be sure of only one thing: the Fifties will never sound the same again!

Performing three original plays inspired by the heyday of radio, four actors provide all the voices and sound effects in an affectionate pastiche of classic genres, including a tale of intrigue and espionage, gothic horror and American science fiction. Radio Soop is an hilarious theatrical event that recreates the magic, tensions, humour and chaos of live radio.

The live theatre production is on Thimblemill Library on Thursday 5th December. Tickets only £5 per person....sooper!
