Romeo and Juliet

Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers encounter passion and tragedy

in Kenneth Macmillan's 20th Century ballet masterpiece

Shakespeare’s enduring love story is known the world over. Since its 1965 premiere with The Royal Ballet, Kenneth MacMillan’s Romeo and Juliet has become a modern ballet classic. The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end. Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.

Music The Ollie West Band
Friday 14 June7.30pm


The Ollie West Band

Cinematic, orchestral pop is a phrase not used frequently by bands to describe their sound, yet for

The Ollie West Band this fits perfectly.

Formed by 21 year old singer, songwriter and pianist Ollie West, originally from Guildford, this Manchester based ensemble is creating unique music that transcends genre and the generic ideas of the pop band. With influences as far spread as Elbow and Billy Joel to the Cinematic Orchestra to Claude Debussy, the combination of Ollie, Ashley Garrod on Bass, Pete Leaver on Drums, James Cooke on Guitar and a plethora of classically trained musicians from the Royal Northern College of Music create an instantly recognizable sound has been praised by the likes of Neil McCormick and Dean Friedman.

Following a major UK tour in 2018, the band signed to Northern Quarter Records and have been back in the studio recording, mixing and mastering their debut 9 track album, "Time Stood Still". The first single from this, ‘Home’, was released to much critical acclaim on the 12th October, Following the release of the album the band hit the road once again for a huge 16 date UK tour across June and July, and can't wait to return to the Ucheldre Centre on Friday 14th June 2019."

The Poet of the Piano

                                     Nocturnes and Waltzes – Frédéric Chopin and Friends

Fourth and last in this series of Piano recitals, Iwan brings us

Chopin – The Poet of the Piano

Iwan Llewelyn-Jones returns to the Ucheldre Centre to perform four recitals that explore the captivating piano music of Frédéric Chopin, and specifically the Nocturnes and Waltzes, timeless masterpieces brimming with beguiling charm and sparkling wit.

Each recital highlighting the influences brought to bear on Chopin by his predecessors with works by Bach, Mozart, and the composer credited with giving birth to the Nocturne, John Field. Conversely, the ways in which Chopin’s ground-breaking pianistic style shaped the music of future generations is reflected in performances of piano works from across the globe: Fauré, Ravel and Debussy (France), Schumann (Germany), Grieg (Norway), Liszt (Hungary), Paderewski (Poland) and Rachmaninov (Russia), together with Britten (Great Britain), Liebermann (USA) and Sculthorpe (Australia).
