Byron Jones - The Welsh Wizard - 13th June

Byron was born in 1949 in Risca, Gwent, South Wales – hence the name of The Welsh Wizard. As a child, he showed great promise on the piano, and then later on the organ. He played in a local church, and developed his style over the years. Whilst still at school, Byron played at the local chapel and then progressed to the working mens clubs of Wales when he was a teenager, accompanying many of the big stars who came to Wales in cabaret – Donald Peers, Ruby Murray and many more. He later progressed to the larger clubs, where he would be engaged to play for artistes straight from the London Palladium. Since then, over the last thirty years, Byron has played for many Summer Season Spectacular shows, made countless radio broadcasts and made many television appearances in Great Britain and America, as well as producing his own recordings on CD and DVD. Byron has his own Music Society of loyal fans and friends from all over the world.

Byron plays regularly for organ societies the length and breadth of Britain as well as at dance venues for ballroom and sequence dancing. For many years Byron has produced his own music festivals and holiday breaks, much to the delight of his devoted supporters and earning new friendships all the time.

An accomplished organist, Byron has also played most of the major theatre pipe organs in Great Britain, namely, Comptons, Christies and WurliTzers including the famous Blackpool Tower WurliTzer. He is a much-sought-after concert performer, and travels all over the country, giving concerts on many of the loved and cherished Theatre Cinema Organs that have been preserved and held in affection. He also cannot resist the temptation to sample all kinds of Church Organs when he has the opportunity.

There are hundreds of Organ Societies around the country today having guest organists in concert, and Byron is among the tops, being sought after for these events, even as far as Spain and Jersey. Running Time: 129 mins


The Globe: Antony and Cleopatra (Recorded) - 4th & 7th June

Cleopatra, the alluring and fascinatingly ambiguous Queen of Egypt, has bewitched the great Mark Antony, soldier, campaigner and now one of the three rulers of the Roman Empire. When Antony quarrels with his fellow leaders and throws in his lot with Cleopatra, his infatuation threatens to split the Empire in two. The third of our Roman Tragedies, Antony & Cleopatra picks up Antony's story many years after Julius Caesar. Virtue and vice, transcendent love and realpolitik combine in Shakespeare's greatest exploration of the conflicting claims of sex and power, all expressed in a tragic poetry of breath-taking beauty and magnificence. The Globe's 2014 envisioning of this iconic play encapsulates these themes whilst deftly threading a sense of comedy throughout, and Olivier Award-winner Eve Best's Cleopatra 'kisses the audience' (Guardian) with her 'magnetically humorous' (Evening Standard) performance. Starring: Clive Wood, Eve Best, Ignatius Anthony

Running Time: 180 mins

London Road (Live) - 9th June

National Theatre presents: London Road Live Film Premiere Hailed as a remarkable, groundbreaking work during two sell-out runs at the National Theatre, the feature film adaptation of LONDON ROAD reunites the award-winning team, with a script by Alecky Blythe and music by Adam Cork, and directed by Rufus Norris (Broken). With an ensemble cast that includes Olivia Colman, Kate Fleetwood, Anita Dobson and Tom Hardy, LONDON ROAD documents the events that shook Suffolk in 2006, when the quiet rural town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women. The residents of London Road had struggled for years with frequent soliciting and kerb-crawling on their street. The film follows the community who found themselves at the epicentre of the tragic events, and is based on interviews conducted with the road's real residents. Using their own words set to an innovative musical score, LONDON ROAD tells a moving story of ordinary people coming together during the darkest of experiences. This unmissable premiere event will feature an exclusive Q&A following the screening with the key cast and crew, broadcast live from London.

The Globe: The Comedy of Errors (Recorded)

Take one pair of estranged twin brothers (both called Antipholus), and one pair of estranged twin servants (both called Dromio), keep them in ignorance of each other and throw them into a city with a reputation for sorcery, and you have all the ingredients for theatrical chaos. One Antipholus is astonished by his foreign hospitality; the other enraged by the hostility of his home town. The Dromios, caught between the two, are soundly beaten for obeying all the wrong orders. Basing his plot on a farce by Plautus, Shakespeare caps the mayhem of his Roman original to build up a hectic tale of violent cross-purposes, furious slapstick and social nightmare. The final Globe On Screen film for 2015 brings the perfect light relief to close an epic season of war and tragedy. This sell-out production employed authentic Renaissance costumes and staging and will have cinema audiences roaring with laughter as it crams in "more hilarious anarchy than you can shake a fish, cat or identity-confused servant at." (London Theatre Guide).
