A Space at the Table (TBC)

A Space at the Table

'Local filmmaker, Hexham resident and citizen journalist Peter Woods runs Hexham's local online TV station Hexhamtv. Hexhamtv can be found on Facebook and Twitter. In 2018 Peter was selected by the Great Exhibition of the North to produce a digital art project reflecting the Great Exhibition. Peter produced an augmented reality installation featuring the passage of the Salmon up the River Tyne at Hexham. Peter's work can still be found in front of the Boat House on Tyne Green, Hexham.

During research for the Great Exhibition project Peter met Paula Turner who runs The Curiosity Cafe, part of an arts project at Dry Water Arts, Amble, Northumberland https://www.drywaterarts.uk Paula and her cofounder at Dry Water Arts Frances support a group of people living with Dementia and their partners. Peter suggested that he make a film to highlight what it is like to be a carer for your partner who has Dementia. After working with Paula, Frances and the group members Peter made this film using his iphone. It is called 'A Space at the Table' because the space at the table that the person living with Dementia would normally fill is gradually fading away with far reaching implications for each person living with Dementia and their also for their partners.

The film which lasts for 1 hour 16 minutes is very personal and powerful and comes with a warning that it is not suitable to be shown to those living with Dementia, those under 16 or to people who may be adversely affected by seeing it's contents

With the kind support of Tynedale Dementia Action Group and The Forum Cinema, Hexham, Peter's film is now being shown during Dementia Action Week 2019  to highlight the honest and truthful experience of carers of partners living with dementia in Northumberland..

In the future Peter hopes the film will be shown widely so Health professionals and to a wider audience so the needs of cares in this situation can be properly understood.

Anyone wanting to use Peter's film within their own organisation  can be sent a copy provided that they make a suitable donation to the work of Dry Water Arts and The Curiosity Cafe.

Royal Ballet: Flight Pattern Triple Bill


The contemporary face of The Royal Ballet is shown in works from three of today’s leading choreographers. Christopher Wheeldon’s Within the Golden Hour is based around seven couples separating and intermingling, to music by Vivaldi and Bosso and lit with rich colours suggested by sunset. Crystal Pite’s Flight Pattern, revived for the first time, uses a large dance ensemble and Górecki’s familiar music from his Symphony of Sorrowful Songs for a poignant and passionate reflection on migration. Between them, a new work by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, created on The Royal Ballet has its premiere to bring the contemporary truly up-to-date.

The choreography captures the emotions of the young couple as they fall in love, despite the barriers that finally bring about the story’s tragic end. Each revival gives opportunities for new dancers to interpret the doomed lovers. The whole Company brings the colour and action of Renaissance Verona, where a busy market all too quickly bursts into sword fighting, and a family feud leads to tragedy for both the Montagues and Capulets.

There are many versions of the story of Faust, who trades his soul with the Devil for youth and power, but Gounod’s opera remains one of the most constantly enthralling. Michael Fabiano stars as Faust, with Diana Damrau as his beloved Marguerite and Erwin Schrott as the diabolical Méphistophélès. Virtuoso leading roles, a large chorus, sensational sets, ballet and an ecstatic finale make this the epitome of theatrical spectacle – the lavish scale of French grand opera is wonderfully in evidence in this production by David McVicar, set in 1870s Paris. Above all, the music includes several of popular opera’s most recognizable numbers, performed by a cast of great international singers and the Royal Opera Chorus.

British adventurer Chris Lucas and his actor father Niall, depend on each other for survival, as they canoe down one of the most remote rivers in Canada.

The Yukon Assignment is a breathtaking exploration of one of the Earth’s last wildernesses and the story of how adventure can bring us together, irrespective of age.

Gentle in nature, this is a story of authentic adventure and relationship between son and father. The passing of time and changing relationships we have with our parents and children is fundamental to the human experience. So often in modern life, we make no time to simply experience this, plans are put off, excuses are made, opportunities passed. This film is the antithesis of this lament, inspiring audiences to take action, to seize the opportunity to make time for the important relationships in their life, to embrace the unknown, and to strike out on their own adventures.

A feel good story of country music set in Glasgow, Wild Rose is a real British discovery. Jessie Buckley, following her breakout role in Beast, plays Rose-Lynn, who we meet as she is released from prison back to her Glasgow home. Feisty to a fault, she dreams of Nashville, but with two small children and an ankle bracelet, it’s a distant possibility.

Showing a healthy amount of grit and with toe-tapping original songs, this spirited tale of country music (“three chords and the truth” as Rose-Lynn’s tattoo puts it) is a heartfelt Scottish treat.
