She’Koyokh & Jyotsna Srikanth: Bangalore, Balkans and Bagels
“The UK’s finest klezmer & Balkan band” (Evening Standard) team up with Europe’s foremost South Indian violinist, “a major instrumentalist of vision and imagination” (ROOTS), for a unique collaboration inspired by the musical traditions connecting India and Europe.
Through their own distinct musical languages, eight musicians create a caravan of sounds spiced with soulful Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jewish melodies, Gypsy themes, South Indian rhythms, Carnatic improvisation and original compositions.
Hailing from Bangalore, Jyotsna is Europe’s foremost Indian violinist. Her music illuminates the Carnatic musical tradition from South India. Jyotsna’s musical tutelage began at home guided by her mother, Ratna Srikantiah, a Carnatic vocalist and teacher. She later trained under R.R. Keshavamurthy and V.S. Narasimhan, making her professional debut at the age of nine. Jyotsna went on to have successful career in the film industry, playing on over two hundred South Indian cinematic soundtracks.

The popular star of TV’s Street Psychic, Psychic Private Eyes and Psychic Academy, Tony Stockwell has a long established credibility as one of the top Intuitive Mediums and has shared the stage all round the world with international mediums such as Colin Fry, James van Praagh and Lisa Williams. Tony demonstrates his belief that those who have passed can communicate with their loved ones with detailed messages frequently including names, dates and locations and all delivered with emotion, sensitivity and empathy. The evening may include psychometry, photographs readings and psychic prediction.
Recent legislative guidelines insist that any Evening of Mediumship should be billed ‘for entertainment purposes’. Tony certainly uses his natural wit, showmanship and Cockney charisma to entertain but more important, Mediumship has the potential to change someone’s life and instil in them a sense of peace, comfort and purpose. We hope that nobody can fail to come away untouched by the experience.

BRISTOL OLD VIC THEATRE SCHOOL PRESENT FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD
By Thomas Hardy, Adapted by Mark Healy
Based on the literary classic by Thomas Hardy, Far from the Madding Crowd is the story of Bathsheba Everdene. Having inherited her father’s farm, Bathsheba finds herself playing mistress in a man’s world. She is pursued by three very different suitors: Gabriel Oak, a sheep farmer, captivated by her fetching wilfulness; the handsome and reckless Sergeant Troy; and William Boldwood, a prosperous and obsessive landowner. But are any of them a match for the independent and spirited Bathsheba?
This amateur production of Thomas Hardy’s ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’ has been adapted by Nick Healy and is presented by special arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
