Aberdyfi Rowing Club fundraiser with the fantastic Tongue 'n' Groove!

30th March at 7.30pm! Come and join us for a fantastic evening of music and help us to achieve our goal of completing the Celtic Challenge – the World’s longest true rowing race where teams race from Arklow in Ireland to Aberystwyth, a distance of about 90 miles. We will be accompanied by a safety boat and all profits from this event will go to help pay for this essential part of the race.   Tongue ‘n’ Groove are a local band from Machynlleth who are renowned for getting people on the dance floor and giving everyone a brilliant night out. The music will be “a bit of everything from Funk, Soul, Rhythm & Blues to Rock and Roll. If you can dance to it, we’ll probably play it!”   There will be a bar, including cocktails, and raffle on the night.   

Bubble Schmeisis

WELCOME TO THE STEAM BATHS. WELCOME HOME.
 
In East London’s last remaining bath house writer and performer Nick Cassenbaum finds what he’s looking for, and he’s touring the world to tell you all about it.
 
Bubbemeises is Yiddish for a grandmother’s story, a tall story, an old wives’ tale. A schvitz is a Jewish steam bath where old men go to wash, relax, complain and rejuvenate, to exchange jokes and gossip and to swap bubbemeisis.
 
Writer and street performer Nick Cassenbaum has been trying to make sense of his Jewish identity ever since he was a young boy. He tried everything - going to Spurs, summer camps, barbershops, religion even. All, alas, to no avail. It wasn't until his blind grandfather took him to the schvitz in Canning Town, East London that he found what he was looking for. Here men enact the ancient washing ritual of schmeissing, and, as he lay naked being schmeissed by his grandfather, he knew he had found what he was looking for, but above all, he knew he had to make a show about it.
 
In Bubble Schmeisis Nick and his accompanying klezmer musicians invite you to join them as they conjure the enveloping warmth of this last remaining authentic steam bath house in East London. Amongst the steam and ritual Nick will take you with him as he embarks on a journey schlepping through memories of the milestones in his life when he questioned but also celebrated aspects of his heritage to find the place where he belongs. It’s about Nick finding his identity and wanting to keep the spirit of the steam baths alive, giving an up-close insight into a community that is fading and a folk history of a once vibrant culture.
 
A hit with critics and audiences at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival, Bubble Schmeisis is full of intimate and personal true stories about identity, home and getting washed by old men. The show will strike a chord with anyone who looks to investigate their past to understand their present.

Atlantic Ladies

ATLANTIC LADIES AN OAR-FULLY OAR-SOME MUSICAL ADVENTURE BY CHRIS ELDON LEE
 
The true story of three women in a boat (two from Shropshire and one from Wales) who bravely became the oldest female team to row right across an ocean
 
"Funny and poignant, uplifting and inspirational, 'Atlantic Ladies is a triumph of theatrical storytelling. This inventive production is more than an entertaining show, it is an event marking the achievement of three women (with an average age of 57) who, without prior experience, decided to ‘do something crazy’. The audience gave the play a deserved standing ovation!"  Paul Higgins, Royal Shakespeare Company 
 
"This show is seriously good folks" Lorraine
"I laughed and cried – a beautiful story" Lara
"It had us all in stitches" Sasha
"Loved it, loved it, loved it!" Melanie
