The Bookshop

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • 1h 53min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Isabel Coixet
  • Cast: Emily Mortimer, Bill Nighy, Patricia Clarkson
  • UK release: 29 June 2018

Florence (Mortimer) is a war widow who causes a stir in a 1950s Suffolk seaside town when she opens a bookshop. Like modern-day Brief Encounter, this adaptation of Penelope Fitzgerald’s novel is all unspoken sentiment which never descends into mawkishness. Restrained but quietly subversive.

  • UK release: 24 August 2018

Fiona (Thompson) is a High Court judge who finds herself becoming involved with a Jehovah’s Witness teenager (Whitehead) who refuses a blood transfusion for his leukaemia. Heavy-handed adaptation by McEwan of his own novel; not entirely convincing but Eyre brings out fine performances.

A Christmas Carol

Christmas, the season of cheer and goodwill to all men! But sadly, Ebenezer Scrooge doesn't quite see it that way. With the heart-warming story of one man's redemption Charles Dickins created the 'Merry Christmas' we know today. Cruel and miserly Scrooge cares nothing for others and spreads gloom and unhappiness all…

  • US
  • 1h 44min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Marc Forster
  • Cast: Hayley Atwell, Ewan McGregor, Jim Cummings
  • UK release: 17 August 2018

Christopher Robin (McGregor) is a workaholic who neglects his family, until he re-encounters his childhood toys. Whimsical and unoriginal back-to-childhood tale, not saved by McGregor’s dexterity or Cummings’s lovely voice work as Pooh.

The Escape

  • 4 stars
  • 2017
  • 1h 45min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Dominic Savage
  • Cast: Gemma Arterton, Dominic Cooper, Frances Barber

An ordinary woman (Arterton) makes an extraordinary decision which will change her life forever. An uncompromising, claustrophobic and intelligent domestic drama that refuses any and all easy answers, led by a heartbreaking performance from Arterton.

Searching

  • 2 stars
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Aneesh Chaganty
  • Cast: John Cho, Debra Messing, Michelle La
  • UK release: 31 August 2018

David (Cho) is mourning the loss of his wife, but when his daughter (La) disappears, he has to look for her with resourceful cop Rosemary (Messing). A childish whodunnit with a ridiculously contrived story, concluding with a convoluted solution that’s farcical to anyone with a basic knowledge of police work.

Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures! The Movie

  • 1 star
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 25min
  • U
  • Directed by: David Stoten
  • Cast: Teresa Gallagher, John Hasler, Peter Andre, Keith Wickham, Rob Rackstraw, Matt Wilkinson, Nigel Pilkington, Christopher Ragland
  • UK release: 20 July 2018

Thomas the Tank Engine (voiced by Hasler) heads on a global adventure, encouraged by a free-spirited race car (Andre) and a potential romance with engine Nia (Grundy). A bland, impersonal plot will fail to entertain anyone except the tiniest of tots.

Hi Wilf, I see your question is few years old now, don't know if you ever got a reply............ The Wyllyotts Theatre in potters Bar was opened in 1990 or 91. At the time Acker Bilk lived a few hundred yards away. There is nobody working there now who was working there at that time.

1. Wilf James16 Jan 2013, 2:03am Report

I wish to obtain information about an event that took place some years ago at the Wyllyotts Centre.
There was a concert organised by the Rotary Club with the Mid Herts Jazz Ochestra on Wednesday 20th November. (The year isn't specified on the programme I have.)
I think that it was 1985 but it could have been 1974 or 1991. These three years all have the 20th November as a Wednesday.
My reason for asking is that I have just taken over the job of publicity officer for the Mid Herts Jazz Orchestra and I am try to gather what information I can about the history of the orchestra. It was founded by the jazz musician Eddie Harvey in 1963. The orchestra is still going strong and gives concerts on the second Monday each month (except in August) at the sports pavilion in Sandridge.
If you have a copy of the same programme you will note that the telephone numbers are missing the 1 after the 0.
The main heading on the programme is:
THE EXCITING SOUNDS OF THE BIG BANDS
There is a useful bit of the history of the orchestra in the programme
I would be obliged if you can tell me anything about this concert or any other concerts given by the orchestra in the Wyllyotts Centre.
Thank you for taking the time to read this request.
