Benediction: Decorated for bravery during World War One, British soldier Siegfried Sassoon (Peter Capaldi) becomes a vocal critic of the government’s continuation of the war.

Adored by the aristocracy and London’s literary and theatrical stars, Sassoon’s experiences inspire him to write

poetry about the horrors

of battle.

Local culture vultures will enjoy seeing Lia Williams, who appeared on the Stephen Joseph stage in 1990 in Body Language, portrays Edith Sitwell, the poet who once had a summer home in the town’s Woodend.

a-ha: The Movie (film – Norwegian and German with English subtitles):

Take On Me reached number 1 on Billboard in the US in 1985. Nearly 40 years later, a-ha still create magic on stage with their melancholic and timeless music.

They tour the world but drive in separate cars and stay apart backstage: they only meet on stage.The film portrays the challenging creative and personal dynamics of a group of three strong individuals.

This is a story of great music, big ambitions, broken friendship – and maybe forgiveness.

Friday 10 June at 7pm; Saturday 11 June at 2pm.
