Teak Show & Film Show

Now we know nothing about TeakShow apart from what they tell us here. Clearly they provide good references and you'd interview them for the job wouldn't you? Not a lot of use crying for dear old mum - we lost her 31 years ago. So I'll try and battle through this one on my own. TeakShow is/are here for the busy middle weekend of the Fringe. Also Carnival day (17th) and the Film Weekend (where I should declare an interest - but since it will probably lose money it's an odd sort of interest to declare. I don't remember any MPs getting in trouble for not declaring that they had lost money in a public-spirited kind of way).


With sell-out audiences and rave reviews from their shows at: Edinburgh Festival, Leicester Comedy Festival, Oxford Fringe, Brighton Festival and Henley Fringe, TeakShow is now set to unleash its Twisted Sketches on Buxton!

Relentlessly and impertinently slick, this is razor-sharp, character sketch comedy. You’ll meet crazed twitchers, filthy flappers, a psychotic Bill Sykes, and a robot love god. You’ll be left scarred and breathless and crying for your mum. But in a good way.

TeakShow is:
* Jackie Stirling, performer (Holby City, The Knock, This Life, ChuckleVision, EastEnders)
* Johnny Hansler, performer/writer (Hotel Babylon, My Family, Queen’s Sister; Peter Cook in ‘Goodbye - the Afterlife of Cook and Moore’, Leicester Square Theatre)
* Maggie Inchley, director (Associate Director of Comedians Theatre Company: School for Scandal, Gagarin Way, The Zoo Story)
* Stephen Dinsdale, script editor(theatre,radio,film:Anorak of Fire)
* Peter Vincent, writer (Two Ronnies, Dave Allen, Frankie Howerd)
and writers Jules Bower, Griff Phillips, Chris Perera.

Buxton's Film weekend kicks off on Friday July 16th (7.30pm) at The Railway, Bridge Street with an award-winning short documentary.

Tales of Moss Side and Hulme

It is the result of an inter-generational exploration of life in Hulme and Moss Side in the 1960-80s through contemporary BBC North West regional television news and features that were restored by North West Film Archive. The restored footage was taken into Manchester schools, community groups and businesses in order to stimulate people’s recollections of the Moss Side and Hulme areas.

The film combines this footage with personal stories and archives from contributors. People recall stories of living, working and growing up in the area in this award winning 30 minute documentary which blends contem22/porary interviews with news and home movie footage.

The film will be intrduced by the film maker Karen Gabay and she will be available afterwards to chat with the audience.
