“There is a sort of heavenly or at least more than human gaiety... which one imagines might come to oneself as the fruit of reconciliation and relief after immense suffering.” - T S Eliot
The Alberni Quartet’s acclaimed series continues with two works that show how the transformative power of music can express what it is to be human. Haydn’s folk-influenced late quartet sums up the whole genial side of his many-sided nature. The questing, fragile and endlessly touching journey of Beethoven’s op.132 inspired T S Eliot to write his own Four Quartets.

With Thomas Dunford
“The Eric Clapton of the lute...” - BBC Music Magazine
Last heard in Cedars Hall performing Dowland with Iestyn Davis, the extraordinary young French lutenist returns with solo music by Bach. Iestyn Davies says of Thomas Dunford, “When people listen to Glenn Gould playing the piano, they hear him humming in the background as if he was creating the music from scratch. Tom plays the lute like that. He plays in a very free style. It feels very improvisatory.”

8.00pm - 10.15pm Film: Some Like It Hot
Regularly voted the best film comedy of all time, Billy Wilder’s glittering masterpiece is a subversive cross-dressing farce. Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis star as two out-of-luck jazz musicians on the run from the mob. Marilyn Monroe, impossibly sultry, stars as the singer with an all-girl band. “Nobody’s perfect” is the film’s legendary parting shot, but it will help get you in the mood for the Wells Comedy Festival later in the week.

Calling shows a ‘Work in Progress’ is for wimps. When is a show not in progress anyway? Is a show ever truly ‘done’? Sure, this show is a lot closer to it’s conception than it’s conclusion but am I going to fall back on calling it a ‘work in progress’??? Absolutely not. Is it far from finished and shonky as hell? Sure. Will it be worth the ticket price? Comedy is subjective.

Limmy's Vines
Category: Comedy

Limmy is perhaps best known for BBC Scotland’s Limmy’s Show, but when that came to an end, Limmy turned to Vine. With a lot of time on his hands, he spent most of 2013 on his phone, recording 6 second video after 6 second video. When Vine came to an end, Limmy had created over an hour’s worth of nightmarish nonsense, improvised characters, and the one with the spider crawling out his mouth. Join Limmy as he introduces a screening of the Vines, followed by an audience Q&A where you can ask him how, what and why.

Yarp. It’s the Wells Comedy Festival tradition – closing the weekend once again are the Comedians Cinema Club with their chaotic, alcohol-fuelled reinterpretation of Wells’ very own ‘Hot Fuzz’.

So bring your notebooks, polish your helmets and prepare to bring the noise – here come the fuzz.

More about the Comedians Cinema Club:
The Comedians Cinema Club is a sure-fire blockbuster hit if you’re looking for a good laugh. Created by Eric Lampaert – who appears alongside regulars Will Seaward and Matthew Highton, plus a whole host of their funny friends – these movies are brash, hilarious and nothing like the originals.

The Complete Well-Tempered Clavier
“When I was a kid, I dreamt of being in a musical because I loved to sing and dance. Perhaps that’s why I’m so preoccupied with making the piano do the same. Music is mostly song and dance anyway.” – Angela Hewitt

In 2016 she embarked on an epic ‘Bach Odyssey’, playing all of his keyboard works in London, New York, Tokyo, and Ottawa. We are thrilled that she is bringing a major element of that journey to Wells, performing the complete 48 Preludes and Fugues. If you come to no other concerts this year, don’t miss these.

“Heartfelt songwriting... bridging the gap between folk, country and Fleetwood Mac.” - The Times
If you care about categories, The Guardian described Emily Barker’s music as “pop-edged alt.folk”.

Everyone will agree that this singer/songwriter blends classical, rock, country and folk influences to stunning effect.
