Feb 2nd Fri Grammy winner Amy Wadge in concert Stogumber Village Hall, 7:30pm
Grammy winner, Amy Wadge, is one of the UK's most prolific contemporary singer/songwriters. Over the last decade she has worked with top names such as James Blunt, Ms Dynamite, The Shires, LeAnn Rimes and Rebecca Ferguson as well as a score of up and coming musical talent. Her most noticeable success to date, however, comes from her long established writing partnership with Ed Sheeran which led to them winning "Song of the Year" for Thinking Out Loud (and Ed also won "Best Performer" for singing the track) in Los Angeles in February 2016. It is an exceptional privilege that Amy has agreed to play in Stogumber! It will be an evening of Pop, Soul and Blues and is also a double-header because joining Amy on stage will be Luke Jackson. Luke is an awarding-winning folk artist who has played with the likes of Show of Hands, Seth Lakeman and the Oysterband, as well as performing his own gigs throughout the UK

Mar 3rd Sat Two plays by Noel Coward - Red Peppers and Still Life Tacchi Morris Arts Centre - Monkton Heathfield
Doors open 6:45pm. Curtain up 7:30pm
Red Peppers - directed by Mike Leach. A lovingly cynical tribute to the music hall, "Red Peppers" features a performing couple whose onstage choreography and off-stage marriage leave something to be desired. Lily and George are still doing the same venerable routine of lamely comic songs and hackneyed patter that George's parents were doing before them, and as they change out of their sailor costumes after a disastrous performance, they snap and scrap in a comic but sympathetic picture of variety show life Still Life - directed by David Northey Laura and Alec become acquainted in the refreshment room of a railway station. Although both are quite content in their marriages, they fall in love and embark on a brief, passionate affair. Riddled with guilt, they know they must stop seeing each other. Their final parting, at the railway station where they met, is marred by the intrusiveness of a talkative acquaintance. The play was adapted by Coward for the film Brief Encounter (1945).
