Track Dogs @ ACE Space
Feb 15 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm

Track Dogs

Track Dogs have been barnstorming the UK with some major festival appearances and collaborations. It has been a pivotal year including playing to a heaving, rocking Trafalgar Square and surprise on-stage participation of Show of Hands’ Steve Knightley and Seth Lakeman at Shrewsbury Folk Festival. Well-established in Spain where they are based, they are surprising UK music lovers with “Sun-shiny songs thriving on dark themes behind irresistible rhythms.”

The four international “madrileños” (Garrett Wall, Dave Mooney, Howard Brown & Robbie K. Jones) whose artistic name derives from the dark subterranean world of New York’s subway system, present Fire On The Rails, a kicking album that grows on the work that has opened so many doors for the band. If they are still new to you, check out previous releases Kansas City Out Groove and Uke Songs By Track Dogs and see why they are so hard to pigeonhole.

Maia Hendrickx and Calum Roy are both well known individually to regulars of ACE Space’s monthly open mic night, Unplugged. At May’s Unplugged in 2018 they appeared as duo and went down a storm. Since then they appeared at the one day mini-festival ACE Space @ Shaw House, 2018, where they were certainly a hit. Having previously worked together in various bands, they decided to write and perform their own music as a duo and have been combining a love of Americana, Indie and Folk with lush harmonies ever since. This is a case where the sum is greater than the individual part – a great example of synergy.

Outdoor Theatre: Romeo and Juliet @ Shaw House
Jul 26 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Outdoor Theatre: Romeo and Juliet @ Shaw House | Newbury | England | United Kingdom

Outdoor Theatre: Romeo and Juliet

Multi-award nominated Immersion Theatre proudly presents an unforgettable adaptation of William Shakespeare’s iconic, Romeo & Juliet.

Following last year’s hugely successful production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, this powerful story of forbidden love and bitter rivalry is brought to life in a visual spectacle infused with comedy, heart-break, and danger.

Moving, funny, and tragic in equal measure, this beautiful production will see Immersion continue to build on their reputation for producing Shakespeare for all, be it the seasoned theatre-goer or budding literary enthusiast. This is Shakespeare as it’s meant to be: interactive, fun, and highly accessible!

“This is the funniest, freshest telling of an often tiredly told tale you’re likely to see for years…packs a mighty punch…Immersion provides a masterclass for theatre companies looking to update these classic stories for new audiences”
