Billy Bottle and the Multiple
Saturday 8th October @ 8pm
Following on from their critically acclaimed album, Unrecorded Beam (the poetry of Thoreau), The Multiple features Martine Waltier, Roz Harding and Billy Bottle, plus flautist Vivien Goodwin-Darke and recording artist and producer Lee Fletcher on soundscapes. Like the best art rock, they combine folk, jazz, pop and minimalism in an engaging and meaningful way.
"And Then come the Nightjars"
Tuesday 11th October @ 7.30
South Devon, 2001. Jeff is a vet with a problem. Michael is a cattle farmer who is a problem. The two men have a begrudging respect for each other and a blossoming friendship based on sharing a fag, a nip of whisky and boisterous banter.
But then the skies turn dark with the greasy smoke of hundreds of pyres as foot and mouth sweeps through the British countryside, throwing communities across the country into incredulous chaos.
and don't forget this Sunday 2nd October at 7.00pm
"Sunday Nights In at the Acorn"
FILM AND DEBATE....
Once again you can come and watch a screening and then debate the politics, the ethics, it's place in the world order or anything else that springs to mind.
The film starts at 7.00pm, this month we have "The Economics of Happiness". What makes you happy, it is certainly not materialism. Or is it? Why do we work? Why do we crave a "little bit extra?" This is a fascinating film and well worthy of viewing. And then voice your opinion.
or on the door....
The acorn is run by a dedicated bunch of volunteers, who all passionately believe in bringing quality innovative arts and entertainment to their community.
If you would like to join our friendly team of volunteers and help to support this wonderful venue, and see events for free, e-mail our administrator on firstname.lastname@example.org
Come and see what all the fuss is about, there's live entertainment waiting for your applause
