Fret and Fiddle

Fret and Fiddle

Award-winning musicians Fret and Fiddle present a musical journey of the legendary violinist Stephane Grappelli's life. The quartet take you to the early Hot Club days from the swinging Parisian night clubs of the 1920's, through the war years when Grappelli played at the luxurious London hotels such as Claridges, to Stephane's golden years touring into his Eighties. Delight in their renditions of favourites like Jalousie, the famous Tango that Grappelli duetted to Yehudi Menhuin with on the Michael Parkinson Show back in 1971, and relax to the beautiful ballads of Stardust and My Funny Valentine. Tap your toes to Cole Porter's Anything Goes and be transported to those Charleston days and the razzle-dazzle of that swinging fiddle!

I am a wheelchair user and find it difficult to go to the theatre to enjoy a good film or take in a 'bit of Culture' now and again.Flicks in The Sticks brings a lot of joy to so many people who otherwise would miss out.

Sue Macdonald

Totally loved 'The boy who bit Picasso' It was so heartwarming, funny and made me nearly cry at the end! Totally inspired me and makes me want to make theatre!

Kate Johnston

I heard the Ensemble Sakhioba and want to say what an extraordinary experience it was. A really remarkable performance - thank you for bringing them to Shropshire and I'm glad you achieved a very full audience for them.

We are regular flicks goers and we would be lost without your service. I can't tell you how much your screenings mean to people like us

Living in 'the sticks' limits access to the larger cinemas, consequently Flicks is a lovely way of seeing fairly recent films, without the hassle of planning a journey beforehand. Long may it last.

A really enjoyable experience. Friendly atomosphere and heart warming film (Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) Would love the chance to do it again. What a good idea for community spirit.

J L-Lakelin

Looking forward to showing films again this season. Like putting on a favourite winter coat!

Cate

I am 86 and I am a big fan of flicks. In the villages its lovely, the proper way to do it, have a glass of wine and a chat, its so much more than just a film

G.S.

Flicks is the lynch pin for most of what goes on in our village

The Film shows give me a reason to leave the house
