Theale Film Club this Sunday

“Stan & Ollie”

Sunday 22 September – doors open 6:30 for7pm start

Stan Laurel & Oliver (“Babe”) Harvey – two of the world’s best know & loved film comedians faced an uncertain existence in the twilight of their film & stage career.  They’d been massively successful in the 1930’s and early ’40s but now in the early 1950’s it’s much more difficult for them.
Now,  in 1953 they attempt to reignite their film careers as they embark on what becomes their swan song – a grueling theatre tour of post-war Britain,  with the promise of a film deal if they are successful.

What happens as they embark on this tour and the events surrounding it are sad, heartwarming, incredibly funny and very poignant.  And it all makes this a very endearing film you should come and see – ideal Sunday evening entertainment.

Steve Coogan as Stan and John C. Reilly as Ollie are just magnificent; they become Stan & Ollie without the merest hint of caricature and are perfectly cast.  Rufus Jones as the impresario Bernard Delfont is also up to the task – just what you’d expect a duplicitous, smarmy impresario to be like.

A great Sunday evening entertainment complete with free popcorn and cheap ice-creams.  Bring your own booze, sit back and enjoy!

As always it’s free to members or you can buy temporary 1 showing membership for £4 per person

Pete Stearn & James Slater come together for an evening of Country and Blues!

This will be a splendid and entertaining evening…whilst Pete and James are excellent solo performers, well known around Bristol and the West Country, they work splendidly together.

They perform a variety of contemporary and traditional blues & country music… many with choruses. They also write much of their own material

Springtime Green Man – a lovely evening!

Many thanks to all of you who came along to the Theale “Green Man” on Saturday 11th May.  A delightful evening in Dave & Ann Bodley’s Orchard & the Village Hall was made even better for raising £50 towards the Moonwalk Breast Cancer event.

Many thanks to Bill & Cathy Woodroffe, Shaun Thorogood and many others who made this event such a success!
