Pantani (15)

The incredible story of a cycling legend to celebrate the Tour Of Britain passing through Dorchester.

In 1998 Marco Pantani, the most flamboyant and popular cyclist of his era, won both the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia, a titanic feat of physical and mental endurance that no rider has repeated since. He was a hero to millions, the saviour of cycling following the doping scandals which threatened to destroy the sport. However, less than six years later, aged just 34, he died alone, in a cheap hotel room, from acute cocaine poisoning. He had been an addict for five years. This is the story of the tragic battles fought by the most important Italian cyclist of his generation; man versus mountain, athlete versus addiction, Marco Pantani versus himself.

The film is a must for all cycling fans, as it captures all the drama and thrilling spectacle of the sport, but is equally fascinating as a human-interest story.

The Tannahill Weavers 2024

The Tannahill Weavers 2024

Traditional Celtic music at its best! With fire-driven instrumentals and songs, haunting

ballads and a good dose of humour, the Tannahill Weavers have transformed traditional Scottish material and brought it into the modern world, vitally alive and kicking.

Members of the Scottish Traditional Music Hall of Fame, the Tannies have been joined by exciting piper and fiddle player Iain MacGillivray, who is Scotland's youngest Clan Leader. Iain, a fluent Gaelic speaker, has worked on Outlander and Men in Kilts as well as other high-profile productions.

"Formed from a Paisley pub session in 1968, seminal trailblazers the Tannahill Weavers now

also rank as national treasures." -Glasgow Celtic Connections 2018

“They’ve always been an exciting live act, but over the decades the Tannahill Weavers have acquired a degree of musical sophistication that places them among the most influential Celtic bands in history.” - Rob Weir, Sing Out Magazine

"An especially eloquent mixture of the old and the new." - New York Times

An intimate acoustic Tribute to the music of JONI MITCHELL.

Featuring songs 'California', 'Blue', 'Woodstock' 'Both Sides Now',

'Coyote', 'Big Yellow Taxi', 'A Case Of You'. UK singer/songwriters Zervas & Pepper present what they consider to be the nucleus of Mitchell's work, that pivotal break-out period 1968-1976 with the voice, guitar and piano front and centre. An intimate acoustic evening that should feel like the audience is having a private listening session at Joni's house in Laurel Canyon during the summer of love.

Mark Thomas : Gaffa Tapes

Mark Thomas : Gaffa Tapes

Jokes, rants, politics, play and the occasional sing song.

If you don’t know what he does ask your parents.

In his time he has won awards (current total is now officially ‘f**kloads’), forced a politician to resign, changed laws on tax and protest, become Guinness Book of Records world record holder for number of protests in 24 hours, taken the police to court 3 times and won, walked the length of the Israeli Wall in the West Bank and generally mucked about trying to have fun and fuck the right people off.

This show is more of the above.

“You’ll leave recommitted to the fight against this appalling authoritarian government, to keep that tradition alive.” Guardian 2021
