The Bavard Bar  

The Bavard Bar. "A delightful blend of TED, comedy and Radio 4. Sort of."

Three passionate speakers. Three distinct passions. From meteorites to crop circles, circuit-bending to the James Bond theme on Kazoo, you never know what you're going to hear as passions are kept secret until the night.

Interspersed with nonsense including the KP Lite, Oojah Kappivvy and Bohemia Road, plus brand new feature 'Make it Stop’. With music from Piano Man Dan playing songs themed around the night's passions, bav-artistry from Maria O’Neill, and all hosted by MC Tim B'vard.

The Bavard Bar. "Avoiding life’s questions to give you the answers."

2412- Good Luck to you, Leo Grande - Photo Nick Wall.jpg

Good Luck to You, Leo Grande 
UK 2022, 15, 97 mins, drama, sex comedy

A 2022 British sex comedy-drama directed by Sophie Hyde and written by Katy Brand. The film stars Emma Thompson and Daryl McCormack.

‘A tart and tender probe into sex and intimacy, power dynamics and human connection. Thompson is terrifically agile with the script’s zingers and revelations. A relative newcomer, McCormack moves between wit, compassion and vulnerability with grace’ The New York Times

’For all its low-key intimacy and emotional realism, this movie knows it's selling a fantasy of its own. But it's hard not to warm to that fantasy, or to embrace its still-rare vision of a woman learning to articulate and satisfy her most human impulses’ Los Angeles Times

The Gold Machine

UK 2022, 93 mins, documentary, road movie

+ Q&A with Iain Sinclair & Grant Gee 

The Gold Machine


Written by  Iain Sinclair and Grant Gee, directed by Grant Gee, produced by  Janine Marmot.


A creative collaboration with Ashéninka producer Gregorio Santos Perez and British writer Iain Sinclair.


Accompanied by his daughter Farne and  British film maker Grant Gee and a local  translator,  Sinclair's  aim was to  reconstruct his great-grandfather Arthur’s  journey through Peru in the heyday of Victorian exploration. In 1891 Arthur Sinclair, a Scottish botanist  went to Peru to survey its vast  land with a view to turning it over for coffee cultivation.

 

Ian Sinclair's own journey resulted in a range of artistic responses including a documentary and book with the same name. 


Their journeys flip between continents and centuries as the narrative is wrested by the Asheninka people, to produce an original mediation — part documentary, part fiction — on fate, family and the search for Eldorado.

Eiffel
France 2022, 15, 115 mins, drama, romance

Having just finished working on the Statue of Liberty, engineer Gustave Eiffel is at the peak of his career. However, everything changes when he crosses paths with a mysterious woman from his past and their forbidden relationship inspires him to change the Paris skyline forever. Starring BAFTA nominee Emma Mackey and Roman Duris.

‘Gustave Eiffel, who gave France its famous tower, has long been portrayed as a man of nuts and bolts, a brilliant structural engineer and the architect of iron. A new film  paints a rather different, softer picture of Eiffel as a hopeless romantic whose eponymous monument was as much a landmark to love as a triumph of engineering’ The Guardian

An American Paradise

Jack Parlett in conversation with Michael O'Rourke discuss Jack's book  about Fire Island, a slim strip of land off the coast of New York, and a place of hedonism, reinvention, liberation. Arriving on the island after a break-up back home in England, scholar and poet Jack Parlett was beguiled by what he found. Here were the dazzling beaches where couples had fallen in and out of love, free for a sun-kissed moment to be themselves in the time before gay liberation.

 

Tracing Fire Island’s rich history, Parlett leads the reader from the early days of the island’s life into a present where a host of new challenges threaten the island’s future.

Ancestry. Simon Mawer in conversation with Cole Moreton

The past is another country and we are all its exiles. Banished forever, we look back in fascination and wonder at this mysterious land. Who were the people who populated it?

 

Simon Mawer’s compelling and original novel puts flesh on our ancestors’ bones to bring them to life and give them voice. He has created stories that are gripping and heart-breaking, from the squalor and vitality of Dickensian London to the excitement of seafaring in the last days of sail and the horror of the trenches of the Crimea. There is birth and death; there is love, both open and legal but also hidden and illicit. Yet the thread that connects these disparate figures is something that they cannot have known – the unbreakable bond of family. 

 

Simon will be in conversation with journalist, novelist and broadcaster Cole Moreton.

Barb Jungr: Dylan & Cohen & Love - Forgetful Heart

Musician, writer, composer and lyricist Barb Jungr has been critically lauded for her insightful and passionate interpretive style, described as 'revelatory' by the New York Times. Her deconstruction/reconstruction of popular songs and unusual and beautiful musical arrangements are characteristics that allow the listener new insights into familiar music. In recent years, Jungr has brought her singular talents to the songbooks of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Nina Simone, Jacques Brel, and more, creating the genre of the New American Songbook.

 

'Brings the same creativity for reinterpretation and re-examination that Ella Fitzgerald brought to Cole Porter' Wall Street Journal

 

With Forgetful Heart, Barb continues her love affair with the work of two of the most important songwriters of the 20th Century. Through the lockdown, she thought about love, and in particular the love songs of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen, from their earliest explorations to their most recent recordings.


Working with her longstanding collaborator Jenny Carr, Barb will include Forgetful Heart, What Happens To The Heart, If You Gotta Go, Go Now, I’ve Made Up My Mind To Give Myself To You and So Long Marianne, among more treasures.
