We are pleased to present All the People, a film programme curated by Josephine Lanyon featuring four short films that fuse subject and landscape, fact and fiction, live action and archival materials. In this absorbing series of works, people cast their futures by re-imagining Britain’s rural past. The title is drawn from the county’s fiercely independent 1911 motto ‘all the people of Somerset’. Commissioned by Somerset Art Works, the programme will be toured to other venues between 28 September to 1 October during Somerset Art Weeks Festival.

The Roxy Comedy Night Pilot
Mark your diaries for the very first Axbridge Roxy Comedy Night on Thursday, November 2nd, in what we hope will become a regular event – with your support. The pilot event is aimed at seeing if there’s a public appetite for an evening of stand-up, funny short films and crazy performance poetry. Hosted by The Roxy and compered by Axbridge resident Harry Mottram the evening will introduce emerging talent from Somerset and beyond with several acts that will have you chuckling, chortling and hopefully laughing hysterically in the country’s smallest but best performance space.

The doors and bar open at 7pm with the fun starting at 7.30pm with a 20 minute interval, wrapping up before 10pm. Tickets are available from the
Axbridge Chemist and Post Office, or the Roxy box office (07725 051523) at £6. For more information, or if you are interested in performing, email harryfmottram@gmail.com or call 07789 864769.
