Doors 7.00pm Artists on stage 7.30pm,

PEE WEE ELLIS & JASON REBELLO DUO

It’s almost too good to be true: AOTA is delighted to present a duo of kindred spirits who between them have covered a range of music and collaborations wide enough to be an all-star festival bill in themselves.  Both musicians have dug deep into soul, rock, funk and R&B but jazz is their heartland – their duo is a perfect partnership of groove, smiles, mutual appreciation, musical empathy and inspired improvisation.

THE SHINING

Produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick and based on Stephen King's novel of the same name The Shining is a spine-chilling, psychologically-gripping horror story starring Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Scatman Crothers, and Danny Lloyd, all grappling with supernatural and psychic powers driving them inexorably towards danger and insanity.  Almost too perfect for Halloween and definitely not suitable for those of a nervous disposition!

*** THIS IS THE EXTENDED, ORIGINAL US RELEASE WITH AN EXTRA 23 MINUTES OF FOOTAGE UNSEEN IN UK THEATRICAL RELEASES OR TV BROADCASTS ***

Plus Pearl & Dean , Cartoons, Intermission, Popcorn, Ice Cream and other delights!

ABOUT US

Widcombe Social Club is a non-profit community focused venue catering classes and events for both local and regional groups. We are a registered charitable organisation and host various community events throughout the year - we also work in partnership with local charities to provide a space from which to plan, network, and fund-raise for their causes.

The WSC has been an important part of the area's heritage since it's inception in 1899 - originally found at 25 Claverton Buildings on Widcombe's high-street as the 'Widcombe Workmen’s Club', it officially became 'Widcombe Social Club' after moving to its new and current premises in 1970.

After a multi-million pound redevelopment deal was completed in 2012, the face of the Social Club (and with it Widcombe Hill) was changed forever - re-opening in 2016, the 'New Club' is a light and modern venue which still holds true to its historic roots, retaining its membership system in a more inclusive form and acting as a hub for community-ran events and providing entertainment with local audiences in mind. Find out more about our history here!
