FILM NIGHT - The Art of Catching Lobsters : 7:45 for 8:15pm

The third in our series of documentary films by Jane Darke.

After Nick Darke’s death from cancer Jane made another documentary film about their life together and her grief, The Art Of Catching Lobsters. First broadcast in 2007 on BBC4 it is an extraordinary and poignant film.
Shot entirely on the beautiful, rugged North Cornish coast, the film chronicles the life of Jane’s husband Nick as Playwright, fisherman, and beachcomber. After suffering a stroke Nick is unexpectedly diagnosed with cancer. The film captures his efforts to pass on his knowledge and experience to his sons by teaching them the art of catching lobsters.

The Art of Catching Lobsters is a moving portrayal of loss, grief and hope. Nick was a man with a great sense of fun, who planned his life by the tides. This intimate journey details how he copes with rehabilitation after a stroke and the shock of cancer diagnosis.
Film-maker Jane Darke uniquely captures pain, suffering and death in an honest account of how a Nick works through his last weeks and she copes after his death. And how, through their son Henry, she witnesses the gift Nick has given them both.

Jane said of her intention: “I wanted to make a film about the playwright Nick Darke because he was a man from a different time, a passionate, talented, generous, wise, beautiful man and because I loved him. The Art of Catching Lobsters is about love and loss, it’s a celebration of life.”
The Art of Catching Lobsters was broadcast on September 27th 2008 on BBC 4 and travelled the festival circuit thereafter.

EXHIBITION: Times and Tides : 10am - 4pm

Free entry

An exhibition of photography by Antony Lee.

“In my photography I try to capture the mood of a scene rather than capture the sharpest image possible ... like a memory remembered. I love the old black and white photographs taken throughout history. They are often not the most technically perfect images but they tell a story and convey emotion. This is what I'm trying to reproduce in my pieces. I only shoot manual and use vintage lenses as they produce a character and a unique vintage colour cast modern equipment just can't match. I hope my work will be inspirational to others”.

THE ACHIEVERS : 8pm

The Achievers are one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed new bands on the UK Blues and Roots Music scene. The UK & European Blues press agree that The Achievers are one of the most original and exciting bands to emerge in British Blues.

The highly dynamic and unique 5-piece band from Gloucestershire are injecting a fresh sense of excitement and creativity into trusted Blues traditions. Some call it Rhythm & Blues, some call it Roots, some call it 'Dance Floor Gospel' but whatever it is, The Achievers have been leaving festival and blues club audiences across the UK & Europe elated and wanting more. Layered with four-part harmonies, joyful melodies and infectious, danceable rhythms there has never been a better time to see and hear The Achievers. Their unique approach and eagerness to move away from familiar guitar-solo orientated styles prove that soul , groove and song-craft still matter in the blues.
