Golden Cabinet

Live music: Young Echo Sound

Saturday 24 March 2018 7–10.30pm £16.50 advance.

Young Echo builds upon the rich heritage of their native city Bristol. Like Massive Attack, Portishead and Tricky before them, their sound and location are inseparable. A product of deeply rooted soundsystem culture, their smoky sound encompasses stoned beats, poetry, hip-hop/rap, dub, reggae, techno, dubstep etc. remoulding their influences with a new and vital energy.

A Bande a Part

Film: A Bande á Part

NEW DATE: Friday 13th April 2018
Doors open 7.30pm
£4 (£3 unwaged)

In the dreary Parisian suburb of Joinville, Brasseur and Frey take turns romancing with beautiful student Odile. When Odile mentions the big pile of cash stashed at her aunt's villa it seems like a piece of cake burglary, but of course these things rarely go as planned….

Despite being over 50 years old and rarely seen, Bande á Part remains instantly recognisable, such is director Jean Luc Goddard's influence on modern cinema.
