Music Lisa Mills
Saturday 25 July7.30pm

Lisa Mills
We can’t wait to hear the beautiful voice and guitar playing of Lisa Mills in the fantastic acoustic of Ucheldre. 

On tour to promote her new album,
I’m Changing, from her home in Alabama, Lisa has been described as “a full-throated female Otis Redding, with some Muscle Shoals soul and Nashville country touches for good measure.”

Her style defies labels, but lovers of blues, gospel, torch or R&B won’t be disappointed.  So come along and prepare to be changed in the way you hear things.

"You should check her out." 
Robert Plant

The Battle of Britain at 75


BBC Radio 2's The Battle Of Britain At 75 tells the epic story of the greatest aerial conflict of WW II.  This live cinema experience comes from the iconic wartime fighter command station, RAF Biggin Hill. 


Presenters Dermot O’Leary, Jeremy Vine and Sophie Raworth will be joined by the BBC Concert Orchestra and musicians from the Armed Forces and guest singers as they share compelling stories from the battle. 

Rare archive footage from the conflict, modern day RAF personnel, and a cast of actors will bring those stories to life as we commemorate the 75th anniversary. 

A 30 minute programme - exclusive to cinemas -  will include a close up tour of a Spitfire and veteran fighter pilots recounting their memories of the Battle Of Britain.

The Battle Of Britain At 75 comes from the producers of the multi-award winning D-Day 70 Years On.

By seeing this event here you will be supporting RAF service charities, with all profits donated to Royal Air Forces Association, Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund, and The Battle of Britain Memorial Trust.
