The Best of April

From the 4th to the 7th at the EMF Theatre in Tonbridge, local theatre group LAMPS will be performing Singin' In The Rain. Filled with every memorable moment from the film and a downpour of unforgettable songs, this is the perfect entertainment for any fan of the golden age of movie and theatre musicals alike.

There's wide variety of musical events at the Assembly Hall this month that might whet your appetite! Rumours of Fleetwood Mac (9th), a 'Pop Divas' tribute (11th), an Everley Brothers tribute (12th), The Drifters (21st) and, my favourite, double MOBO award-winning YolanDa Brown ; the premier female saxophonist in the UK, known for seamlessly blending jazz, soul and reggae (22nd).

There's more top-class music in Sevenoaks where St Edith Folk club entertain bassist and singer Miranda Sykes on the 20th. Miranda is probably best known for her work with reknowned folk duo Show of Hands.

The Forum continue to push the boundary of what they offer on the 18th with the story of Ethel Smyth, composer, writer and suffragette. Ethel was the first woman composer to be performed at the Royal Opera House. The story is told in her own words and compositions, in a flowing fusion of drama and music performed by contralto Lucy Stevens and pianist Elizabeth Marcus.

My pick of the cultural screenings this time around is Giselle. Showing at the Odeon on the 25th.

Hailed as a masterpiece of 21st century dance, Akram Khan's Giselle comes to cinemas for the first time with Artistic Director of English National Ballet, Tamara Rojo, dancing the role of Giselle, one of a community of migrant workers cast out of their jobs in a condemned garment factory.

Giving ballet fans the opportunity to see this award-winning production in glorious high definition, this re-imagining of one of the greatest romantic ballets was filmed live at the Liverpool Empire in October 2017.

For what may be a more traditional interpretation, the Odeon are also showing the Bolshoi's version of Giselle on the 8th. Why not go to both to compare these completely different styles.
