'Hot Fingers Trio, with Spats Langham & Emily Campbell' - 7.30pm at the Heron Theatre Beetham. 
Returning, once more, by popular demand following visits in 2015 & 2017, Tom ‘Spats’ Langham has become one of the most talked about names on the UK jazz circuit. 
With his virtuoso performances on acoustic guitar, banjo and ukulele and his ‘to die for’ vocals and easy wit he is the perfect front man for ‘The Hot Fingers Trio’ who perform an eclectic mix of vintage acoustic string music; hot jazz of 1920’s New York, sophisticated 1930’s swing, the gypsy swing of Django Reinhardt and early blues of Lonnie Johnson.
Emily Campbell is a regular addition to Hot Fingers. She began singing during her school years and continued through to post-graduate training at Trinity College of Music. She has adapted her classical background to the darker styles of jazz, and although influenced by such greats as Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald and Lee Wiley, Emily has her own unique style.
Admission: Non-members £12. Members: £10. Under18's: £5.

Pablo Picasso is one of the greatest artists of all time – and right up until his death in 1973 he was the most prolific of artists.

Lost Hearts was among the first stories the author wrote and it offers one of his most memorable villains, the predatory scholar Mr Abney. It is paired here with perhaps James’s most poignant and personal work:

'Joyce - A Celebration' - 7.30pm at the Heron Theatre Beetham.
‘May you go on keeping the flame of Joyce alive’ wrote Joyce Grenfell’s pianist William Blezard to Jane Bower after Jane had visited him at his London home. She has been doing so since Joyce’s death, and now brings this newly reworked solo show north for the first time. 
Jane does not seek to imitate the much-loved actress so much as to introduce or reawaken memories of Joyce’s remarkable skill, personality and beliefs.
“Joyce - A Celebration” shows far more of Grenfell than ‘George – don’t do that’ and includes lesser known songs and monologues, humorous and serious, along with glimpses into her varied, vibrant and faith-filled life. Admission: Non-members £12. Members: £10. Under 18's: £5
