Teachers

Blackeyed Theatre revives its highly-acclaimed production of John Godber’s classic comedy about life at a struggling ‘sink school’ for Mr Nixon, an unsuspecting new drama teacher. Featuring breathtaking ensemble performances and a bang-up-to-date soundtrack, Teechers brings to life an array of terrifying teachers and hopeless pupils through the unique eyes of Salty, Gail and Hobby; three Year 11 students about to leave school for good. Crammed full of unforgettable characters, political left-hooks and razor-sharp comedy, Teechers is more relevant today than ever, a modern classic with something vital to say about education for the ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’.

Russian Philharmonic, Cambridge Corn Exchange, Wed 7 March

Russian Phillharmonic

‘Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3 began to overshadow its more famous older brother when the film ‘Shine’ (about pianist David Helfgott) was released.  This intensely physical (for the soloist!) piece is joined by Tchaikovsky’s romantic Sleeping Beauty suite and his emotional and profoundly personal 4th symphony with its ebullient final movement harking back to his nationalistic enthusiasm for Russia’s folk heritage.’
