Fringe Benefits… Friday 12 & Saturday 13 February 2016
St George’s Bristol is delighted to be part of ‘The Fringe’, supported by BBC Radio 6Music Festival, playing host to two fantastic events during the Festival weekend. If you’d like to know more about ‘The Fringe’ visit the BBC Radio 6Music website. You can view the entire programme for the weekend HERE.
Featuring Jarvis Cocker and members of The British Paraorchestra, this unmissable gig is a ‘Supermarionation Celebration’ as conductor/presenter Charles Hazlewood tips his hat to the legendary composer Barry Gray and the immortal music he composed for Gerry Anderson’s miniature epics. From Thunderbirds to Captain Scarlett, via Stingray, Supercar, Joe 90 and Space: 1999, it’s a whistle-stop tour of some of the small screen’s most beloved themes and characters. This is National Treasure music, brought back to life like never before by Hazlewood’s All Stars, and featuring Jarvis Cocker – the perfect partner in delivering the songs which lie at the heart of Gray’s creations: brilliant, stylish, edgy and ironic little tunes which, once lodged in your head, do not leave easily.
St George’s Bristol and Bristol Women in Music have combined forces for Women in Music: Inspire – a FREE afternoon of guest speakers and industry networking. The event will focus on inspiring stories from key female figures within the music industry as well as offering guidance for the next generation of women leaders. Guest speakers include Lady Nade and DJ Queen Bee, plus Sarah Bland (DHP), Tre Stead (Tour Manager for Frank Turner), Eva Greene (Black Acre), Laura Lewis-Paul (Saffron Records) and Ewa Strusińska(conductor). It’s a flexible event, with delegates free to attend all or part of the afternoon.
