Things To Do – April 2018

Bad Manners 6th April

bad-manners

Bad Manners were one of the many bands to take their inspiration from the Specials and the ska revival movement in England in the late ’70s

Bad Manners, composed of vocalist Buster Bloodvessel (born Douglas Trendle), Louis Cook (guitar), David Farren (bass), Martin Stewart (keyboards), Brian Tuitti (drums), Gus Herman (trumpet), Chris Kane (saxophone), and Andrew Marson (saxophone), were one of the many bands to take their inspiration from the Specials and the ska revival movement in England in the late ’70s. They quickly became the novelty favourites of the fad through their bald, enormous-bodied frontman’s silly on-stage antics, earning early exposure through 2-Tone Records package tours and an appearance in the live documentary Dance Craze.

“Blown away by this band- you must see them if you can!” – Jeremy Vine, BBC Radio 2

From The Jam is comprised of legendary former ‘The Jam’ bassist Bruce Foxton, vocalist & guitarist Russell Hastings, drummer Mike Randon, and Andy Fairclough on Hammond and piano.

Over the past 11 years From The Jam have toured relentlessly, having played almost 1000 headline shows in the UK since their inception in 2007. Throughout this time, they’ve gained a reputation for the kind of incendiary live performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago, being described as “incredibly exciting” by the Daily Mirror and “sounding dynamic as ever” by the Daily Record.

‘The Public Gets What The Public Wants’ show is, as Russell Hastings explains, “basically the big festival set, hit after hit.”

“A sincere touch and lashings of fiery rock’n’roll”- Guitar and Bass

Poppies: Wave at Fort Nelson

Fort nelson

14-18 NOW is presenting the iconic poppy structures Wave and Weeping Window at selected locations around the UK until 2018.

Royal Armouries will be hosting Poppies: Wave at Fort Nelson next spring.

Poppies: Wave is from the installation ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ poppies and original concept by artist Paul Cummins and installation designed by Tom Piper – by Paul Cummins Ceramics Limited in conjunction with Historic Royal Palaces, originally at HM Tower of London 2014.

The installation at Fort Nelson will be open to the public from Friday 13 April until Sunday 24 June 2018. Admission will be free.

Poppies: Wave is a sweeping arch of bright red poppy heads suspended on towering stalks. This sculpture, and Weeping Window, by artist Paul Cummins and designer Tom Piper were initially conceived as the key dramatic sculptural elements in the installation ‘Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red’ at the Tower of London in the summer and autumn of 2014. Over the course of their time at the Tower, the two sculptures were gradually surrounded by a vast field of ceramic poppies, each one planted by a volunteer in memory of every British or Colonial life lost at the Front during the First World War. In their original setting they captured the public imagination and were visited by over five million people.
