Film Screening & Open Discussion: WitchHunt

WitchHunt: The attempt to smash the most hopeful movement of our lifetime

Through interviews, analysis, archive footage and witness testimony, WitchHunt explores the connections between the attacks on Labour, the ongoing tragedy Palestine and the wider struggle against race-based oppression. It argues that, if it is to mean anything at all, the fight against racism must be a shared one, that includes all peoples.  

Jon Pullman, director / Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi, executive producer.

"Anyone who speaks or writes in the public domain about antisemitism and the current state of the Labour Party has a duty to see this film and address the issues it raises." - Avi Shlaim, historian. 

"This impeccably- executed film exposes with chilling accuracy the terrifying threat that now confronts democracy, and the depressing intractability of the Israel-Palestine situation" - Mike Leigh (Peterloo, Mr Turner).

"It packs a powerful punch, telling a story we just aren't hearing at the moment." - Peter Kosminsky (Wolf Hall, The Promise).

Film starts at 8pm, followed by an open discussion of Q & A's.

Special Guests include: Jon Pullman, the director, Naomi Wimborne-Idriss, executive producer, and Jackie Walker, the main protagonist in the Film, who will all be answering questions and taking part in the discussion afterwards. 

Tickets are just £6, buy yours here!

Independents Day

Independents Day: a different kind of book event, featuring voices from outside the mainstream. As publishing becomes more corporate and risk-averse, small imprints are bringing new talent to our attention, using crowd-funding, print-on-demand and other ways of breaking the mould. What better place to showcase their work than Hay? Spanning fiction, non-fiction, local interest and poetry, a varied programme of talks, readings and conversations will tap into the creative energy. Join us, meet with authors and catch the fringe as it moves centre stage.  Signed copies for sale. Refreshments available all day.

Admission free.

Shop Front Heroes are a five piece, original rock band from Mid-Wales. Described as an "intelligent bombast" by Adam Walton on BBC Radio Wales, their style hits you with elements of rock, pop, classic rock and alternative indie, with a taste for the epic and grandiose. 

Recent success includes a sold out show, supporting Mississippi rockers The Weeks at The Louisiana, Bristol accompanied by regular airplay on BBC Wales, BBC Shropshire and BBC Introducing in Hereford and Worcester, including a live session at HopFest, Kidderminster:

“Shop Front Heroes played the festival set of the weekend. They absolutely smashed it with a raw energy and passion that left the audience transfixed” – Andrew Marston – BBC Introducing 

 #SavingBritishRock

Hay’s indie-rockers INCLINES are gonna blow you away.

2018 was the breakthrough year with stellar performances at How The Light Gets In 2018 and Lakefest 2018 for BBC Introducing. Their debut single ‘Rich Kid’ landed with those in the know taking a keen interest. Hunt it down on digital platforms and YouTube. 2019 starts with new tunes bustling next to their signature songs of melody, bounce, subtlety and crunch

INCLINES are on an upward trajectory. Join in.

Expect rhythmic acoustic guitar, kickbox, powerful vocals, lap slide, harmonica and loop pedal, with flavours of folk, dance, country, blues and more.

Friday Live: A Different Thread

British / American duo – A Different Thread, deliver an intoxicating mix of Beatlesque folk-rock meets Gillian Welch dark country.

It’s not every day that you meet someone in the street and decide to tour the world with them, yet, ‘A Different Thread’ has done just that. Traveling songwriters: Robert Jackson (Lichfield, Staffordshire) and Alicia Best (Durham, North Carolina) first sang
together in 2016 while busking in the streets of Galway, Ireland. Inspired by the folk songs that have criss-crossed the Atlantic over the generations in true folk fashion, they joined forces and went full throttle on a tour that spans across the UK, Europe and the US (and even down to Guatemala and back); living on the road, penning new songs and cultivating their own unique blend of folk, country and blues, or as they call it: British-Americana.

Friday Live: Lewis Barfoot

“Best known for the ethereal poise of her crystal singing voice” Folk and Honey. 

Described by Irish Radio International as a maker of “Delicious music: A massage of the heart, a whisper to the soul”. Anglo-Irish singer songwriter Lewis Barfoot works with an uncomplicated loveliness of sound, combining her ethereal, evocative vocals with original compositions and reinventions of traditional songs from Ireland and the UK. A gifted storyteller transporting the listener to strange, magical, otherworldly places.

There’s a timelessness about her work, and as a bearer of the old songs she keeps the legacy of trad music alive in her unique creations. Frequently compared to the likes of Lisa Hannigan, Ane Brun, and Joni Mitchell. Her first recording, the independently released EP “Catch Me” as heard on Johnny Coppin’s BBC Radio 2 Folk show was described by Invisible Filter as “Utterly brilliant”. She is currently recording her debut album “Folkalism” with Scottish Fiddler Essa Flett, Welsh Cellist Hannah Thomas and English Clarinetist Matt Dibble.

Saturday Shenanigans: Blackbeard's Tea Party 'Ten YAAR Anniversary Tour'

Blackbeard’s Tea Party’s bold and riotous modern folk rock is built for late nights and big stages. Traditional songs and tunes are given a heavy rock edge with earth shattering riffs, playful arrangements and driving dance rhythms. This is gutsy folk rock dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century.

The band celebrate a decade in music in 2019 and will commemorate this with their 'Ten YAAR Anniversary Tour' in the Autumn.

Blackbeard's Tea Party believe a live show should be a spectacle for the eyes as well as the ears. Outlandish outfits, costume changes, DIY props, unhinged stage antics and chaotic choreography all add up to an engaging, high-octane show that inevitably leaves audiences cheering for more.

Their most recent release, the 5-track EP ‘Leviathan!’, explores the romanticized glories and the full gruesome horrors of the 19th century whaling industry. The record brings with it a bigger, bolder sound and a revamped live show, employing a heftier rhythm section with their new double-Drum Kit set up.

‘Contemporary folk rock at its most infectious’ - R2

‘York’s answer to The Pogues, but with cleaner fingernails’ - The Telegraph

‘Blackbeard's Tea Party restored my faith in foot-tapping, fun, energy-packed music

recently. In short: they make shanties chic’ -Roger Crow, Huffington Post

‘Gloriously wild, gamely OTT and sharp. This is convincing and essential’ - fRoots 

‘Barnstorming buccaneers belting our riff-tastic folk rock’ - Songlines
