The Beautiful hostel, rich in YHA history, is lovely but falling apart. External forces are out to grab and turn it into a golf club. Cue Connie, first ever warden, with a heart as big as her rucksack. She takes us on a journey through the YHA’s past in the hope of securing it’s future. Through thickets and thin we’ve managed to keep our promise of somewhere cheap to sleep, if that’s threatened we must defend it, looking to the passed in order to transcend it with harmonies, hills and humour. join Mikron on a hike through the history of hosteling.

    Friday 20th October 8pm “Podfather” (The Guardian) and star of Radio 4’s Relativity, Richard Herring gets to the half century (against all odds) and looks at how his life has changed in the last decade, from irresponsible, single kidult, literally fighting his way through a mid-life crisis, to married father who is mid-way to the telegram from the Queen (though given she will be 140 in 2067, she might forget to send it). Following on from “Oh F***, I’m 40!”, this is the second (and let’s face it, almost certainly penultimate) instalment in Herring’s once-a-decade examination of ageing. Tickets £15

    Fri 20th October, 7:30pm at Red Brick Auditorium Tickets: £2 - £19 Individuality finding harmonious expression in ensemble – this has to be the quintessence of the Vogler Quartet, an ensemble which can claim the distinction of retaining its original membership since its formation in 1985. With an intelligent approach to the genre of chamber music, a brilliant playing technique, interpretive tactfulness and a vibrant ensemble spirit, Tim Vogler, Frank Reinecke, Stefan Fehlandt and Stephan Forck have created a unique string quartet sound which consistently offers new insights into the genre. The ensemble’s extensive repertoire of classical literature for string quartet from Haydn to Bartók and the Second Viennese School is complemented by lesser known works and world premières, such as those of works by Ian Wilson, Jörg Widmann, Mauricio Kagel, and Taner Akyol. During its long career, the quartet has performed with Lynn Harrell, James Levine, Bernard Greenhouse, Boris Pergamenschikow and Menahem Pressler, to name a few. Projects with Tatjana Masurenko, Jochen Kowalski, Avi Avital, Jörg Widmann, and Finghin Collins are underway.
